When everyone is a censor, is anything censored?

Or is everyone just censoring one thing, like your pal is the guy that does the Muslim concentration camps, while your sister gets all the Tiananmen Square talk, and you’re Tim Apple and in charge of censoring Taiwan flags and AirPower

"…it markets itself as an outsource censorship provider who combine AI and a vast army of human censors to detect and block attempts to circumvent censorship through irony, memes, and metaphors.

Well then. Since the censorship is so… granular, troublemakers should just skip being cute in their attempts and go all in: “Xi Jinping Is a spotty-assed needle-dick flea-fucker.”

May as well have fun while you’re being censored.

Let’s hope People.cn have learned from the Google and Facebook experiences and avoid some of that burnout and PTSD we hear about.

Censoring is hard, stressful, work
