A New Round of GFW Blockings

January 8, 2010

Another one bites the dust

IMBD, the movie review website, has been declared another victim of China’s Great Firewall.  IMDb, an obvious hotbed of anti-Chinese government forces, could not be accessed in China from January 6th.

One of China’s leading social networking sites with over 100 million users, 51.com, was also inaccessible from within mainland China yesterday due to ‘undisclosed reasons’.

Other websites blocked include IT168.com, an internet and technology portal with 10 million registered users, and BlogBus.com, a blogging site with five million users.  The sites were blocked following accusations the sites were hosting sites containing ‘harmful information’.
