This probably won't come as much of a surprise to, well, anyone, but when Reporters Without Borders came out with a report on how China censors the internet, China ordered that the report be censored. Of course, to do that, China's censors issued a list of targeted keywords to various ISPs, and that list made its way back to Reporters Without Borders, who have published it. I'd imagine that will also be censored, and the whole cycle can repeat itself. Either way, it does show a little bit of how the Great Firewall of China actually works.
