The Chinese bloggers strike back


Please never underestimate the bloggers. China’s bloggers—33.4 million strong at last count —can be an unforgiving bunch when something displeases them. They took on a major tech company—and won!

In recent weeks a Western English teacher in Shanghai whose blog, Chinabounder, described his sexual conquests of Chinese women drew the venom of netizens and prompted a frenzy of nationalist outrage, including castration threats and calls by a Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences professor to find the “foreign hooligan” and “kick him out of China.” (Chinabounder is now closed to the public).
