Aside from sandman's fixation with beasts of burden, 2/3 of forumosa is probably naked right now.

The great thing about MSN is that you can block people you don't like, or simply not use it.

She's full of shit.

Not use it? Not USE it? But godammit, woman! It's THERE! Where else is a bitter and jaded 20-something Taiwanese lass to refuse offers of language exchange? You think today's young folks are going to want to refuse to peruse the Shi-Da bulletin board when they can do their scathing online, in the comfort of their own shoebox bedsit, fully clad and wearing a balaclava?

Honestly, I worry about the female youth of today. A bit of online scathing is great, but how will they cope in the real world? Where will she be when she's 35 and functionally incapable of scathing in a keyboard-free scenario? Bill Gates has a lot to answer for.

No, I'm an editor for books, and I'm also writing freelance. I spend 12 hours a day in front of a screen, at least. Not looking for 'dates', no MSN - I just sign on at the weekend to catch up with Taiwanese friends - Brits my age don't use MSN, really. You spend a fair bit of time checking your own thread yourself ...

you are right, how pathetic I am today, am going to bed :sleepy: :sleepy: :sleepy:



Not at all - everyone does lame stuff in their downtime: TV, internet, shopping, whatever unproductive blah - that's why it's called downtime. Have a good one.

What I saw in this news was the girl accused something about her pictures and video took by this Da Vei, she was afraid the pictures would be posted on some website , or even worse
(In the news, I didn't see she asked for money)

No matter what Da Vie did, how many girls he dated, he shouldn't take these pictures , really, you know? boys,

Even this girl is just a student, she maybe has no money, has no power , but you should know that

Revenge from a woman (no matter which courntry she comes from)can be very very scary ....


:fume: :fume:


Anna,

Thanks for keeping us updated and sharing your opinion with us.

But, honestly, why did she allow him to take pictures of her in the first place? She barely knew him. :loco:

And why the part about revenge? Why does she want to take revenge for something they were both stupid enough to do? Maybe I'm missing something here, but this whole debacle make them both look foolish.
