I don't think that the so-called Green Dam-Youth Escort software was created to protect the young Chinese, if we consider the foreign industry officials' opinion than personal information could arrive anytime in the hand of central security structures. I wonder if a regcure program won't be able to remove the tracks of this app, which seems a very bad idea, because this isn't the first time when it happens.

I heard that this program was super easy to circumvent. From what I heard, all you have to do is reinstall an operating system that doesn't have the program. And just how the hell do they intend to supervise this? How will they check all computers in china?

Didn't China pretty much do the same thing during the Olympics, their leaders have a serious fear of losing control of their better than the average citizen's lifestyle and nothing is blocked on the leaders PCs, why would it be?

Lets hope all computers being imported from China don't have this.  This is just wrong.  Any manufacturer that supports this is supporting communism.

What the hell happened to this thing called "freedom."  The world leaders believe that they should block every little thing.  What kind of life are we leaving for the next generations to come?

How long until Germany institutes the same thing so they can block violent web games that might otherwise incite unholy violence unknown since the time of Otto the Great? 

Why won't anyone think of the children??
