Bitter rant...part 3? Yeah, it's still going on.

Told you that search engines other than Google were evil. Your surfing gets you jail time in China. Good thing our own government isn't spying on you in secret in America.

...Yahoo! provided Chinese authorities with personally identifying data on yet another of its customers in China. Li Zhi, a 35-year-old resident of Sichuan province, used what he believed to be an anonymous Yahoo account to express his opinions on message boards and chatrooms, and was accused of communicating online with overseas dissidents.

The data Yahoo gave authorities led to his imprisonment for eight years, -- that would be the second such case involving Yahoo in less than a year (Shi Tao, the Chinese journalist jailed for ten years with Yahoo's help).
