Chinese Government's "purification of the internet"

Government's primary targets in 'internet purification' remain pornography and gambling

The Chinese government used an announcement of Internet pornography prosecution statistics this week as a further opportunity to caution that online pornography, gambling and "...other sites deemed harmful to society" remained its primary targets in the "purification of the Internet."

Associated Press reports that Beijing's pervasive policing of cyberspace and attempts to block the Internet are already among the world's most stringent.

The Ministry of Public Security said this week the "purification of the Internet" and fighting of online crime are closely tied to the country's stability.

A Ministry spokesman said future efforts would focus on China-based operators of overseas-registered Web sites and companies that provide Internet services, or register domain names, or rent virtual space with 'undesirable' content. The ministry also offered rewards to members of the public who provide useful information in policing efforts.

Critics of the often draconian enforcement tactics adopted by the Chinese say that these often act as a cover for detecting and blocking sensitive political content. Its restrictions of the Internet have been referred to as the "Great Firewall of China."

Many foreign sites have been blocked by China's Internet authorities, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other media and news Web sites.

Last year, China backed down from a requirement for all new computers to be loaded with a controversial Internet-filtering software known as Green Dam Youth Escort after a major outcry from Chinese citizens and computer companies. Ostensibly, that software had been introduced as a filter against porn.

    "I just started using bitcoin myself. I buy bitcoin using my checking account thru Coinbase. It takes a little longer than using a debit/credit card but if I understand it correctly the fees are lower that way. Then I transfer bitcoin to my wallet at Blockchain before depositing at an online casino. I made two deposits at Slotastic! and one at Slotocash and each time the money was there immediately. The only problem I had was on my first deposit I did not account for the conversion difference when making a minimum amount deposit and my bonus did not get triggered automatically. I got it soon worked out though when I contacted support thru Live Chat and explained the mistake was caused by my first time using bitcoin. They credited my account with the bonus and just suggested I add a little more next time to cover the additional fees and conversion rate differences. I didn't do too good at Slotocash but did much better at Slotastic! and even though I made my deposit using bitcoin there was a message on the Withdraw screen saying I had to send in their Credit Card Authorization Agreement before I could make a withdrawal. I contacted Live Support to clarify and they advised I only had to send in a copy of my drivers license and a recent utility bill to verify my identity not my credit card. After I emailed these documents I received an email the next day advising my documents had been received and approved. I then submitted my withdrawal request and expected an immediate response just like I got on my deposit but it didn't happen. That's been about 7 hours ago now so I'm guessing it might be a day or two at least if I'm lucky before anything happens. But if it happens then that'll be much better than having to wait weeks or months like some have to. I'll update later when the withdrawal is finally completed."
