^^hiding their IP won't help; their account will just be banned. Guess that site doesn't have any mods (or just ones that only censor political posts
I think you just too much think it's a forum like MTF, if it was, the guy would have been identified and nobody would have heard of that story as the police have tried to identify him for 10 days.
Besides, as you know, the Chinese internet is much more controlled than anywhere else. Of course there are mods and the original posts were destroyed but the guy was not identified, which shows that he made something special to avoid being.
Then no it's not a case like somebody doing those crazy things on MTF.
Fed's reaction by the way :
in the same article, the police confirm that they will still put him under heavy protection.
