Beijing Jinjiang Networking Technology Co. was put under investigation by local authorities on Thursday for allegedly disseminating obscene information, China News Service reported last week. China Literature holds 50% of Beijing Jinjiang, according to its annual report. The Shanghai city government had ordered China Literature to clean up another website earlier that week, after it was found of spreading “vulgar and pornographic” information.

Frankly speaking there is some online lit that's worth a read, especially those with researched Taoist doctrines or historical contents but most of them are rubbish. The popular genres on platforms like Jinjiang or similar include protagonists who are "genius" traditional Chinese medicine practitioners in the rural areas, retired spec ops who are surrounded by cash and women as well as time-travelling girls that always win the heart of powerful and handsome emperors of ancient dynasties.
