Google.cn restricted?

OK, I looked for this in the forums and on the site and maybe I am missing it or it only happens here... but trying Google.cn reroutes me to Google.com. Any other domain works. Am I missing something or is Google now blocking us from seeing what it shows (or doesn't show) the Chinese populace?

Google.cn, .ie, .ca etc. will all redirect to your local site unless you add /webph....something

I didn't add anything, and Google.cn works fine for me.

When I go to Google.cn:
   *Firefox goes to Google.cn
   *Internet Explorer goes to Google.com

KP, this happens to me ever since I first tried Google.cn. What you can do to prevent the auto-redirect is to set your preferred browser language to Chinese. In Firefox, that's tools -> options -> advanced -> choose -> (add Chinese). You may also try this URL: http://www.google.cn/webhp?hl=zh-CN

Safari can’t open the page “ http://www.google.cn/ ” because it can’t find the server “www.google.cn”.

Something's up.
