I meant to say "shouldn't he want more people to look him up" it shows he has more support.

I know the election itself is just a sham with no opposition.

<quoted text>How many times do I need to debunk this bullshit! Just for the experiment I even tried "Zoo XXX' and got forth thousand something sites! Just ask yourself where "Google" got its' seed money from. Not there is an eyeopener about freedom!! Except for FLG and some (but not all) "Free Tibet" sites I can get 99% of what I search for. The crap about the blocked internet is only ever told to us by people OUTSIDE China. Where again, aren't all the China experts all outside China?
Free southern Tibet!!
Just being "Devil's Advocate" here. How much are they paying you to say this, or are you thoroughly brainwashed? Or what are you being threatened with if you don't?

It is probably not illegal to 'access' a blocked site it is only that they contain material that are considered subversive or harmful to minors.

I wonder if the Chinese government is actually able to find successful, educated foreigners to write crap, instead of old senile Aussies who make tons of spelling and grammar mistakes. If their spelling and grammar are so terrible, their concept of ideas must be skewed as well. Only failures at home would leave 1st world countries to go live in such a crappy place.

The other day a list of words was published that will get you added to a watch list in the USA if you use them on the internet. Based on some of the words used I can imagine that everybody in the USA must be under surveillance.
