Xinran: The Chinese chatroom

In the Guardian, Xinran writes:

The Chinese chatroom I visited,, was already full of “Wang-Min”- internet obsessives – fighting over the issue of “how to view love affairs”. I immediately regretted that I had not visited the site earlier. It is a really good place to find “freedom of the press” from Chinese women: their words are so sharp they could cut your mind.
