Strato on Chinese Web Censorship

I have a few domains with one of the biggest web host in the world – strato.de. so i find out that surfdog.de and swiss-chris.com does not work in china. surfcat does – which is also on strato. so i did complain of course. now here is the answer – in german:

Sehr geehrter Herr Hastenteufel,

vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage vom 26.07.2008, die ich Ihnen gerne beantworte.
Ich habe grade Ihre Seiten swiss-chris.com und surfdog.de überprüft und konnte ohne Einschränkungen von hier aus auf diese Zugreifn.

Die chinesische Regierung blockiert aber bestimmt Webseiten so dass diese aus China nicht zu erreichen sind. Bei Ihren Webseiten scheint mir so ein Fall vorzuliegen.

Bitte setzen Sie sich mit der chinesischen Regierung in Verbindung um eine Entfernung Ihrer Webseiten aus dem Filter zu erreichen.

for my non german speaking friends – apart from taking 5 (!!!!!!!!!) days to get back to me and not even write proper german: the idiot tells me tha he can reach the sites without a problem! (oh well he sits in germany…)
than he tells me that the chinese government does block certain sites and in my case it seems to be so! (well why do i complain??)
And now – it is really funny!!! he tells me to get in touch with the chinese government to tell them to get my sites out of their filter! now i will call them tomorrow and tell them! what the fuck is that? stupid bullshit. they do not filter my 2 domains of course. they filter a ip range and their might be some tibet whatsoever on the same ip range or some porn. why cant he not put me on another ip range or however it works. hrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggg

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
