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

28 April 2013
 

Few born before this century doesn't know a sweet little girl who sang "What a Beautiful Jasmine Flower" at Beijing 2008 Olympics Preview in Athens?

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 the "freedom of expression".

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 of expression" 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 offensive messages.

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.”
