Want to see if your friends in China can read your blog. Well, the Great Firewall of China website will test the URL and see if it gets past the Great Firewall of China.

They must have a block on Blogger, because neither my website about human rights in Zimbabwe nor my joke/recipe blog could get past the blockage.  I can understand China might not like some of my posts about China supporting Mugabe, but why they want to block recipes for Pansit and corny jokes I’ll never know.

They are also blocking my Xanga blog, which is purely medical essays.

However, I checked ABS CBN, a major network here in the Philippines, and their website went through.

Guess they don’t think Philippine news sites are subversive…
