the Chinese government has blocked access to Google.com, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Analytics, Google Drive, and many other Google services as the Communist Party of China holds the 18th Party Congress. Google has confirmed the block with The Next Web, and a Google spokesperson offered the following statement: “We’ve checked and there’s nothing wrong on our end.” [thenextweb.com...]

Another prime example of why NOT to use a 3rd party email source like Gmail. Wake up one morning and your government has severed access to your email, out of business.

Just try resetting a password when this happens if Gmail is your default account.

Worse yet, all your business docs stored in the Google Docs cloud are no longer available.

There's obviously only one way to properly respond to this:

This party congress only happens once every 10 years, and they're super-sensitive about any political news at this time. I doubt Google will be the only Western casualty at the great firewall during this time.

After taking so many beatings from google over the years, part of me finds this to be humorous. Maybe google should submit a reconsideration request to China!

The real Chinese Panda has spoken. Perhaps if Google stoutens up its site quality the penalty (err Algo adjustment) might be lifted. Apparently the holiday season is starting early for Google.

Good idea. Recent research has shown that the tinfoil hat in fact magnifies and focuses broadcasts, rather than blocking them as was previously believed.

So if you haven't already located Peking, oops, Beijing on the map, it's too late. For the next three weeks, it's where Baidu says it is.

But seriously...
Don't know about the rest of youse, but I've always blocked China-- including Chinacache-- wherever and whenever I meet them.

Google stock ended up $10+ per share (1.65%) today, investors aren't worried.

We’ve checked and there’s nothing wrong on our end.

I think those symbolic words hate english but this action can't make Chinese an international language

- But everyone know Internet is blank without Google today

Overall - Bad Luck for China

Just a paranoid speculation - It might be the first step before making Baidu international/multilingual search engine to take over the Internet.

Below is China CCP's response

Dear site owner of http://www.google.com

We received a request from a site owner to reconsider http://www.google.com for compliance with China Security Guidelines.
We've reviewed your site and WE STILL see Google as a threat to China domestic security.

We encourage you to make changes to comply with our security guidelines. Once you've made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration

So far you can still access other country versions of Google such as www.google.co.uk.

wtf? What in the name of tarnation is the point of THAT? Surely they don't think google.us (de facto) is the only one whose searches might reveal any undesirable information about China?

And did it never occur to the writers to find out whether google.tw, google.sg or google.com.hk is accessible?

There was a report on the radio that the govt had banned the sale of toy helicopters and had ordered taxi drivers not to let passengers open the windows in the vicinity of Tianamen square for fear that people would distribute leaflets.

That is pretty crazy.

Maybe the Chinese needs to block their people from all outside access so they will stop scraping our content. We're just about to block the entire country from our server.

In England of course we stick to the traditional lead lined bowler. Far more reliable.

Actually considering the current paranoia about terrorism I am suprised that the western powers haven't tried to shut down Street View and the satelite option in Google Maps.

It's a long shot I know, but is it in any way possible that the Powers That Be know the difference between Street View and a webcam?

I do not know about China, but in the EU they know that they both involve sending pictures over that interweb thingy and we need to stop people who are not regulated broadcasters doing this sort of thing.

Pity the UK government doesn't block them as well.
