On the 36th Anniversary of Mao Zedong's Death, Baidu Tieba and Sina Weibo Censor Searches for His Name

These screenshots were taken on September 9, 2012, and show that searches for "Mao Zedong" (毛泽东) on Baidu's Tieba forum and Sina's Weibo microblogging platform returned no results, just censorship notices.

Baidu did not, however, censor web search results for "Mao Zedong."
