Oddly Enough I approve of this action. Even if it is blatantly selective justice.

Also, it turns out I will be going back to China this Summer. So yeah...

That is far too south for where I am going. I'm heading up north to Dalian.

How's the smog there? I may have asked this before, oh well, asking it again. I keep seeing worse and worse images of urban smog in China.
One of the hallmarks of freedom is that when you recognize someone is being intellectually dishonest or arguing with you in bad faith, you have the option to walk away without being punished, imprisoned or tortured.

Horrible in Beijing and Xi'an. Tolerable in other places like Shanghai and Nanjing. The further south you go the less there is. Guangzhou is actually quite nice (also pretty nice as a city in general). I will be going to work for a company that deals with green tech, in fact.
