Is it just me who thinks this is getting rather ridiculous? And why is China doing this? I might have missed something, English is not my first language so not all of those fancy words was understandable.

The Chinese love their censorship don't they.

I think it's a combination of the GAPP being run by a bunch of old codgers and China's long established xenophobia. Basically, the GAPP wants to keep things as they have been and doesn't want to wake up and find a flaming bag of capitalism on its doorstep.

You'd think that people would accept the fact that physical boundaries are no longer as important as they once were and would stop trying to keep foreigners out as much as China does. People may not exactly welcome you to Japan with open arms, but at least you can work out of there relatively easily.

Its only a small part this, a large part of their xenophobia. They basically want to keep their games in, and make every effort to crash the foreign online games coming in. I'd even go so far as to say they want WoW out so they can maintain the top selling game in their country.

Rofl, China really is becoming more and more like America every day. Soon, they too will know the pleasure of not being able to change anything in relation to politics or governance due to bureaucracy's stranglehold on their metaphorical nuts.

So since we seem to have dug up and are now beating the same dead horse we were beating this summer I would like to re-admit to the table of conversation a little something I whipped up at the request of someone in our community during the original assault this summer.

Ladies and gentlemen, members of the senate, I present to you the gaming community's stance when it comes to China's continued attack on WoW.
