    "In the past year, Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo have been in competition to attract China's 95 million Internet users. They have been pressured to comply with local laws that restrict news and discussion. Google has agreed with authorities to censor its Chinese search engine, for example, as has Yahoo. Microsoft launched a Chinese blog service that forbits users from using certain words."

    It concerns me, but it doesn't surprise me.

    It's the lure of $ that MAKES them do it. And/Or the fact they want as much as a presence everywhere as possible, no matter what the "Cost" and in this case not it's not just $, but bowing down to censorship !

    Shame on them.
