View Full Version : When blogging seems like a big mess -

As long as we're free to just 'let it all hang out', it's a good thing.
After all, the Chinese government controls/monitors closely all bloggers, closing down those who do not follow the party line.
The Chinese government goes beyond this. For example, they blocked the posts of an Australian teacher working in China who posted his photos of atrocious conditions on the streets of the city where he taught in that country.
One photo was of people walking around a dead body on a crowded street. Another pictured a back-alley unsanitary meat market.
This blogger/teacher/photographer also posted his reports and photos on blog sites outside of China, which I followed, until there were no more. Hopefully he has made it out of China alive.

Huh? How did you get from thread responses to China monitoring bloggers-- you have confused me mightily.

Must be. If I ever decipher it, I might figure out what the joke is.

It is doubtful that the Chinese who wrote blogs that have been blocked by government monitors, consider it a joke.
