I have received some anecdotal evidence that wordpress blogs such as this one have recently been blocked again by the “great firewall of China“.   I was wondering if the readers here could confirm or disconfirm this, and also if they knew of some effective ways to circumvent this firewall, as I have been getting a number of requests on how to do so.

[Of course, by definition, if a reader is directly affected by this blockage, then they would not be able to comment here or to read about any workarounds; but perhaps they would be able to confirm the situation indirectly, and I could still pass on any relevant tips obtained here by other channels.]

[Update, June 3: A partial list of blocked sites can be found here, and a firewall tester can be found here.]
