专八范文:
  
Human-powered search, or Renrou Sousuo, hasgained its popularity among Netizens in recentyears. With Netizens participating in search,humanpowered search becomes an efficient tool tofind desired information. In 2006, a Netizen uploadeda picture showing that a "beautiful” woman wasmaltreating a delicate kitty. The maltreatment wasso intolerable that Netizens decided to find out the culprit. Six days later, an anonymousNetizen submitted a post describing that the wanted woman lived in a town in a northernprovince andother detailed information. This successful case is followed by a series of human-powered search and arouses an ongoing controversy over the legality of human-poweredsearch.
  
近些年,人肉搜索受到了人们的广泛关注,特别是在网友中。网友也会参与到搜索之中,人肉搜索已经成为了寻找信息的有效手段。2006年,一位网友上传了一幅照片,照片显示的是一位美女正在虐待一只小猫。这样的虐待让人忍无可忍,网友决定寻找真凶。六天以后,一位没留下姓名的网友上传了一个帖子,帖子上说这个美女住在北部省份的城镇,还揭露了一些细节消息。这个事件的成功源于人肉搜索的成功,但是这样的行为引起了人们对人肉搜索合法性的热议。
  
Personally, I am of opinion that the new way of search is acceptable. Firstly, in retrospect,nearly all the targets of human-powered search are directed to those who violated moral rulesof our society, or are corrupted officials. Thanks to the human-powered search, those immoralpeople have been made public. Some did now show due respect to our former leaders, somespread erotic video to make a name, some outlet their personal resentment by makingnegative comments on earthquake-stricken victims, some maltreat their step-children, to lista few of those norm violators. Undoubtedly, once those culprits have been located by combinedefforts of Netizens, they would get at least moral punishments. In this sense, human-poweredsearch proves to be an effective means to find out norm violators and even criminals and givethem a dose of theirown medicine, so that we can build a more harmonious society.
  
我个人认为,这样的搜寻方式是可以接受的。首先,回顾事件,人肉搜索的几乎所有目标都是那些违反社会道德标准的人,或是贪官污吏。由于有了人肉搜索,这些缺乏道德的人被公诸于众。我们的前任领导人受到了人们的尊敬,许多人在网上散布色情视频,许多人在网上叙说自己的观点,并对地震受害者给予消极评价,许多人虐待继子女,我们只是列举了少数违反道德的例子。但是,一旦这些人被网友锁定,他们至少会得到道德的惩罚。从这一点来说,人肉搜索很有效,它是一种寻找道德违反者,甚至是罪犯的有效手段,人肉搜索会让他们自食其果,这有这样,我们才能建立更为和谐的社会。
  
Secondly, through the process of human-powered search, participants get educated byrenouncing the immoralities and hence established norms get strengthened. In a societywhere members lay their emphasis on how to make a fortune, how to gain celebrity, and howto climb to a higher layer of power pyramid, traditional virtues are deteriorating, whichexplains the frequency of those moral violations in recent years. When participants succeededin putting those moral violators under public scrutiny. they will not only take pridein theirsuccess to enforce moral rules, but also realize that they will get the same dose of medicine ifthey make similar mistakes. Gradually, the severity of moral punishments is likely to beconveyed to the whole society and therefore virtues get consolidated.
  
第二,通过人肉搜索,参与者将会得到一次教育,这样,现有的体制将会得到完善。在现在社会中,人们重视如何挣钱,如何出名,如何争权夺利,传统价值观正在遭到破坏,这也就能解释近些年违反道德事件频发的原因。当参与者将这些违反道德之人公布于众时,他们不仅会对他们加强道德规范的行为而感到骄傲,而且还意识到,他们也会以此为戒,防止犯相同的错误。通常,如何惩罚这些违反道德的人,这应该由社会决定,只有这样,道德观念才能更加完善。
  
As a coin has two sides, human-powered search is accused of intruding personal privacy andother negative points. In some cities, authorities have tried to prohibit the search. However,norm violators should not get away with punishment. I believe that, with the gradualperfection of human-powered search, it will receive a wide application.
  
凡事有两面,人肉搜索侵犯了个人的隐私,并会引起其他不良事件。在许多城市,政府正在试图避免这样的搜索行动。但是,违反道德规范的人不应该逃避惩罚。我相信,随着人肉搜索的不断完善,它还将得到更广泛的利用。
