The Sydney Morning Herald just reported that the whole Chinabounder blog seems to be a hoax! The blog was set up by performance artists, both men and women, from Britain, Australia, Japan and China. They ‘fabricated its content as an investigation into online vigilante behavior.’ If this is true they did a good job!
The SMH sent an email to the email address on Chinabounders blog, and got a reply from the group. The group claims that the blog was closed out of safety concern for the group’s Chinese members and expats in Shanghai.
