China orders telcos to purge "unhealthy" SMSes as Nero fiddles

china propaganda poster

Ah, China, that perennial lover of free press, open social dialogue, and right of peaceful assembly have now shocked the world by ordering telcos to purge the "dirt hidden in the telecommunication networks" including SMSes containing smut, "superstitious content" and other "unhealthy" influences which are polluting society. Perhaps the Ministry of Information Industry just made a typo, certainly this just can't be true.
