I'm just curious who comprises this forum. It didn't occur to me immediately, but it is all about China, yet we speak mostly English.

I'm guessing it is mostly folks of Chinese descent or other folks who have interest in China for one reason or another.

I'm North American, and met a Chinese woman. I came here to learn more about her land and her culture.

What is YOUR story?

OK, I added that option.

I didn't include it originally, as I figured they wouldn't bother with an English language forum. You're right though, I shouldn't presume!

The forumites are from all over the world.

They are Russians,  Americans, Indians, Britons, Australians, Germans, Pakistanis, Greeks, etc. and other who wouldn't like to let people know their nationality. They stay here for different reasons. Some are expats; some have business in China; some are curious about Chinese cultures; some got married with Chinese; some fall in love with Chinese; some are going to visit China; some are overseas Chinese or ethnic Chinese who care about China etc.

Did some say Litmus?  Is this thread base or acid?

On a more serious tone - this question does crop up from time to time at the China Daily BBS, with various answers over the years (before, during, and after the spy card era).  Truth?  A really good place to do this poll would be in the Chinese Language Forums.
