Wikipedia gone

Problem with censoring Wikipedia is that the technical background as collaborative platform to share content production also makes it quite easy to copy that content to other websites.

Much of the content in text format helps to transfer, store, and even translate the data.

Furthermore, compared to many other websites, Wikipedia does not only allow scraping and copying its content but they provide API tools for that.

The same data can be available in various other sources, and beyond blocking foreign internet altogether, it may be futile to chase that rabbit.
