    Yay, maybe Google should do the same. They can't be making much if their advertising is censored.

    My students have never even heard of Tiananmen Square or seen the "famous" picture of the man blocking the tank. I've taught at so many schools, (and a college now) and this piece of history is just missing from the education system... Rich or poor.

    I think it's huge to let Wiki availible for the masses, but then again, if my students don't no about Tiananmen Square they certainly won't know about Wikipiedia..

    Why wife is from Beijing and didnt know anything about it either or seen the video footage of the Tank Man. I showed it all to her but she doesnt care much as even hear in the UK she is still scared of the Chinese Goverment and careful what she says and does. What she doesnt know makes her feel safer.

    But it is censored and deleted part of their history inside of China. But still the UK is no better than them with our own Masacer of inocent people in our History.

    We too kind of ignore our own bad points in History.

    I second nature. Such as who? We ignore but we dont stop others from finding them out if they wish so! We dont censor the average persons viewing rights on the web :eyebrow: that makes us a million times better than them!

    I just find it weird that a large thing like that can just be conviently ignored, I was never taught about it and was 2 at the time. I still know about it and I dont think that something like that should be censored.
