50,000 agents are not enough to control: Internet censorship tightened in China

So it is true. Microsoft joins Yahoo and Google in censoring their webpage. Apparently, 50,000 agents scouting Chinese websites and chatrooms are not enough for the Chinese government - they need to have the individual companies committed to exclude words, such as democracy or Taiwan independence from their search engines. Well, apparently, it is not enough to also have agents send SMS to those that appear to protest against something, anything.

I wrote earlier about the real extend of China's web control, but this appears to get worse. Is it time for another Internet villain award for the country?
