    Subject: More on China's redirecting of Google to third-party sites
    Date: Tue, 10 Sep 2002 12:23:59 -0400
    Coverage on news.com (<http://news.com.com/2100-1023-957237.html> -- from
    Reuters) and elsewhere reflects that requests for Google in China are now
    met with pages other than the genuine Google site.  With my ability to
    access the Chinese network, I have prepared a series of screenshots showing
    the other services that, in my testing, were provided in response to
    requests for Google.  They're quite striking -- it's incredibly odd to see
    other pages below the Google heading in the Address Bar! -- and so I thought
    your readers might be interested.
    The screen shots are available at
