Sensitive Words: Chen Guangcheng and More

As of May 4, the following search terms are blocked on Weibo (not including the “search for user” function):Nicknames for : Sunglasses Brother, Glasses Brother
陈光诚别称:墨镜哥,眼镜哥

Other: US + petition office, + petition office (Netizens have taken to calling the US embassy China’s “Supreme Petition Office” and its “director.” More from CDT Chinese.)
“拿美帝工资的中国信访办主任”:美国+信访办,骆家辉+信访办

Related to the Anniversary of Tiananmen: May Fourth + one month (Youth Day is exactly one month before June 4, the day the Tiananmen Massacre began), nine eight, eight nine (the latter two using the characters for writing numbers on checks)
六四纪念日相关:五四+一个月(五四青年节离六四正好一个月,因此有网友用词作为暗语),玖捌,捌玖

For other censored terms related to Chen Guangcheng, see our posts from April 27-28, May 2, and May 3.

Note: All Chinese-language words are tested using simplified characters. The same terms in traditional characters occasionally return different results.

CDT Chinese runs a project that crowd-sources filtered keywords on Sina Weibo search. CDT independently tests the keywords before posting them, but some searches later become accessible again. We welcome readers to contribute to this project so that we can include the most up-to-date information.
