Nanny follies

The Great Celestial Nanny is behaving oddly again: roboblog Living in China is blocked, while blogs on are suddenly available.

If you live in China, take the Nanny-free chance to check out some Iraqi blogs, most of which seem to be on Blogspot. They range from the strongly anti-American such as Baghdad Burning to the enthusiastlically pro-Bush such as Iraq the Model. Links to many Iraqi blogs can be found here, at Iraqi Bloggers Roundup.

UPDATE: The fuckers! Blogspot is blocked again. Go to old Faithful if you want to see blocked sites.

The fuckers!
