Some china's provinces has planned legislation to ban  on the controversial flesh searhes and defend the ban as a measure to protect the privacy.
But the internet itself is an open society. If anyone uploads his details  under his own willingness,  that means he is willing to share them with other netizens. only if the flesh searchers use the legal way to find them, the flesh searching is legal, maybe immoral.
In the  other side, the flesh search has done a great  help to expose many corruptiong case, which makes some internet users believe that the banning is a tool by some officials to protect their  ulterior secrets

Zhejiang province plans legislation against spreading, revising or deleting other people’s information on the Internet, ynxxb.com reported Friday.

The proposed Zhejiang Informationization Promotion Bill that aims to ban malicious human flesh search needs to be discussed and passed by the National People’s Congress before it becomes effective.

A human flesh search is effectively the same as what is known in the West as "crowd sourcing": Thousands of individual netizens piece together every detail of a person's life and then publish them online.

Similar rules in East China’s Jiangsu province in 2009 had aroused a dispute over civil rights. Some Internet users said they use human flesh searches to keep tabs on government officials and this kind of law can block the transparency for public interest, according to ynxxb.com.

if the ban is approved, that would limit the power of media which has played a key role on anti-corruption in China.
