It is worth mentioning that this special operation focuses on key platform types such as social networking, short videos, and live broadcasts, and resolutely cracks down on 7 aspects of problems. The attached content of Gamingdeputy is as follows:

1. The behavior of “online toilet” and “opening boxes to hang people”. Create special BOT accounts, post bars, topics, groups, etc., and receive and publish sarcastic, malicious comments, curses and insults targeting specific groups or individuals through anonymous contributions, remote shouting, etc. In the name of exposure and criticism, they maliciously “open the box” and “hang people”, publicizing other people’s names, ID numbers, mobile phone numbers, home addresses, workplaces, personal photos, social accounts and other personal privacy information, inciting netizens to attack and abuse.


2. Use hot social events to maliciously slander and spread rumors. Spread rumors and slander relevant parties involved in emergencies, or edit and process pictures and videos that are seriously inconsistent with the facts, to induce netizens to attack and question the parties involved. Use the image of the parties involved in hot events to create and publish emoticons, and use AI software to synthesize fake pictures or videos such as vulgar pornography, bloody horror, etc., to spread rumors, attacks, and slander.

3. Stigmatize specific groups and incite regional confrontation. Associate individual vicious social events and negative figures with gender, occupation, region and other characteristics, stigmatize and negatively label specific groups, publish gender-antagonistic, class-antagonistic, and regionally discriminatory remarks, carry out generalized attacks, and intensify social conflicts.

4. Vulgar and bad live streaming behaviors such as fierce PK. Online anchors use behaviors such as showing off bravery, drinking, and swearing to increase their followers and attract traffic. During other people’s live broadcasts, they use functions such as barrages and mics to conduct personal attacks, and even encourage extreme behaviors such as suicide and self-harm. Make up scripts of violent conflicts such as fights and fights to attract netizens to watch and disrupt public order.

5. Organized and malicious abuse and reporting of others. In the name of “helping with work” and “relieving worries and anger”, they provide paid scolding services and leave abusive messages and private message attacks on specific accounts. Organize fan groups to use the platform’s “reporting” and “anti-gangster” functions to maliciously report others in batches. Publish comments that provoke war and malicious hype in the fields of entertainment, sports, e-sports, etc., inducing fans to quarrel with each other and control reviews.

6. Make up Internet slang and maliciously create rumors. Through pinyin, homophony, pronouns, etc., maliciously fabricate vulgar memes and bad buzzwords to pollute the Internet atmosphere. Use obscene language and foul language to deliberately provoke conflicts and create conflict.

7. Inciting extreme emotions online. Make up sensational post titles and publish “venting posts” that are made out of nothing and have no bottom line. Maliciously exaggerating the conflicts between teachers and students, exaggerating parents’ “oppression” and “squeezing” of their children, provoking conflicting relationships, and forming a negative direction for minors. Deliberately exaggerate negativity, anxiety and resentment, and spread hateful and antagonistic remarks.

During the special operation, we must persist in striking hard, close a group of account groups that seriously violate regulations and have a bad influence, resolutely ban a group of functional sections where hostility is concentrated and have outstanding problems, and strictly investigate and deal with a group of people who fail to perform their duties and commit crimes against others.
