    "Ruhua rage" - Not "Wumao" anymore...

    Looks like many folks will have to learn a new term to call some of the patriots who lurk on these forums.

    In all seriousness... its a good article outlining all the online outrage that is generated or manufactured in China.

    Ruhua rage: How China’s online nationalists mobilized around one key word

    The accusation of ruhua, or “insulting China,” has become a powerful magic spell on the country’s internet in recent years. Social media users invoke it to attack perceived cultural slights and defend the Chinese Communist Party regime. Netizens and even big foreign brands have learned of its power to break reputations.

    In Chinese characters, ruhua is 辱华 辱華.

    It’s used enough that the “T9” (think autocorect or speed type for Chinese) or Chinese, prompts the characters for “ruhua”.

    Rebranding.. for a fresh start.. like how some beauty treatment salons close down after 1-2 yrs when bad reviews start to accumulate.. and then resurface shortly after as new salon in new location..

    Does it work?

    Seeing a deluge of low quality, ill informed and often rude comments in forums and news sites really seems counterproductive in societies with free access to information.

    My profiling of the online army is diff.. but I think they really don't need to use any catchy labels to get the same effect..

    :O moment esp coined by prc chinese.. I think this can only happen when ppl consistently choose numbers in strength and tribe anger over objectivity and merit as weapons so that they can win over arguments quick and fast w/o doing it the normal way and have their head up their asses for so long to be able to coin this and no one realizing how stupid it is. Who in the right mind would coin a term that's derogatory to ur own ppl as the catchphrase? It's like african americans saying nigga lives matter as the tag whenever they want to get a reaction. It's just 😑

    I am now convinced, was already suspecting this is actually a closet wumao forum. Cuz that is like the most boring food fight ever 😑 only the prc chinese can be this cheerless and joyless. HK you getting there too I suspect..

    Ok how do you categorize..which is wumao (paid to say) or real person?

    Are any of the comments to these 3 diff tweets supposedly wumao?

    I think the only possible "paid" one is the Xinjiang one and I'm only guessing for that one. The rest imo are all not wumao. Just normal regular individuals..

    I think HK, UK and the world just does not want to face up the truth that there is no real brainwashing anymore.. that this wumao ruhua business is still the culprit for why CCP still reins such a tight hold over the PRC chinese.

    The wumao ruhua everyone refers to is just PRC chinese to me.
