My bet is that somebody in CD management is responding to political criticism and these rules result. I'll bet the enforcement will be minimal because the CD staff themselves enjoy the free speech. This happens in all organizations.

Just imagine. You are a young party-member looking forward to a good life. You get a pleasant job editing an English language site. If you perform well, you have a good chance of being posted abroad. At your workplace party meetings everybody expresses their love for China and the leading role of the party. You see, every day, hostile anti-Chinese and anti-party postings by both foreigners and Chinese. You are asked what rules you think are appropriate. Naturally, you will recommend the strictest of rules - as do the other ordinary editors. Even though you are personally-inclined in a liberal direction, you have your career to consider.

You are sometimes amazed when a more senior party member quietly tells you not to enforce these rules as strictly as you recommended. Soon you learn to smile.
What's on your mind...

In practice - rules are not so "strict"...
We can share personal impresion on China even if it is negative.
The key is to do it while using an aproperiate language, and within the cultural limits.

There are people here who claim that China is an ideal place, "living Utopia". They have the right to claim so, but also without "bashing" everybody that think opposite.

Since few months ago CD begun taking more care about the personal insults and arguments (which IMHO are a real problem) - this makes forum a bit "cleaner".
This is very good example, what is the practical application of "Rules".

Rule is the rule, but how to put it in work - is more important.
Not only a letter of law, but more important -  a spirit of the law.
