China's quixotic attempt to purify the Internet of all vice has led to what has to be this year's most entertaining job posting. Via ChinaSmack, a company called Anquan (which means "safety" in Chinese) is looking to hire a "Chief Pornography Identification Officer" to, you guessed it, search the Internet for porn and report back about it.
That sound you heard was a hundred million college students updating their resumes.
The job description describes, well, basically what you'd imagine. You watch Internet porn. You describe what you see. You then watch more porn. The requirements, too, are pretty straightforward, though (amusingly) even this job requires a college degree. (Hey, no wonder colleges offer classes in pornography appreciation!) The pay isn't bad, either: Anquan is offering a salary of 200,000 RMB per year (just over $30,000) which, even in first-tier Chinese cities like Beijing and Shanghai, is pretty decent). Especially considering that a lot of people would probably do the job for free.
