Microsoft Censors Blog Tool to Appease China’s Censors

Redcardlibrarian writes “”The world’s largest software company, Microsoft, is not allowing the Chinese version of its new Web portal to use words deemed politically sensitive by China’s Communist Party. The media freedom organization Reporters Without Borders has condemned Microsoft for bowing to Beijing’s censors.

Microsoft’s new Web portal, MSN Spaces, is supposed to give people an online outlet for expressing themselves. But the Chinese version blocks words and subjects that Beijing considers subversive.”
