Submission + - Google Stops Alerting Users To Chinese Censorship (

jfruh writes: "Last year, if you were in China and tried searching on Google for terms the government didn't want you knowing about, you'd get a warning message from Google, letting you know that the search "may break your connection to Google for a short while" — a subtle way of letting you know that your search would probably be censored. Naturally the Chinese authorities tried to censor this warning message, leading to a cat and mouse game between China and Google. But sometime in early December, Google gave up on the effort, leaving Chinese users further in the dark about what they're in the dark about. The company hasn't offered an explanation for the change."
