First of all for the one who did see my posts about the biased double-standard complaint from me towards ATS:
- My thread is re-opened again after the moderator NGC2736 spent a lot of efforts on convincing me that ATS is not biased against my viewpoints and
spent even more efforts in checking in my complaints in details raising it to the attention to the other moderators.
I am certainly convinced that ATS tries to uphold the policy of keeping a neutral stand for any topics. And that moderators need to maintain a forum
with a hugeload of threads in different boards to keep the bandwidth and threads manageble.
However I also understand (and proven) that a Moderator system is based on human beings, people who has their own viewpoints and act differently
towards a similar issue. It's indeed an imperfect system as someone told me.
My critics go to the Moderators who are acting way too fast without looking into the matter closely or try to understand why a member would make a
complaint to them privately or publicly. ATS should have more Mods like NGC2736 and JAK/Asala, who are acting promptly when a real unfair issue
against a specific member is caused by another Mod or themselves.
My kudos to NGC2736 for contacting me immediately after he read my post here instead of publicly posting and trying to defend his colleague's
decision without looking into the matter if my claim was justified or not. (Looking at Skyfloating). He spent the efforts in investigating and
understanding the complaint.
I do have to clarify that in no way I wanted this particular (pro-Western) Thread to be closed, but I did feel being singled out of my thread being
closed when I saw that this thread was allowed to be discussed in the same board where ALSO another similar thread is ongoing. (Moved to AbovePolitics
after my thread is re-opened and moved to another board).

Just to clarify something here: Your thread was not closed because we are biased, it was closed because it was a Repeat Topic about which
several discussions already exist. If you open a thread in favour of China with a new topic or a new twist on a topic, it will certainly be
left open. ATS wants ALL sides to a story.
Vanitas: Sorry for posting off-topic, it was important for me to clarify this.
Now back to the scheduled programme.
Skyfloating: Please read my comments above, I understand that you felt it is important to you to protect the image of ATS, but you should understand
that not every member making a complaint is unjustified. I am not saying that my complaint is 100% justified as well, but for someone who did followed
it or do look into the issue in details would say, "hey, maybe we should have handled it slightly different".
If my thread was closed for your raised reason, then this one should have been closed too.
If my thread needed to be moved to another board, then this one should have been moved too.
Final results: ATS corrects it now, well appreciated.
Well, enough posting here.
Vanitas: Great for the understanding, but I had to go off-topic again.
