    As copypasta, China’s only official response so far as been that “China’s internet is open and the Chinese government encourages development of the internet. Chinese law proscribes any form of hacking activity.”
    Therefore it is quite free-er or freer…freer sounds weird. Ah, never mind me, both sound weird.
