Today (June 4 1989 ... i.e. 6/4/89) is the 23rd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. Naturally, the Chinese Censors were working overtime to block anything that made remote or oblique references to that event.

Well, sometime during the day the Shanghai Composite Index dropped by 64.89 points ... triggering the wrath of the censors!

You can guess what happened next ... Searches for “Shanghai Composite” were blocked!"
