I was debating some Asian Americans over at a site called ‘Yellow World’, a site that seems to be mostly dominated by Korean Americans, as far as I can see, with Chinese Americans coming second. As usual, I was polite but firm in the debate. I was doing quite well, presenting evidence and making convincing arguments. However, a moment ago I tried to log in and got this message.
The funny thing is that I was the only person there that was behaving with good forum manners. All the others there were attacking me in a personal sense, and seemed to have an unhealthy interest in the idea that I might be having sex with ‘their’ women.
I am not going to go into this too much or waste too much words on these people but I will say this. The posters and the moderators there are childish, unintellectual and cannot handle themselves in a real debate. When they are losing the debate they give in to a totalitarian impulse to try to punish the messenger by banning him. Yellow World is representative of the sorry state of Asian American forums. Jodi from The Asia Pages had a run in with another Asian American forum that bans people that are able to beat them in debate.
Anyway, enough of wasting words on them. Go and check it out for yourself. I was posting there under my pseudonym, ‘shakuhachi’.
