it sounds like you are easily fooled. The firms that was claimed to "ban" qihoo 360 softwares issued an official tweet saying that is false, yet things are still spreading around. These are probably made up by Baidu to protect its domain of market shares. This is Guangfa's official tweet, one of the companies that claimed they've banned, from what your article stated. http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/bmiddle/65dc62e5jw1dwdpjwi5kqj.jpg
only Baidu's provincial level reps banned their software; cuz they are officially at war.
