Don’t post those full frontal shots

China continues its eradication program of the internet:

News from the Ministry of Public Security is that 13 Chinese ministries have been taking a joint action since last month to regulate online order, with the emphasis being given to the cleaning out of such content as candid snapshots, nude pictures and “unhealthy” adult literature.

During the campaign, the Chinese ministries will focus on cracking down on four kinds of illegal behavior, including spreading abundant erotic information to make profit by taking advantage of Internet and mobile phones; launching bawdry websites in a foreign country to spread unhealthy content to and develop members in China; organizing obscene online performances or prostitution-related activities; and committing such crimes as online fraud, theft, gambling and sale of forbidden goods.

Aside from spending an incredible amount of time trying to filter “subversive” material online, the regime also has a few pollution problems.
