China takes more steps to censor .cn domain

forbidden city
China has been cracking down on pornographic and other illicit content on its .cn domain lately, but now the country has taken things one step further. The government has hired some 600 temporary workers to manually check all 14 million names on the extension for pornography and inaccurate registration records.

How long will this take? Not as long as you might think. Assuming each check takes 5 minutes, the process will take 1,944 hours, or 81 days of non-stop checks. This means that unless illegal content is hidden well, expect .cn to soon be the cleanest ccTLD out there. China had previously relied on volunteers to report pornographic content.
