Dear Collin,

i can sense the increase in the usage of Ultrasurf, as i am hearing friends
using it, my concern is about the security of these tools and if there are
other tools that could be used, the more there are tools to bypass the
censorship the better as that will increase the number of ways in which
users are able to bypass the system and also prevent the government
from targeting certain software or a group of people who are using these
software. also as event escalate i believe the government will crack down
more on internet and telecommunication. but what is good that there are
several people out there trying to point out to new tools and new method to
help the people on the group so i am very optimistic.

best regards
