This very thread: page1, post #5, read it carefully,|
I am the oldest active member in the forum.
At one time, I was the top-name of CD's selected 'Forum Columnists', when we were just getting launched, unlike now; I actually wrote articles for the forum then and we drew-in folks from all over the world, economists, big shots, CIA operatives, Presidential campaign managers, etc. We dealt with a lot of nasty sexual perverts as well -- sometimes we had our hands full with them. CD was getting a lot of attention, China was still a very unknown entity to the world and we were a huge prominent non-governmental voice, we dealt with all sorts of folks back then. We finally drew the attention of the Islamic fundamentalists and crazies who then proceeded to camp-out, destroying our very nature -- chairman, despite his energy and wchao37 being so self-centered and I, just couldn't stop them, we were eventually overwhelmed! But we also drew-in more and more of the world, our efforts at especially trying to encourage the Chinese themselves, until we have this diverse mishmash of today -- still with the camped-out crazies and the determined Islamic front, however. I guess that makes me also the historian.
