Running Dog is a website containing thoughtful, cynical essays and reportage about China, and journalism in China.

It has been blocked by the Nanny, aka Great Firewall or GFW, for the last year. Today, it's accessible again in China. What did Running Dog do to the Nanny to make her change her mind?

Comments on Nanny forgives Running Dog

Running Dog has actually been unblocked in China for several months now.

Though I too have no idea what has changed. Who, after all, can fathom the thought processes of China's net censors, who block BBC News but not BBC Radio, and Blogspot but not Typepad? Not I.

Ah, they unblocked it on condition that I wouldn't write anything ever again. It was the puns they objected to, apparently.
