Chinese Gov banned Google in China

Last night after 9 pm, www.google.com was discovered no longer available in China, nor was gmail. 1 week earlier, national television broadcasted a teenager (later found out working in that television) accused of  pornographic sites via google search.

However, only the most innocent people believe controlling internet pornography was the true purpose. During economic crisis and mass unemployment, social conficts in China are near fire. Recently a hostess (Deng Yujiao) in a bath resort stabbed a public official to death, and she claimed to do self defense against being rpd. Evidence was destroyed after police started investigation, the hostess was set free, not because she was not guilty in doing that but because she was "mentally disturbed".

The banning of google is only one event in Chinese gov's campaign to tighten control of speech. It will force all computers sold in China to automaticly load a blocking software called "Green Dam", also in the name of anti-pornography. It also claims to enforce forum moderator real name registration, and mobile phone real name registration, out of  "good intention", of course.

This morning, www.google.com was reopened in China. But this time, its default page is in www.google.cn, google's subsidery in China, which abides Chinese rules. Google struggled to put a "google in english" tab in this page to keep the last window for Chinese people to have a glimpse on the outside world. These changes breaches the rumor last night staff in google went on a strike, which again, is Chinese gov's manipulation.

Wow! That's CRAZY!!!
How interesting...
If I had lived in China and they blocked Google I would be sooooo unhappy!!!!
I'm glad they gave China some sort of Google though.

Yes, but now they have 3 things banned. They might ban this forum next.

Re: Chinese Gov banned Google in China

Oh no!! faint  Oh, I get ya now, thanx bobby.
Why would they ban this forum though? Why did they ban google anyway? What's so bad about that? Sure you can look up anything you want but that shouldn't concern the whole nation.

Re: Chinese Gov banned Google in China

I was just so pissed off as to let outsiders like you know about it. Even if I could have no chance to get to know the outside world, I wanted to leave a chance for the outside to know what happened in China.
