it would be a stupid thing to do for chinese email providers to block gmail. my money is not on that.

i put my money on this being a honest malfunction. of course, the bad PR for china is out now. half the naive readers out there will really believe this is an intentional block.

if chinese email providers really want to "break" gmail, it would be better to block gmail sporadically to create an impression that gmail is unreliable rather than an outright block which will draw criticism.


Here is a follow-up to reports of the incident
