I wanted to start a new thread about that. It's a shame, information should be free. Aren't Chinese people protesting against that? They should!

You can’t protest against the communist government. If you do, you will pay the heavy price punishment from the government. The Tiananmen Square protest was the fact of how Chinese goverment did to the Student in 1989

Why was my thread locked in the first place? I read the comments and there didn't seem to be much aggression between the posts aside from the very patriotic. I just got internet back and I was hoping to give my two cents worth.

A lot of Chinese members sent PMs to the moderator asking the thread to be locked.

This is why a lot of countries have changed their way from being a communist to something else. Mongolia, Poland, serpico's country, for examples.

Very strange indeed! What's with this attitude of people not wanting to hear opposing views lately?

Ah, I see. The people who did should be more open to debate unless they have something to hide. Wait a sec, how do you know? Were you one of the members? Hmm...

:lol: :lol: Oh, you, be quiet! Hush your mouth!... I wasn't the one who sent the complain. I sent the PM to Arale asking her why the thread was locked. Happy now?
