Please learn from the rest of the world - Don't block the Internet

Today they blocked Hotmail, Twitter and Flickr. As Thursday draws near (don't ask me what Thursday is - google the date) its getting worse and worse.

The current blocked sites are

1. Hotmail
2. Twitter
3. YouTube
4. Blogspot
5. WordPress
6. Flickr
7. MSN Spaces
8. Bing
9. Most of BBC
10. Most of CNN
11. A few thousand other sites

We can manage without most of the sites, but Hotmail !! Its my main e mail tool, as for many millions of Chinese.

I am a great fan of this country. There's so much here to be admired. I have only good things to say about this place. But on days like this, my affection is sorely tested.
