Well, if you know YouTube then you must know it is one of the most popular sites on the internet.
It can be used to share videos with friends (and the world), a source of news, movie previews, songs, short films, funny clips, education...
The uses are wide-ranging and various...
Need I say more?

Of course not.  You asked me why we need China Daily and I answered.  Again, why do we need access to youtube?


So you condemned it without knowing what the heck it was?

Sounds about right for most of the clowns here.

What would have been a more reasonable response would be "What's youtube ?"

Does anyone know why it's blocked this time?
The block isn't that effective because Firefox's built in proxy is able to bring it up.
Another case of making certain sites more difficult to view bu ...

China has blocked access to the world's most popular video-sharing site, YouTube, in what is being seen as part of a crackdown ahead of the sensitive 20th anniversary of the TAM Square pro-democracy movement.
YouTube has confirmed that its website is being blocked in China, although the firm offered no explanation for why Chinese authorities have barred access to the popular video-sharing service.
"YouTube has been blocked in China since yesterday," company spokesman Scott Rubin said on Tuesday.
"We do not know the reason for the blockage, and we're working as quickly as possible to restore access to our users in China."
Access to YouTube had been spotty earlier in March, the one-year anniversary of widespread protests by Tbtns against Chinese rule.
