    Google Inc. will stop censoring its search results in China and may pull out of the country after discovering that computers hackers had tricked human rights activists into opening their e-mail accounts to outsiders.

    Apparently, some sophisticated hackers in China--code word for Chinese Gov.--tried to access the gmail accounts of some Chinese human rights advocates. They may pull the lug on their operations in China entirely.

    I wonder when the Chinese will be subjected to the same kind of hacker attacks that they have grown fond of inflicting on other countries around the world?
