You guys, I wrote this post especially for you.


Can I speak on their behalf?

OK On behalf of emu et al.:


# We are very sorry for continually criticising China from our armchairs
# We are sorry for criticising the Chinese people for trying to improve their lives the best they do
# We are sorry for comparing China and its peoples to developed countries like USA/UK/EU as we realise they have only started about 20 years ago
# We are sorry for not taking the time to understand the mentality of the Chinese people
# We are sorry for thinking that we know whats best for them even though we know that our own systems have faults
# We are sorry for knocking them when they find pride in what they are good at even though by nature they are quiet and unpretentious
# We are sorry for all the silly comments we have made just to score a few cheap points

#Lastly, we would like to sincerely apologise to changabula, chairman, mengzhi, zglobal, northwest, jetsam, correction, and all others who have been trying to get us to see the light!

Sure you can.
..but I was kinda hoping they would beg forgiveness.


Do you mean that they have to get on their hands and feet?
I don't think that they can stoop so low.

Changabula, if all you did was post articles about China's accomplishments, that would be one thing. Unfortunately, when people react in a way that you find unfavorable, you tend to retort with stupid, childish insults that make you look bad. Also, something to think about--jetsam (AKA flotsam) has been banned at least once by the mods for his over-the-top racist remarks. Just an FYI.
