ESWN gives us some more insight on the current flap in virtual China. The Chinese chapter of a society for crushing small animals and taking photos of them tried to sell some pix of the damage a high spiked heel can do to a kitten. Chinese Internet users apparently collectively tracked down the photographer, the seller, and the woman too.
A netizen went around showing the photograph to Hangzhou professional tourist guides but was told that this could not be Hangzhou because all local towers are Chinese-style pagodas whereas the tower in the background was an European-style tower. That was a dead-end. But with enough people around the country, someone tracked it down to a park in Heilongjiang province and even provided photographic evidence.
Mob justice so far: they’ve published the photographer’s name, gender, company, department, office location, job title, CCP membership, citizen ID number, line phone number, mobile phone number, email address, QQ ID’s.
