    Sad. I wonder how many VPN servers they block.

    It's not really clear if they even block VPN servers. It's worded as if those specific domains have been blocked at the DNS level.

    I.e. move your DNS and they will probably work again.

    Regardless, if they are violating the law then it probably wont last long.

    Hmmm. I often don't use hostnames in my OpenVPN configs. Because I don't have DNS when the VPN isn't connected.
