Me too... Great Firewall at work :-S Feb 8, 2010

I have the same problem! I cannot access Kudoz either... nor the support center...

To the system administrators: are those parts of the site run from a different server than the rest? I have no problem accessing Forums & Blueboard so it's not the domain that the Great Firewall is picking up... the server hosting those parts of your site might be hosting something else that caused it to be banned here (whatever it might be). This reminds me of the way is blocked in China because among the hundreds of thousands of movies referenced there is one (!) to which the government objects...

Oh, and yes... I know I should send a request but I can't access the support center eithericon_biggrin.gif bit of a catch-22 hereicon_smile.gif

@globalwalking sorry for not answering in Chinese but my writing skills are 真的不好!

To reply to your query, the answer is simple : the Golden Green Dam of China.

I was told that some times ago, somebody posted some political opinion and therefore some proz services are filtered by Chinese authorities. Thus, you are not allowed to access it.

You may try late during the nightime, sometimes the filtering is less important.

Fighting against pornografy Feb 8, 2010

Official version:

In order to protect its youth from being contaminated by pornografic contents of internet sites, the Chinese goverment has been filtering out sites with such images relentlessly.

My guess:
Maybe some of the advertisements on, the woman with a bikini for example, are considered unethical in my home country.
