Now China wants to censor online comments:

The new changes affect Provisions on the Management of Internet Post Comments Services, a regulation that first came into effect in 2017. Five years later, the Cyberspace Administration wants to bring it up to date.

"The proposed revisions primarily update the current version of the comment rules to bring them into line with the language and policies of more recent authority, such as new laws on the protection of personal information, data security, and general content regulations," says Jeremy Daum, a senior fellow at Yale Law School's Paul Tsai China Center.

[...] But recently, there have been several awkward cases where comments under government Weibo accounts went rogue, pointing out government lies or rejecting the official narrative. That could be what has prompted the regulator's proposed update.

Chinese social platforms are currently on the front lines of censorship work, often actively removing posts before the government and other users can even see them. ByteDance famously employs thousands of content reviewers, who make up the largest number of employees at the company. Other companies outsource the task to "censorship-for-hire" firms, including one owned by China's party mouthpiece People's Daily. The platforms are frequently punished for letting things slip.

Beijing is constantly refining its social media control, mending loopholes and introducing new restrictions. But the vagueness of the latest revisions makes people worry that the government may ignore practical challenges. [...] The tricky question is, no one knows if the government intends to enforce this immediately.

    This is a classic authoritarian government move. Mandate some ridiculous requirement without regard for whether its even possible to carry out the requirement. That will just contribute to the lawless environment of modern China. Either they have social media or they enforce that particular regulation.

      They will have social media.

      In its final incarnation, you will need a personalized account with the social media site, and your account will be tied to your social credit (which will also be visible, for shaming purposes and of course to ensure that people don't want to associate with you). And it will be a communist utopia, censorship will be totally absent, because people already self-censor the living shit out of everything they say because they fear for their social credit.

      As a neat side effect, you get to find all the "incorrigible deviants" who'd still dare to defy the party line, for free.

          It's not necessary to policy that. Just have the other users policy it. It's Web 2.0, surveillance state version. Instead of "you make the content, we make the profit", it's now "you do the surveillance and get social credit for it".

          That was a jab on the old "once we REALLY have communism, we won't have any need for KGB/Stasi/Securitate anymore" adage of the time. Yes, that was a real thing back in the days: "Sure, today we still need (insert internal security organization) because there is still internal enemies of the state, but once we have REAL communism, this will no longer be necessary".

          The joke this launched was "Will we really not need the KGB anymore when we finally have Communism?" "Yes, of course. People will have learned to arrest themselves by then".

      TV is the thing this year, oh

      And TV is the thing this year
      Now he turned my dial to channel one

      He turned my dial to channel two
      That station thrilled me through and through
      He moved one notch to channel three
      I said oh how I love what you're doin' to me
      He said, wait a minute, let's try channel four
      Just about that time someone knocked on the door
      TV is the thing this year, oh yes
      TV is the thing this year,
      Radio was great, now it's out of date
      TV is the thing this year
      The way he eased into channel five
      That man must of had fluid drive
      He moved once more to channel six
      Then he opened up his bag of tricks
      On channel seven the show was late
      But we got our kicks on channel eight
      He turned my dial to channel nine
      Said Baby, your set is workin' fine
      He moved on up to channel ten
      Then we started all over again
      He finally hit channel eleven
      I cried mama, he treats your daughter so good!
      TV is the thing this year, yes
      TV is the thing this year
      Yes radio was great, but now it's out of date

    I don't understand what you clumsy guys are trying to defend here in this discussion.

    You live much worse and unsafe than Chinese. Both America and Europe have much more restrictive data suppression and socnet posting policies than China ever had.

    Democracy is Ancient Superstition. It never existed.

    Your fantasy dream is broken and it was you who broke it.

    Keep Lying to Yourselves.

        God, the level of rhetoric on this site is atrocious. Have you never spoken with a person from a Chinese background who has consumed too much Chinese state propaganda? It's even worse that talking with Americans who have consumed too much American state propaganda.

      You live much worse and unsafe than Chinese. Both America and Europe have much more restrictive data suppression and socnet posting policies than China ever had.

      Looks like a really good reason you don't understand - assuming you are telling any sort of truth here. Just look at the subject of this story - China stepping up its censorship of online comments to where it's mandating a preview of every comment made. US and most of Europe aren't doing that. For a glaring example, your post came from somewhere in central Europe to a US-based platform. Nobody previewed it. Nobody censored it. Nobody punished you for it.

      Another example: pollution from China is so bad, it's making pollution in downwind US cities significantly worse [weather.com]. There's similar research for US-originating plumes of pollution and in comparison, they're hard to detect [folk.nilu.no].

      You can tell us how unlucky we are not to live in a thugocracy paradise like China, but no army of censors forces us to take you seriously.

    at least the Chinese state seems to try to work in the interests of the Chinese. In America the government and big tech are all under the control of the international, subversiveJew who openly works against the American People, including White genocide. White people are the only legitimate Americans. Everyone else is a Jew's leftover burden (black slaves), invader or Mongolian hunter-gatherers who should have been kicked the fuck out or killed in the 1800's.
