Has Metafilter been targeted by China?

Given recent events in the news, how safe is Metafilter from foreign cybersaboteurs?

Meta Book Club: The Woman Warrior

Maxine Hong Kingston grew up in two worlds: the "solid America," of confounding white "ghosts" to which her parents emigrated, and the misogynistic China of her mother's mesmerizing "talk-stories," where girls were worthless, tradition was exalted and only a strong, wily warrior woman could scratch her way upward. The next meeting of the Mefi Book Club will be held in MetaChat on Tuesday, April 26th. We'll be discussing Ms. Kingston's powerful, controversial and award-winning memoir, The Woman Warrior, and her attempts to discern the truths behind those talk-stories while discovering her personal identity. Please check out the Hungerford lecture on the book (or watch the video), and join us!

Update on my daughter's broken back.

Mustn't offend China!

Just so we all know for future reference, why is "FREE TIBET!" not a viable answer for this question?

Beijing Meetup?

God dammit. Everybody's over there in the US and England having their little metafilter meetups, but based on my last post in askmefi, there seem to be a few of us mefites in Beijing, and we're missing out. Well I've had enough, and I say we need to rise up and outmeetup the Anglomeetupspherers. So if you're in Beijing, or you'll be in Beijing soon, talk to me about where/when/how we should do this.
