Welcome to BooYahoo!

Our aim is to get freedom-loving citizens of the internet to discontinue their use of Yahoo! services as a result of their oppressive policies, which resulted in the imprisonment of an innocent journalist in China.

While we are very interested in giving notice to China's human rights abuses, our focus is to preserve global freedom of speech on the internet.

If you decide to take part, please sign the petition.
You may also add the BooYahoo! button to your blog. (See the links on the right for more information.)

Let me know if you link to this site, and you will be linked in kind.

Thanks!

What Do Deployed Troops Want? Check Their Blogs ...
Web logs, or blogs, are quickly becoming a popular pastime for many Americans, including service members deployed to Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.

So what is china is censorship about the press or pressuring the yahoo to give the real identity of the user. Please do more research on U.S itself. You will know that U.S is not so freedom after all.
This is one of the article you could view if you interested to know what is happening around your country.

the best part of all, there are more hanky panky things if you really look close enough.

So do judge other country if your country is a same as them.

Anonymous,

The goal of this blog is to preserve freedom of speech on the internet, which is not limited to any single country. The internet is everywhere.

"The simple fact of the matter is this: If we cannot make
globalization work for all, in the end it will work for none." (UN
Secretary-General Kofi Annan)

Jim,

For your knowledge, Internet is limited. Who is controling it? Check this out
http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/internet/10/20/congress.internet.reut/index.html

In addition, few months ago I read about article about both C_I_A and F_B_I have the authority to tap to anyone and they have a specialise tools to do it, without the concern of the user.

So Jim, you sure you know what your government is doing now? By the way, I totally okay with this regulation, as I believe that regulation is good to maintain stability. But what I do not like is the _U_S_ is always trying to portray itself as a true democratic nation. Common, why bother try to said you are good while in the back you doing the bad things.

If your aim really "Our aim is to get freedom-loving citizens of the internet" then I guess you should boycott _U_S_ too :P

I've just linked my blog to yours, and started setting up alternatives for yahoogroups I own, and sent lobbying letters to every yahoogroup I am in, and given notice that I will withdraw from yahoo totally within a month (to allow time for alternatives). I'd like my blog to be like-wise linked, it's an ecclectic collection of freedom raves on everything from gender gaols to concentration camps for refugees. http://www.may-welby.blogspot.com
