Earlier this week, Beijing has been ramping up its filtering of political sites in an attempt to stifle political dissent leading up to the Communist Party Congress, a meeting in which leaders are selected to serve under the president for the next five years. The most popular online video website YouTube is also blocked in China yesterday.

  1. We MUST confess that Baidu is the king of rogue search engines. As I could recall clearly what William used to wrote about Baidu's unbelievable dirty tricks on Google long ago, Baidu has been portraying itself as a big online villain who tried to curry the favor with the governmentand take any horrible actions to defame, slander Google. Now, I believe that Baidu is all what future of web and internet in China is about--the increasing chaos in cyberspace but, turns out, ironically, the some decision-makers are trying police what they think as the national threats. Baidu is always embrassing us, and it lies where our country's cyberfuture is---the world of rogues.
