The operators of “World of Warcraft” in China have replaced skeletons with healthy human bodies in the local version of the online game. This is due to a recent government campaign to clean up Internet content. The PRC gov’t says this supposedly promotes a ‘healthy online culture” to protect the government’s stability.
WTF? Hacking and slashing players and other monsters is OK, but rendering some skeletons on screen is bad? Sheesh!
