Blocked by Great Firewall & We Don't Care

  1. OM, I know users care, at least your Chinese subscribers like me. https://www.anothr.com/feeds/shared/4737132 The fact is there are thousands of web sites never know the reason why they were blocked in China. Most of the time, it’s not because of content, but implication of similar web sites or close IP scopes.

    But I totoally agree with you that it’s not a pity, but a loss of China and Chinese people about their future of creation and image. The government does evil because it’s a totalitarian regime. But there’s also the responsibility from people, they should fight together.

  2. Currently Chinese political space is going through a major flux with many key government ministers being replaced. Hu Jintao is consolidating his powers and the current phase of what I call “more-than-usual” restrictions on the internet has something to do with these changes and the upcoming 5-yearly party congress. I think things will settle down after the October congress.

  3. I know you said you don’t care presumably to be provocative, but those walls won’t come tumbling down unless we blow hard, you know, and that means complaining against censorship, infringements of human rights and more…

  4. Issac and David,

    I agree with – I don’t care because I know folks like you will figure out a way to go past the firewall. There is a certain short sightedness in this firewall approach. This kind of mind control doesn’t work. Tell me what needs to be done on my end, and I am happy to do something about it. I need your input.

  5. I still think Google’s decision to comply with Chinese censorship was their biggest mistake ever. It will always be the main argument when questioning their commitment to do no evil and respect their users’ wishes when it comes to things like privacy and security of information.

  6. To your knowledge you guys have already be blocked for quite a long time, along with other great blog writers, even Feedburner too, but we got our way to make it though the GFW, also RSS on Greader is also a good way to read your posts.
    Anyway, since there is nothing we can do to change the situation expect cursing a lot, I think the situation will goes on for a long time.
