The foundation that oversees Wikipedia has taken unprecedented action to ban seven mainland Chinese users from its websites globally and revoke administrator access and other privileges for 12 other users, following an HKFP report of alleged threats to Hong Kong users.HKFP revealed in July that mainland Chinese Wikipedia editors allegedly threatened to report Hong Kong users for national security violations, posing a physical risk to them.“Their true target is the entirety of the Chinese Wikipedia community, and not us at WMC,” the statement said. “The foundation has abandoned mainland China, they don’t care about our life or death… We do the most ‘dangerous’ work in China, but you have turned back to eliminate our community.”However, the group was open to discussions with the foundation, it said.It ended its statement with a call to fellow mainland Wikipedia users: “Use your actions to tell everyone the mainland user community is not made from clay. The more they suppress us, the more we will resist. Now is the time for you to stand up. Struggle, fail, struggle again and fail again, and struggle once more… until victory!”https://hongkongfp.com/2021/09/14/exclusive-wikipedia-bans-7-mainland-chinese-power-users-over-infiltration-and-exploitation-in-unprecedented-clampdown/

Wikipedia is propaganda. Has been for over a decade. Let it burn.
why do mainland chinese give a shit about a US based website that their government doesn't even want them visiting?
>>929160To make pro-china edits and policies.
Wikipedia is an American disinformation and fake news mill. The Wikipedia founders have admitted that themselves.
>>929162On a site that average chinese citizens can't even visit? Seems like a waste of time. If they're trying to sway opinions of foreigners then I guess they haven't learned that most people either don't care or don't like most world powers.
>>929178>>929106Okay Chang. Cope more.>>929160This>>929199Most people read wikipedia to just finish their essays or waste time, but they want to cover everything in their propaganda push.It's the same reason why they are also on FB, Twitter and hire white guys to make them look good on YT.>>929086Baidu has a wiki equivalent.
>>929217>waste timeN-no, this is v-valuable knowledge. I must know when the northernmost island was discovered and what flora is there.This is important shit, man.
>>929394>>929399If Taiwan was an independent country 100 years ago then who was the head of state of independent Taiwan? Should be easy to answer that question, retard.
>>929420There has never been an independent nation-state officially called Taiwan. There is an independent nation called the Republic of China on the island of Taiwan where many aspire to the nationhood of Taiwan only.
>>929199International propaganda is useful.
>>929598>>929420Taiwan(ROC) is de facto independent and has been since WW2. The official name is irrelevant, much like North Korea (DPRK) and South Korea (ROK).It is a separate nation from China(PRC) and the territorial dispute that each claims the other is irrelevant to the reality.
Wikipedia is state funded bullshit to enforce lies. Lie enforcement / propaganda pipe.
>>929730Wikipedia is on par with Yelp and Rotten Tomatoes.Nobody takes any of the reviews serious and should never be used.
>>929598There is no independent nation on that island. There is a Chinese rogue province that seeks international recognition as an independent nation but doesn't get it anywhere, because there is only one China. That's your government's official stance on the matter. Every single government's for the past 60 or so years. Your personal opinions may differ, but who cares about those?
>>929730>>929733Quite obviously, China takes it very seriously.
>>929980China wants Wikipedia's lies to reflect their lies. Nothing more.Control of a loaded gun.
>>929980I can't think of a single culture more insecure than the Chinese. MacArthur was right. The world has been treating them like the toddlers they are emotionally despite China now being a roided out meathead that strangles stray animals for fun and regularly threatens everyone that isn't them.
>>929160because china is the international toddler who thinks pitching a fit with force companies to do as China wants because "omg we can't lose the chinese market!"but you will lose the chinese market. the entire point of this strategy is to leech off international companies trying to do business with china, complain that they do not abide by china's draconian policies. then finally ban ___ company from chinese markets for "failing to submit to lawful chinese authority on various issues"cue asset confiscation if the company has any local in china. cue financial accounts being frozen "until criminal wrongdoing has been proven to not occur". and finally cue some totally not started by friendly chinese corporate spies company that will immediately fill the market need the foriegn company was trying to fill before.its pretty fucken obvious when you consider how ridiculously over the top their demands of some of these companies are. China wants to run these companies as they see fit, but damn they provide foreign money and they LIKE that foriegn money enough to keep leading them around with the poisoned carrot of "but chinese markets are rich markets that you want to tap into"
>>929071Good job OP for exposing the amount of tiny pp chang shills infesting this board
>>930434Macarthur was an Anti-Communist who just wanted to take advantage of every weapon in his arsenal, including nukes. He would have been merciless to the PVA, but he'd probably also have wanted China around but under the thumb of Chiang.>>930450The thing is the strategy worked for a while. Now the problem is, everyone realised it is the only tactic China has, and they've pissed us off so much we decided to take our business elsewhere.
>>930572>and they've pissed us off so much we decided to take our business elsewhere.[x] doubttoo many stupid greedy businesses will keep trying to "crack into the chinese market" and get bled dry for it
