    I think they'd probably be happy to reduce the influx!

    This fits the pattern of an increasingly aggressive approach adopted by Chinese diplomats to push back against the West over the virus. It will backfire though. China's image was not the best to begin with, now it's down in the gutter:

    I used to be able to share a certain number of articles for free from my Times subscription. Not sure if that works now. It’s a bit to long to copy and paste.

    Try this.... let me know if it doesn’t work.

    Friendly message from your rulers: "Unauthorized memories are subversive and subject to measures protecting 'national' security"


    Quartz 404
    Chinese internet users who uploaded coronavirus memories to GitHub have been arrested


    A group of volunteers in China who worked to prevent digital records of the coronavirus outbreak from being scrubbed by censors are now targets of a crackdown.

    Cai Wei, a Beijing-based man who participated in one such project on GitHub, the software development website, was arrested together with his girlfriend by Beijing police on April 19. The couple were accused of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble,” a commonly used charge against dissidents in China, according to Chen Kun, the brother of Chen Mei, another volunteer involved with the project. Chen Mei has been missing since that same day. On April 24, the couple’s families received a police notice that informed them of the charge, and said the two have been put under “residential surveillance at a designated place.”

    Chinese citizens had been turning to Microsoft-owned GitHub after the outbreak began, as it remains one of the few major foreign websites that can still be accessed in China. Now, volunteers linked to these GitHub pages are facing the growing risk of reprisals from authorities.

    The executive branch of government seem to be a little irrational of late.
