On his blog, est electronixtar posted his recent discovery of the Chinese authority’s control over electronic readings.
est’s roommate had a strange experience while reading a chm-formatted novel on his computer. In the novel, there was a line of words with the phrase “真他妈的” (which roughly means the same as “dammit” in English) in the end. The magic happened a few seconds after he first read this line as the phrase suddenly changed to”真他**” with “xx” replacing the curse word on the screen.
“never thought that river crabs are also crawling all over local hard disks… keyword filtering now is also in chm e-books. Imagine that when you read novels, big brother is also watching you… In Soviet China, novels read YOU!”
