So apparently hunger strikes work after all.

One step closer. Today, jailed Iranian-American dissident Roxana Saberi had her original term replaced with a suspended sentence and was freed from prison, allowing her to leave the country immediately. However, there is no word yet from Iran regarding our own Hossein Derakhshan, hoder on Metafilter, who was jailed along with Saberi three months ago. [more inside]

For those who are interested, Iranian officials have confirmed hoder's arrest. His "case is under preliminary investigation and he is in custody." The old (closed) Metatalk thread about his initial disappearance is here.
