Q: Does echina cities remove questions and comments?

So i've logged a few times over the  past few days. I noticed sometimes i look at answers section, and there are a lot of comments and questions in the thread.  Then next time i look, the  comments are gone, only to  re-appear again later. And, now they are all gone again. 

why oh why Laughing out loud

Something is definitely wrong with the website ... as comments aren't displayed as they were entered. Have a look at the time stamp of comments ..

 

Other thing Phil was saying a week or so ago ... He claimed they were two websites ... one for in-China and other out-of-China.

I think, that also has to do with website's display.

 

 I don't see too many spammers around ... 2 or 3 per week on average ...They don't come around daily as it use to be.

It must be the virus .. 

 

There aren't too many deletes 'cause of the TOU ..., UserMod told me.

Maybe 1 in two weeks time ...

 

So, going back to the OP's Q ... there were no deletes by UserMod recently.

It is definitely display of the website ...

it is part of the mystery and wonder that is China. Magical fairy dust is sprinkled on the site to make it what is it.

maybe your eyes are censoring you in case you see something that might upset you.

feelings are hurt easily so maybe it is best comments are removed before you see them

 

they are possibly also 'harmonised' - again to protect the sensitive,

 

just be glad that someone is working on your behalf to make the world a better place

With VeepeeN I get a completely different list of questions and answers than just by logging in. And my points are about half with out using the veep.

I no longer jog in without the veep so I can keep track of the conversations. But as you say, the magical unicorn dust can make anything possible on this site. It doesn't matter.

As we said, not eChina ... butT ... you should still exercise extreme caution ... while writing online:

China Has Jailed Hundreds Of People For Questioning Official COVID-19 Narrative, Report

 

China has arrested and imprisoned hundreds of people for merely discussing the coronavirus outbreak in any context that strays from the communist party narrative on the epidemic, according to a report from a US based Chinese organisation.

Fox News pointed to the report by China Digital Times containing statistics that show between Jan. 1 and April 4, nearly 500 people were arrested and charged, merely for talking about the virus.

 

The indiscretions levelled at those jailed include criticism of the response to the outbreak by the Chinese government, and questioning the number of deaths.

In some cases, people were arrested for pointing out that the seven funeral homes in Wuhan were overwhelmingly busy.

Others were targeted by the CCP for “referring to someone who has already been censored or arrested.”

In one instance, lawyer Zhang Xuezhong was arrested for suggesting that “the government’s long-term tight control over society and people has almost completely destroyed the organization and self-help capabilities of Chinese society.”

Xuezhong was detained after he wrote that “The best way to fight for freedom of expression is for everyone to speak as if we already have freedom of speech,” in a WeChat post that was seen by the authorities.

The South China Morning Post has since reported that Xuezhong was released after “questioning”, and hasn’t responded to requests for comment about his arrest.

 

The censorship report also notes how doctors trying to warn the rest of the world about the severity of the outbreak were silenced.

Fox News notes that Dr. Li Wenliang, a 34-year-old ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital in China’s Hubei Province was “reprimanded by authorities for trying to warn others about the disease in late December.”

“Li was “summoned” by police and forced to sign a letter stating that he made false comments about the virus. His ironic death from the virus at a hospital in Wuhan – where he treated patients and likely contracted the virus – renewed longstanding anger about the communist party’s alleged lies and suppression of information in the country,” the report states.

As we have previously noted, many doctors and researchers were silenced early on during the outbreak by the communist state.

Their warnings could have spared 95% of the globe from the consequences of the virus, according to research.

The censorship report from China Digital Times also notes that “Even entertainment shows that have nothing to do with politics are being rigorously scrutinized and censored for political content.”

While the west is yet to go so far as imprisonment for those questioning the coronavirus fallout, Big tech is actively silencing any dissenting voices on the matter, claiming that questions and theorising on the origins of the outbreak, the motives behind the responses of our governments, and the true scale of the pandemic are all potentially “harmful.”

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
