This is not some ordinary firewall, but the Great Firewall of China.
I don't know any way to bypass it. Actually if someone here tries to visit a blocked site a couple of times(to no avail of course), he/she will lose internet connection for a few minutes.
I am not an expert on this. But I guess tribaltrouble2.com is a "collateral damage" in the blocking of some other website(s). Maybe they have similar IP addresses.If tribaltrouble2.com itself repulsed the people in charge, they would have blocked tribaltrouble.com as well, as they have similar contents.
Maybe I will not be able to play for a while. Don't feel sorry for me lord dork. Let's think of it this way. PRC is much more open than it was 30(or even 10) years ago. Say it would be truly a miracle to see someone in North Korea to join the English discussion here. Though the long term political future of PRC is very much uncertain. I would stop here because this is not a political forum. Good luck.
