One note for this forum. At my Chinese factory, I am unable to get to Core77 as it is blocked by the government for having a forum. I am unsure how wide spread this is in China but it would have an effect on the number of comments we would receive from China.
Can anyone in mainland China comment on this?
I wonder if they could access RSS feeds of the blogs…
Did you use
Nope, i just typed in
Interesting, no reason why. But Timf you still can get on?
I live in Hong Kong, and have no problem here. Only when I am in mainland China, have I had the problem.
Sorry, I should have made that clear earlier.
it’s not because it has a forum. core was blocked in iran too so i went to the filtering center and they told me it was because the word
core is read like hardcore by software. the person in charge called the supervisor for filtering and he created input instructions on filter software to allow only core77. then it worked.
Here they block the search word “mp3”. I think in this case I’d prefer communism.
looking at this thread from Beijing. Try core77.discourse.group
Not blocked in Mainland. I am posting from Fuzhou, China
not blocked too,I am in wuhu Anhui,as a student in college
I am back at my China factory today. www.core77,com did not work but core77.discourse.group did
Thanks for the suggestion.
Also glad to see others can get on.
that’s false alarm! China is a open country, now!

BEIJING - When access to Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, was disrupted across China last October, a lanky chemical engineer named Shi Zhao called his Internet service provider to complain. A technician confirmed what Shi already suspected: Someone in the government had ordered the site blocked again.
Who and why were mysteries, Shi recalled, but the technician promised to pass his complaint on to higher authorities if he put it in writing.
“Wikipedia isn’t a Web site for spreading reactionary speech or a pure political commentary site,” Shi, 33, wrote a few days later. Yes, it contained entries on sensitive subjects such as Taiwan and the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, but users made sure its articles were objective, he said, and blocking it would only make it harder for people in China to delete “harmful” content…

China in mainland can enter this web too.
