Starting March 1, China will ban internet accounts that impersonate people or organizations, and enforce the requirement that people use real names when registering accounts online, its internet watchdog, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), said on Wednesday.

The new regulations are part of efforts to impose real-name registration requirements on internet users and halt the spread of rumors online, the CAC said. Internet companies will have the responsibility to enforce the rules.

On Tuesday, the CAC accused NetEase Inc, a U.S.-listed Chinese web portal, of spreading rumors and pornography. And last month, 133 WeChat accounts were shut down for "distorting history", state media reported.

    Yeah, well... there's still that "pornography" word.
    Mmmm... makes me wonder... does the US political life make a claim it? (methinks it would be a valid claim: biggest orgy - a small number of people f**k the rest of the 1/3 billion population, with impunity. NSA anyone?)
