It is just a “publicity stunt,” according to Global Times interviews with “Father of the Great Firewall” Fang Binxing and Shanghai Jiaotong University professor Wei Wuhui, but Weibo users, while mocking the position, are certain it is for real:

那个野和尚: Thanks to the government for giving me the chance to rehabilitate myself!!! By the way, I have years of work experience!

感谢政府给我重新做人的机会!!!顺便说一声,我有多年的从业经验!

郭国松: When I was a reporter, someone from the Public Security Bureau told me that the person there in charge of pornography identification was an old police officer. His job was to watch and evaluate pornographic video CDs. He said that none of the young people was willing to take the job, ‘cause they would soon be used up.

以前我当记者时,有个公安局的人跟我说,局里负责色情光碟鉴定的是一个老警察,他每天的工作就是看各种与色情有关的光碟,然后给出鉴定结论。他说年轻人都不愿意干,干一段时间人就废了。

夏天戴口罩02: Cutting off sexual desire, as hateful as Fang Bingxing.

隔断性趣,和方滨兴一样可恶。

李普曼: How come there is no tissue paper allowance? It’s not included in the benefits either. Too inhumane. I won’t go.

竟然没有纸巾补贴。福利中也不包括这一项。公司管理太不人性化了。不去。

单身的牛大叔:The salary is enticing, but I’m afraid I would’t be able to endure the substance of the position…

薪酬诱人,内容就怕自己吃不消啊……

Anquan was launched in 2010 by Baidu, China’s number-one search engine. Tencent, Sogou, and other major players on the Chinese Internet are members of Anquan.
