After Google Reader was unreliable again today I thought I’d give Google’s PRC status report a quick look. What a sad picture indeed. Only Gmail remains freely accessible. This blocking seems to have gone beyond the joke what on earth can they be that afraid of?

Maybe China is getting kickbacks from all these VPN companies which are now doing roaring trade thanks to this unprecedented level of blocking.
