From the Herald Tribune:

In early June, Chinese trying to create blogs on a Microsoft-hosted service using words like "democracy," "freedom" or "human rights" in the title received this message: "The title must not contain prohibited language, such as profanity. Please type a different title."
  
More insidious than the open restriction on the blogging site is the invisible but fine mesh of censorship that China has installed – with assistance from leading Western firms.
