That is your definition for contributions, who cares?
You definitely do not want to see that Aussies' drug problem to be discussed
by Asia ppl. I can fully understand your position.
You are wrong this time. If you check my post more seriesly, it was not
cross posted from 'rec.sport.swimming' to Asian cultural
NG. It is other way around. It was posted in the Asian cultural group
then I cross-posted to the 'rec.sport.swimming'. I read this news from
the Asian cultural NG. I thought my original
post already meant that, but you did not get it. I do think since there
were so many ppl jointed the Chinese doping cases in 'rec.sport.swimming',
this time they like to discuss this new doping case too. You may think
this is not logical.
>I can only assume that he is hoping to generate a large number of (often
>pointless and offensive) arguments.
Every one hope many ppl to join the discussion he is doing, what is wrong?
If my memory serves me, I do not think it was Chinese who started the
Chinese doping cases in 'rec.sport.swimming', am I right? You definitely
do not think the guy who started those threads was trying to "generate a
large number of (often pointless and offensive) arguments", right?
That is what we called double standards.
>This is both BORING as well as IRRITATING!
I never try to satisfy every one. You never think your post could be
both BORING as well as IRRITATING to others, right? I still think this
NG group is free speech place. I will try my best to not use any dirty,
name calling labeling tactics in the discussion. That is all I will do, but
not someone think my post is "both BORING as well as IRRITATING". I do
see some ppl are discussing in this thread, I am happy with that.

You are free to do that. I do that often. That is why this technique was
designed in first place. Let other ppl discussing in the threads they
are interested but is boring to you? I do not understand why you have
the problem with that? As I said, I do that often.
Have a nice day!
