As some of our commenters have noted, the China Blog is now unblocked in China. We were censored last fall after the Great Time Blog Migration to WordPress. It looks like the mainland’s block on blogs hosted by WordPress has now been lifted. The reasons for such actions are never explained, but the end of the recent National People’s Congress meeting in Beijing may have something to do with it. The web slows drastically and more sites are blocked when sensitive events and anniversaries come around.
Access improved some time around the middle of last week. Already comments are returning to old China Blog levels. But the Net Nanny is cruel and capricious, so for you China-based readers who’d like to call us idiots, your time is now.
