The OFFICIAL gfwlist here!
Everyone knows that netizens in Mainland China are under oppression. There is a government-run firewall that blocks and interferes with websites containing sensitive or unwanted information. Meanwhile there’s an extensive network of self-censors in all domestic Internet companies who delete contents which might incur the wrath of the people behind the rigorous censorship regime, but there are also lots of websites refuse to crouch. Hence they are often blocked.
There are other cases for example many streaming services or restricted content providers have blocked IPs from China. What a pity!
We don't dismantle the wall, we just find a hole to bypass then instead. Don't ask us how to bypass, we don't know.
TL;DR: This list embraces websites which Chinese authorities and some service providers don't want Chinese to view on the Internet.
