Won't someone think of the kids? China's Cyberspace Admin steps up, orders massive cleanup to make the net safe for minors

The internet as we know it

So basically China is going to completely rebuild the internet!

Without any ...

> Live-streamed kids

There goes children's TV

> commenting facilities that turn toxic;

and all of social media.

> Animated video nasties featuring crime, bloody violence, or other negative stereotypes

and virtually all video games (or at least the popular western ones)

> sexting

and pr0n

> encourages conspicuous consumption;

and online shopping

> permit or foster bullying or trolling

plus any other social media that the earlier diktat missed.

But on the bright side:

> the CAC has encouraged local web operators to create a healthy, civilized online space that leaves Chinese youth less likely to experience mental health problems.

Which might make losing all the rest not so bad.
