Re: This forum is awesome!

I was just glancing through the page of the forum in the general section, when I noticed some significant data. From 3rd of March to date one post has been viewed over 37000 times, I think it's the diamond post, also the INdia girls post rakes in over 20000 views. Though not many replies! The FP th...

I don't swing at it often but I connect and knock it outta the park when I do. :cool: SMS, are you reaching midlife crisis? It's not like you to be heavy handed for nothing. Don't worry about the sensitive issues we tread on in the FP thread. Most people will look up to you for allowing us to discu...

Ah ah, now I can see many long winded posts what a relief! :lol: This maybe a good time to remind Anne too, that she is being monitored on her remarks by political alien Countries. :roll: :lol: It's understandable that there is a reaction, but if one looks deeper into the cultural aspects, they wil...

People are the same all over the world, we all have feelings and opinions. Wheather or not we expressed them or how we do it is another thing. Well said, EF. This forum is a very good example of that, and quite a lesson in social psychology actually. I'm not sure what is worse: posters who virtuall...

Re: Filial Piety Revisited

Ladies and gentlemen, the quote below was what I believed started all this shi--- er, I mean nonsense. But FP is unheard of in the West where the individual reigns supreme, even within the family structure. With the current crisis on pensions, annuities and other financial shortfalls faced by the r...

[:) Perhaps you can understand that Tyianchang finds this forum frustrating and schizophrenic too... that posters here hold themselves up as models of good manners, but then proceed to call her names and make unprovoked, snide remarks about her to each other. In my opinion what happened here border...

Angela Merkel has ordered the closing down of 7 nuclear reactors, some critics say, in time for the coming elections in the green belt of Germany. But , considering that most other countires are new reviewing their nuclear power plants and looking at viable renewable energy alternatives, will they b...

The number of posters who use that name and aunty batty etc - you condone them? I stand for my statement. Is it not noticed by many that local OPs are often banned and locked out when they make justified protests while you engage in vitriolic retaliation? I've read through them but as the Op died o...

Lastly, I'm not Annie and we recognise persistent personal insults with delberate misuse of names as racist. This, unfortunately, reflects on you more than anything else. It all begins with self-respect and there're thousands of enlightened people reading this forum so do yourself a service. LOL An...

Interesting how the tone of the thread has shifted from "we have as much filial piety as the Chinese" to "the filial piety of the Chinese is repulsive" all because of a news article. "All because of a news article"? I would have thought it was because of the inconceivable behaviour of the people wh...

But they are claiming they should have had more compensation *because* due to filial peity they lost more MONEY than other parents... Can you really not see just how descpicable that is? Did they actually use the phrase ' due to filial piety' or due to the 'one child policy'? I don't see FP being m...

I'm afraid you've missed k1w1's point completely tyianchang :roll: I think perhaps it is this disassociation that got you into hot water in the first place. If you could just extend your thought processes to accommodate other perspectives (your opening, original post stating that filial piety was u...

Sadly I believe they are underestimating the dead deliberately! A quake that can screw the nuclear plant's is one bad quake, the whole island shifted 2.8 meters apparently, That would indicate millions of people being thrown around. Though just on the east coast must be millions of people. I hate t...
