A bit more on censorship

Since I wrote about Chinese censorship the other day, the news has broken that Google may pull out of China because of attempts to hack into the gmail accounts of human rights activists. Having famously capitulated to the censor, Google is now saying that it wants freedom to publish as it will. You'll remember that access to this blog has been pretty erratic in China - at a rough guess it won't be very easy to find it today - the firewalls are up very high.

On the other hand, sexual morality just doesn't seem to be an issue any more. To underline what I was saying last time, a comment in Chinese has appeared on my entry "New Year blog". On closer investigation, it turns out to be a link to a Chinese porn site.

Happy surfing, everybody....
