An online novelist, Yuan Ping (pseudo name), was arrested by the Dongguan city police for spreading obscene material on September 26.

He started to write an online novel at Tianya forum in June 2009. The original title of the novel was “Sleeping in Dongguan in the 80s” 《80年代———睡在东莞》. It took Yuan Ping 4 months to write 155 chapters and 390 thousands words on the forum. The story is about the Sauna Industry in Dongguan and is written in the style of realism.

Yuan Ping is now under criminal detention and netizens are trying to “rescue” the writer by spreading the news online.
