China blog block

Asiapundit is reporting that Typepad blogs are blocked again in China. Gordon is reporting that this site is blocked in Chengdu, but Chris says it is viewable in Shanghai and others report it viewable in Beijing, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. These sites are doing an audit of where they are blocked, but it appears Typepad is blocked nationally. Please let me know if this site or other sites are blocked or viewable in China.

And remember, proxy servers are your friends.

Visible in Beijing, as is the main Typepad.com site.

Thanks for letting me know. It appears my site is OK...but typepad is another matter.

I've done a short roundup at AP, your site is still fine in Shanghai, though imagethief is noting that it has been blocked elsewhere (and that Horse's Mouth is also being blocked) and ESWN is being filtered more rigorously (though that uses Chinese characters and would be more likely to be filtered) Ironically, the filtered post was an argument "for" censorship.
