China: MSN censors another blog

In a comment on sister of illegally-detained Beijing or Bust blogger Wu Hao's blog, formerly frequent poster Nancy Yingwang laments the shutdown today of her MSN Spaces blog:

“My blog has broken down and I feel sick. I can't find a way out. If freedom needs so long a time before just a little can be got, what are those being held captive to do in the meantime? This is just a flash in this country's history, but it's a small part of their lives, maybe even a large part. A person's life could never be so lowly. With life in this kind of society, one must degenerate into an animal before even a facade of ‘freedom’ can be attained. But if we're talking about humans, how is one supposed to live?” [zh]
