It’s been almost two years now, and quite frankly F.com has become tiresome.
The usual suspects will post a rah-rah-America thread, and the other usual suspects will post an America-the-great-Satan response.
A Canadian college student will regergitate the tired old Liberal Party line about Canada being the best country in the world, sincerely believing it because he’s still living in his parents’ basement and has never experienced the world, nor what it has to offer.
Those who have been here most of their adult lives will continue to write about all the things their Taiwanese spouses do that annoy them, and give themselves airs of superiority over those lesser beings who cannot read Shao Yong in the original Mandarin.
Some newbie will ask the same visa question that’s been asked nine times since yesterday.
All threads will be replete with childish playground arguments, one-upmanship, and one line zingers, all meant to put the other in his place so the poster can feel good about himself.
Even threads where people ask for help contain such banalities.
A brand new day. Same old posts. Same old Forumosa.
As the saying goes, if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. What has Dr_Zoidberg done to be part of the solution? Nothing! He’s easily sucked into all of it because he has an opinion on everything and won’t keep his yap shut.
He did organize a happy hour in Taichung, but that required importing people from Chiayi and Taipei to shore up the numbers. Nevertheless, as the Grand Poobah of the Taichung Social Club he will continue to organize events for the community in Taichung County, even if he is the only one who attends. That is what he is going to do to be part of the solution.
Now it’s up to the powers that be to kindly approve his new account name Taichung Social Club, the name under which he will organize events for the community (foreign and local).
Dr_Zoidberg bids you all adieu.
