Its pretty sad when I see one of my favorite people, the Chinese, being so abused by their government. They are such a great people (the average Chinese person, not the Communist Party) and they are capable of so much. They just need to sort out their government. The government serves the people, the people do not serve the government.
China cracks down on P2P telephonic services like Skype and declared them illegal. This is done under the pretense that only government regulated telecoms may offer telephone calls, but its really because P2P telephonic services take the control out of the Communist Partys control and into the hands of the citizen.
Skype joins a long list of famous online applications like Facebook to be banned by the corrupt Chinese government.
