    June 4 is cynically referred to by IT professionals as “Chinese Internet Maintenance Day”.

    Keep in mind that a great deal of Chinese don’t even know what happened on June fourth: they may have some idea but rarely the full story. Censorship in China is remarkable in that it has been both very extensive and very successful. I would guess that this is partially because of the strong appeal to authority in Chinese culture, and partially the zeal of the Communist government in hiding their sins.
