Ever wondered what your blog looks like in Chinese?

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/bri58020/public_html/mike/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 74

A recent outlier in the blog stats showed that someone from Shanghai had recently visited my “Future Filter” blog post, part of my campaign against Senator Conroy’s plan to censor Australia’s internet.  Interestingly, they had viewed it in Chinese, and this is what they saw.

As a geek, I was interested to see another use of Google Translate.

As an anti-internet censorship campaigner, I’m sure I have nothing to worry about.  Nobody from the People’s Republic of China would be particularly interested in opponents of internet censorship.  Or would they?
