Really, that's basically all. They've (China) perfected their blocking technology to the point where they can detect any search query, not just in google and yahoo, and they can block parts of sites. They block any and all web proxies the instant they go online, and the only way to completely get around the blocks is to encrypt all your traffic in HTML. I need to either a) learn to proxy outside of the country without the help of applications or b) get some impenetrable software. No BBC news. No blogspot. No google cache. Timeout errors way more often than should happen. Government spies monitoring my net traffic 'cause they know I'm a foreigner and shutting it down if I type the wrong thing into google. I only want to surf in peace.
