Last Tuesday I was inconvenienced by the fact that YouTube.com was blocked in China.
The reason for the blockage was due to some controversial video posted, and since the YouTube servers aren't in China, they blocked it.
I guess Google and China worked out whatever issues were at play because Friday, it was reopened, so no big deal, a temporary outage.
Unfortunately, today, for the second time in as many weeks, youtube.com has been once again blocked in China.
This is getting rather annoying.
