i don't know what can help Whampoa, i have no clue who is doing what behind scenes.

i just though ...

Free Toto and Wahahaha …………  ?

Sorry, I cannot vote for that idea because as you rightly say they are free to post under another handle.

I am personally against anyone getting a permanent ban, but I feel that bans are necessary with maybe each ban a longer one than a previous. For instance someone of note was recently banned for a week and maybe the soon upcoming and ensuing ban of that same poster should then be two weeks etc. It certainly didn’t stop that same poster from registering more names and continuing as if little happened.

I am sure that the Mods have issued warnings and these were ignored resulting in what we have today. In fact a poster showed us a warning just recently that he had privately received because he felt aggrieved with that same warning. Therefore, the resultant responsibility may to some degree lie with the posters themselves.

With regards to Toto I feel that if you don’t like his posted articles then just ignore them, and indeed there are some here who welcome his posts. I for one have read many of the articles he has posted and I enjoy the ‘Korrupt’ way that he uses the language as it can be fun, but I do feel that calling whole races ‘slug-brained’ etc (even if it were true) is way over the top and not necessary and in-line with breaking forum rules. I believe that Toto has the ability to use the language in a much more subtle manner to achieve a similar result, therefore the former abuse is unnecessary.

Wahahaha does not need to use the language that he can be known for in the first place as he is intelligent enough to discuss without it. I sense a certain frustration though that the insults get out of hand and then it becomes a fight. It just seems that his abuse has a more abundant approach when it comes to expletives. That basically will lead to a ban in any forum.

For my part although I will not vote here, but I would welcome both members back, both Toto and Wahahaha on the basis that they have ability and aptitude and need not to have placed themselves in this position in the first place.  Any forum has to have rules and they should be seen to work across the board. As a note here I would say that it is the duty of members to report anyone who is looking to ratchet up into a lexically off-coloured wrestling match that is off topic and abuse. I am sure the Mods will listen but if you are part of that same cycle then you cannot call the ‘higher ground’. Also I do not believe the Mods look at every thread or post as it would be too time consuming and indeed whatever for? If the members cannot keep their own house clean, then they are also part of the problem and not the solution.

I feel that the Mods might have done better in letting the forum members know that a member has been warned rather than just telling us post execution. To that extent it might be better if the Mods had a thread entitled ‘Latest Warnings’ telling us who is in breach of the rules and why.  It might well cause lively debate but warnings and bans are still at the discretion of the Mods and if one doesn’t like it or accept it then that is unfortunate as that is the ‘nature of the beast’.

So Smithi ………….

What about a thread  ………..

Should Toto and Wahahaha be allowed back under their old handles  ………….

With some of the above provisos I vote ‘yes’ ……….

What i saw of those two they were persistently racist and wouldn't moderate themselves.  They didn't get banned or even reported on my account but i can see why others took a different view.

For your info ive never had any communication at all with CD and dont want any.  But China and this China forum isn't best served by a few non-Chinese racists.

If the forum ceased to exist what would it matter to them ?  Diddly squat.
