I love 99.9% of our readers and loathe the other one percent. That other one percent consists pretty much of two people whose comments I get just about every day and whose comments I always delete.
One of these people constantly complains about our lack of India coverage and attributes this to my disliking Indians. This guy (I assume it is a guy) for some reason cannot seem to understand that this is a blog about China law, not about India. Dude, if you want more on India, I suggest you start your own blog on just India.
The other person is always leaving comments completely irrelevant to the post, attacking us for ignoring the horrible things Chinese people do every day. This person believes that whenever someone in China does something horrible (like shoot kindergartners) I should use that as an opportunity to write about the decline of Chinese society caused by an economy that subjugates them (his language, not mine) and that my failure to write on these things means I am complicit with and beholden to the Chinese government I once wrote a calm and somewhat rational email to the email address this person uses on his (again, I assume it is a male) comments, but — no surprise — his email address turned out to be fake. I just got a comment from him today, pointing out my cowardice for having failed to report about on how the son of some Chinese government apparatchik somewhere had mowed down a college student with his car.
I do not write about such things because though I find them incredibly interesting from a psychological perspective (I was for many years addicted to true crime books), I do not think they provide any insight into China and I do not myself have any real insight to provide on such incidents either. China has 1.3 billion people and that means that it will produce a number of horrible people who do horrible things. I just figure that all of our readers fully understand that and do not need some lawyer telling them that.
I don’t know what else to say…..
