Gōngfu Wǎng 功夫网

The Android robot eats the Kung Fu Net. (网易应用中心)
The pinyin abbreviation for “Kung Fu Net” (gōngfu wǎng) is GFW—the same abbreviation used for the “Great Firewall of China.” Thus the Kung Fu Net is the Internet Chinese users have access to under the restraints implemented by the Chinese government.

Example:

潘石屹: I may be meeting with an Internet management official. Do my friends on Weibo have any suggestions for me to pass on?
最近,我可能会见到一位管理互联网的领导,微博上朋友们有什么建议要转告?
Leo_Wang_: Please shut down the Kung Fu Net. (May 13, 2013)
请关掉功夫网 [Chinese]
