The article linked below is great news if it is accurate...which I sincerely hope it is.

government-slips-china-internet-censors-new-technology

Since as a libertarian I beluieve that censorship is one of the most obscene words in the English language, i'm automatically predisposed to cheer about this.

It's also good to see us able to crack a Chinese attempt at net censoship.

RK-
If this is true---and i have no reason to doubt it is not---publicizing it will do nothing but inspire the whipmasters over the ChiComs internet software wonks to come up with a way to plug the gap...and fast!  "Ze vippink vill continue until morale improofs!"

Why can't people keep their mouths shut about a Good Thing?

It gets publicised because you can't stop The Signal anymore. Data will always leak out and the other side will adjust to take that into account and our side will adjust to overcome that. This kind of effort has been going on for years. Individual hackers and their crews have been attacking China's screen constantly for years. What makes this different is that the US government has a lot more firepower to throw at it.
He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31
