Yeah, chosing to not use a search engine because they were legally 
forced by the government to change something... pretty inane in my 
opinion. I'd like to see you run a search engine that the Chinese 
government dislikes some results on it, and then go to them "nah Chinese 
government, it's okay, we aren't going to remove the results that offend 
you". Google redirects www.google.cn to www.google.com.hk, and results 
are uncensored there.
