Google China doesn't block wrongly spelled word

"Paul Boutin points out on his blog that if you search for "Tiananmen," you get peaceful photos of the Beijing square -- but if you search for common misspellings like "Tienanmen," "Tianenmen," or "Tiananman," you get photos of tanks."

Somehow, I think it is not an oversight ...
