    Yes I wonder when that will happen. Once China shows it can censor and control the internet, I wonder how many countrys will want to learn from it and use it to censor their own country for example porn and gambaling sites etc. Its a power the USA will want to have, I bet.

    Anyhow it is a bit of a bugger when I was staying with family in Beijing this year and I tried to use my fav search engine Google.co.uk. It was blocked suprise suprise and had to use google.com.cn instead which doesnt bring the results i was after. I gave up and waited until I got back to the UK to use the Net.

    It's a know fact (having seen them myself) that all major UK ISPs have to have "black boxes" installed on their main fibre connections (inbound+outbound). There is no choice in the matter!

    Who knows what they restrict/filter out :worried:
