Just noticed this article and thought I would enquire if we have (had?!) any members in China.... I guess maybe they could be having trouble getting through, scarey thought that a government would try to turn off the net though....

This spring, many domestic newspapers also reported the deaths of two middle-school students in Chongqing who were so exhausted by a 48-hour internet marathon that they dozed off on a railway line on the way home

What a load of crap :rolleyes:

If I were a Chinese citizen, I would arrange a peaceful protest.

























No, no I wouldn't. There's nothing like having 7.62mm rounds in your chest to make you change your stance on government-ordered internet filtering.

The thing is they probably aren't even aware of it!
