You’re not self censoring enough

The Chinese government has read the riot act to the search engines, again.  At least in public they seem to be keeping quiet about the political angle, concentrating on decency instead.  “The search engines know what they should do” said the official…

It’s interesting that this news story is appearing on a Chinese website (even if it is in English)  and it purports to be from the Shanghai Daily.  The tone of the article, although not full of the Western denunciations of censorship, is still interesting for the fact that censorship is mentioned.
