Last week, we noted that China had come out with new official rules for online news sites, saying that they could only report on news that was socially beneficial. It appears they're going beyond just news sites to personal communications as well, saying that mobile operators needs to start blocking socially "unhealthy" text messages. Apparently, these text messages have "polluted society and spread very bad influence." Sense a pattern here?
