A few days ago there has been posted the Danish Censorship list on Wikileaks[http://www.wikileaks.net/]. And I remembered that I once read that it was the danish police which delivered the first 1000 URLs the swiss KOBIK has banned (Heise original News[http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Schweizer-Internet-Provider-sperren-Kinderporno-Seiten--/meldung/84397]).

(The names of the mascots uncovered in detail: http://pinyin.info/news/2005/bei-bei-jing-jing-wel-wel-comes-comes-you-you/[http://pinyin.info/news/2005/bei-bei-jing-jing-wel-wel-comes-comes-you-you/])
My website isn't reachable from China at the moment with my normal DNS entry, http://apophis.ch[http://apophis.ch], the compleete DNS entry with all subdomains is blocked at the moment, but the IP is still reachable as is my backup domain entry.
