    There's one in HK... golden forum (ask your wife). It's also impossible to edit your own posts.

    People have literally been arrested based on what they wrote.

    Personally I love the concept. But I did edit this post to add that

    This is history repeating itself over and over again, tyranny of the majority. The minorities (HKers) will have to cater to the majority either by assimilation, or be destroyed. The mainlanders only want our high quality products, and uses us a a financial mediary between the rest of the world, same thing with Macau and Taiwan. That is why Hong Kong and Macau will always have their currency and will never be linked with the RMB.

    You don't have to worry about assimilation. With half the births in Hong Kong coming from mainland women, in 20 years there will be hundreds of thousands of mainlanders coming to Hong Kong (with HKID's), most likely with a lower education level, and neither fluent in Cantonese nor English. They will likely come with wives in tow and demand welfare and services also. This is the future - forced assimilation.
    A welfare burden-why HK people are pissed.

    You're pretty outspoken and opinionated so you can expect to have loads of your outbursts deleted, I know this from personal experience

    I think I've reported 3 or 4.....one example was where a 16 year old girl came on looking to meet people and one of the regulars immediately asked her if she put out. That's f&cked and it needed to be deleted.

    Hmm....how would you know she really was 16?

    On Expat Singapore forum (not to be confused with the much more easygoing and helpful Singapore expats), while it is moderated (and the moderator definitely has mates who say what they like and get left alone) you can post without registering. There are some absolutely dreadful people on there and newbies just get torn to pieces for asking the simplest of questions.

    The difference in population will indicate that bryant-english and packy crusher is right in the sense that it is only a matter of time before HK gets assimilated entirely.

    BUT, it is important to remember that things are not always as they seem. The Tibetans and Uighurs have been in China since 1949, yet substantial population still resist Chinese rule, to no avail, as some might add. But it is equally true that the Chinese government thus far has failed to pacify both population despite oppression, assimilation or affirmative action. Thus, it is not always so clear-cut that Hkers will become assimilated, no question asked.

    I have interviewed many locals and they give me an impression they do harbour a strong local identity, for evidence, look at HKU's Robert Chung survey. And they are not going to simply roll over by the mainland, even if the larger trend is a gradual merging of both mainland and hong kong, the HK identity will still persist.

    Ha! Seriously though, it makes Geo look like a bunch of absolute saints. Imagine a site where most of the posts (from females too) resemble those from HongKongFoot....
