I can only say, that i have used a Chinese Tor Exit Node on the occasion
of the anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre and the RSF messages
about the blocking of google.com and sites like www.epochtimes.com,
www.hrichina.org and chinadigitaltimes.net. I wasn't able to access
these sites, but google.com, indeed without success with a search for
"Falung Gong". I don't believe, that all Chinese Tor Nodes are
governmental honeypots, but that their requests are blocked anywhere
inside the "great firewall" of China.
