Former chief of Microsoft China and Google China defends
Cyber Bullying and Sexual Harassment against Children

Flower" at Beijing

Nine years later, Zhang Miaoke has grown up and become a
14-year old happy young lady. One day Miaoke visited a restaurant
and ordered hand-pulled noodle dish. Amazed by the remarkable
noodle-pulling art, she asked the noodle-maker to teach
her some tricks. Later, she posted her noodle-pulling photo
on weibo, yet this light-hearted post attracted a large quantity
of verbal abuse and sexual harassment from some sexually
depressed and mentally distorted male cyber users.
She was very upset and plead the administration of the social
network to do something for a healthier online environment.
She received no response from the administration but a harsh
scold from a middle-aged male cyber user called Kai-fu Lee
who labeled the young lady as a dictator trying to suppress
Lee used to be a Taiwan-born-American (his current nationality
is unknown), once headed Microsoft China and Google China
and presently lives in Beijing and operates a dodge IT company
(we say "dodge" because a lot of people have raised
a lot of questions about the true nature of his business).
In fact, Kai-fu Lee has always been a controversial figure
in China. When he jumped from Microsoft to Google, he was
accused by his former employer of failing to fulfil the contract;
when he published his autobiography, he was accused by some
well-informed fellows of fabricating his academic credentials
and personal stories. When grilled by the public, he was
forced to admit that he was not an associated professor at
the age of 26 and he was never studied with US President
Barack Obama at the college as he claimed in his book.
Supposedly to betray and to lie have already become his
second nature therefore Kai-fu Lee can be extremely flexible
with truth and feels no trouble at twisting the concept of "freedom
into something that could be loosely interpreted as "freedom
of cyber bullying and sexually harassment and child molestation."C

A news for Kai-fu Lee, former chief of Microsoft China and
Google China: Cyber bullying and underage sexual harassment could
face jail time
China's cyber community
strongly condemns Kai-fu Lee's shameless defence of
online sexual assessment against 14-year old Lin Miaoke.
We can hardly understand what's in Lee's dirty mind,
since he also has two young daughters himself.
"Online bullies could face up to three years in prison
under proposed new cyber laws," reported Radio New Zealand.
The laws will also make it a crime for anyone who sends or post
Here is further information for Kai-fu Lee:
Some Laws against cyberstalking and cyberbullying are enacted
in the United States. For example, the Arkansas law contains
a section titled “Unlawful computerized communications” that
makes it a crime to send a message via email or other computerized
communication system that uses obscene, lewd, or profane language,
with the intent to frighten, intimidate, threaten, abuse, or
harass another person.
In April 2009, the Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act
(H.R. 1966) was introduced in the U.S. Congress. The act would
make it a federal crime to “intimidate, harass, or cause substantial
emotional distress to another person, using electronic means
to support severe, repeated and hostile behaviour.”
