滤霸 (lǜ bà): filter tyrant

Satirical name for its Chinese homophone, Green Dam. Green Dam Youth Escort software (绿坝·花季护航) was developed under the direction of the Chinese government to filter internet content on individual computers. Pre-installation of Green Dam software was originally intended for all new computers; however, because the proposed policy proved deeply unpopular, mandatory pre-installation has been delayed to an undetermined date.

驴爸 (lǘ bà) donkey father Sounds nearly the same in Chinese as Green Dam.
