Categories: East Asia, China, Digital Activism, Freedom of Speech, Technology

With screenshots and a statement from Microsoft [1], the Asiapundit blogger counters the assumption [2] of some that the MSN Spaces blog [3] of illegally-detained Beijing or Bust [4] blogger Wu Hao [5]‘s sister Nina has been blocked:

“There was an outage of the service for those who were using China Telecom's ISP service – but there was no outage for users of CMC and other ISPs. Further, the problem with China Telecom has now been resolved. The above screen shot was taken minutes ago in Shanghai without a proxy.”

“Hao Wu is still imprisoned without charge ,” he continues. “Tomorrow, he will have been detained for a full two months.”
