Along with FaceBook, YouTube, Blogspot and others, WordPress has been blocked for users in China.
Tonight, I found a proxy that got me here. So far I stayed out of the game of catch between the internet users and the Chinese internet censors by dropping off the FaceBook world; I couldn’t be bothered to find the latest proxy, the one that the authorities didn’t know about yet.
I’m too much into this blogging thing to do the same this time. I’ll do my best to find the proxy, keep up with it and then move on when necessary.
There will probably be more days between activity on the site than usual, either until I travel or things lighten up. These kinds of blocks can last a few days if there are temporary tensions somewhere in the country, or years as with FaceBook and the rest.
Here’s to freedom of expression regardless of government controlled censorship; and here’s to the hope that there will be real moves towards that freedom. And we’ll have access in a few day again;)
