    Per the below news report, "good ol'" Ma will only remain
with us if he follows the party line. All of his postings to
date, were an "orchestrated big lie" to propegate that line. If
he had not, he'd have been "outa here."
 BEIJING (Reuters) - China clamped sweeping new controls on the
Internet Tuesday, warning that the network was being used to
leak state secrets and to spread "harmful information."

Regulations unveiled by Zhu Entao, assistant minister for public
security, cover a wide range of crimes, including leaking state
secrets, political subversion and spreading pornography and violence.

  In closing I wish you both as well as the rest of the folks
on this list a prosperous and healthy New Year.
