You've clearly never been to China then either
Chinese censorship is noticeable and rife from any point of entry.
The statement of a Chinese intranet is necessarily not accurate but a good catch-all approximation.
Image search through flickr, google and others is regularly interrupted, amongst others. Any links that haven't passed the censors or they've forgot to take off black lists are blocked, youtube and facebook aren't periodically blocked, they are permanently blocked, as are twitter, foursquare, tumblr and a whole host of other web 2.0 outfits.
Links with RSS, blog or other keywords that the firewall censors are also blocked. With the added side effect that your net connection is dropped for a couple of minutes.
And I personally believe it's not a censorship thing, but an economic activity to boost the markets of companies like Baidu
