Goodbye, Wikipedia.jaylee.cn!

You may feel sorry that the whole wikipedia mirror is gone, as the guy who did the same with my blog was also circumventing Chinese content restrictions, as earlier said that citizens of China are not allowed to read Wikipedia. His web site was shut down by his ISP due to supposed threats from government. This is English translation of farewell message.

    thanks coturnix and cybercotle. People do not know that paralel consultations with legals on iCommons I had to do direct and concrete actions: sent several emails to Google, Google AD Senses services and support, host DH that was mirrored site placed, WordPress support and many administrative forms I had to fill and submit.

    I’m glad it worked out well for you. I still wonder if they had tacit permission from WordPress or Wikipedia, but I guess we’ll never know.
