Thank you so much for sharing. It’s very funny and meaningful

I agree with you, and I like the originality of expatter's story.

I was a little disappointed today that I bumped into another thread which I initially mistaken to be expatter's thread only to realise that it was an IMITATION piece from seneca with a very similar title.  More disappointing was the standard or lack of it which our id iotic mods uphold by placing IMITATION post on par with ORIGINALITY.

You may read my comments which clearly express my disappointment and my heartfelt condolences to those being chosen "best". {:soso_e109:}

Thank you for your kind comment about my little parody of an ordinary day in Beijing .........   

I believe there is a certain amount of 'flattery' involved when one would copy another and so I was not too bothered about that factor, as after all 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery' .........

But something much greater came out of this, and to that end I did prepare a much more in depth character analysis of our fellow poster seneca from his own most intimate tribulations   .........   

The only problem at the moment is that there is a new moderation filter in existence which even the Mods have apologized for and promised to look into ........

Sometimes when one tries to post even the most innocuous post one gets a little black box which states 'negative post' .........

Oh  ........  !

Come, come Mods  ........

I would never be negative about seneca  ...........     

And hopefully I will be able to post it soon ..........

Might be interesting with all that cited information supplied by that very same source  .........
