    The first thing they'll do is break down shri's door and use pliers to make him tell them our real names.

    Robtex says he hosts on Cloudflare servers out of SF. So more than enough proof that he is a "foreign interfere" and can expect those knocks on his door any day now.

    Maybe he has an escape plan before they start knocking on his door. This Covid-19 lockdown sure made escaping allot harder.

    While it's gonna change a lot comparatively, there are plenty of expats already living on the mainland without having to escape.

    Agreed, but I imagine plenty of them were aware of the need for self-censorship. If shri has some way of identifying those of us who have been only keyboard warriors, it would probably be much appreciated if he could remove any identifiable links and/or tell us what we need to do on our end.

    On the one hand, it’s way too early to voluntarily surrender freedoms, but on the other, it would be foolish not to look out for potential consequences.

    They showed up after 1949 I presume and were aware of the risks involved and restrictions before they moved there (I hope). HK is different.

    There are five or six posters here who talk political sense (and I'm not one of them). For the rest of you, I doubt the CCP autobots have a heat-seeking setting for Tediously Repeated, Self-serving, Faux-intellectual Newswank. Relax and press on...
    And you do know ideas don't have owners, right, @Coolboy?
