Google’s Project Dragonfly, the controversial project for a censored search product for China, has sparked two separate letters from the company’s employees arguing either for or against the project. As of Friday, however, a letter in opposition of the project had amassed more than 600 signatures, eclipsing the reported figure of a separate letter defending Dragonfly.

The Verge reported Thursday morning that the open letter calling on Google to kill the project had collected more than 400 names, but that figure quickly hiked more than 200 signatures by evening. By contrast, an internal letter in favor of the project obtained by TechCrunch had garnered 500 signatures at the time it was reported on Wednesday, despite having been “in circulation for a number of weeks.”
