so.. I cannot access yahoo in China anymore.

Neither can several friends.

Did someone forget to pay the power bill, or has Yahoo become a victim (like Flikr and Typepad) of the GFW?

    Yahoo is down here in Shenzhen also. The only exception is Yahoo’s China site cn.yahoo.com. All other servers ending in yahoo.com are unavailable including Yahoo Finance. Total pain.

    Looks like Yahoo will have to have a multiple IP dynamic switching system like Google. If they can’t do it, they are toast in China.

    If this persists, it’s going to kill my business which is run out of a Yahoo Mail Business account. Let’s hope it doesn’t last…

    You mean “again”. They’ve done it before and also for reasons unknown (or plain inane).

    Down in Shanghai, but I have Yahoo small business: still no website access, i appear stuck on recieving the same email of 9:47pm Wednesday night, over and over, interestingly my mail is still going out (just not in). Curious if anybody has found a way to web email, through Japan?

    12 years ago, i’d have to use dial up to Hong kong to get my mail, if anybody in a terrible pinch, that’s should still work if somebody will loan you their dailup to get on line.

    Yahoo is Blocked in Shanghai too. Plus, the whole Flickr site, and not only the pictures as before, seems to be blocked now ( Flickr belongs to Yahoo).

    FUCK the Olimpic Games!

    China blocking VOIP technology is to protect its local telecom industry. This also infringes on people’s rights, especially non- China citizens who are in China. It’s all about money and benefit. So why not the US not allow companies such as Baidu on the US stock exchange. Or place certain limitations. However, there is one annoying thing about the Ebay company which is Paypal.com. Paypal acts very communist when it comes to running their business. They do in fact block and freeze many overseas accounts for the reason of IP addresses. Especially for users in China and Hong Kong, they will often freeze accounts. In fact, Paypal was sued and lost millions due to freezing people’s accounts in the USA in 2004. Now, because they are doing business internationally, Paypal is now abusing their rights in other countries because it is hard to sue internationally and the victims of Paypal’s account limitations will have a more difficult time suing them.

    China Block.

    While I feel your pain, I cannot say anyone has a right to free telecom.. after all, someone has to lay the cables. Do I believe that the market should be moving towards open source at cheap prices… Oh yeah, but given the fact China mobile is 100x better than AT&T in terms of service coverage and cost, I am not complaining.

    Interesting about Paypal. I once had a collegue at my first job who got blocked.. but I just figured it was because he was shady.
