Q: So, How's The New Anti-Pornography Restrictions Working For You?

Since the new anti-pornography movement has started, I can no longer access such pornographic sites as:

Theonion.com (I know why they are blocking this one!)

Stickmanbangkok.com

CBC.ca

Theoatmeal.com

and another 10 miscellaneous news and/or humor sites.

 

Add this to an already laughable restriction on Google (https, no less!) of three image searches before my personal censor wakes up and blocks that, too. I'm sorry that I have searched for such obscene terms such as "Airline meals" and "Pictures of people who love China excessively"

 

Yes, Great Powers of China, you have shown me the error of my ways by making it clear that you no longer want me to remain in your great Utopia (although, it's abundantly clear that you'd like my money to remain here). You've made it clear that an educator is not to educate using the latest technology or resources but he/she must rely on poorly translated and horribly inaccurate 1950's CCP-approved "facts".

 

Can we make a deal? I'll work for you and help you block the real threatening sites whilst you allow me to actually use the (*#^%#%*(&%^(^%(#%^(# Internet to do my job of teaching YOUR children!

 

Xie xie!

 

-P.S mike95ca and robk are CIA (Canadian Ice-skating Amateurs)  insurgents! Feel free to alleviate my personal censor from monitoring me and dedicate his comradeship's time to blocking them (p.p.s: they read 'Doonsbury' and think it's funny).

Censorship is bulk and random for most cases.

The idea is more to shoot in the air to scare people than to make surgical strikes. They temper with as many foreign services as possible so masses do not get used to them. Which is why it can differ from a month to another. It is as much political than economical actually.

On a side note, does anyone actually read previous posts before answering/commenting? Doesn't seem like it.

Sino. This has nothing to do with China, someone has signed you up for The Truman Show II

I wish they were as ineffective at blocking youtube as they are at blocking porn.

Anyway, maybe they have a different definition of 'porn', but they did no tell anyone.

 

Try the onion again. Works for me.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
