OMBW Blocked in China!

censored in china

Well, it finally happened: My site is blocked in China.

I am guessing it was the Tibet piece the banned blogs post and the last one below….I should have stuck to funny stories about coffee coke

It reminds me of the “Aw *hit” certificates we used to hand out in the military . It read something like: “1,000 Atta Boys are negated by one Aw *hit”…

Aw *hit!

    It may be a problem with your provider. Your site comes through loud and clear for me in Guangzhou. :)


  2. daveon Mar 12th 2007 at 12:59 pm says the website is available as well.

    Although the censorship is working even in the North your OMBW site is not yet blocked here home in Sweden… //Dag :-)

    Thanks Dag…THAT would scare me…


    I checked in with thegreatfirewall and got a blocked URL message and several people from other provinces have written to tell me that they cannot access my site…


    I am not un Guangzhou right now, but wil lbe anxious to see if I can update from GZ….

    Thanks for checking!

    Careful what you say… 哥哥 Mao is watching. But somehow I can still get to your blog. That’s all that really matters.

    Thanks Matthew…Just added you to the blogroll BTW…

    Gwah! says my site is blocked. Is that true?

    You are making it to California. I don’t think it was your piece on Tibet or the other pieces you listed. I think that when they pulled the plug on the 1.8 million blogs your blog was “the near them” and suffered collateral damage – hang in there.

    Thanks! It looks like they restored me…And I did not even have to go to Cyber re-education camp!

    If I get blocked in Sweden or California I am moving to the Gobi….

    Any more updates on the status of accessibility of your blog from various regions of China? Are you still unable to access it directly via your current ISP, or are you back in GZ now? It’s working fine for me here in Beijing.
