Cannot understand the issue?

Since you seem clueless take a look at my blog with the same title and OP. See the comments there from those who know the Chinese and mainland more than you do.perhaps it will become clearer to you.

Here in UK, Indians are perceived as Yes people.......I hate racial stereotypes but hmmm

Why this obsession with Chinese people? Who told you Chinese people are not assertive? Ask a Korea,  ...

"Why reivent bread"

Good point - basically because Klyer has absolutely no clue and probably very little experience of knowing Chinese people well and / or living in their country. The usual purpose of his rants is to come up with anything which can be tangentially used to criticise "western" countries and their cultures, such as his idiotic insistence that Americans be called USAnians.

A good example is Klyer's introduction to this thread. He asks for the proposition that Chinese are insufficiently assertive to be proved by "statistics" yet he provides none of these himself and it is inevitable that the whole topic can only be discussed in subjective terms. How could credible statistical evidence ever be gathered about a subjective aspect of each individual's personality when collectively all of those individuals form the most populous nation on earth ?

You are being tautological. Now address the issue raised by Mr Seneca and stop hiding behind shadows

i have always found Chinese people to be assertive. You must not underestimate the role language might play in some circumstances but generally, definitely assertive in my book
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

  1. Most will take the initiative in starting a thread, or putting forth an idea or proposition. If the forum is a Western owned one, many will make use of the 'home turf' advantage to remind 'outsiders' to conduct themselves according to rules of the 'guest'

Wrong. Maybe Chinese people are sensible and see little point in putting forth meaningless 'opinions' that will not further the sum of human knowledge.

Why should they bog themselves down in "western' folly of arguing every single point and ruining the atmosphere as my Japanese friends calls it.

You don't seem to understand Asia and the Chinese you seem to be keen to defend but is under the cosh by you now. See what I told you a few days ago, I am a friend of the Chinese. You come as lamb but are in fact an hyena!
