But who knows how Apply Daily, Hong Kong's mass circulation Chinese-language newspaper, will headline it? Should know soon enough. Mister B has it on good authority -- an email from an impeccable source -- that Hong Kong's Apple Daily will run a story about The NTSCMP Affair on Friday, 22 September 2006.
Well, Apply Daily says it will. Time will tell.
The NTSCMP Affair: the inability of Hong Kong's PCCW ISP Netvigator and HGC Broadband customers to access the satirical, English-language website Not the South China Morning Post: ntscmp.com
Mister B confesses he is not a regular online reader of NTSCMP. But if, and it is if, if two of Hong Kong's largest ISPs are blocking a website such a blockage sets a dangerous precedent. And if that is the case, it is the thin edge of the wedge. After this one, who's next?
And me I thought GFW only applied on the other side of the border: Great Firewall of China
Oh, regarding the words in the photo accompanying the previous post, they are:
"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."Thank you.
