Recommended Posts

Chinese members of Neowin, please tell us if www.neowin.net is blocked over there. We came across a mirror/proxy that loads Neowin (almost) exactly the same as the live site.

Thanks for any feedback. Not posting the URL for obvious reasons.

I don't know. In any case we didn't receive a take down request.

About the Chinese mirror? Due to an article takedown request.

About knowing there are Chinese members here? One is Johnson Box, another responded to a thread on North Korea a few days ago saying where he lived in Southern China.

No, it isn't. Or at least it wasn't about a year and a half back when I spent a semester there at Xinjiang University.

Greetings from Beijing. Yes, Neowin is blocked in China. This is why I can't read your post and there's obviously no way I could possibly reply.

Don't be a dumbass ;) ofc Neowin isn't blocked if there is another mirror loading it. But I already have my answer from other posters.
