Subject: Censored in China?

According to the Great Firewall of China, a testing site to see if a particular URL is being blocked in China, informs us that the gallifreyanembassy.org is blocked in China! How rude!



Now, it should be noted that podshock.net is not blocked, yet it brings you to the same exact site. So I can only assume that perhaps it is the word "embassy" in the URL that is causing our main URL address to be blocked. Even though the word is used on the site and both URLs will bring you to the same site... perhaps they are censoring all URLs with "embassy" in it. I haven't tested that theory out yet though.



Outpost Gallifrey is not blocked.



There is a disclaimer on the testing site that states some sites resulting as a blocked site could in fact just be not accessible in China for technical reasons, and not necessarily censored.



Cheers,

Louis

OK... I just tried it again, and this time it is saying it is available... So I am not sure how reliable this testing site really is at this point. It could be a big sham as well.

So I suppose ignore my previous message. We may not be blocked after all.

Cheers,

Louis,

The only thing that matters is, "Are we Big in Japan?"
