    Re: Survey - "Blogs"

    Redy's problem (Hello Rose!) might be the fact that the Chinese government, controling their Internet, blocks many, many web sites that might contain political or other undesireable content... I assume most blog sites would make the Chinese government very nervous, hence the redirecting...

    Re: Survey - "Blogs"

    I apologize for having the wrong information, and I thank you for giving me better information.

    Since my government does not block internet sites from its citizens, neither the the pretentious ones nor the unpretentious ones, I am not very educated about which web sites the Chinese government says are illegal today.

    I apologize for implying that all blogs are blocked; I should have said that, as of now, the Chinese government allows its citizens to read some blogs.

    Thank you again,
    Robert

    not at all ! and i will give you more information about the blocked blog or websites by our government .

    for instance , you know Taiwan has been to one part of China since many centurys . and in the end of the world war 2 , many rebel army move to Taiwan for evading .and our goverment do not kill them because both of are chinese . But nowadays ,the goverment of Taiwan donot accept that Taiwan is one part of china this factor. In contrast , they wanna be independent .Are you kidding ? All of us know that Taiwan will be back to China - his mother land, as Hongkong and Macao . But there are some militants always lead their
    standing alone way, like LiDengHui ( the former admin of Taiwan) ,but there is no way or no place for them to explain their mind in the real world and the political stage .So .the internet seems to be useful .

    militants focust on the blog or other frequent renewing web form to publicize the "justice idea" but only for them . so our government must keep eyes on this illegal blog or web ,and blocked them immediately !

    so , have you get what illegal mean from our government?

    add my msn .if you want to know more about china !
