According to the website, Sina Weibo (for those living under the rock, this is a Chinese microblogging service that has been talked about on the Verge numerous times) shut down the comment function from 8am 31 Mar to 8am 3 Apr. The reason behind it is claimed to be cleaning up "harmful" comments throughout the entire system, which means if you've said anything the "Big Brother" doesn't like, it's as if it's never said. Isn't that just neat! Thoughts?
