It is alleged that the employees accepted money in exchange for removing negative feedback left on Baidu's forum service. The company had already fired four people for misconduct before three of them were arrested. This so-called 'post-deleting' business is believed to be big in China, even though it is illegal."

      "Hired"... nice euphemism

  • So the Government can confiscate & delete but not the people, nooooww I get it...
    • It is about bribery. When the government gets bribery, it is called lobbying. But if people bribe each other, they would forget to bribe the government. By the definition of "confiscate ", yes, only the government can do it.
  • Except when the government is doing it.

  • ..well, a repost of my earlier first post.
    Someone took it down.

The first version always gets thrown away.
