The questions were complied by the organization I am doing the survey for.The point was to keep it simple but it does offer a section on any input + or - that the interviewee could express.Why do you assume wrongly that if a foreigner asks a question that the response must be all sunshine and roses?


I told you why. Any response will be skewed by the appearance of the interviewer. This is basic.
Same with the location. The cross section of people walking around outside SOGO does not represent the Taiwanese population at all - not even close.

Yet another wrong assumption and of course a racist remark.Do Germans carry a suitcase of knockwurst and sauerkraut as one example Hans


Ich bin nicht Deutsch, ich weiss nich.

It has been known, as many of my Taiwanese friends will attest to, that Taiwanese people often do take instant noodles with them abroad. Comfort food and an amusing character trait. A mention of this does not come anywhere near a charge of racism.
Even I take instant noodles back with me occasionally, and that's simply because Taiwanese instant noodles are the best.

Correct as not everyone feels a democracy is the answer to all their dreams and aspirations.Are you a political maven with sufficient knowledge that democracy works all of the time?


I know enough about Taiwan to know that the vast majority do not wish to "return" to China, as you put it - the Republic of China has never been part of China. Also, the ROC was never under communist rule. Nationalism may have similar traits to that of communism, but it is not the same thing.
One does not need to be a political maven to see that democracies don't work all the time, but one does not even need to have basic schooling to know that under communism, millions suffer at the hand of starvation, poverty and authoritarian rule.

Hyperboleigh.

I find your irony and hint of sarcasm uncalled for and irrelevant in the scheme of things.Quite possibly it could be a cover for something less than you think you are


If you had read what I had written in context you'd have realised that I was trying to make a point to another poster on here about how foreigners are largely used and viewed by the media in Taiwan and how foreigners are portrayed by the media. I wasn't labelling foreigners.

Jesus man. People have a different take to you on something and you take it personally? GTFU! You might not have noticed but almost all of us gave some credit to "Shaun" for his efforts. At the same time the OP asked us for our comments and we gave them as honestly as we could. Not much wrong with that.

Now back to my bowl of glass.


By all means everyone is entitled to their opinion but in most cases the manner in which they have been posted are rude,crude,not constructive and in some cases down right racist.Keep in mind WE and that includes ME are the minority and this is OUR adopted home for whatever reasons.The comments also reek of "us vs.them" or the days of colonization when other countries ruled with an authoritativeness about them.


I have no idea what you is on about. Didn't I hear you say you was leaving for taiwanease in the morning? :cool:

I love Taiwan

I usually don't get involved in these things but in this case don't forget your coat now!
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

He came, he saw, he made a hell of a noise, and then, just like that, he was gone...
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
