The Hanly War (IV): The Rumormonger

【Abstract】

Immediately after declaring war on Han Han, Fang Zhouzi began to use his rumor weapon against his opponent. As a congenital and cunning rumormonger, Fang has his unique way of creating and spreading rumors to avoid the legal consequences. In this part of the Open Letter to Nature, I tell three stories about Fang’s rumormongering, and all of them occurred on Jan. 19, 2012, the second day of his entering into the Hanly War. Briefly, Fang first used a rumor to drag Han Han’s wife into the Hanly War, and then, he used a rumor to bind Han Han and the disliked Chinese government together to arouse public hatred toward him, and finally, he attacked Han Han’s father directly. The relationships between Fang Zhouzi and the initiators of these rumors are analyzed and discussed.

【Note】

On Oct. 21, 2014, Fang’s blogs and microblogs on China’s internet were completely shut down by the Chinese authority for unknown reason(s). Consequently, the majority of the links to Fang’s posts provided below have expired. However, the authenticity of the words which I quoted and translated in the Open Letter to Nature, this part as well as previous and future parts, can be verified in several ways: first of all, Fang Zhouzi and his followers have saved Fang’s entire posts on weibo.com; secondly, I myself have saved most, if not all of, Fang’s online posts; thirdly, many of Fang’s posts had been reposted by other people on the internet; finally, I believe that Fang’s blogs will be restored eventually. In other words, Fang’s notorious, evil, and criminal record is indelible.

Notes





As mentioned in the previous part of my Open Letter to Nature[1], Fang Zhouzi posted his first full-length article in the Hanly War, A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay, on his Weibo in the afternoon of Jan. 19, 2012, then he reposted it six times, and along the way, he spread various rumors against Han Han. So, what kind of rumors did Fang spread? What was Fang’s purpose to spread these rumors? And how did Fang spread these rumors? In this part of the Open Letter, I’ll answer these questions.

Attacking Enemy’s “Family Member,” Episode I: Han Han’s Wife Became a Target

1. Killing Three Birds with One Stone

Two hours after posting his Reply on his microblog, at 2012-1-19 15:38, Fang reposted a comment by a “Warrior 100” (骁勇100), which says:

“Will Sina recommend big brother Fang’s A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay? Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina, will big brother Fang’s account be shut down?”[2]

And here is Fang’s comment on the comment:

“Yesterday, [Sina’s editor-in-chief] Old Chen already publicly expressed his unequivocal support for Han Han’s personal attack on me, how could I expect Sina’s recommendation? It would make more sense to expect a recommendation by Sohu.com.”[3]

Immediately, some Fangangsters began to ask Old Chen to step down. For example, a faceless Weibo user “Dribs and Drabs ABC” (点点滴滴ABC), whose first message on his homepage is “In order to read Fang Zhouzi’s microblog, I registered Weibo. This is my first time”[4], posted the following comment 13 minutes after Fang’s comment:

“Support Fang Zhouzi! This Old Chen, ‘Sina’s executive deputy CEO, editor-in-chief Chen Tong,’ should resign immediately!”[5]

He would post 5 more comments under Fang’s this post.

8 minutes after the “Dribs and Drabs ABC” issued his demand, an internet user with a web ID “Kdjdjdjdjdjdjdj,”(used to be馒头酱爱肖肖, “Bread Sauce Loves Xiaoxiao”), who has no post at all on his homepage, posted the following comment on Fang’s post:

“Support Fang Zhouzi. This fucking garbage Sina executive deputy CEO should resign immediately…”[6]

In total, this person, who pretended to be a neutral observer, posted 21 comments in about 100 minutes under Fang’s post.


A pretender
A Weibo user “Kdjdjdjdjdjdjdj” who follows only one Weibo account and has only one follower but no post on his homepage before Nov. 3, 2014, pretended to be an impartial blogger and posted 21 pro-Fang comments under Fang’s rumor-spreading post (2012-1-19 15:38), and 16 comments under Fang’s two other posts on Jan. 19, 2012. Although appeared to be an inactive account, both its web ID and avatar are changed frequently, his current web ID is “Ktechyeshydd,” and since September 2014, he has changed his avatars at least three times (the images on the right).


At 16:00, 22 minutes after Fang expressed his dissatisfaction with Sina, his Reply was “recommended” by Sina Blog[7], which essentially increased the number of the readers of the article by 5-10 folds. So, what was Fang’s reaction? He waited more than 2 hours to “vindicate” Old Chen:

“Unexpectedly recommended by Sina, give Old Chen a vindication.”[8]

Here is a comment by Mr. Luo Yonghao on Fang’s vindication announcement:

“To ‘vindicate’ rather than to apologize after having wronged, Fang Zhouzi the fucking remnant of the Cultural Revolution is really considering himself the [Chinese Communist] Party.”[9]

Whether doing it on their own or under Fang’s pressure, Sina Blog would “recommend” almost every one of Fang’s anti-Han articles from that time on. Because Fang had disabled the commentary function of his Sina blog since 2006, solely because his anti-TCM campaign was severely and vehemently criticized by so many people, those who wanted to comment on his blog articles, such as his Reply, had to do it under his Weibo posts.

However, Fang’s true intention to repost that Warrior’s comment was to kill three birds with one stone: his first goal was to pressure Sina to recommend his anti-Han article; the second one was to threaten Sina that he might leave them for Sohu, and at same time he was flirting and seducing Sohu, obviously trying to raise his bargaining chips by playing the job-hopping game; and the last but definitely not the least goal was to spread the rumor that Han Han’s wife was an editor with Sina, implying that not only Han Han had the backing of Sina administration because of nepotism, but also his entire fame and success was built on such kind of relationship.

Fang did succeed in achieving his first and second goals; however, his last attempt backfired.

2. Pure Evildoing

In the evening of the day, Han Han posted his fourth response to the ghostwriting allegation, Man-made Fang Zhouzi, in which he accused Fang of five counts of wrongdoings, and one of them was spreading rumors:

“Mr. Fang Zhouzi reposted two microblogs, one was written by an internet user, saying that Han Han’s wife is an editor of Sina Net. Fang Zhouzi reposted this microblog and said that he couldn’t expect the [recommendation] from Sina, only expect it from Sohu. If by the time he still doesn’t win, my guess is that Fang Zhouzi will repost another microblog, saying Han Han’s mother is Sohu’s editor. Yes, my whole family is the editors of every website on the internet. Such an obvious rumor is actually reposted and commented on by Fang Zhouzi, indicating that both his writing style and personal character are crooked.”[10]

So, how did fraud fighter Fang respond to Han’s criticism? He immediately made a false counter-allegation: Rumormonger Han Han: A Reply to Han Han’s Man-made Fang Zhouzi. In the article, Fang brushed off Han Han’s other charges but responded only to the above one:

“[The reason] I said I didn’t expect Sina’s recommendation was because ‘Yesterday, Old Chen already expressed publicly his unequivocal support for Han Han’s personal attack on me,’ absolutely not because ‘Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina.’ I was only replying the internet user Warrior 100’s question ‘Will Sina recommend big brother Fang’s A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay?’. As for this internet user’s second question, ‘Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina, will big brother Fang’s account be shut down?’, I didn’t answer, I didn’t express any opinion on ‘Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina.’ (This internet user left a message later saying that [his mistake] was caused by misunderstanding what Han Han wrote in his A Normal Essay, ‘my wife, the editor of Sina’ ), however, Han Han created a rumor by quoting out of context saying that I spread rumor.”[11]

Of course Fang was lying. Everyone knew that one of the key messages he wanted to send out in that repost was to tell the world that “Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina.” That’s why Ms. Peng Xiaoyun, arguably the most vicious female Han-hater during the Hanly War, who would suggest China’s criminal investigation authority interrogating Han Han and his father with a polygraph[12], posted the following comment on Fang’s post:

“[Han Han’s] wife is a Sina’s editor? Seeking for verification. If it is true, it explains why my comment with only a few sentences on an opinion was manipulated.”[13]

As a matter of fact, many Weibo users pointed out Fang’s malicious intention right away:

“Starting to kill people through another person’s hands, [you are] really sinister, [you] wanted to say that Han’s wife is an editor with Sina, but you did it by reposting another person’s words.”[14]

“It is obviously a sockpuppet account, plus you are stupid. What Han Han said in his article is wife, then comma and Sina editor; he didn’t mean that his wife is an editor with Sina. So stupid to such extent. Don’t come out to make people sick.”[15]

“The quotation is well calculated, starting to attack Han Han’s wife.”[16]


The fact is, that Warrior admitted his stupidity 34 minutes after his original comment was reposted by Fang:

“Sigh, having misread! My language skill is not good, reading Sina’s editor as Han Han’s wife. Sina’s editors, I’m sorry. Big brother Fang, please don’t use this information.”[17]

When Fang picked up the Warrior’s first message at 15:38, the message was buried in about 5 thousand comments under his post, and most of them, about 80%, as usual, were negative. God knows how Fang found it. However, the above comment by the Warrior was made on Fang’s repost, which had only about one thousand comments in total. In other words, Fang had much bigger chance to find the Warrior’s second post than the first one. However, till this day, Fang is still pretending that he hasn’t seen it. Instead, Fang picked up one of that Warrior’s later comments, which was soon deleted by either Fang or the Warrior, to suggest that the person who should be responsible for the misreading is Han Han himself, because of his subpar Chinese. Here is that deleted message:

“Clarify the matter again, it was Han Junior’s ‘my…, my…’ sentence pattern which is misleading; let’s read his blog article’s sentence pattern: ‘my wife, Sina’s editor, one or two of my good friends, they all have my password.’ I don’t care about his wife, don’t know what she does.”[18]

So, exactly who should be responsible for the misreading? Here is the context of Han Han’s “sentence pattern”:

“As of now, there are still many friends who have the password of my blog……. My wife, Sina’s editor, one or two of my good friends, they all have my password. If this is considered a ‘team,’ then it is the ‘team.’ Here let me introduce two friends to prove myself. The first one is Sina’s staff Big Bird kiki, the second one is my classmate Ma Rila we have known each other for more than 10 years. Both of them have logged in to my blog, have seen in the draft box many articles to be posted.”[19]

As a matter of fact, minutes after Fang reposted the Warrior’s “misreading,” Mr. Wang Jiamin (汪佳敏) (web ID 马日拉, Ma Rila, or马锐拉, Ma Ruila), one of Han Han’s classmates and the most vocal supporter of Han Han among his friends, posted the following message:

“Old Fang has fallen into the trap again. You should have added ‘is it real’ to ‘Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina.’”[20]

The fact is, even though that idiotic Warrior might be indeed misled by his inferior Chinese reading skill, it is absolutely certain that Fang’s “falling into the trap” was intentional and deliberate, because simply of his behavioral pattern.

As I have mentioned repeatedly, one of Fang’s most frequently used weapons against his enemies is to target their “family members,” so by reposting that Warrior’s message, Fang was intentionally and purposefully to make Han Han’s wife a target waiting for his attack. Indeed, ever since he reposted the comment by the Warrior, Fang has personally attacked Han Han’s wife several times, directly or indirectly.

On Feb. 1, 2012, Fang reposted a message by Ms. Li Li, well-known as Muzi Mei for her self-documented promiscuity, and one of the key members of a female Han-hater club which she called, appropriately, “Fuck Four.” Ms. Li’s message was:

“When Fang Zhouzi fights the war of words, Liu Juhua never says anything. [In comparison,] every member of Han Han’s family fights for him, and the more they fight, the worse the consequence. How old are you? Millions of fans, dad, wife, publisher, and the buddies of drinking and eating, they all come out, and you are still cowardice like this.”[21]

Fang reposted it with the following comment:

“Father and son are the best combination when going into a battle; husband and wife is the best combination when engaging in a fight; relatives and friends are the best aids.”[22] 【Note: “Father and son are the best combination when going into a battle” is a Chinese expression.】

Of course, Ms. Li Li would become one of Fang’s deadest foes in 6 months.

On April 1, 2012, Fang reposted another Fang-lover’s message which says that Han Han’s wife Jin Lihua didn’t know the fact that Han Han had just re-opened his Weibo account[23]. Fang’s comment:

“It is called a guilty person conspicuously protests his innocence, Han Han didn’t report [to his wife] when he opens his microblog.”[24]

That was the first time Fang revealed the real name of Han Han’s wife on his Weibo.

On July 23, 2012, Fang posted the following message to instruct his followers to attack Han Han’s wife, as well as his father:

“By reposting the message, Han Renjun admitted the fact that the microblog account on qq.com owned by ‘Han Han’ (or using his term ‘Jin Lihua’s husband’) is controlled by other people. Some contents on ‘Han Han’s’ QQ Weibo didn’t show up on his Sina Weibo, it seems that they were reposted by the controllers without the authorization.”[25]

The fact is, besides Han Han, Han Han’s father, Mr. Han Renjun, was the person most frequently and viciously attacked by Fang Zhouzi and his gangsters during the Hanly War. (See below.)

3. Warrior 100 Has Become a Fang-hater

The question is: who is that Warrior?

The Warrior 100 registered his Weibo account on Feb. 24, 2010, claiming that he is a teacher at a second or third tier college in Beijing. As of today, Nov. 3, 2014, there are only 28 posts on his homepage on weibo.com, the earliest one was posted on 2013-5-21, 16 months after he was quoted by Fang. No wonder many people believed that he is one of Fang’s “little accounts” or sockpuppets[26].

The funny thing is, since November 2013, this Warrior has posted 4 anti-Fang posts on his homepage:

“Fang Shimin has already been insane.”[27]

“Laugh to death: Scum Fang is opening his mouth for 300,000 Yuan mental damages? What kind of damages has he suffered? Has he suffered from insomnia? Has he had a mental shadow? A ruffian who scolds and attacks other people on the internet all the time actually has mental damages after having been scolded back. ”[28]

“It is very strange that Fang Zhouzi hasn’t said anything about the Guo Meimei incident yet. Doesn’t he want to investigate the relationship between her and the Red Cross? It doesn’t consistent with his previous enthusiasm about busting Chen Baocheng, Xia Junfeng’s son, Li Chengpeng’s disaster relief effort, Ai Weiwei, analyzing Zhu Ling’s case, etc. It is not scientific, very unscientific!”[29]

“【Is she a naked official?】 Her husband holds a Green Card and resides permanently in the United States; she has purchased a house in the U. S. worth $670,000; she herself serves as a chief reporter in the nation’s mouthpiece Xinhua News Agency. Is she a naked official?”[30]



A change of heart?
Warrior 100, a self-assumed Fang’s “little brother,” posted at least 10 comments under Fang’s various posts on January 19, 2012, to show his support for Fang’s campaign against Han Han (the screenshots on the left). He posted at least 35 similar comments on the next day. None of these comments showed up on his homepage. However, since November 1, 2013, this Fang-lover has posted 4 posts against Fang on his homepage (the screenshots on the right). The image in the right lower corner is the title portion of his homepage on weibo.com.


Playing the Political Card

On Jan. 19, 2012, Fang Zhouzi spread several rumors against Han Han by commenting on his gangsters’ comments on his Reply to Han Han, and the most damaging rumor of the day, saying that the Chinese government had issued an order to ban the publication of anti-Han Han articles, was spread in a very tricky way, which demonstrates beyond any doubt about Fang’s malicious intention against Han Han. The following is the story.

1. Spreading a Rumor and Pretending to be a Hero

At 3:16 PM on Jan. 19, 2012, 99 minutes after Fang posted his Reply to Han Han on weibo.com, or 22 minutes before he reposted that Warrior’s comment, an internet user with a web ID “Wind Green Poplar” (风青杨V) posted the following comment:

“Fang has never compromised with the power; now there is a ban from the upper level on publishing articles against Han Han; the rich and famous have all come out to support Han Han, [Han’s] fans are like a water army on the internet, drowning with mouth water anyone who dare to oppose him. Where is the voice of questioning? From the top to the bottom, only an individual Fang Zhouzi could be seen, Maitian surrendered in two days.”[31]

Two minutes later, he posted the message again, with slight modification[32]. At 5:11 PM, Fang reposted the message with the following comment:

“Based on what? Based on the successful transformation with the Han’s Trio and receiving the amulet? Then, it needs to be continued even more.”[33]

Fang’s anti-government bravery was immediately hailed by the Fangangsters. Still remember that “Three Grams of Oil”? He posted the following comment twice:

“Oh, so intricate! Then, Teacher Fang, it’s better that we re-consider the matter, maybe [we should] let him go. It is for the same reason as those martial arts people in the past that we the nongovernmental fighters don’t fight against the government.”[34]

A “Xu Zhuzi” (虚逐子), who used to be one of Fang’s top two hatchet men – hence the nickname “Vice Chairman Xu” (虚副主席) – but in early this year, he imposed a self-exile due to a dispute with his master, posted the following comment:

“Han Han, the opinion leader of the liberals, is actually protected by the ‘upper level,’ this……those disciples who have been following and praising Han Han because of his shouting freedom and democracy and opposing the system are going to become schizophrenic.”[35]

Still remember that “Rational Organism,” the “hybrid” between Fang Zhouzi and Liu Juhua? He posted two comments, here is one of them:

“Fang Zhouzi holds the two sharp swords, evidence and logic, in his hands; he will destroy anyone who dares to jump out, whether he is Han-father, a Han-fan, or a public intellectual. Go!”[36]

Here is a comment by Ludwig-von-Mises, one of the most active commentators under Fang’s anti-Han posts:

“The Han’s Trio is the tribute of surrender paid by Han Han to the Fifty Cent Party. After that, Han Han has transformed himself into the new opinion leader of the Fifty Cent Party. [When he] raises his arm and shouts, the Fifty Centers follow and respond. If Han Han is toppled in the future, the situation must be like a tree falling down, and the monkeys scattering in all directions. A very joyous picture.”[37]

Just like his throwing one stone to kill three birds by reposting the Warrior’s comment, by reposting the comment by the Poplar, Fang also had more than one goal. And his other goal was revealed by his followers. Here is the comment by that “Handsome Cobbler”:

“Those who have said that Old Fang is a Fifty Center are stunned.”[38]

And here is the comment by the Awesome Lord Is Awesome:

“You are the man; [a man] should be like this.”[39]

Obviously, Fang Zhouzi, the person most widely suspected to be a Fifty Center, benefited the most from the rumor he spread: he literally transformed Han Han into a Fifty Center, and transformed himself into an anti-government hero.

2. The Origin of the Rumor and its Mysterious Creator

So, based on what that “Wind Green Poplar” posted his message? Indeed, many people questioned his creditability right after Fang reposted his message:

“Is that ‘Wind Green Poplar’ rumormongering? Which upper level bans the publication of the anti-Han Han articles? How did a so called marketing expert get the information?”[40]

“Having just taken a look at that ‘Wind Green Poplar,’ introduced as a brand marketing expert, so where does his sentence ‘there is a ban from the upper level on publishing articles against Han Han’ come from? He is even not a journalist. What is the most sickening thing is that [some people] readily say something about the upper level. Why don’t you show us the evidence? Don’t dump dirty water on the upper level, really disgusting!!!!”[41]


Ironically, that “Wind Green Poplar” had already answered the questions like these long before Fang had the chance to repost his message. Six minutes after the Poplar posted his first comment, one internet user asked him:

“Is it so scary like this? Is the information reliable?”[42]

The Poplar replied:

“A friend [of mine] said that his Sohu editor friend told him so.”[43]

3 minutes later, the Poplar retold his story as the following, and posted the story on his homepage also:

“Two of my recent [anti-Han Han] articles were killed, so they had to be published on China Elections and Governance Network. A friend said that he was told by his Sohu editor that there is a ban from the upper level, Li Chengpeng has been banned from blogging and microblogging for a few days, and the articles opposing or attacking Han Han cannot be published.”[44]

From 3:16 PM to the midnight, this Poplar posted at least 31 comments under Fang’s posts, 19 of them were posted right under Fang’s A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay. As a matter of fact, he posted the following message 7 times in 23 minutes:

“If Han-fans continue to talk about the conspiracy theory, saying that [those who] attack Han Han are out of jealousy, saying that discussing Han Han is equivalent to ruining the public intellectuals, I’ll not reply to each of you individually any more. I have discussed the matter very clearly in this article: [t.cn].”[45]

It is so obvious that this Poplar was much more interested in promoting his article than anything else. The funny thing is, even though being promoted like that, his article has only been read about 4 hundred times, as of today, nearly 3 years later.

So, who is this guy?

The following is a paragraph of the entry “Wind Green Poplar” in Baidu Encyclopedia, which was most likely contributed by that person himself:

“Renowned expert on enterprise brand operation strategy; senior expert on personal brand building; China's top ten planner on outstanding brand marketing; incumbent CEO of the brand building agency Winning the World; the practical brand marketing expert highly recommended by the Forbes magazine of the United States; evaluation expert of the Brand China’s People of the Year; expert or lecturer of Guangzhou Brand Strategy Project, International Brand Attestation Council, International Profession Certification Association, Brand China Industrial Alliance, etc.; distinguished course professor of EMBA and CEO Classes in the business schools at Nanjing University, Zhejiang University, Zhongshan University, etc.”[46]

Sounds really impressive, right? The only problem is that this personal brand builder doesn’t want other people to know his real name[47]. The fact is, I could not find the background information about either his education or his company “Winning the World” anywhere on the internet.

Does anyone smell fishy?


A brand marketing expert sells himself the hard way
An internet user with a web ID “Wind Green Poplar” initiated a rumor by saying that the Chinese government banned the publication of the articles questioning Han Han or exposing his supposed ghostwriting fraud. In about 9 hours, this person posted at least 31 comments, mostly under Fang’s posts, to promote his anti-Han Han articles. His rumor against Han Han was picked up and spread by Fang Zhouzi who would use it as one of his deadliest weapons in the entire Hanly War.
(Note: the personal photo of the Poplar is widely available on the internet.)


3. Cold and Calculating

When the Poplar posted his “upper-level ban” comment on Fang’s post at 3:16 PM, and again 2 minutes later, Fang’s post, A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay, had already been commented on for more than 4 thousand times. When Fang picked the Poplar’s comment up and reposted it at 5:11 PM, the post had been commented on for 2 thousand more times. These 6 thousand-plus comments were distributed in more than 300 web pages, and more than 80% of them were negative. And just like he miraculously found that Warrior’s comment among more than 5 thousand comments less than 2 hours earlier, Fang somehow managed to find the comment by the Poplar. The thing is, no matter how did Fang’s radar-laser eyes find the Poplar’s original message, they should have at least twice the opportunity to find the Poplar’s confessions that what he had just posted was nothing but hearsay. However, Fang, as always, selectively ignored the messages he disliked, and picked up and reposted what he liked. Does this constitute spreading rumor intentionally?

As a matter of fact, Fang did much more to make sure that the rumor he spread looked and sounded reliable: to prevent other people from seeing the Poplar’s confessions, Fang deliberately cut the comment off his original post, so the reposting started an independent thread, instead of a reposting of his Reply in a series (see the illustration below). Why did Fang want to do that? Because by doing so, Fang hoped that his readers won’t be able to look up the comments on his Reply to trace the source of the rumor. That’s how premeditated Fang was.


Cold calculation
After posting his A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay on weibo.com at 2012-1-19 13:37 (upper left), Fang picked up 7 comments under the post, including his own, to comment on. The default setting of Sina Weibo makes such operation – commenting on a comment - repost the original post automatically. Indeed, 6 of the 7 operations by Fang did repost the original post (the grey areas in the above image); however, at 2012-1-19 17:11, when Fang Zhouzi picked up the comment by the “Wind Green Poplar” to spread the rumor that Han Han was protected by the government (the post bordered by the red lines), he deliberately disallowed the reposting of his original post. The only plausible explanation to his bizarre operation is that he was trying to prevent other people from tracing the other comments made by that “Wind Green Poplar” which were buried in the commentary section of the original post. The image in the upper right is the screenshot of the title portion of Fang’s microblog homepage on Jan. 19, 2012, showing that Fang had 1.7 million followers and 7,607 posts at that time.


There is another evidence to show that Fang spread the rumor deliberately. Minutes after Fang reposted the Poplar’s comment, Mr. Wang Jiamin (Ma Rila) posted the following message:

“It was actually ‘received an order from the upper level, requiring to remove any reports related to Han Han from the homepages.’ However, when reached to Fang-fans, it was changed to ‘there is a ban on anti-Han Han articles.’ The ‘fraud fighter’ jumps into the hole without scruple to help the moronic internet users to create and spread the rumor, Old Fang, it isn’t worth it.”[48]

Mr. Wang’s message was quoted and reposted for more than a hundred times before it was deleted by the Sina administration, and till Oct. 21, 2014, when Fang’s Weibo account was shut down, there were still dozens of copies of the message under Fang’s rumor-spreading post. However, Fang has never responded to the message. Instead, he tried to discredit Mr. Wang by reposting two comments by his old clubs, Mr. Zhao Nanyuan and Mr. Du Lei, on one of Mr. Wang’s older posts, with his own comment:

“Not only does Ma Rila know the password of Han Han’s blog, he was also suspected to be Han Han’s ghostwriter back in 2007.”[49]

That was the very first time that Fang mentioned Mr. Wang directly on his microblog, and only one of few times he had the guts to do so, because Mr. Wang was one of Fang’s worst nightmares during the Hanly War. In other words, purely based on the fact that Fang dared not to respond Mr. Wang’s message directly, rather, he tried to assassin Mr. Wang’s character, we can conclude affirmatively that what Mr. Wang said is true, and Fang knew that, hence his spreading the rumor was deliberate, intentional, and premeditated.

4. Fang’s Last Strategy

In the evening of Jan. 19, 2012, Han Han wrote his third response to the ghostwriting allegation, Man-made Fang Zhouzi, in front of many people and posted it online. In the article, Han Han made 5 accusations against Fang Zhouzi: 1. Quoting out of context; 2. Quoting out of context to such an extent; 3. Creating rumors; 4. Spreading rumors; 5. Misleading. In the fourth category, spreading rumors, Han Han gave two examples, the first one is Fang’s reposting of the Warrior’s comment to spread the rumor that Han Han’s wife is an editor with Sina; his second example is about the governmental ban:

“Another message is based on what an internet user said that there is an administrative order which bans the publication of all the articles against Han Han. Fang Zhouzi reposted the message, saying: Based on what? Then I want to publish [such articles] even more. Fang Zhouzi puts himself in the position of a victim and protester with the help of a rumor; he also implies that I have backers in the upper level, which just like that he cries to the mass saying that ‘his father is the mayor.’ The so called ban on publishing any articles against me is obviously a rumor. As a fraud fighter, Mr. Fang Zhouzi not only doesn’t fight the fraud when his personal interest is in need to be satisfied, he actually cites all kinds of rumors. It is really a wonder that a flock of rumor spreaders and a so called fraud fighter act in collusion with each other, work hand in glove.”[50]

The allusion behind “his father is the mayor” is actually a series of incidents occurred in China in the previous years in which the sons of those in power first caused troubles, and then they would yell “My father is ……”when someone tried to stop them[51]. These incidents made the common people extremely hostile to the powerful and spoiled sons. And Fang’s true intention for spreading the rumor was indeed trying to provoke other people’s enmity towards Han Han.

So, how did Fang respond to Han Han’s accusation?

Fang’s “response,” Rumormonger Han Han, appeared in 80 minutes. Here is its first paragraph:

“Han Han has just published a blog article, Man-made Fang Zhouzi, which is directed at a few of my microblog posts, the main content of the article is to say that I quote out of context, create rumors, spread rumors. It seems that he doesn’t know the fact that Sina’s Weibo has a 140-character limit; therefore I can only excerpt a few sentences to make pointed comments. Based on that, he blamed me for ‘quoting out of context.’ However, exactly how did I quote out of question, he won’t make a specific analysis. The fact is, the main content of my A Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay was based on the microblog posts, however, because there is no character limit, I filled up all of the omitted words, even attached the full text of Han Han’s article, from where you can tell that I quote out of context?”[52]

Yes, in the entire article, Fang talked only about quoting out of context, and to Han Han’s other allegations, Fang bushed off with the following sentence:

“Han Han asked me to ‘answer one by one,’ the fact is I have already answered some of the allegations in my Reply to Han Han’s A Normal Essay (for example, the rumor allegation of ‘Offering a heavy monetary reward on one hand, and destroying the evidence at the same time on the other’), and it is not necessary to answer the rest allegations one by one.”[53]

As usual, when Fang levels an allegation against a person, it is necessary for that person to answer the allegation thoroughly and completely, otherwise, that person is admitting guilt by default, because according to Fang’s Law, remaining silent is “the last strategy of the imposters whenever their frauds are brought to light.” However, when the fraudulent fraud fighter is accused of wrongdoings or evildoings or crimes, he has the God-given right to remain silent: he is the absolute authority to determine which allegation is necessary and which is not to answer.

5. Joseph Goebbel Fang

The fact is, right after spreading the governmental ban rumor on his microblog, Fang began to appear frequently on China’s televisions to attack Han Han. Here is a message posted by Mr. Wang Jiamin on Feb. 22, 2012, but it was soon deleted by Sina Weibo:

“From the reliable source! The documentary film about Han Han, made by Shanghai Documentary Channel, in which Han Han’s classmates, teachers, friends, and related personals had been interviewed, has been taken away by the Central Propaganda Department for censorship, it might never be broadcasted! At the same time, the program Approaching Fang Zhouzi, made by the same TV station, was broadcasted last night. Everyone has seen how many times Fang has appeared on TV interviews recently. See the picture below. Isn’t it shameless to make and spread rumors like this? Han Han has already been exhausted, but I will fight together with you against the evil to the end!”[54]

Mr. Yao Bo (web ID 五岳散人) posted the following comment, probably on the above post, and it was soon deleted also:

“The matter is really bizarre, on one hand, Fang Zhouzi keeps yelling that Han Han is protected by some people behind him, there is a ban on reporting negative news [about him]; on the other hand, he appears on every television station, including the media in Shanghai. Has anyone seen a whore who claims that she is having her period every day, but she has never stopped doing her business?”[55]


The biggest beneficiary from spreading a rumor
Immediately after spreading the rumor that Han Han was protected by the Chinese government, Fang began to appear on China’s traditional and internet televisions frequently to spread his anti-Han Han messages. The above image was made by Mr. Wang Jiamin[56], showing that Fang on one hand kept saying that there is a ban on publishing anti-Han Han articles (Left, the words read: “The upper level has issued a Han-protection order”), and on the other, he had appeared on TV stations in Hubei, Shanghai, Guangxi, Liaoning, Ningxia, and the Network TVs such as Tencent, Phoenix, Tudou, and Ku6 Media.


Till this day, Fang is still insisting that Han Han has been protected by the government. For example, in May, 2013, in a Weibo talk show on qq.com, “Nan-Fang Park,” co-hosted by Fang and his generally acknowledged Fifty Center buddy Sima Nan, one internet user asked:

“Why do the mainstream media pretend to be deaf and dumb on Han Han incident?”[57]

Fang’s answer:

“Because Han Han is a genuine Fifty Center, the Han’s Trio, which has been proven to be ghostwritten by Han Renjun, is liked by the government. Last year, there were many medium people who testified that there had been a Han-protection order, disallowing the exposure of Han Han in news media.”[58]

On April 18, 2014, when Mr. Bei Zhicheng revealed that one of the closest confidants of Mr. Zhou Yongkang, probably the most corrupted official in China’s history, had told many people that Fang’s attack on Han Han was instructed by the upper level[59], Fang responded:

“It has been proven before that Han Han is a Fifty Center, however, Bei Zhicheng actually dares to create a rumor saying that the upper level ordered me to attack Han the Fifty Center? If [what I did] was ordered by the upper level, how come the Propaganda Department had the guts to issue the Han-protection order?”[60]

Four months later, in his another microblog talk show on qq.com, “Fang Zhouzi and His e-Friends,” Fang answered a question from a “Clippety-clop” (哒哒的马蹄), who resides in Fujian, Fang’s home province, and has only 3 posts on his homepage as of today, thus he is very likely to be one of Fang’s, or his family members’ little account. The question was:

“I admire you two teachers very much! It is impossible to let Han One and Han Two admit the ghostwriting fraud, it is very difficult to bring this group of fraudsters to justice without the intervention of the state authority. How can [we] make the state authority to intervene?”[61]

Fang’s answer:

“It is lucky enough that the state authority doesn’t interfere with our exposure of the fraud, how can [we] expect them to get involved in the investigation? In the past, a certain agency in Shanghai issued a ‘Han-protection order,’ prohibiting the exposure of Han Han’s fraud in the news media.”[62]

Have you noticed that Fang changed the supposed central governmental “Han-protection order” to an order issued by “a certain agency in Shanghai”?

In many ways, Fang is the reincarnated soul boy of Joseph Goebbels, and he believes Goebbels’ famous teaching faithfully:

“Repeat a lie a thousand times and it becomes the truth.”

Indeed, what Fang has been doing in the past 14 years or so is nothing but telling lies, and then repeating the lies in the name of “standing up for science” or “rooting out the fakers,” as portrayed by the “international, interdisciplinary journal of science,” Nature[63]. What a joke!


ScieNazi Joseph Goebbel Fang is rewarded for telling lies and repeating the lies


Attacking Enemy’s “Family Member,” Episode II: Han Han’s Father Became a Target

Before going to bed in the midnight of Jan. 19, 2012, Fang attacked Han Han’s father for the first time. Again, Fang did so by commenting on a comment by one of his gangsters, and this time, the gangster was no one else but that “Awesome Lord Is Awesome” (牛爷牛), whom I have mentioned above and previously[1]. Here is the comment by the Lord:

“Even Han Han’s father has jumped out, and his words are as mean as his son’s; he also thinks that since Maitian has apologized, so should you. These democracy activists are really autocratic.”[64]

And here is Fang’s comment on the Lord’s comment:

“Father and son are the best combination when going into a battle; one yells on his microblog, another spreads rumors on his blog, the labor division is not bad.”[65]

1. Ruthless Attacks by Fang’s Mobsters

Immediately after Fang posted his insidious and sinister comment, the Fangangsters began to attack Han Han’s father. A “Love My Shenhua” (爱我申花--, Shenhua is a Shanghai-based soccer club) posted the following message 4 times in 3 minutes:

“Han Han’s father old dog Han Renjun has finally come out. The two retardates could not get into colleges. They do have genetic [connection].”[66]

And he posted the following message 5 times under Fang’s this post, plus at least twice under Fang’s other posts:

“A dog bites people only when it gets vexatious. When questioning other people, Han Han and his father are eloquent; however, when being questioned, they immediately show their doggy teeth and the appearance of vixens, mentioning genitals, balky, impotency, etc. When a dog is cornered, it can jump over a wall. When Han Han and his father get vexatious, they don’t care anymore about their monument of chastity which has been used to cover up their whoring; they become dogs and bite people directly. Don’t provoke the father and son, or at least [you should] have some dog food; the doggy father and son are followed by a pack of mentally retarded dogs which are even more vicious.”[67]

Altogether, this thug posted 134 comments under Fang’s post within 4 hours in the second half of the night, scolding and cursing Han Han, his father, and his supporters.

Still remember that foul-mouthed Xuan Zhongzi (玄中子)? He posted 91 abusive comments under Fang’s post in less than 3 hours, and as usual, he particularly zeroed in on Han Han’s female supporters. Here are his first two comments:

“To package his son, the Old Father Han has done all he could, in spite of his sickness; [he should] be careful that when he is hurt badly by Fang Zhouzi, he might be unable to catch his last breath and kick the bucket. Ho-ho. @Han Renjun.”[68]

“Judged by the performance in the last few days, Han Han’s father is nothing but an old rogue and villain, and his son is not much better than him. Now he is cornered and becomes aggressive. There will be good dramas to watch.”[69]


Here are his messages to two young women:

“Your vagina is lacerated, how come you’re still not going? Han’s father is waiting for you vexedly.”[70]

“What you’ve said is right, the old dog, Han Han’s father, is too hungry and thirsty, he wants to fuck you.”[71]


Another vicious Fangangster called himself “leslie-87,” but he changed his ID to “leslie_940904” later. The earliest message on his homepage on weibo.com was posted on 2012-4-20, however, he posted 86 abusive comments under Fang’s this post in less than 5 hours, also in the second half of the night. The following message was posted by him 3 times:

“Han Han is only a shady and dirty person with a low character, [which is shared by] his team members and fans. This Shanghai little ruffian is foul-mouthed, insults and attacks Fang Zhouzi, and the members of his team, Lu Jinbo, Ma Rila, and his father, siege and attack Fang Zhouzi together. And look at Fang Zhouzi, I am really fucking admiring you! You are not fighting alone! A vast number of righteous people are behind you and support you!”[72]

The funny thing is, in less than 30 minutes after posting the above message, this “righteous” thug would pretend to be a Han-lover, or at least an impartial person, by posting the following message 6 times:

“You ask me whom do I support? I support Han Han, I also support Fang Zhouzi, but I support the truth even more. Han Han dares to speak out, enlightening the mass; Fang Zhouzi dares to fight against fraud, purifying the atmosphere. They both are the people who deserve to be respected. Both Han Han and Fang Zhouzi, as public figures, should set an example for accepting questioning, and I also hope that their supporters could treat the matter calmly. If Han Han has no problems, what harm he will get by letting Fang Zhouzi continue to investigate him? If one’s body is upright, he or she should not be scared of the distorted shadow.”[73]

What even funnier is that this thug was so moved by his own writing that he hailed himself twice: “Well said!” “Well-reasoned, Han Han’s fans should take a good look at it.”[74] And then he would continue to curse, scold, and attack Han Han and his fans, and eulogize Fang:

“Fang Zhouzi is an American Ph. D. in biology, Han Han even didn’t graduate from a high school; and yet there are still some people who question Fang Zhouzi’s IQ and logic. Ridiculous. The mentally retarded Han-fans, don’t show your lower limit here.”[75]

“The mentally retarded Han-fans, have you ever heard [the proverb] things are classified into categories, and people are separated into groups? What kind of rubbish are those who support Han Han? [They are] little ruffians who are high school dropouts and foul-mouthed. The high quality people cannot afford to lose face to be Han Han’s fans.”[76]


“All of Han Han’s female fans are basically extremely ugly nymphomaniacs, unfortunately, Han Han has already become a father, and you the cheap stuff can only masturbate yourselves by holding Han Han’s handsome photos.”[77]



A maniac Han-hater
When Fang sent out the signal to attack Han Han’s father, the Fangangsters jumped into action immediately. A Han-hater who calls himself “Love My Shenhua” (爱我申花--)posted 134 comments in about 4 hours, viciously attacking Han Han, his father, and his supporters.



A toilet mouth
A Fang-lover who calls himself Xuan Zhongzi (玄中子) was extremely fond of and good at targeting young female internet users with the dirtiest language. He posted 91 abusive comments under Fang’s attacking-Han Han’s father post, to attack Han Han’s female supporters, among whom he was well-known as the Fang-lover with a dirtiest mouth.




A fanatic Fang-lover
A Fang-lover who calls himself leslie_940904 posted 86 comments under Fang’s signal-sending post. He tried his best, including pretending to be a Han-lover, to stop other people from criticizing his master Fang Zhouzi. He would post at least another 108 comments under Fang’s other posts in the next 24 hours.



The undercover Fang-lovers
Many Fang-lovers deliberately hide not only their true identities, but also their love for Fang Zhouzi, simply because of Fang’s extreme notoriety: to most people, helping Fang is equal to doing evil. The above image shows two such undercover Fang-lovers who have basically nothing on their homepages on weibo.com; however, they have posted hundreds, if not thousands, of pro-Fang comments under Fang’s various posts. The person on the left in the above image calls himself “yevjd,” who has only one post on his homepage, but he posted 29 comments under Fang’s attacking-Han Han’s father post. He would post 57 more comments on the next day under Fang’s other posts. The person on the right calls himself “Silent Night Cold Observer” (静夜冷观), who, having been introduced previously as Fang’s minuteman[1], registered his Weibo account on Jan. 19, 2012. Needless to say, the only purpose of the account was to attack Han Han and eulogize Fang. Under Fang’s this particular post, this “Cold Observer” posted 30 comments.



Fang’s dark knights
Two Fang-lovers with dark avatars scolded Han Han, his father, and his supporters viciously. The person on the left calls himself Kua Fu (夸父st, a giant in Chinese mythology), and he posted 18 comments under Fang’s post, 14 of them are essentially the same, a doggerel cursing Han Han and his father. The person on the right called himself Little Jie (w丶小杰), but changed his web ID to “Don’t Know You Because of Meeting for the First Time” (第一次见不认识) just recently, was a college student at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology. He is currently an active member of the Fangangsters.



Another pair of Fang-lovers
The person on the left calls himself “STRHWHWTJHWRTJWTJ” who has only 91 posts on his homepage on weibo.com, the first 5 were reposts of Fang’s messages. The person on the right calls himself “Independent Little Bridge” (独立小瞧), he is one of the most diligent Fang-lovers during the Hanly War. He would post more than 100 comments under Fang’s posts in the next 24 hours. These two people each posted dozens of anti-Han/pro-Fang comments under Fang’s post attacking Han Han’s father.




The housekeeping running dogs
These people make frequent appearance under Fang’s posts to flatter Fang and curse Fang’s enemies. The above images show the comments they posted under Fang’s attacking Han Han’s father post.



Fang’s zombie brigade
Perhaps because it was the holiday season, many of Fang’s zombie soldiers were inactive in the battle of attacking Han Han’s father. The profiles of the two most active zombies in the battle are shown.
