  I would say the server of this website often hits snags.  Sometimes I even have trouble logging in; once I got a tip saying the website you are visiting is out of whack. I have had similar experiences on my  visits to other websites..

As to seneca. Yeah, he is a cynic who gets the bang out of hitting out at the seamy side of China.  I don't agree with him  on some issues related to China as well.  Yet  that doesn't mean he is not a good person in reality. I think we really don't have to make a point of roasting each other for our different opinions on the same issue.

  Believe it or not, it would be naive to think that foreigners who simply laud China or North Korea are upstanding people, whereas people who tend to find fault with all the social problems you find in China are licentious, irreverent and troublesome sorts.

  This is just a forum where people compare notes and learn more about Chinese culture. We don't really have to get personal. If you don't agree with someone statement, just point it out. There is no need to utter snide remarks designed to denigrate your detractors.

  I have been derided by at least several outspoken guys here  before, and I  also have also uttered in-your-face or even holier-than-thou utterances in the last two months. Worst of all, I was reported twice by someone here  to boot, receiving some alerts telling me not to bully the snitch in question.

  Guess what? it was that snitch who resorted to name-calling first, and I had to strike back in a bid to show him that it would be lunacy for him to make light of me, someone who is much younger than him.

  I admit that I take seneca as a friend, albeit he is not a China-lover.  I side with China on many issues, you know. For all our differences, I still think that you just can't get suckered into believing that foreigners singing the praises of China are friends of  China and foreigners castigating China are truly foes.

  You are Chinese, so you must know that famous Chinese saying 口蜜腹剑.  Having said that, I think it would be more acceptable for nit-pickers  to do justice to the Chinese or Chinese culture. Above all, a densely populated nation like China that still has billions of cash-strapped peasants, it's really a thankless job for China's leaders to tackle all the problematic issues. it just takes time.

the words leaders and thankless job don't belong together.

It is the most lucrative job in the most populated country in the world.



I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

  The world leaders? Including the former President  George Bush? Do you call him a leader?  Do you think he would have  done better job  had he been China's president? It would have been worse. He would have been a president whose only dictinctive feature was his smiling or boylish-looking face.

  You or me could have done better than him. After all, we all know how to smile.:loveliness::loveliness:
