Hey guys,
Anyone experienced any difficulties posting to Geekzone from China? I was in Shanghai for 2 days and whenever I tried to do a quote or reply, whenever I clicked post/quote it would take me too geekzone home. Is this some kind of security measure by Geekzone or Chinese censorship because tibet is written somewhere in the site?

Worked sweet from Germany.

There's currently a list of countries where you can read Geekzone but cannot post on Geekzone. This is to prevent spam.

It may sound harsh, but most spam comes from the countries in the list we have. We also check a database of known spammers on registration, but of course we can't catch everything from there, so we apply this blacklist.

We could perhaps exempt people with a certain number of posts from this blacklist. I will look into it tonight.
