Along with Okami, it can be a tough road for some.

I was using Forumosa for a month or so. Having a pretty good time. A few threads started turning into a sort of hate for men and white men especially.

So I jousted back a bit with those posters.. I was playful at times, maybe a little fiercer at other times, but all within the limits of anything you might see in mainstream media, twitter, etc...Good healthy fun. But it all got deleted by a moderator named tempogain. Not just mine, but other users as well. One guy's posts you can tell he hates white men in Taiwan and Asia. The moderator tempogain clearly has an agenda.

I noticed there are no proper ads placed on forumosa. Not sure what the owner of the site gets out of it all.

I don’t have much to say about the current inner workings of forumosa, but I always thought tempogain was a decent guy. Anyway, welcome to Taiwanease!

Tempo Gain's a great bloke, and a stalwart. You won't find anyone with a bad word to say about him here.

Internet forums. Yeah, well, you can find out how to find sour cream at COSTCO on Facebook.

But this is a nice place for an informal discussion or two. :twocents:

@RedRedWine: Send tempogain a PM asking why your posts got removed. It could be that they were replies to another poster who got flamed, or something like that. He's a sound moderator IME.

No biggie I couldn't be bothered. Just lost interest after about the 5th time the moderator interpreted what I should be saying as per his framing of the world, and chopped up my content, sending me private messages, warning me. So uptight. Trying to protect women and minorities or something along those lines?? I have no idea. A poster came in and said white men coming to Asia are losers, so you know, I gave it back to the guy. No swearing, no name calling, just good old online jousting...like the good old days yeah? But my posts (and others) were removed, but the poster's hate was not (OK later it was)

Sorry guys but this navigation is tough! I'm struggling to find the reply to posts and all that. Forumosa got you beat on this area.

I find it much more user-friendly here. :idunno: Might be you've gotten used to the other site's functions. I find it painful to use and not very easy on the eye - although I'm not too keen on the pinky-blue colors over here.

The posters here are small but perfectly formed. Quality over quantity. Size doesn't matter etc. We kid ourselves that that's true.

Guys guys where is the standard top right red number notification of responses to messages? Like LINE or any app. Also I don't clearly see where to respond to a thread is it the "Quote" button only?

"Post a reply" - bottom left as you are looking at the screen. Notifications of replies to your posts are sent to your email account.

Ah I see it now the "Post a reply" button...very inconspicuous. Trust me I looked. And receiving replies to posts via email, no no..it's scientifically proven now people get a dopamine shot to the brain on seeing that top right red number message alert.

They're really trigger happy on removing posts on the flob. It's incredible. Posts get removed before I have a chance to finish reading them. No temp, either. It's a shame because a couple of chaps are having a right ding dong at the moment about sticky balls.

EDIT: My mistake, there is a temp.

I suppose Taiwanease had to have its version of Rowland eventually. I always thought that Maoman started this place in an attempt to get away from all the BS horrible people were posting in an increasingly frequent fashion over at the flob rather than the attempts to constrict said BS, but I could be wrong.
