Beijing police have detained three people working at Baidu Inc, the leading Chinese language Internet search provider, over allegations that they abused their positions and deleted forum posts in return for money.

The company confirmed that it had sacked the accused employees, along with a fourth person, who has not been included in the police investigation.

Baidu's professional ethics committee sent an e-mail to more than 16,000 staff members on Aug 1, saying four workers had made money by deleting posts on online forums under requests from other corporations.

Shame, we can't forward this news to them like we do on the twitter-like weibo network.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Google will not delete offensive posts / comments/ reviews etc at the request of corporations.

This is something I have a lot of experience in.  I spent years working with companies and dealing with bad reviews and slanderous websites.  Unfortunatley, there was not much help I could give them.

In google maps, people can leave business reviews.  Companies get all upset over bad reviews and sometimes even competitors will leave fake bad reviews just to edge out the competition.  They will not remove bad reviews.  No one will even take the request.  Believe me, I've tried countless times.

I think some are doing the same on this forum for their Anglo masters!
Diane Abbot (British MP): Anglos love playing divide and rule
David Cameron (British PM): Anglos caused most of the world's problems!
