Banned in China



I have noticed for some time that I have not been receiving any traffic from China, although I do get a half-dozen or so visitors from Hong Kong every week. Just to make sure, I clicked on the Great Firewall of China Test [Link http://greatfirewallofchina.org/test/ no longer active] and took the test; sure enough, Planck's Constant is banned in Red China.

You will notice a new, bright red banner in the upper right corner on my home page, courtesy of Basil at Basil's Blog, where you can get one too, if you like.


For those interested here is the breakdown of country origin of my last 7,750 visitors from the past four days (Courtesy of ClustrMaps):

My Previous Posts on China

Although China summarily banned entire sets of bloggers using the same hosting server, I am honored to have been banned after only a handful of articles critical of the Chinese, here are a few:

China Fights Aids

Amazingly China knows they have exactly 46,702 women sex workers in Yunnan and Sichuan. In addition, I am surprised that the Chinese cannot take on a project like this without help from the British. They are sitting on an ocean of trade dollars. I guess if the West is stupid enough to hand out the money there will always be those eager to receive donations.

What you get when you type "Huge Pussy" in Chinese Google

CNET News.com discovered "Google's new China search engine not only censors many Web sites that question the Chinese government, but it goes further than similar services from Microsoft and Yahoo by targeting teen pregnancy, homosexuality, dating, beer and jokes.

In addition, CNET News.com has found that contrary to Google co-founder Sergey Brin's promise to inform users when their search results are censored, the company frequently filters out sites without revealing it."

List of Chinese Nobel Prize Laureates

With over a billion people, native Chinese do not win Scientific Nobel Prizes for the same reasons that Arabs living under Islam do not win Scientific Nobel Prizes.


Other bloggers:

Of course, American Internet companies help the Chinese authories by turning in bloggers who are critical of the government: [the Internationale: learning to be different] Citizen Journalism in China

Yahoo is turning in bloggers to Chinese authority. Chinese authority does not allow freedom of speech. Yahoo apparently is sandwiched in between staying in business in China and pleasing the authority.

Anonymous bloggers who criticize the government and express pro-democracy views are being arrested, charged with "inciting subversion," convicted (sometimes based on evidence provided by Yahoo), and handed prison sentences of up to ten years.

UPDATE

2009 - Looks like the ban has been lifted, I am once again getting hits from mainland China. See my updated article No Longer Banned in China.
