I am in Dubai at the moment, and to my big surprise the Shanghai Daily website is blocked here. Also many other sites and services that work fine in China you cannot use here, Skype for example. But why on earth did they decide to block the Shanghai Daily? Other China newspaper sites like the China Daily and People’s Daily work fine.
What is very nice in Dubai, is that they tell you that if you feel the site is blocked in error you can contact the Internet Contact Center (they provide both a feedback form and a phone number). China can learn something from this. But I don’t miss the Shanghai Daily enough to file a request to unblock it.
