This forum (dominated by mostly non-Chinese speaking foreigners) has an element of both critics and bashers. I suppose there's a difference between the two.
Critics may give constructive criticisms, while bashers seem to spend most of their time yelling only about how idiotic fellow forumites are or how bad this or that nation is, how terrible the citizens are, the government system, the educational system, the officials, the party, you name it. These so-called "bashers" will argue until the sun goes down. Even when you'd presented facts that crows are black, they will still argue that crows are white.
Oftentimes, I've noticed that they are immature seniors (or seems like), have flawed logic and are quite arrogant. They believe they are superior amongst forumites and find pleasure to offensively display them here, to the extent of ordering Chinese not to post in Chinese!!! - as they can't comprehend articles in Chinese (duh!).
But arrogance is the exact opposite of self-esteem! They are those who truly have low or lack self-confidence.
Sometimes, one can't help but think they might have certain degree of comprehension problem or simply a lunatic.
There's one character in particular who claims to be of European descent and boasts to be very well-versed with the English language. From all its comments, this character hates China so much and looks down to Chinese people, but choose to work here for a meager salary, to the extent of (unrealistically) even be able to buy more than one recesses to nest in! This character fits very much like that of a very low self-esteem 'Filipino immersed with western bourgeois ideology' persona.
A true European with excellent English teaching skills can easily find work here in the capital city and earn twice or thrice its salary.
It is common to hear someone say they're here with an agenda. Probably as puppets of this or that anti-Sino group out to destabilize a government and/or brainwash Chinese people in this forum in exchange for morsels of dog treats. Very pathetic as this may be their only 'talent'. Shame on them!
On the other hand, it's quite entertaining to watch a bunch of bozos make fun of themselves by showing just how ignorant, arrogant and ill-mannered they are.
In stark contrast to cbbs, the forumites there are polite and civilized to each other. No name-calling nor bickering. The reason? So obvious!
