    Hardly unexpected, but rather later than I thought. Can't work out why they aren't blocking the English word though.

    I doubt they would do that, giving how addicted the chinese are to the internet, that would be a bad move on there part.

    China censor anything on the internet that is critical of their own government.
    By extension, the news of a revolt in Egypt is probably not something they want the Chinese public to be aware of, just so they don't get any ideas...

    Interesting aspect is, however, that they didn't block it off in Baidu, which probably should've been the first to go off if internet censorship was exercised on an event. Baidu (China's Google), as well as Youku and Tudou (essentially China's YouTube) all seem to not take effect from this.
