filtered words

China Digital Times has posted a revised list of words that are filtered by China’s Internet blocking technologies. Naturally, the connection times out whenever I try to access, however I was able to grab the first paragragh:

Nine months ago, I posted the list of 1041 filtered words from a file obtained by a Chinese hacker from a Chinese Internet company Tencent.
This list was also cross checked with another two lists CDT
independently received from other Chinese ICP (Internet Content
Provider) and ISP (Internet Service Provider) companies. There are some
variations (less than 2%) of the banned list, but the vast majority of
words are the same. One of students in my last class has translated the
entire list into English. Since MSN has been apparently using a list of filtered words for their Chinese customers, it will be interesting to test this list on MSN Space
to see whether the list is the same.
