Conclusion

Thanks to the last 3 guys that replied, Flick, Isieh and in part Kategelan. A honorable mention to rooftop.

I got the info I wanted, fortunately I did not only rely on this forum for some info. If anyone else wants to know, feel free to drop me a line. As for the assumptions I'm making they may be wrong Kategelan, but I'm not lashing at those people, I'm lashing at their reaction to a simple question. It feels to me like the post went something like this

Mr. A:Where can I buy a hat?
Mr. B: Why do you need a hat?
Mr. C: Hats are stupid
Mr. D: I bet you don't need a hat and you probably have a black suit. I hate people with black suits because they don't belong in the tree...
...etc..etc do you catch my drift??

I'm pretty sure that those who know you will appreciate your support but it does not improve the impression they left on me. They clearly expressed their views which were mostly hostile on an issue that wasn't there to start with. I wonder if thats how some of these people trully feel about these issues? I wonder if I ever met some of these people face-on, would they have said the same things or if a faceless web-persona too comfortable to hide behind?

Senior member, Moderator or newbie, respect is earned. Not by lame attempts at intelligent remarks but rather useful advice that has practical application. Thanks to those that really did try to help, Kategelan thanks for shedding some light onto the situation but there's no need to understand me and slap my wrist just in case someone is looking. Make your statement and be happy with it. I made mine and I'll live with it.

Indeed it is. And not by shirking your responsibilities.

Wow really pissed aren't you. I am sorry I make you feel that way, so now you have a DISLIKE for GAY people too?

Gay people? I don't know any gay people who are limp-wristed panty-waist girly-boys. Only you, and you never said you were gay. Anyway, advice: why don't you just eat like a pig until you're too fat to serve? That's a pretty common thing for the weasels to do. Of course, you might do permanent damage to your health, but draft-dodgers are pretty worthless creatures anyway, so it would be no great loss.

blah blah blah blah blah :noway:

I'm not seeking your respect, sweetbuns -- it's worthless. And yes, bowbeating draft-dodging weasels who refuse to live up to their civic duty is indeed pro-Taiwan.

Well them I'm not far off; taking the piss out of an arrogant-si-lao-wai-here-for-a-easy-ride means I'm doing mine, besides I'm going on my trip now. See ya old man, don't let a flaky skin and wasting what precious time you have left on this forum get to ya.

rooftop wrote:Guys, Naruto is asking a question, a request for information. He's not that acquainted with Forumosa and he's also missing the humour or sarcasm as indicated by smileys ( :wink: ). But, COME ON! Why are you being so hard on the guy?

He's Taiwanese but holds the passport to another country, so he can avoid the draft. I'd take advantage of that. Wouldn't you? Forumosa is a great place to get information and also a great place to have battle royales. But, does one necessarily have devolve into the other? Poor guy is getting the wrath of people who don't like the way the Taiwanese government makes it hard for long-timers to have full rights here. It isn't his fault.

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? :angel: :lol:

Hey Mr. Voice of Reason, did you walk into the wrong room? :cool:
Trillian: You idiot! You signed the order to destroy Earth!
Zaphod: I did?
Arthur: He did?
Trillian: Love and kisses Zaphod? You didn't even read it, did you?
Zaphod: Well, I'm president, I don't have a lot of time for reading.
Trillian: My whole planet destroyed because you thought someone wanted your autograph!
