I saw a film with a young Shanghai millennial, being asked about what she thought of the internet censorship, she laughed and said they find ways around it.

Wonder how China's A.I. will handle life, let's face it, China tries to make up reality as it lives through reality.

A walled garden for life.

However, A.I. can't be machine learning nor actual A.I. because those kinda rules, would cause some very very interesting outcomes, basically, when we get skynet and terminators, you can thank china, as ziggy says there is a 47% chance china's ban on the letter " n " causes the end of humanity as we know it...

You've been n'd

They thought they were banning the letter 'Z," which means "he lives" in Greek.

China often bans a lot of things that they believe disparage the leader. Just the other day, China blocked and banned images and references to "Winnie the Pooh" because people were comparing Xi Jinping to that character.

If you were to be in China and had a Tee-Shirt with a meme about Xi Jinping, you would jailed and likely tortured if Chinese, if you were a tourist perhaps just deported but no guarantees.

Anything that makes fun of the Chinese communist party leaders or can be used in a disparaging way is met with rather violent response. This is how China's communist regime is a lot like the idiot in North Korea. Very petty and like little children with no virtues of any kind except all the ones undesirable in a civilized world. This world isn't it.

Do they make up funny names for people they don't like too?

Nobody knows quite why...



The Chinese government issued a ban on the letter after people were using it in online posts to criticize current president Xi Jinping’s plans to rule the country indefinitely, reports Business Insider. In China, the letter N is used to represent unknown numerical values in math formulas (as the letter X is used in the States).

The government issued the temporary online ban on the letter after posts began appearing in joke equations that claimed to mathematically describe the president’s length of rule (such as “N = infinity”). The ban apparently lasted only a day, however, as by Tuesday morning, Chinese users found they could use the letter in online posts and text messages once again.

China banned the letter “N” from the internet

China temporarily banned the letter N from being published online after people started using it to criticize a plan which paves the way for Xi Jinping to rule the country indefinitely. The Chinese Communist Party on Sunday proposed to abolish the two-term term limit for the president and vice-president, sparking an online backlash which it has been trying to control.

Critics flooded Weibo and WeChat — China's version of Twitter and WhatsApp — to protest the plan, but were swiftly met by the country's censors. Various Chinese characters for terms like "emigrate," "lifelong," and "I disagree" were banned, alongside ... the letter N.

The screenshot underneath shows a user on Sunday attempting to type "N" into Weibo, and receiving an error message that the "content is illegal." The other words that appeared to be banned in the screenshot are: "Xi JinP," "emigrate," and "indefinite control."

Hey Chia! You can't have FUN without the letter "N"!

But I can!!

N doesn't mean anything in particular in Mandarin or Cantonese.

The article conjectures that it was based on N being number of terms limited to 2. Probably accurate and it was temporary but still fu__y.

Yes in China they hate when you compare his worship, Xi Da Da to Winnie the Pooh but the resemblance is there.

Yeah, but that part isn't as childlike as torturing someone with genital electrocution and sodomizing those who made fun of THEM, which is exactly what happens in China for making fun of the leader.

I saw what you did there, but it's a red herring compared to what actually defines "childlike" when people don't get their way like Xi Jingping, or Kim Un. Are you following along now?


Here this might help. Making fun of people as adults is usually done in jest and having fun. The child like part is how you respond to it. Do you respond as an adult and laugh with them, or do you torture and imprison them? That is the childlike part I mentioned. Does that help you?

There's a news story that the Chinese government recently banned the letter 'N' when used alone. Nobody knows quite why it was banned and there's speculation that it might refer to a date or time period:



Man, I was hoping it would be for all situations so I could say ch-ch-ch-Chia!

Lol why no one read article. It plain there already. Bao Xin Jiu Huo...


Less clear is why censors took issue with the letter ‘N’. Mair speculated it was “probably out of fear on the part of the government that ‘N’ = ‘n terms in office’, where possibly n > 2”.

Charlie Smith, the alias of the co-founder of GreatFire.org, a group which helps users track and bypass Chinese censorship, said he found that explanation plausible.

“[Censors] probably determined it was sensitive and then moved to add that content to the blacklist so others would not be able to post something similar,” he said, noting that the seditious symbol had now been emancipated.

This couldn't get any more daft than it is.

China bands the letter N. It's laughable.

China is now Chia

Xi Jinping is now Xi Ji*pi*g, Suits him tho.


The Chinese government has banned the letter 'N' and George Orwell's Animal Farm and 1984 in a major online censorship clampdown. Experts believe the crackdown is part of leader Xi Jinping's plans to become a dictator for life. The move has been met with criticism from around the world.

Never mind what it's gonna do to their newspapers internationally. If it's illegal to use the letter N how are they going to address Do*ald Trump, or Puti*, or Quee Elizabeth? Idiots.
