I say, "Yes".
I found China Daily Forum only recently and was hopeful that it be a forum where one could find gracious and thoughtful, if sometimes controversial, communication and exchanges of ideas and information between people from China and other nations. Such exchange, while always beneficial, is more and more important because of China’s changing presence in the world community.|
I believe this Forum has the potential to be one ground for such exchanges. It seems natural that people with an interest in Chinese and world affairs and an interest in communication among the people of China and people from other nations would read China Daily and participate in its forums, including the Friendship, Love, Relationships and English Study Forums.
China Daily Forum has disappointed me that hope principally because of your repetitive, annoying and tiresome posts. This post, “Should I Leave China Daily? Do You Want Me To Go Away?”, is representative. It begins with an attack against others who have challenged you and disagreed with other posts you have made. As is typical of your responses, you assert that they are “obviously immature and mentally diseased”. I have not read all of your other posts, but in the ones I have read, your attacks against those who have challenged you or disagreed with you included statements such as “stupid farm girl”, that one person’s English was not good enough to discuss the matter at hand, “duck-eater” and the list could go on and on.
Further, it appears to me you imagine yourself to be the savior of China and, particularly, the savior of its women, from the rest of the world, especially the United States. Typical of that delusion are your canned posts attacking any non-Chinese male or Chinese female who would express an interest in a romantic relationship with the other. To you, it seems, all such men are sexual predators or perverts and all such woman stupid, or worse (although I did notice that after a personal consultation with you, you deemed lisabj perhaps to be okay – how fortunate is she to have gained your personal approval of her life). Likewise typical is this post and your “threats” to leave China Daily and deprive us all of your unequaled “insights into various love and relationship problems”, to discontinue your work on an English language website (there already is one on CD called “English Study”, by the way) and your articles on “everything from job dissatisfaction to how to develop confidence”. Your posts continually allege your great wisdom, education and insight and how you have, in your view, helped so many Chinese people.
First, I hardly think China needs you to save her. She appears to have quite capable leadership and has managed to survive for quite some time now without you. I am also convinced that the women of China do not need you to defend and save them. From what I see, read and hear, they are also quite capable of handling that task themselves. I recently read that there about 900 million Chinese involved in agriculture. I suspect that among that number there are at least a few million “farm girls” (who also may eat duck and who may not speak English at all) who, in terms of intelligence, insight and thinking, not to mention grace, manners and common human decency and understanding, would make you look like a puppy.
I think also that your “insights” into relationships and other problems are not nearly as wonderfully insightful and helpful as you imagine them to be. If you truly are as magnificent as you would have us believe, I find it unimaginable that you are not one of China’s national leaders or, at the least, a renowned psychologist or psychiatrist, rather than one who appears to have a no more useful occupation than filling China Daily Forum with his drivel.
I view your “threats” to leave CD as nothing more than what I see much of what you post to be – self-aggrandizement and pandering for approval and acceptance, particularly, it appears, from Chinese women. If you are convinced that you have such invaluable “insight” and “help” to give, why don’t you spend a few dollars to start your own website and let those who wish to be your followers elect to do so, instead of imposing yourself upon the unwilling who would like to put China Daily Forum to better use.
We would all, I believe, be better spared your “insight” and “help”. I say that, in part, because I find your words and your conduct to be a deplorable representation of what American men are truly like and because I believe your attempts to dominate China Daily Forum, your childish, egotistical and self-serving personal attacks on anyone who would dares to disagree with you and your gross misrepresentation of foreign men and Chinese women (among others) discourages the honest, open, thoughtful, intellectual and friendly exchange of friendship, understanding, opinion, insight, culture and information. How few people looking for such an exchange would even attempt it in China Daily Forum after reading even a few of your posts and the responses they elicit.
In my opinion, the greatest contribution you could make to China Daily Forum would be your complete and permanent absence from it.
