So let’s say your country has a huge natural disaster, like an earthquake, that kills thousands and thousands of your citizens. Your fairly repressive government mandates a three-day mourning period, which includes a few hours of your favorite games being offline. Do you:

A) Contemplate life and realize you’re lucky to be alive?

B) Quietly find something else to do during the brief time you’re away from your MMORPG?

C) Make a video on YouTube mocking the dead, including phrases like, “How many of you died? It was just a few. China has so many people, anyway.”

If you answered “C”, then the Chinese police might arrest you, because they can. Just a note.
