The picture basically shows that the official(who?!) has banned the Chinese word"自由(free)" in game.
If you change the loot method into free loot, it will turn out to be"分配方式设定为#@%拾取.", which if happens in English could be "Looting changed to #$% for All."
Here somebody could tell me whether the word "free" is also banned, COZ I am not playing WOW China?

This comes from my friend, she said:" I heard that the "freedom" has been banned in WOW China, I personally reckon that the next would be "democracy", Goddess bless celestial empire."

I'd say that these guys are getting better and better. First it's make everything dead hope around happily now it's ban the word freedom lol. Maybe we'll get the word "foreigner playing in china" banned too next time eh?

All in all, though I'd say this is unintentional and just a mistake though. Chinese government loves censuring shit but words, that are not even considered offensive to the majority? lol. I really want to see how this turns out ! Very Happy

I've run across several websites with the word "free" that coincidently cannot be reached without a proxy. Even "freeEnglishLessons.com" or something like that could be banned.
