It doesn’t just end there. Yahoo is also inaccessible now it seems, although both Yahoo.com.cn and Yahoo.cn are still working as usual. Has it been GFW-ed? Is the inaccessibility of the two websites related?
We’d like to keep close tabs on this, so wherever you are in China, please let us know how the the two websites load up in your region. In the meanwhile, there is no picture in this post to mourn the (temporary?) loss of Flickr. Who knows, posts may start to look like this very often in the future. In the meanwhile, feel free to stick a pin into this voodoo doll!
UPDATE: Upcoming.org, now part of the Yahoo family, is also apparently blocked. del.icio.us appears safe … for now.
UPDATE 2: There is a related discussion on ShanghaiExpat.
UPDATE 3: Flickr is working again, and so is Yahoo! Unfortunately, Wikipedia has gone down again, so our joy was shortlived. NO wait, it is back up again! Really, what’s up, Net Nanny? Having a bad hair day? We’re not expecting any official explanation for the
Having Flickr problems?
