A lack of mutual respect on these forums?   [Copy link] 中文

Today is the first time that I visited this website.

I have never had any really bad experiences in China. People generally have been kind to me. I have always treated people that I met with respect and found that it was possible to develop good relationships. I could learn about Chinese culture and the way that Chinese people think. I could learn about Chinese society, history, the problems in China and the great things. I wish that the atmousphere of this forum was more like the experience that I had when I went to China.

I have to say that this forum gives me a very bad impression. There seems to be a lack of mutual respect between foreigners and Chinese. I am not saying this to criticize Chinese people, there are many strange comments by foreigners too!

Am I alone in this perspective? Do other people think that there should be more mutual respect? Should the moderators be more active in setting the tone for this forum? Should the moderators make comments, rather than just deleting offensive texts?

What do other people think?

  1. What do other people think?

I have to agree with you if only while pondering how many important discussions do not take place because of the flamebaiting and acrimonious exchanges which deflect the course of collective thoughts away from important issues needing critical thinking focus.

CD's loss.  After being here a while, i feel i may regrettably have to leave again.  At my age, it could well be permanent.  Which some may like.  But i have so much to share.

It is sad that the only other person on these forums who cares about this is thinking of leaving.

The guidelines state that the contents of these posts should not damage China’s honor, nor should they use foul language. Neither of these appear to be enforced.

This forum could have been intelligent and polite. It appears to be just another trashy bulletin board, full of comments by foreigners who would be deemed social misfits in their own countries.

If China Daily wants respectable people to visit this site, it really needs cleaning up.

Hmmm ....... !

I think that is the nature of many forums and I am sure that recent action by the CD has shown they are much more likely to take action and improve the situation you have outlined  ..........

I never considered yourself as someone who gets bothered by some of the more extreme members ........

And you always seem to write intelligent and literate items  ........

It will be nice to see you comment more .........

And I hope you do not disappear ........

T ...

Who is thinking of leaving?

And, they are cracking down on foul language, but the members that get caned for it don't like it. Therefore they come back with a ghost rant and rave and start pointing the finger in the wrong directions just to cause conflict. And therefore nasty posts develop.
It is a tough job for the Mod's.

I take my Grandaughter to Nursary school some days and liken it to the non stop noise from the kids there. It's not easy to control
