China is on the headlines once again because of the recent strict rules and regulations made by the authorities regarding the Internet world to control it. This time, the rule says that the one who is using Internet has to show his/her real identity as of name and then he/she would be allowed to make any comment online. This news has been confirmed by State Media just this Wednesday.
And moreover, according to the China Daily, this rule spared none as even the ones who are on this rule and are looking and have a sharp eye on the comments done online or any posting, they too had to do registration with their real names.
Regarding the same case, the head of the State Council Information Office, Wang Chen said that, "We are also exploring an identity authentication system for users of online bulletin board systems.”
But one thing that’s kept secret regarding this new rule is that they didn’t exposed the actual time/day of the introduction of the new system fully including the things about how actually it would be effecting and working and this secret is kept by the vice head of the ruling Communist Party's propaganda department who is Wang himself.
At the moment, before posting any kind of comment or anything, there are some important news portals that the users have to see before starting on the posting. Some anonymous comments were banned too but as the rule/system of proving real name before posting is not introduced yet, so it is not required to show their real names to the websites in the first place.
This matter is not that brand new in China and the reason behind it is that the same was discussed several years back too when another matter was going on regarding the impact on freedom of speech and privacy and because of the long duration, people are getting irritated and in result the debate has now become a real ferocious one.
The most surprising thing to hear is the population in China which is counted as online users according to the reports shown by officials. The data mentions that the counting has now gone up-to 404 million and even before reaching this no., it was already the largest in the world.
Beijing has been operating systems that are real large in extent for the process of getting Internet as high as they can. They even dubbed the "Great Firewall of China" just for the purpose of sweeping off all kind of information that’s taken as harmful or may be sensitive as of politically.
The Internet Users of China has been using Internet as forum just as a help for the people of the country to come up forward and express themselves about their views and opinions even if it’s a kind of Anti-Government and moreover in b/w such strict control over media by the government.
The operators of Mobile phone and Internet had been finger pointed by China for spreading the information of secret law of state just last Thursday so as to burry the controversy of it and to tighten up the pressure.
As of the reports by the Government of China, the condition of agreement has been laid by the law (being used since a long time from past) that has been taken as an advantage for getting the high-profile people into custody and even jail in some cases and the condition is that the demands and orders of police is must to be cooperated by the Mobile phone and Internet operators and its been considered as legal claim.

|The EU and the US wish they could do the same|
|You know, I kind of like this. I mean honestly, if people were forced to show who they really are online, it would stop 80% of the bullshit you see on a day to day bases. Imagine a internet with no more nerdrage, or fighting over who's the [or got] the biggest epeen.|
