Censorship To The People!

from the report-on-everyone-else dept

Just as Vietnam has been forcing internet cafes to register their users and report the uploading or downloading of "bad information", China has apparently realized that they can't censor the internet effectively on their own. So, they've now created a nice little site where anyone can be a good citizen and report on their neighbors for being bad information purveyors online. It's unclear if there's any sort of "reward" for being so forthcoming, but how long will it be until people start reporting the government's own websites and other such information as being questionable?

    Ok, how exactly is any of this stuff different from TIPS? Deluded, much?
