"Way to go NG Sell out your American viewers since you can't make buck here. After all, only thing that matters is cash right? Fuck you guys, seriously. If you wan't to apeal to Chinese citizens that's great but drop this moronic "Theme" you have here and stop shoving it in our faces because your cash crop is deminishing because of economy. Aren't you an American? Keep it that way. Who fucking cares about China being able to view your site besides well....YOU AND YOUR POCKETS?"

"I feel srry for the chinese, and I wish they could see freedom of speech at its best, and yes at it's worst. You use to be able to see that on this site. Any fuckin weirdo could put any type of music, movie, or game on here and have it rated by anyone on the web. No matter how creepy, disgusitng, or wrong it may have been. Dont' get me wrong tom, I've seen some really cool stuff on here, some of which touched me. Yet at the same time the disgusting stuff is what made the site unique, it gave a message of hey it's ok to be fucked up, put ur thoughts on here no matter what they may be. I belive i've seen videos on here of a man humping an animal on a play ground while childern watched, what happen to that tom. You even got rid of pico, dude wtf, you even let them cenosor something you made. You censored the most popular game to ever come on this site, you censored the most popular video too. Are stupid or something. Your gonna lose all your great artist from this shit dude, no one will post here if your just gonna block there shit. What you've done has made me sick as fuck dude, it's really disgusting. Tom you should move to china and just be a fuckin communist, because in America we beilive in the freedom of speech, in all its forms."

"I just posted a review and it was altered. what do you wanna bet that it's gonna be deleted just coz they don't like it!
This is sickening!
If you refuse to remedy these despicable changes please instruct me on how I can delete my account, for I shall not be a part of this DOGSHIT website if it will remain dogshit and silence the opinions of anyone that doesn't agree with them.
I thought Newgrounds was about expressing yourself through flash and game and to be able to honestly review these games and flashes fairly, with our own expressed opinions.
We can no longer do that!!!!!!!!!!!!!! even my personal details have been changed, and so, no longer reflects me and my personality!!! and why has it been changed?!
well here's an answer for you: it's is because you are pandering to a bunch of ignorant one sided Government bastards who want to isolate themselves from the outside world and it's opinions and teach there people to conform to an anti-Tibetan, anti-foreign, anti-Everything that doesn't agree with them military based society that has no way of knowing about anything other than their own governments brain washing propaganda! and you're doing all of this just to fetch a few extra bucks!"

"Let me make a fact clear i am an american and just an average person. what im trying to get is although china will increase newgrounds revenue it has compromised newgrounds very way you can nolonger view anything by anyone. i am not outraged just concerned that you will lose allought of your none chiniesse users to the changes to newgrounds for th pleasment of chinas government officials. at first i thought it was a great ideal till i read the fine print on many of the submissions. The only way i can see a comprimise between all newgrounders is ethier giving china the boot or mabye creating a seperate server to all the old newgrounders who are not willing to put up with this uneaded nonsense of government approved submissions"
"I, as registered member of Communist Party of Canada and youth organizer in Young Communist League of Canada would like to formalize complaint due to new policy between Government of Peoples Republic of China and Newgrounds. I can not stand new cencorship that China has put on table. What ever happened to free speech? You plaster site with reds and golds to honour this "momentous" occaision between Newgrounds has basiaclly turned their backs on their old values and has only lobbied Chinese Government to allow access to 280 something million potential viewers simply for profit."

"Are you using new grounds to support the one-china policy? (forced unification of China-Taiwan-Tibet) any response will be appreciated, as I find this very important, and it hinges upon my visiting of New Grounds ever again."

:L Now, not only does this PROVE that 90% of the Internet using population are complete idiots, but I think it says a lot about the average American user.. Attempting to use correct spelling, grammar, punctuation etc, and still misspelling and attempting to sound intelligent makes you look like an ass (see its giving you an opinion of me already :L). But on THIS SCALE.. I have to say.. was FECKIN' HILARIOUS!! I still think it's funny to ring my mother on April Fool's Day (YES, IT WAS APRIL FOOL'S DAY YOU FECKIN TWATS XD) and tell her Ive been arrested for possession with intent to supply, and i need her to come down to the Garda Station (im irish.. Garda = Police/Cop/Donutmuncher) and bail me out XD To whomever ive quoted from Chairman Fulp's quotes (:L), YOU HAVE MADE AN UTTER ASS OF YOURSELVES :L but yknow what... THANK YOU! Because without you, April Fool's Day would just be left to 4Chan... :(

THANK YOU ^_^ :D

People are fucking ridiculous.

Brilliant stuff man, I love imagining you guys just sitting around a table brain storming for an April Fools joke.
I also really want a page with all of the little things I must have not noticed.

Here's a picture I wanted to upload yesterday buy failed.

COOL.

To continue being unblocked, we would have to have shut down blogs, as well as close the Flash and Audio Portals. While this was tempting, we decided it would be too drastic of a change

Temping my ass Tom! What the fuck is New Grounds without a fucking flash portal? A shitty BBS community? Incase this is news to you, China is a communist government, which would mean no freedom of speech which would be retarded.

Good riddance chinks'.

Lol, the China theme was a bit scary at first and it was funny how words like "movie" and "game" was either "physical" or "mental exercise" and "Tom" was "Chairman Fulp" It was a nice small change but you could not see any Mature flashes like my favorite the Madness series and I was pissed but I knew it was temporary. It was fun while it lasted, poor China does know what it is missing, but alas fare thee well...

(The Serious Asian Man leveling system was genius!!!)

I cant understand HOW people fell for it... It was April Fool's Day. WASNT IT BLATANTLY OBVIOUS? I guess people are used to being spoonfed the correct information (thanks Wiki :L) so theyd need a nice big 'WARNING - THIS IS AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE - DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY'

...Even then.. some people still wouldnt cop it...

I am seriously considering writing all of my blog entries in ENCRYPTED CODES from now on. It appears to have worked, although the next time, it will be neccessary to take down the censors through means of illicit programming.

The will to dismantle the the Great Firewall of China has been enbolden by this social experiement.

The future of this website will depend on whether or not we can take down the barriers that prevent our freedom of expression.
