Danwei: University BBS Explodes With Snark

From Danwei, a summary of students’ online reactions to the new restrictions placed on university BBS sites:

Other, cheekier students on the in question – “Shui-Mu Qinghua,” abbreviated, in accordance with the heretical non-Pinyin romanization of the university’s name as ‘Tsinghua,’ as “” – have taken to using Chairman Mao quotations to title their posts. Some of the quotes are topical: one angry student put up a post, with the title “Chairman Mao Said it Himself!,” reminding other students of the well-known phrase “It is right to rebel.” Other posts’ title-content relationships are less clear; one post entitled “Serve the People With All Your Heart and Soul” is nothing more than a question about dry-cleaning.
