That’s what we have been. Blocked. Great Fire Wall-ed. Or Net nanny-ized. Or, as some Chinese netizens say in reference to their President’s most famous slogan, “harmonized” (è¢«åè°ç), which has an authentically creepy Orwellian ring to it….or maybe it wounds more like “neuralized” from the Men in Black movie, which would make it more silly than creepy.
Anyway, no surprise this happened as all three of us had posts about that large square in the capital city where something happened in 1989. The machinery that blocks is automatic, evidently. Inside China, our blog still doesn’t load right. No pictures and everything else awry. Be interesting to see how long it takes to come back to normal, ie when the offending posts disappear from the main page in the normal course of things, will the problems stop?
