Could be because there's now a Chinese version and the gov't can't control it like they can control Xiaonei.com

I'm sure there are some ways to work around it; look up techniques for using IRC on college campuses and they may work.

Things in China are really strange, everyday a new website or project borns, and the old ones dissappear, I admire the enormous daily technological changes, really strange... aren`t they?
