China’s Top University Looking To Ban Students From On-line Cursing

From Xinhua:

China’s prestigious Beijing University is considering a rule to get its students to mind their manners with a proposal to ban cursing and rumor-mongering on the Internet.

The university, concerned about abusive comments and rumors on Internet forums, is considering amending its “Student Rules,” which students in the university are supposed to take as moral guidance and abide by, President Xu Zhihong has told the Beijing Morning Post.

The school, however, has yet to decide what penalties would be incurred as the ordinance is still under deliberation, said a university spokesman.
