Wikipedia allowed around the Silk Curtain again

Wikipedia ban lifted in China! Except for seaches for sensative words like "Taiwan Independence," "June 4" and other such topics.

Activity on nonprofit Wikimedia Foundation's Chinese Wikipedia site has skyrocketed since its release, which Internet users in China first started reporting on Nov. 10. Since then, the number of new users registering to contribute to the site has exceeded 1,200 a day, up from an average of 300 to 400 prior to the unblocking. The number of new articles posted daily has increased 75% from the week before, with the total now surpassing 100,000, according to the foundation.
