It is June 24, 2009 today.
When I waked up I saw some members were complaining that they could not access Google.com because China banned Google.com again. This is not the 1st time.
A member posted the following DSN information about Google.com when I tested:

Fortunately Chinese people are still able to visit Google.cn.
I think the reason why China banned Google.com but no Google.cn is about that Google.com can not filter adult content which is not allowed by China government .
