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!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
