I don't know... we've never had a Chinese member before, so far as I can tell.

I am designing some "stuff", and was interested how the censoring thing worked. I may research it more. I know TOR is an option, but if the standard internet has censored TOR, the fuck are you supposed to do?

Too many vodka spammers. Those random threads you see regularly in Cyrillic with a bunch of URLs embedded? Yeah, spend a lot of my time cleaning up those.

Might be able to auto-restrict people who use Cyrillic characters in their messages? There's not really a lot of people posting in russian here :)
