Yup it would seem so, but what is life without a little source and space junkies

I guess the Chinese do a better job on censorship than Arabs. We still can see a lot of material mocking Arab leaders.

Well China is their country and not mine. But they censor things that would be seen in a first world country as normal expression and freedom of thought. They should understand that this type of censorship will lead to mistrust.

If they truly want reform and opening, then they should look at the censorship issues and accept the rest of the worlds point of view.

You're right. Maybe it'll take some time.

Here some site are blocked, usually porn, explosive-making, hate-promoting and the likes. The UAE has no real political issues to worry about. The blocked page would displaya message saying: "We apologize the site you are attempting to visit has been blocked due to its content being inconsistent with the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates. If you think this site should not be blocked, please visit the Feedback Form available on our website."

At least they give you a chance to respond, not so here. You cannot see it and that is it.
