Zuckerberg Shows How Much He Loves China By Running in Beijing's AQI 337 Air Without a Mask

How far would you go to curry favor with China?

How about running through Tiananmen Square without a mask in this morning's thick-as-pea-soup AQI 337 air?

That's just what The Zuck-Up did this morning at around 10am Beijing time, remarking, "It's great to be back in Beijing! I kicked off my visit with a run through Tiananmen Square, past the Forbidden City and over to the Temple of Heaven."

Nice going, Mark.

If this doesn't get Facebook unbanned in China, nothing will.

P.S. so far there's no truth to the rumor that Zuckerberg will be recording his own live-action version of last fall's three-minute bilingual rap that attempts to explain China's 13th Five-Year Plan this afternoon after a quick swim through Houhai to demonstrate how clean the water is.

Well now we know Zuck's not using Astrill to post to FB from Beijing

Whatever it takes to get Facebook in China.

Hey ADMIN, do you understand ENGLISH?

So now you just want to make sure none of us can? Thanks a lot, Beijinger!

I am quite confident that 100 Astrill accounts are registered and paid for by the very people who run the GFW.

The very idea that this is not the case is totally asinine, and if you think that's not true, please get back on the boat you freshly got off of and immediately return to your home country.

If you as a user are getting any message from your VPN provider, you can be assured that same message is being sent to the hundreds of qualified professional tech people who help maintain the GFW and are, like you, paying subscribers to the service.

To even suggest that they rely on trolling expat chat groups to find the tips and tricks needed to maintain the system's effectiveness is just silly.

Blaming it on online chatter is a way for the service providers to make their awfully whiny customer base feel guilty, shut up and wait for the next (inevitably necessary) system upgrade.

We're continuously flattered that Astrill thinks that we are the reason that their product continues to get blocked in China. However, that they think that demonstrates that they clearly don't know who is doing the blocking or why, which makes us suspect they also don't know how the blocking is being done.

As of this morning, I am an Express VPN customer.

If Zuckerberg broke Chinese law by posting this on FB (a banned site in China) while he was in China, then he really should be arrested, tried, convicted and given a proper fine or jail sentence.
