Gotta put a curb on personal financial success and limit it to only the few that are willing to pay top dollar for exclusivity, you know, willing to pay the right people to remove all competition.

This, to me, is where Anon and the like should be focusing their attention.

I might actually have some respect for Anon and others if they started doing that.

Hmm... I wonder how much of it is whack-a-mole.

If you shutdown a website and it pops back up under a different name/host and you shut it down again, did you shutdown one site or two?

“This means our content is getting stronger, while our supervision is getting more strict and more regulated," the ASS spokesman argued, presumably to the derisive laughter of the BBC reporter.”

Kinda like how the People of North Korea are “getting stronger” because the weak and “immoral” are dying from starvation?
 
I wonder if the general public WITHIN China can pull up an uncensored copy of the BBC article?  I doubt it since they routinely block the BBC’s Chinese language site.

Did the ASS spokesman ask for a mint?  Perhaps some Binaca?

No, but he did dash out of the room in search of a kidnapped dolphin. Laces out, Dan!

I'm not surprised to hear that they shut down that many websites just because of how much we've heard about the Chinese cracking down on Internet usage.

So Holly,

Want to justify your favorite communist country here?

 

I know its wrong to feed you, but I can't wait to be entertained by what you're going to say. Please make your response obnoxious, nonsensical, and hilarious as usual.

If western nations shut down all the porn sites they would be in the millions too. Also a large number of virises and other threats would be eliminated at the same time.
