These days, a lot of smallish ISP's are blocking CNNIC and/or KRNIC space

As for CN, the truth of the matter is, the Golden Shield is a very
internally oriented (not just xenophobic) filter.  CN cares a whole bunch
what the rest of the world does to its people.  CN doesn't care nearly at
all what its people do to the rest of the world.  Quite the double standard.

The social problem will not be fixed in the foreseeable future, so we have
to settle for an imperfect technical solution -- for now.  For some
operations, the spew level is so high that blanket blocking CNNIC is the
only reasonably maintainable option.
