Maybe Bill Gates should spend less time swanning about with Bozo

And more watching the store - Microsoft takes down Chinese blogger:
Microsoft’s MSN Spaces continues to censor its Chinese language blogs, and has become more aggressive and thorough at censorship since I first checked out MSN’s censorship system last summer. On New Years Eve, MSN Spaces took down the popular blog written by Zhao Jing, aka Michael Anti. Now all you get when you attempt to visit his blog at: http://spaces.msn.com/members/mranti/ is the error message pictured above. (You can see the Google cache of his blog up until Dec.22nd here.)

Note, his blog was TAKEN DOWN by MSN people. Not blocked by the Chinese government.
More by following the link including all the MSN technology for blocking content upsetting to the Chinese Communists and the slavish pandering by the domestic Chinese blogging service, Bokee:
Furthermore, we need to reflect: of all the BSP's that Anti has used, how come only MSN was not shut down? Here, we must admire the cunning public relations methods of MSN. We must also think that the Internet supervision departments are negligent about monitoring and controlling blogs, and that they have been lax with respect to MSN. Our bottom line are being backed up step by step, and our market is being eroded step by step.

We issue the call: Rise up, and oppose the Microsoft monopoly of 2.0.
Sounds like the pondscum at Bokee are following the Chicom leadership so closely that their ear drums are in danger when the big guys break wind.
