The Great Firewall

Ok China. You blocked youtube about 2 months ago and still haven't released it. I understand you don't like videos showing violent rebellions against the government. Especially when they involve Tibet.

(...that's where i would normally insert a slick hyperlink, instead of this mess... http://www.infowars.com/china-blocks-youtube-for-tibet-clips/).

I understand this issue is very sensitive and reaches far deeper than my Western mind, with it's limited exposure to your cultural issues, can comprehend. I'm working on it, but it's still pretty confusing. Anyway, my point is, i get it. I'm with you. I got your back.

But Blogspot? Really?!? Why can't i see that anymore? I really hate having to tunnel in through a proxy to post on my blog. I can't do anything cool, like bold or italics, and i certainly can't post pictures. Which is lame, because i have this funny picture to post from my trip to Tianjin. But no. Apparantly Tao has done something to upset you on one of his 5 blogs and he's ruined it for the rest of us.

I can only hope whoever has offended you is punished swiftly and justly, so i can go back to posting hilarious pictures of mistranslations and street signs.

Blocking blogspot is annoying and stupid, isn't it?! I'm on your side totally!
