    Re: China hammers dissent despite looming UN review

    I live in Nanjing, China (though I'm currently in SE Asia) where I study full time. I have no problem accessing DP, ever.

    Most people don't understand the Chinese firewall because they have been fed a lot of propaganda in foreign countries. The purpose of internet monitoring in China is to monitor the CHINESE. They could give a toss what the foreigners do. They don't even check foreigners' bags at the airport. You can download porn, movies, rip mp3s, even post to a politics site in English that bashes the Chinese government. They do not care. Given the amount of anti-PRC rhetoric spewed on here by the die hards, this site would be censored immediately if the Chinese government even gave a damn. They don't.

    The reason why barely any Chinese people post here is because it is an English site and the level of English used here is very advanced. People in China can also access the New York Times and a lot of Western papers via the net, but do you think most do? No. They're in English.

    The Chinese gov. monitors things that are a threat... and DP is not.

    I can't think of even one who regularly posts from mainland China.

    Very strange for such an "open country" with a billion people.
    Hmmm, Orius?

    You're just brainwashed by Chinese propaganda or under duress.
