Once you decide that certain information is off-limits, you end up having to block it in every domain, and always be vigilant – just like the Chinese government. As people on Foursquare started checking into Tianâ€™anmen Square (by the way, guess what anniversary just passed with no media interest that I saw), and mentioning that on twitter, the Government noticed – Foursquare was blocked throughout the country.
Or – you could remember that this is a democracy, where political speech and ordinary citizens shouldn’t end up on a black list. Cut down on illegal stuff like child-porn and leave legal RC material alone.
