Baidu post bar to be restructured

Yanhong Li recently published a blog post discussing
the selection of moderators on Baidu Post Bar, questioning
whether moderators should be elected, and what selection
criteria should be used during selection. Li stated that the
largest proportion of user feedback he receives is
concerning moderators. As Baidu Post Bar grows, so does
the power of moderators, leading to various issues involving
the quality of moderation, with some previous reports
suggesting that moderators are accepting "protection money"
for personal gain. On April 1, Baidu announced that Yu Jun,
company products president and founder of Baidu Post Bar,
would leave his post in June for personal reasons, leading to
speculation that Baidu Post Bar is undergoing restructuring.
