墙国论坛 (qiáng guó lùn tán): wall nation forum

This sounds the same in Chinese as the “Strong Nation Forum” (强国论坛) which is a Chinese bulletin board on the website of the People’s Daily, the main state-run newspaper. While there is some free discussion allowed on the “Strong Nation Forum,” entries are often deleted and netizens suspect there are many members of the 50 cent party who are paid contributors to the site.

The sarcastic term "wall nation forum" is sometimes used to mock people who post nationalistic comments. For example, a netizen might write, "This is no place for you; you should take your comments to the wall nation forum."

"Wall" is a reference to the Great Firewall of China.
