I just signed up at Opine-It.com. While I was registering I was annoyed to discover that in the country list Taiwan was listed as “Taiwan (Province of China)”.
I wrote an email to the webmaster, Kris Moore, complaining about it. I explained that it should be ‘Taiwan, R.O.C.’ as this is how Taiwan officially refers to itself. I gave a link to the Taiwan government information office’s website and asked him to correct the error.
Result: I got an email several hours later saying that it had been changed to ‘Taiwan (Republic of China)’. The guy said that he had just copied the country list of another site.
If you come across sites like this, write them an email to complain. I recommend NOT going into great detail about the historical background of Taiwan-China relations. Just point out that it is an error that needs correcting and you’re more likely to get a result.
[Mods, I wasn’t sure where to post this so please feel free to move it if needed.]
