From A Mountain-Top In Kinmen...

It is of interest to me how much further value I can obtain from writing to the Taipei Times - they have clearly put me in their "Dislike Intensely" box quite some time ago, and anything I write to them must surely have only a 50% chance (or less) of being published. The blog allows me to keep score however - it's just a question of figuring out the best way of drawing a wider audience without throwing myself upon the torture of a facebook rack. Twitter is the obvious alternative but it has some of the same problems. The other alternative is to man the comments sections of Taiwanese blogs and challenge them, which will likely be seen as an enormous faux pas given certain generally accepted assumptions ("when in rome..." etc). Oh well.

1) Be aware that your right to say what you want is circumscribed by my right of ownership here.

2) Make your comments relevant to the post to which they are attached.

3) Be careful what you presume: always be prepared to evince your point with logic and/or facts.

4) Do not transgress Blogger's rules regarding content, i.e. do not express hatred for other people on account of their ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation or nationality.

5) Remember that only the best are prepared to concede, and only the worst are prepared to smear.
