Net Nanny Follies

Party Congress ends, Blogspot blocked again

Popular Google-owned blog host Blogspot was suddenly accessible in China on October 15 or 16 this year, after a period of being blocked. The 17th Party Congress started on October 15.

The 17th Party Congress ended yesterday. Today, Blogspot is once again not accessible in China.

Has someone at China's Net Nanny headquarters figured out that a lot of foreign journalists like to blog and get annoyed when they visit China and cannot access Blogspot? And that therefore things would be most harmonious if Blogspot worked when there are big events in China that attract the international media?

• See this summary for details of the on-again off-again blocking of Blogspot over the last few years.
