Hundreds Banned from Hong Kong Website

HKGolden, a forum of great cultural and political influence in Hong Kong recently has banned more than 300 user accounts. While the website administrator explained that the move was in reaction to defamatory charge, some believe that it is a political purge as many of removed account users like to spread anti-communist and pro-Hong Kong independence comments in the forum. Badcanto has translated some commentaries on the incident.
