The Censorship in World of Warcraft (China) Even Covers the Passwords!

The Censorship in World of Warcraft (China) Even Covers the Passwords!

Yes, I know I should contact the support of your partner in China (NetEase) or even China government, but both you and me know NetEase could do nothing with this, or they would just deny the fact.

Don't try to suggest me: check the Internet connection / hardware, contact your ISP ... I'm a programmer, and I know the problem definitely:

When I use some characters in my password (which listed in the blacklist of NetEase/China government), I will be dropped in the game and when I login again, then drop again minutes later.

Change the password would solve the problem, but...

I've used the password: 'fuckcensorship' and when the issue happened, I guess it caused by the password, and solved it by myself, not hopping any help from the support of NetEase.

And today, my wife (before today 12/22 2012, she played this game normally) triggered this issue, she use the password 'hellokitty19851106'. I don't know why this password could trigger the blacklist, and which characters triggered it.

That is ridiculous! Our password not just be monitored by the government, and be included into the political censorship system too!

Xdebug NOT Working? It's not Your Fault!

Are you a PHPer using Eclipse & Xdebug under Ubuntu 12.04? Something wrong, the debugger don't work now? Or even the system told you some build-in class like PDO is not defined?

It's not your fault, don't keeping checking your configuration files, read and read the PDF like Debugging PHP using Eclipse and PDT.

It caused by the bug of Eclipse PDT itself.
