Yes blogspot.com is dead, blocked, again, in China.
Many of my friends in China told me that they have been not able to access blogspot.com from 20 Mar afternoon. Users of all most all ISPs, China Telecom, China Netcom, China Tietong, CERNET, are all experiencing difficulty accessing blogspot.
Looks like a nation-wide block.
Trace route timed out from certain core router of China Telecom.
I don’t think it’s permanent block as this is not first time that Google services are blocked in China. Even google.com are blocked every now and then.
It must be a tough time for those in China who’re using Google blogger. But seems like people are used to it now…
Hey, PR (not PageRank) guys in Google, it’s your showtime !
