I posted a message in the Taiwan Politics forum that was erased.
Maybe the message wasn’t that polite, but hardly any of the messages in the Taiwan politics forum are polite, and mine was more polite than most. I made a legitimate point and it should not have been destroyed. I just asked a simple question - how many of all the posters whining about racism against Chinese in Taiwan, how many of them have actually set foot in Taiwan?
I made my point and it was a good one. Only two of them admitted that they had ever set foot in Taiwan. None of the rest of them had ever set foot in Taiwan, and I called them out on it. This is a legimate point. If you’re going to constantly post about Taiwan politics and all the “racism” in Taiwan, it might be nice to have actually visited the country. I don’t see why my pointing this out should be cause for removal of my post. Maybe it hurt those posters because the truth hurts the worst. OK, so maybe I wasn’t that diplomatic in pointing out the hypocrisy. So sue me. I obeyed the rules of this site as far as I understand them. I have seen much worse posts allowed to slide by. I didn’t attack anybody in person, I just pointed out a basic bit of hypocrisy - that most of the anti-Taiwan posters in the Taiwan politics forum have never set foot in Taiwan. Somebody had to say it sooner or later.
