Newburyport Posts Blocked in China!

The political party that maintains the world's largest standing army is terrified of a Massachusetts blogger named Tom Salemi.
Newburyport Posts, a blog devoted to politics and life in the New England seaside town of Newburyport, is blocked in the Chinese mainland.
"All attempts to reach www.newburyportposts.com from Shanghai return a 'Bad Request' page written mostly in Chinese," said fellow blogger Paul Karl Lukacs. "Clearly, the Chinese Communist Party is scared of running dog counter-revolutionary Salemi and his democratic, bottom-up suggestions regarding fencing on bike paths."
"China probably just blocks every page hosted by Blogger," said Salemi, in a quote which Lukacs made up while drinking tea in a Huangpu District cafe.

Damn, that means I'm missing out on like one million potential readers.

Two million?
