New Series: The River Crab Archive
When something disappears from the Internet in China, netizens joke that it has been “river-crabbed,” a play on “harmonized.” The River Crab Archive is a collection of blog post titles, weibo, and other materials deleted from their original sources on Chinese websites, either found by CDT or brought to our attention by outside projects. The editors have selected river-crabbed information of note from CDT Chinese’s ongoing compendium of the same name (河蟹档案).
The following deleted Weibo posts were selected by CDT between February 21 and 22 from FreeWeibo.

@AngrySillyBroLaughstoTears: In reality, Chief Xi has inherited an “unfinished project”: circling enemies, proliferating traitors, economic bubble, empty national coffers, depraved morality, and prevalent corruption. This bowl of rotten “reform and opening up half-cooked rice” is set in front of Chief Xi. How to act? How to eat it? It will take not only wisdom and competence, but, more importantly, the charisma to make resolute decisions. Though it’s a tangled web, the two most urgent things to tackle are reversing wronged cases and rooting out traitors! These two actions will have an immediate impact of twice the work it takes to accomplish them! The general public is expecting results!

@lscfda: Mao is said to have had six dancing partners who were the most beautiful: Wu Lili, He Liliang, Liu Suyuan, Meng Jingyun, Zuo Dafen, and Chen Huimin. At that time, the PLA Air Force Political Department Ensemble internally called dancing in Zhongnanhai a “number one duty.” Before she was allowed to enter Zhongnanhai, each person’s family background and typical behavior were scrutinized. Peng Dehuai ridiculed the event as “selecting imperial concubines.” Before the dance, several GMs would be sent out to pick up the actresses from the Ensemble. The dances were usually held at Chun’ouzhai and Huairentang.

@OilfieldXuGuanghui: People’s Daily Online, Beijing, February 21: Wang Yukai, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance, says that in order to change the imperfect national system of financial disclosure, reporting must start with top officials. At present, there are no technical issues with the system. The main problem is the lack of determination to start from the top and firmly implement the policies within certain parameters. Only when it starts from the top will reforms truly follow.
@油田徐广慧： 人民网北京2月21日电 国家行政学院教授汪玉凯表示，要改变我国财产公开制度不完善这种现状，官员财产申报制必须从最高层开始，目前我国的官员财产申报公开制不是技术问题，最大的问题是要有决心，从高层开 始，把它限制在一定的范围之内并严格执行实施。只有从高层开始，才能够真正带动其他方面的改革
