I just read a piece of message on a forum, saying flickr has been filtered out by PRC government. Is that ture?
It was said that you could open the website link, but you couldn't see any photos.

Yes, it is ture. I have to see the photos via proxy.

Why?

I've heard that something controversial happened in some city or other, and the PRC is trying to make sure no photos of it get out.

Boo!

What about those that will be posted by people who are visiting?

just try this: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4286 if you 've got Firefox: 2.0a1 – 3.0a5.. I installed that add-on and Flickr works fine now. .really thanks for my friend gabyu.....

Can someone please explain how I can go through a proxy? I don't have firefox (whatever that is!) Just go through my apt server. It is really really pissing me off that I can no longer see any images on flickr. Other photo sites (e.g. photosig) have no problems - only flickr it seems

I think firefox is the easiest way to view flickr. Try downloading it from the official site, you could google it and i'm glad to see GFW didn't block Google. I've tried the amazing access flickr add-on, and it really works like a charm....

@Girlwraith: you can post a firefox download link on your chinese blog. It works well.

@ zo0my: I heard that Google is also sensored by GWR. Some of the search results won't show up if you use Google in China. It just sucks!!!
I don't know if the firefox works for other blocked sites. If so, it'll be GREAT!!!!
