As I understand the discussions on the SURBL list, the gist of the 
problem is that Chinese authorities have decided to block access to 
Twitter in the run-up to the 20th anniversary of the Tienanmen square 
protests, and SURBL have some DNS mirrors located behind the Great 
Firewall, resulting in incorrect DNS responses from the affected servers.
