It’s well known that censorship in China stifles many forms of electronic communication and media, such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Gmail. Now, the New York Times reports that regulations have become even stiffer, ever since the government caught whiffs of plans to organize China-based protests after uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. Several virtual-private-network services have been disrupted, and many users of Gmail, Google’s email service which is located in Hong Kong, have been unable to access their accounts for the last several weeks. (According to New York Times) Even cell phone calls are being monitored, according to a caller in Beijing who had quoted Shakespeare’s “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” to his girlfriend and was abruptly disconnected.

And thanks Fons Tuinstra for his post “The false NYT China censorship story”.
