Censorship

+ - Chinese Censors are Being Watched-> 1

Submitted by Rambo Tribble
Rambo Tribble (1273454) writes "The Economist is reporting, (registration may be required), on two research teams, one at Harvard and another at the University of Hong Kong, who have developed software to detect what posts to Chinese social media get censored. One surprise, comments critical of the regime are much less likely to be suppressed than calls to action, like assemblies or protests. Chinese censors may soon have to deal with an unprecedented transparency of their actions."
