Ciro Santilli 六四事件 法轮功

Homepage. Necromancer top 20 in 2015-04.

六四事件 法轮功 are two taboo keywords for the Chinese Dictatorship. They mean:

My goal is to make the Chinese firewall block Stack Overflow pages where I have posted, in order to make Chinese programmers either:

  • mad and demand direct elections, freedom of speech, judicial transparency and human rights
  • less efficient and work less well for the Dictatorship

I am against violence.

Why I'm doing this: in March 2015, my girlfriend's mother was kept 15 days in prison without trial or accusation: https://twitter.com/cirosantilli/status/579270450984984576

If you have comments, positive or negative, ping me on Twitter or https://github.com/cirosantilli/chat/issues/new

I'm am sorry if this affects you negatively personally. I love China and its people. But I believe that it is the best in the long run. Your government exploits and lies to you way more than democracies do.

A funny effect of this is that if people @ mention you, then they also end up saying the taboo words.

If you know words that are even more likely to get blocked, please let me know. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_blacklisted_keywords_in_China contains a nice list. My personal favorites (some are just funny and silly): 共匪, 共惨党, 红色恐怖, 达赖

I am also gathering interesting information at: https://github.com/cirosantilli/china-dictatorship

Falun Gong controversy I have received a few messages of people who are for democracy but against Falun Gong. If you can convince me that it's bad enough to be banned, I will remove it. That can be argued.
