Wall Of Speech is banned in China

It's not as if the Wall Of Speech is the hub of anti-Chinese propaganda in the West, but for some strange reason (unknown to me) WoS has effectively been banned in China. No one in China can visit or view this site.

To find out if your own site is available to be viewed in China simply take this test that I discovered over at the heavyweight Conservative blogger Elle Seymour .

If anyone has any ideas as to why WoS in banned in China, I would surely like to hear it.

I am banned for the very good reason that I have made some very critical posts about China's activities in Southern Africa

Why? Most probably because of the fact that WOS promotes freedom of speech...This is something not very much appreciated by Chinese government just as human rights...

Oh, I have just found out that my site hasn't been banned. I guess I'm not regarded as a "threat" to Chinese government and their ways of thinking. But, hey! I'm a fierce defender of human rights and freedom of speech!

Welcome back Courtney! Probably the word "freedom" and "Speech" are not well seen in China...

Ellee,

"I don't think I'm that heavyweight, it sounds intimidating."

Well... in regards to your blogging, I'm afraid you are up there in the higher echelons of the blogging hierarchy. Technorati profiles never lie, and according to your technorati profile, you are up there with some of the best of them.

So, there's no need to feel intimidated, on the contrary, in this age of the information society, your words appear to go a long way - except in China of course.
