FeedBurner Is Completely Blocked In China

At the end of August, when FeedBurner is blocked by China Telecom (most in south China), some of the China Netcom (most in north China) users may glad they still be able to visit feedburner. Today, FeedBurner is blocked by China Netcom too, so the China Netcom users must say goodbye to the FeedBurner.

So far, all Chinese users were unable to visit FeedBurner now.

This time is different from last year, in August 1,2006, FeedBurner is also blocked temporarily, one day later it’s came back. But this time, FeedBurner is blocked lot's of days, and it's still out there, which reminds us that this blockade may be permanent in the nature.

Even so, the Chinese users can still use Google Reader to visit FeedBurner, but if Google Reader becomes the next one, what should Chinese users do?

    William, I DO think your English blog is increasingly letting me down. A little writing tip: Spend some time to finish a piece, and polish it, and make it well-written, in stead of dishing out a rush, thoughtless piece filled with rants, outcries, fatal grammatical wounds which could spoil your blog. If you are more focused on your Chinese blog, and don't have enough time to take care of this blog, just pull a plug on it.

  6. Good for you for writing about this. The world knows of the censorship in China. Please know that we hope for freedom of speech in China, among other things.

    What the Chinese government fails to understand is that they cannot stop you from thinking or believing anything.

  7. "FROM THE WEST", YOU ARE WRONG! AT LEST FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, IF YOU ARE REALLY SENSILBE CHINESE, YOU WOULD AGREE WITH THIS! REASON IS SIMPLE: ON ONE COULD BLOCK OTHER FREE THINKING AND ALSO ACTUALLY COULD NOT REALLY BLOCK THE INFORMATION. NEVETHELESS, DOES IT MEAN THAT THE CHINESE MEDIA AND CHINESE THINKING SHOULD FOLLOW WESTERN TUNE? NO. SO, WE JUST SUPERFICIAL STOP SPREADING OF THOSE INFORMATION INCITING HARED AND INDIGNITY. PEOPLESTILL LEARN AND THEY WOULD KNOW THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD LIKE TO MAINTIAN MORE CALM THE INDIFERENCE TO THOSE BARKING!
