Has anyone else had much experience emailing with penpals in China? How did you meet them? And how has the correspondence gone? Smoothly? Friendly? Angry at times?
Reason I ask is I have been corresponding with two people in China over the years, college students, and both times, whenever I mention that Taiwan is a separate country, they go all ballistic and crazy and irrational. The first one said: if you continue to cal Taiwan a separate country then you are NOT welcome to visit Beijing for the Olympics in 2008!
Another guy wrote, when I said Taiwan aint a bad country, all things considered, that not only was Taiwan not a country, but that MIGHT MAKES RIGHT. And when I said to him, do you really believe MIGHT MAKES RIGHT, he stopped corresponding with me.
I met both of these people on my own initiative via chateooms there. Do you think they were just cyber spies or just real pissed off Young Nationalist Fascists?
