Just glad to be on White's most wanted list.

East met west on this forum and the conclusion is this: neither like the other much.

An excellent and timely thread, expatter and I agree that if the published forum rules and only the published forum rules were enforced without fear or favour, then this forum would be a much better place to be.

Now, to one example of the lies to which we western contributors are constantly subject.

"emucentral" aussie bumpkin was a professor or teacher who once travelled to china for temporary teaching only have a backward and hurtful response. ...


Where the heck did "whitedoves" get this rubbish ?

For the record;

I (Emucentral) am not and have never been employed as a teacher or professor.
I work in the media industry, for a very small company which makes documentaries and corporate videos.

I have visited Hong Kong 3 times, Macau twice, and have done a short "day tour" to Guangzhou (from HK).
(EDIT) Since I now read that Whitedoves hasn't actually been to mainland China, I feel that I am more qualified to comment than Whitedoves is !

I like Chinese food and Jackie Chan movies (especially the older original HK ones in Cantonese)

I get along well with people from all backgrounds and religious and racial groups.

I look forward to the people of China enjoying the same freedoms of expression, ability to travel, and personal liberty that the whinger "whitedoves" currently enjoys, living here in Australia.

It's a pity that many forumers like John B of Melbourne (emu) had initially started well in this board but eventually succumbs to hostility and air of mistrust and joins in the mud-slinging.  


Dear Taikor,

When one is constantly subject to the abuse, lies, slander and diversions from topic which we see from the likes of Changabula, Buddy, Tong, GoToHell and even Mengzhi and Northwest, then one loses ones tolerance of misbehaviour very quickly.

I am quite capable of engaging in polite and reasoned debate, but I am quite happy also to respond with the same respect accorded to me.

Cheers
JB

So here we are talking about the lies and bulldist directed at Westerners by the ignorant and the xenophobic, and the village idiot goes ahead and gives us a perfect example of the slander we're subject to.

As others have already pointed out, I said no such thing about fellow forumite Chairman.

I certainly have my disagreements with the elder-statesman of this forum, and his somewhat contrary take on various issues, but we've managed to maintain a certain civility of discourse.
Something CarkingHK unfortunately seems unable to do.
