Any foreign Triad experts back in Taiwan?
There's quite a few on Japanese yakuza but this guy, Jake Adelstein, seems to be the biggest self-promoter out in cyberspace. Claimed the yakuza were out to kill him when he published his book a few years ago, but nevertheless remained in Tokyo.

Judging from the forum
I picked up the link, the subject is a notorious troll who constantly self-googles himself. Cue him in to register on this site and post some vitriolic criticism within a few days or weeks.
