Are you married, computer literate and "not easily irritated?" If so, you've qualified to join China's elite 50-person team squadron of Porn Identification Officers, sifting through internet content to separate the filth from the good, clean fun. Turns out it's mostly about whether scantily clad ladies are indoors or out.

One more question: are you willing to work for as little as RMB2,000 a month? Because that's probably all you'll make unless you know Japanese and understand international porn law, in which case you can hope for a promotion to Chief Pornographic Identification Officer and have a business card almost as cool as Chen Guangbiao's
