Yeah I was wondering about that, since china seems to be censoring a lot of sites. Will UG's members from china be leaving us anytime soon? And of course, what are the opinions about these things.
Do you think it's right for a government to help mold it's people by cencoring things they do not approve of, or is it just keeping information from your people?

Personally I don't think it's a good thing, but I'm curious as to what UG has to say about it.

EDIT: I feel the need to add more information, because even though I do not agree with what is happening there there's more than just bad things to keeping information from people. In a way this can be compared to keeping your children from watching the news when there's war.
It isn't strange that a government would want it's people to be kept from 'staining' their minds with information that they think would be bad for it's people and thus eventually it's country.

The second letter of the alphabet surrounded by horizontal slashes is doing a massive raid on Chineese forums due to these shenanigans.

We, the US, are going to get bombed in retaliation. I know it =(

China isn't a democracy. If you want to live in a democracy move to Iran.

And this is China censoring

And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

It sucks, and with China's massive army and no possibility for foreign intervention, the people this is supposed to protect won't be able to do anything.

In asian porno's the sex is always censored, so it's a loss for us, too.

But everybody should be able to see whatever they want.

But China doesn't have it bad, look at North Korea, they can't view anything from the outside world.
