It's not blocked but that depends on who your service provider is in China .
The Great Firewall doesn't block it , that much is certain . If anything , it's either a secondary firewall (like at your company) or , as is so common in China , a local service provider like a company district . For those that don't know it , the simple explanation of a company district is literally a city district that is based around one particular industry . Since said companies tend to be owned in whole or in part by the government , they basically run like another level of local government . When you live in an area like that , while you can get other service providers , usually you'll just get what the company provides .
That's one explanation anyway but the main point is that this site isn't blocked by the feds in China . Try it again ... you may actually get a different result .
