Hi everyone,

My name is Thomas, I am very fond of Chinese culture and everything related to the very unique digital way of life we can find here.

Here seems the best place to start,

I am very much looking forward to writing about everything I see and find interesting about China!

I just want to tell you that this is not a regular forum where you can innocently discuss things. The Chinese people don't like to be contradicted. If you must contradict them, do it indirectly. Or else you will be categorized and put on the other side, and they will doubt you forever.

i don't understand it, chinese people are so strict about certain rules, but they ignore other rules, for example, driving rules, or no smoking signs, etc...some rules must be followed, other rules can be broken, it sounds so arbitrary...but i guess it's true of any society...people are not really rational beings...they follow the crowd and they do things as it's done, rather than think for themselves...

i just happened to come across some of the harsher chinese people, it seems this forum is full of them...they get offended by something you said and omg, all hell breaks loose. it's just if it only happened once or twice, i would not pay it any attention, but it keeps happening....it's just the women though, i actually think the chinese men are a nicer breed here...however, in real life, it is different, i have to say most chinese people, including women, are rather friendly and nice...

Welcome, don't pay much attention to what you hear, just care about you see.
