My name is Andre and I have been posting occasionally and lurking more than occasionally on these boards for maybe 4 months. I've read reams and reams about the things you guys have posted on Taiwan. Now that I am here, and have been here for about a month I realize how helpfull so much of this stuff has been to my understanding of how Taiwanese society works (and dosen't work), how I should act in differnt sitations, where to go, what to do, what not to do... The list is endless.
Anyway, I guess I want to say that your huge user-created tome of information has been really really helpfull, so thankyou
p.s. I particularly loved the thread about shocking Taiwanese t.shirts. I have found a few entrants myself. That thread kept me lagughing for HOURS on end. And also, as far as strange things at Ximending go I have spotted the Celestial wannabe guy (I was beyond surprised), but have yet to locate the strange cat-man. And no, I didn't take the Celestial's medicine.
