Q: How many countries will follow this path of internet censure?

https://www.vox.com/world/2017/8/2/16019562/china-internet-freedom-dissent-twitter-facebook

 

So you don't like what people are saying.

 

In politics we call it "flooding the zone", other distractions and positive comments to flood the dissenters into a minority of posts by volume coming from a few people.

 

Environmental and animal rights groups have done this for years, fake petitions, fake names, a fax machine or computer and flood the media outlets with your agenda and make it look like majority thinking and the lazy journalists run with it rather than check the numbers.

 

do we need to fill Chinese websites with American wumao's and return the favor. Nobody has a monopoly if it works, soon, everybody will do the same thing.

 

Careful what you think is clever, it usually bites you in the ass eventually.

Russia has PR people working social media also but they don't "flood the zone" it's much more specific in agendas. Russia may have actually helped China come up with their plans or China copied them, this happen 2 years ago in Russia.

China's 19th National Congress of the Communist Party - the quinquennial confab where the party selects new members of the Politburo, its ruling council - is expected to begin this fall (official dates have not yet been publicly announced). And in an effort to guarantee that the leadership reshuffle goes off without a hitch, President Xi Jinping is tightening the government’s grip on the internet to help protect the official narrative that Xi's "Chinese Dream" remains intact.

According to Reuters, China held a drill on Thursday with internet service providers to practice taking down websites deemed harmful.

  

“Internet data centers (IDC) and cloud companies - which host website servers - were ordered to participate in a three-hour drill to hone their "emergency response" skills, according to at least four participants that included the operator of Microsoft's cloud service in China.

 

China's Ministry of Public Security called for the drill "in order to step up online security for the 19th Party Congress and tackle the problem of smaller websites illegally disseminating harmful information", according to a document circulating online attributed to a cyber police unit in Guangzhou.”

The Communist Party “protects” China’s 1.4 billion citizens from the influence of subversive foreign using nationwide system of internet censorship known as the “Great Firewall.” But as the country’s financial regulators grow increasingly concerned about the country’s dangerously overleveraged economy, which is threatening to sink the country’s fragile stock market, it’s likely that the government sees local business media as a threat. Two years ago, following the spectacular runup and collapse of the Shanghai Composite, authorities arrested one of China’s most respected financial journalist and forced him to make an on air “apology” after the government blamed his reporting for triggering the crash.

FrostWire works different/better in EU than in China. I am not sure is it better broadband or no peers block in EU.
