Ok, this is weird.

Someone in China is mirroring clusterstruck.

I guess they intend to siphon off my readership and direct them to their own banners.
If that’s the case they’re doing it pretty badly.

Let’s see if Deny from stops this before it gets serious.

  1. Life is strange. Even in the land of “Please study Chinese dialect”.

  2. How did you find this out?

  3. China has very restrictive outbound web content filters that are forced on their entire citizenry except for universities, high-level members of the PRC, and the special economic zones (like Hong Kong) with the ostensible purpose to protect the public morals and decency. It’s not uncommon for people with unfiltered net connections to mirror content to allow others to evade the state enforced web content filters. So, whereas it there’s a chance there’s a more nefarious purpose, you might have just cut off some of your chinese fans.

  4. I have Google Alert‘s that tell me anytime Google finds a new search result for “Tone Milazzo”, “clusterstruck” and “comic book”.

    I’m supposing that the site is Chinese based in the cryptic line “Internet is J8M.(Chinese dialect, please study Chinese)”.

    And I got their IP address using whois.

    Can’t touch this!

  5. That makes sense.
    The part about the PRC, not the part about my “Chinese fans”.
    I’ll de-deny j8n.net and keep an eye on them.

  6. Hey, you might be surprised, back in the great web blackout of 1996, when we blanked our pages to protest the communications decency act, I found I had a great following in Brazil, Mexico, and Germany. German public television even ran a piece on my web site. You never know who’s out there reading.
