Yahoo! Messenger is an on-line Internet chatting software. In its Chinese version, there is a special keyword list file, sfilter.txt that is used by the former Chinese President Jiang Zemin and his group to block or monitor information related to the listed keywords. Recently this file was exposed on the Internet. I found that terms like "Truth-Compassion-Tolerance", "China has no freedom of speech," "China has no freedom," "no human rights," etc, are all on the banned keyword list.

Internet blocking and monitoring is an invention of Jiang's regime, which boasts its blocking technology has reached a "world-class level." We should know that in many countries, monitoring and blocking the free flow of information violates citizens' basic human rights and privacy. Only dictators such as Jiang Zemin would use this kind of Internet clamping technology.

To control the free flow of information on the internet, the Jiang group has invested billions of yuan each year to develop information blocking technology and has hired hundreds of thousands of Internet police officers to monitor the Internet and prevent the masses from learning the truth.

Among the filtered keywords, only a fraction are in the categories of pornography or violence. Apparently, the suppression of pornography and violence is only an excuse. There are scores of variations of Jiang Zemin's names in the keyword list. It's understandable that variations of Jiang's names are blocked, but what's wrong with words such as "freedom," "human rights," "truth, compassion, tolerance"? Pornography and websites depicting violence are very popular in China, but Jiang's followers show them little concern. Why are they so afraid of Chinese citizens sharing information freely?

Ever since Jiang Zemin started persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, his followers have applied more and more Internet blocking in China. Luckily, many righteous people have developed anti-internet-blocking technology to return freedom of speech to Internet users.

Among the key words, many are Falun Gong related. "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" are words Jiang and his followers are afraid of. No wonder "lies, evil, and violence" are so popular in China.

Actually Falun Gong has spread to over 60 countries and is legal in all of them, and has been issued over 1200 proclamations from different countries and groups. In China, Jiang's persecution of Falun Gong is totally based on lies and slander spread through the media. If information flows freely on the Internet, Jiang's lies will be exposed quickly. Then nobody will trust him anymore. Here we can see clearly why Jiang and his clique blocks the Internet: liars are always afraid of the truth!

By keyword filtering, Jiang's group is forcefully installing a filter in Chinese people's mouths which prevents them from saying things such as "no human rights," "no freedom of speech," etc.

Jiang Zemin and his group claims that the most important human right in China is the right to survive. By this logic, if one is alive, he or she has the best of human rights. So if one demands the right of freedom of belief, then Jiang's faction thinks one is asking too much, and that person can be killed as they wish. According to verified numbers, over 1000 Falun Gong practitioners have been killed, and tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been sent to jail. The torture and killing of Falun Gong practitioners is still going on in China. These facts are at the top of information being blocked by Jiang and his regime. Also, thanks to anti-blocking technology, these kinds of facts have been continuously made available outside of China.
