[Glossika] The glommed up reference thread

Moderators: Tempo Gain, TheGingerMan

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

[2] Letter to Terry Thatcher

Postby Glossika » 09 Nov 2002, 09:49

I post this here, because this message was removed from the Open Forum. Richard Hartzell may be kind enough to allow this post to remain. Other moderators like deleting Glossika's posts.

Terry Thatcher:

1. Terry, this is correct, 雅捷/Glossika is not using this lawyer anymore because he is more specialized in a separate area of law and this was agreed upon by both parties after you received our letter. According to the law, this letter was a 存證信函, not a threat. In case anybody needs clearer information, we have already met with new legal advisors (an attorney and a partner at Lee, Tsai & Partners) who are willing to start, however we have not entered into a formal contract yet.
2. We respect everybody's ideas and comments, however this forum has already become very childish. We have no intention to pay attention to false claims by anonymous writers and we welcome everybody to look at facts before making judgment.
3. 雅捷/Glossika has been under investigation by authorities numerous times already for many months. It was mentioned before, yes anonymous calls can cause this to happen. We have no idea whether this has happened to others (although it is obvious now), but perhaps a third party is involved in setting others up. Again, it is childish. If anything in this forum were true, we would have been closed down long ago.
4. On Friday, November 8, two intruders forced entry into our building at 15:44 and past the security guards with unclear motives, but obviously in an attempt to cause trouble--nobody knew what kind of weapons could have been concealed in their bag. The intruders ran out at approximately 15:55 after running around several floors, taking pictures, and causing mischief. The police quickly arrived on the scene. The police have already identified Terry Thatcher as one of the intruders from the video footage. The police will most likely identify the accompanying man shortly. 雅捷/Glossika proceeded to make a report about this incident and Terry Thatcher's motives for causing 雅捷/Glossika's "downfall". Security is being increased. Terry, what is your alibi from 15:44 to 15:55 on Friday? Good job for a PhD :oops: !

[1] Question about moderators

Postby Glossika » 09 Nov 2002, 12:47

This website and the moderators of the Open Forum and Learning Chinese forum take liberty to change people's postings--the actually content of those postings especially if what you write is against their own opinions.

Please be aware!

If you don't write your message mean enough, they'll help you make it meaner. If you write your message against their own opinions, they will delete it for you or change the contents to match their own opinions. Glossika does not make assumption that Richard Hartzell would do this.

Dear Richard: Do you commend this behaviour? Is this the kind of community you wish to be associated with?

Do you know that Glossika had to post a single message multiple times because it was being deleted every time it was posted? Are the moderators trying to hide something or trying to prevent themselves from losing face for their previous comments?

As Recipient applied for work with Glossika on February 23 but was not accepted becuase of inappropriate qualifications


Glossika and 雅捷 understand by your credentials and experience that you are qualified as an excellent translator


Dear Terry:

Exactly correct. Glossika/雅捷 cut off correspondence with you because we did not need your services. It is true that you have the credentials and experience to qualify as a translator. However, you did not have the qualifications to work for Glossika/雅捷. Glossika/雅捷 does not need to consider anybody who is demanding and uncooperative, as we will consider this person unqualified for the job.

I went to Glossika's office with a friend to visit them and discuss all this


You didn't set up an appointment. And based on your recent comments, all security are looking out for you to come and stir up trouble. We do not understand what you want to discuss: there is nothing to discuss, so no, you cannot have a meeting with us.

but was rudely received by the guard and (apparently) have subsequently been accused of trespassing. I was not aware that entering a public building to visit a company doing business openly was trespassing


The building is not a public building. That's why there are guards. And yes the "physique" and size of you and your friend were very intimidating and the guard was unable to stop you. That is why the police were notified.

Didn't touch anything other than the elevator buttons.


If you were coming for a meeting, then why didn't you knock on the door? And why were you running around all the different floors? You obviously know the address and the phone number well. Did you have second doubts and couldn't face us once you arrived?

crossposting is usually not beneficial


Please consider that you and the other moderators are taking the liberty of deleting posts at will. It took numerous attempts to post the first message titled Letter to Terry Thatcher. If somebody is scared of our response, then please reconsider your initial posts.

[2] Why is the Glossika thread locked?

Postby WHY? » 09 Nov 2002, 13:45

I do not understand why the moderators have decided to lock the Glossika thread. Sure it has had a huge number of hits in the week or so of its existence and 80+ replies. But is that not the goal of websites, to attract viewers and encourage discourse? Most websites would love to have the number of hits that this one thread has received in one week. Sure there are instances of cross posting but that is to be expected. Hell Glossika cross-posted today in 5 or 6 threads. This thread is controversial but it has a purpose whether you agree or not.

Oh yea and it is the OPEN forum which to me implies open not censored. The pet peeves thread has 166 replies and 4170+ views and it is unlocked.

Please do the Segue community a favor and unlock this thread.
