Ok, it looks like Bay Networks made a sweet deal with
Chinese commies.   Essentially, they will provide
technology for the state propaganda network and
censored Internet.

Their "partnership" with censors of a communist regime
is repugnant.  Using the modern technology to build a
giant brainwashing machine is very scary.

Some companies will do anything for a buck, though.

How about boycotting their products in U.S. and other
democratic countries?


YEAH!  YEAH!  That'll teach em!  Don't sell to a customer because of
what they do with the network.  I guess I should stop selling routers to
certain schools because they filter Usenet groups.  CENSORSHIP!  And
you know, the US Military buys a lot of Bay switches and Cisco routers,
so I guess we should boycott both vendors because they use weapons of mass
destruction.  And I heard Cabletron has a deal with the Devil.

Here, let me buy you a clue.
