Chinese authorities are about to unleash virtual police who will pop every 30 minutes on the 13 major internet portals to remind users not to commit crimes.

According to Associated Press, the "Beijing Internet Police", one male and one female dressed in uniform, will appear to remind internet users that everything they watch will be taken down and used as evidence against them.

They will remind users that they are not allowed to look at websites that incite secession, promote superstition, gambling, fraud and pornography.

According to the official organ the China Daily said the big idea is to wipe out information that does public harm and disrupts social order.

Apparently if the cartoon cops show up on your screen you can click on them and report anything you see that is suspicious.
