Today (June 4 1989 ... i.e. 6/4/89) is the 23rd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. Naturally, the Chinese Censors were working overtime to block anything that made remote or oblique references to that event.

You can guess what happened next ... Searches for “Shanghai Composite” were blocked!"
