Am I just getting paranoid, or are the brainless morons who censor the
web in China getting seriously heavy-duty these days?
When I begin an online session, I have half a chance fo accessing
'dangerous, subversive' material (like, how long is the Mekong river,
where do giant pandas live, when was the Tower of London built, etc)
from a source like Wikipedia if I access it through a proxy server
such as that provided by www.anonymouse.org. But within a minute or
two, I can't use anonymouse any more.
Is someone really watching my every move? It really feels like that.
I want some travel information about Tibet. Now Tibet is, of course, a
part of China and always has been and always will be and so on. So
presumably the Chinese goverment would like to help me find tourist
information about the place, so I can go and spend a few dollars in
one of their more impoverished provinces.
Apparently not. After half an hour of trying, I have been unable to
access ANY Tibet-related website.
And since I have been searching for Tibet too often, I now cannot even
access Google either.
OK, I'm just a tourist and it doesn't matter. But the Chinese
government is doing this to the whole nation. It makes me sick.
