Riku on WappBlog introduced me to a new internet euphemism in his post Flickr被和谐了?, "Has Flickr been harmonized?" Some Chinese internet users are finding the Flickr image servers to be blocked by the GFW today.

(UPDATE: it's a strange one. Connections made to get reset but I get through when I try the IP for the Yahoo-rented Akamai server hosting the data. Block or DNS misconfiguration?)

(UPDATE: On Twitter, user sidekick shows another way to talk about the block without directly saying "blocked": 希望Flickr只是因為最近4 june 而暫時GFW and Flickr 真的被GFW了? John, what's that type of linguistic construction called?)
