Typepad Blogs Banned in China

Glutter reports that any blogs published on typepad.com or blogs.com are now apparently banned in China, the latest step in their government's crackdown on the free flow of information through the internet, and on Chinese people's freedom of speech in general.

Among the crapload of blogs that would be affected by this are The Blueprint, Diesel Nation and Beats and Rants, just to name a few that we visit regularly. I wonder if it affects sites that use typepad but not their domain, like VH1's Best Week Ever blog?

Not sure what can be done to effectively protest this, but if anyone has ideas let me know. The least we can do is spread the word. You can also stay tuned to Glutter for more news and resources. That is, unless you are in China, in which case you cannot see her site anymore.
