Excerpts of translations:
User Mechanic: Google's CEO and board members are too naive, too arrogant, they want to challenge a nation's culture and regulations alone as a company, and this will of course fail. Their judgments are mistakes, and we can only say that they are too stupid. (from usa)

User JamesS: [....] The final losers will be Google, because of China's cyberspace is the world's largest. (from canada)

User beeing: Google is pretending to be a defender of justice, Google will regret their own arrogance, stupidity and greed. (from uk)

User Barskaun: Good job Chinese people , they really love their country. The Internet needs barriers. (from russia)

User James: Under the pretense of morality, Google's real purpose is obvious, that is to use the Internet to subvert and control China. I believe that there is no reason that the Chinese people give information control to Google. Information control is more powerful than bullets. (from australia)

User Billy: Google's poor performance in the Chinese market, is entirely because of its poor management. But they do not realize this, and blame the Chinese government instead. (from france)

The China Digital Times has a story titled "The Ministry of Truth Limits Reporting on Google in China 03/23/10 (Updated)". It reports on a large list of restrictions regarding reporting on Google and their recent actions. They deal with reporting in news outlets, blogs, forums and interactive media. This is also being covered by The Washington Post and cnet.

Here is a sample of CDT's translations. See the referenced stories for a much larger list.

"Do not produce relevant topic pages; do not set discussion sessions; do not conduct related investigative reporting;"

"Online programs with experts and scholars on this matter must apply for permission ahead of time. This type of self-initiated program production is strictly forbidden."

"Carefully manage the commentary posts under news items."

"All websites please clean up text, images and sound and videos which attack the Party, State, government agencies, Internet policies with the excuse of this event."

"All websites please clean up text, images and sound and videos which support Google, dedicate flowers to Google, ask Google to stay, cheer for Google and others have a different tune from government policy"
