I think thats very unlikely cos he was discussing very actively before he left, I think he prolly got busy with life (wife? ) or he went back home to China and doesn't have internet access anymore

If he was to go back to China. he sure does have internet Access. On his signature, he provides a link which he usually post pics on a weekly basis. But I doubt he will be able to have access to this site over there because of the Government Firewall.

There was a change in the plan on my trip to Asia. Originally I supposed to go to Dalian but unfortunetly there have been a schedule change in flight plans to India which made my stay in China shorter than usual.


But while in China, I'll see about their Government Firewall to discover whether this site is blocked or not.

So it comes to this, I will be visiting Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, and Bangalore.



FYI: During my short time in Shanghai about 3 years ago, I was able to access www.cnn.com , www.bbc.com , and mostly official western news sources. I was able to gain access to German sites...not a problem. But I tried out several extremists factions Websites and turns out many of them were blocked.

Yes there is a government controlled Firewall but not to an extent in which most people say. All I can say is this, the Chinese Government Censorship Firewall acts a lot like a Forum Moderator. Surprisingly, they are beginning to tolerate critisms and opinions, but certainly not inflammatory messages or anything like it. So which means that www.military-quotes.com/forum/ probably won't be blocked in China.

I don't think it's blocked in China, since I several of our members have Chinese IPs..
