OSM and the "greatest" firewall

Hi guys,
not sure whether some of you (maybe the @admins) noticed, but since a couple of days, our domain openstreetmap.org seems to be blocked by Chinese firewall, means our services (website, api) are not available/accessible anymore. I don’t think anything we can do, but just wanted to let you know about it.

What is the source of this information?

1st this hasn’t had a noticeable effect on contributions from China, see OSMstats - Statistics of the free wiki world map

2nd this is more than a fortnight old news, the 1st reports go back to end of October, see https://twitter.com/richardf/status/1587003752640397313

Me, myself trying to reach OSM without vpn.

Yes, thats why I was writing “since a couple of days” :wink:
