HEY FOLKS,

CORPORATIONS LIKE YAHOO NEED TO BE TAUGHT A LESSON ! JUST BECAUSE PEOPLE USE THEIR SITE , THEY HAVE NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER TO HAND OVER PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT INDIVIDUALS TO ANY GOVERNMENT - ESPECIALLY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT - THE CHINESE YOUTH CAN LEAD THE WAY BY A COMPLETE BOYCOTT OF YAHOO TILL THAT CORPORTAION BENDS DOWN AND RECOGNISES THAT DESPITE ALL THE STUPID REGULATIONS THAT AUTOCRATIC GOVERNMENTS LIKE THE CHINESE ONE MAKES - IT CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT LEAD THE GOVERNMENT TO IT'S OWN CUSTOMERS ESPECIALLY FOR SIMPLE THINGS LIKE BLOGGING AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT.

Yahoo doesn't just censor in China. They also censor in the USA. Yahoo Geocities erased my entire web site about recovery from drug and alcohol problems because somebody complained that it was "controversial".

Have a good day.

It seems the author hasn't got a clear idea about the relationship between P.R. China and Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is part of the People's Republic of China.
Stating that the physical location of the servers are in PRC is no clarification. It should be mainland China.
