Just a sample to give you a taste.
The last one is a bit funny, as the headline is subject to different intepretations, if you know what I mean.

Have been travelled to Tibet myself in Lhasa and Shannan or  Lhoka areas, and talked to local Tibetans.
The responses are mostly positive as far as the government is concerned.

They are really peace-loving people, with "attractive" accent -- I do take to their singing-like intonations, be it Tibeten, Chinese or English.

You know what? That's the biggest communication problem between Chinese (may I ask if you are?) and foreigners.

Yes, I admit there are quite a few foreigners who never and will ever think well of China. Thing is there are also many who really love the country.

If you can't stand a tiny bit of criticism, even it is justified, I'm sorry, and I really couldn't do much about that.

People often take things out of context because it does serve their purpose. I did not complain about criticism but just about how you interpreted the mentioned headline. That's all.

The headline did lend to different interpretations and it only ends there for me.
Honi soit qui mal y pense --- it may also apply to those who wielded it first.
