    China’s content crackdown sends cold chill across the internet | South China Morning Post

    Now they have banned online content depicting homosexuality. Is it the 1950's?

    This is a fascinating thread to follow. I'm eager/terrified to read it again in five years.

    The biggest impact here is probably reducing the number of trolls and the amount of abuse online, especially in forums and comment sections.

    It is hard to imagine the army of government paid thought police having to be fully transparent on who they are.

    The SCMP comments section generally has a couple of articles a day that are bombarded with highly aligned comments. They are highly predictable

    If
    Rule of Law then bombared comments stating the PenDems are destroying the rule of law
    Occupy then They are criminals funded by foreign forces and Benny Tai should be XXXXXXX
    Other Country issues - China is a powerful nation. We need to have a war to prove this

    if you missed the Cambridge saga, China has started to try and throw its weight around in academic circles

    A Chinese import agency had requested Cambridge University Press (CUP) alter the website to make articles concerning topics such as the 1989 Tiananmen killings and the Cultural Revolution unavailable to readers inside China.
    no wonder there is concern/fear around National Education systems. In the future, Hong Kong kids could grow up without knowledge of certain sensitive Chinese events

    I stopped reading both the Times of India and the SCMP when the border issues in Bhutan were being hyped up...

    Unfortunately RTHK seems to be heading the same way.
