Why do non PRC Chinese interfere with Taiwan?

There are many "Chinese" members of this forum that don't live in China, or even never had PRC citizenship. Yet they feel they can comment on it as much as they like. That is certainly no better than the US commenting on Taiwan.

So why you a briton concerned so much about us? Why don't you comment on such issue as Ireland instead of China's.

Why would I come to a Chinese forum to talk about Ireland? I have always been puzzled that so many "Chinese" posters spend most of their time here talking about things happening in countries other than China.

The answer is obvious. I am interested in China and want to discuss issues with Chinese people. This forum is in English and welcomes foreigners. If you don't like that complain to the moderators and demand they close it off to non-mainland IPs.

It's because they have historical link with China. The same thing doesn't apply to you. You, a puzzled briton interested in China's unification debated? Now it's really puzzled me.

Yes, I must admit the moderator tolerate too much some people here. A briton with insulting attitude toward China's historical figure still allowed to make comments in this forum.


Seems I have to change my support on Beckham because of this...

What does that have to do with them spending most of their time talking about NON-Chinese issues when they don't have a link to that country in question?

As I said, then you should get the mods to change this to a Chinese-only forum and block non-PRC IPs. Of course that would screw over the overseas Chinese.

Well they allow posts that are insulting towards various ethnicities and nationalities. What makes you think they would care about an avatar like mine?

This is similar to the invasion of Tibet by the Anglos who forced the local Tibetans to trade without consulting China's central government. This is all in violation of international law and the "One China" policy which the US has signed up to. ...


Hey Flotty, in what year did the "Anglos" allegedly invade Tibet and force this trade?
Please also tell us in which year the "One China Policy" became a "law" which could be violated.
