Thai SPs are required by law to block sites deemed objectionable by the government of Thailand; common reasons given include lese majeste and/or other materials deemed injurious to 'national security'.

Thailand's Ministry of Information & Computer Technology is the relevant governmental bureau - their Web site may be found here:

As all this sort of thing is considered a sensitive subject in Thailand, it's doubtful you'll get a response, IMHO.
