Sixty mothers have been selected from a shortlist to join the "Mom Jury" in a bid to clean up the Internet and safeguard children from porn, Qianlong.com reported.

The program these volunteers joined up Friday in Beijing were part of a nationwide campaign that has already shut down more than 15,000 porn websites in 2009.

Their first day as Internet guardian angels started with a training session on adolescence education by the group's organizer, Beijing Association of Online Media, whose program has already attracted a pool of over 200 mothers waiting to join the online tutelary corps.

The protective mothers will tip off Internet watchdog agencies about online indecency deemed harmful for adolescent Internet users, along with a jury proposal on countermeasures, and help monitor the enforcing process.

The jury board is open to new applications as backup members, according to the report.
