The following post on Sina Weibo calling for the release of ousted former Chongqing party chief Bo Xilai (薄熙来) was deleted sometime before 1:52pm today, May 21, 2013. [More on deleted posts at the WeiboScope Search, by the Journalism and Media Studies Centre]
The post, one of a number on Bo Xilai appearing in the JMSC deleted posts archive in recent days, reads: “He is a good man and a good official. Give me purity!”
The post re-posts an image from the Sina Weibo account “Age of the Soldiers of Bo is Coming” (薄兵时代来) that apparently shows protesters bearing signs calling for Bo Xilai’s release. One of those signs reads: “Give me back Bo Xilai! Strengthen my China!”

The “Age of the Soldiers of Bo is Coming” Weibo now appears to have been deleted.
NOTE: All posts to The Anti-Social List are listed as “permission denied” in the Sina Weibo API, which means they were deleted by Weibo managers, not by users themselves.
