“Sapio adds that rather than risk social instability, the party prefers to hand over to the courts only a small percentage of party members who have received party sanctions.

“But on Sina Corp. ’s Weibo microblog Wednesday, others showed there is room for quite a bit of give and take on the issue in China. One user, Dao-Chu-Pao, quipped, “I sincerely ask [the People’s Daily] about their Appstore porn search methods! It’s too hard to find! How did the People’s Daily find it?”
