@ryen @RadicalEdward

Ryen pulled it off with a string of Kanji characters, and an image of the Tiananmen Square tank lineup.

literally blocked a couple of minutes later.

@thegibson @ryen

I've been eyeing the boost button on that post like a live grenade.

@RadicalEdward

@rook @ryen @RadicalEdward

On the other hand... this is not our doing.

China's authoritarians have made the decision that words and images can be too sensitive to allow.

The blame for this does not lie on us.

In the spirit of the Merry Pranksters and hacktivists that have illuminated this path before us... I have no shame about this tactic.

@thegibson
Keeping my mouth shut to not piss off China is not a skill I wish to develop.
@rook @ryen @RadicalEdward

@thegibson @ryen @RadicalEdward

Of course, yeah.

Part of me wants to leave the door open for chinese instances to join federate with the west... but I doubt that's a realistic scenario.

@thegibson @rook @ryen @RadicalEdward Yeah, fuck those hypocrites. They've got the equivalent of a weaponized zeppelin hovering over the internet and they feel absolutely no shame in attacking anyone in the world with it.

E.g.,

@thegibson @rook @ryen @RadicalEdward That github takedown was so dumb, too. It was basically a flex.

Not even the dumbest thing they've tried to do flexing.

@endomain @thegibson @rook @ryen @RadicalEdward They've stayed on top by flexing every time they find a potential threat to their power base. It's how they stay on their game.

@drwho

@thegibson @rook @ryen @RadicalEdward

True. Still, I don't like to focus on them too much. Many Chinese folks who visit rightly point out we're really not much better, and if you're not white, that's a fair read.

@RadicalEdward R¥'s first post in this thread... or the second one probably

might be funnier to get blocked over Pooh

@thegibson @ryen

@rook @RadicalEdward @ryen

The Pooh image is the far better route for this exploit.

@thegibson @rook @RadicalEdward
Just put 万岁小熊维尼 in the site’s meta tags.

It means “Long Live Winnie the Pooh.” Two banned phrases combined into one.

@nobody @skynebula @RadicalEdward @thegibson

I never noticed how much Xi Jinping looked like Pooh until I saw some footage from his trip to Japan last October.
