    A quick “cui bono” could solve most of these cases. Interestingly enough, that phrase was made famous by Cicero when he was dealing with property developers.

      Chinese officialdom doesn’t favor the obvious reasons.

    Please shut down this website if this is the best you guys can do. Pingdingshan is in Henan, spend two seconds checking your post for spelling/grammar errors unless you’re farming this shit out to unemployed gold farmers

    Pingdingshan is my home town, I just don’t know why a reviewer here is so angry about the spelling error. Everybody make mistakes, and by the way, this is a good website on my opinion.

      There are two reasons why some commenters make a big deal about stuff like that. One: this website used to have a different format with full articles and translated top netizen comments. Those were very useful tools for many of us on here and some commenters are disappointed in the more simple format and so they are expressing their anger in this way. Two: If you browse the archives of this site and read the Chinasmack comments, you will find that sometimes some commenters get into very long boring comment strings where they are arguing about the language semantics of their arguments.

        Thanks for you explanation Vance :) There are some guys like to point out other peoples’ spelling mistakes. A few foreigners post there opinions on a Chinese website “Zhihu” (similar to Quora), and there are always some comment strings talking about poster’s character mistake, but without insulting words. You may check that website if you like. :)

        I’m disappointed because with a name like Steve Lambert, I expect an ‘article’ that looks like it was written by a native English speaker and not run through a translator. There’s all kinds of grammar and punctuation errors here and they could be fixed in 30 seconds if someone had even bothered to give the article a second glance before hitting post.

          Yea you know it. Google Translate, the one I use, does not work well at all. It makes it sound like a 5 year old talking. I assume it does the same thing when translating English to Chinese. THe two just don’t translate easily as far as I can tell.
