Time flies!

It seems such a short time ago that I crafted my greeting cards for my family and friends in the last holiday season. Time seems to be marching along at an ever increasing pace, another year has slipped by. At this greeting moment, Not only should I send my blessing to family and friends, but also I should prepare message to those acquaintances who take an active part in the 51 website, especially on the forum and in the blog.

Arguing with you and leaving comments on your blog throughout the past year I already have unforgettable time and a lot of fun. I often couldn’t help clapping and laughing when I read those thoughtful and humorous articles and posts. I have been participating in arguments which bring me a whole lot of inspiration and pleasure. Just as the former Chinese leader - Chairman Mao said:”… It is joyful to contend with folks”(与人斗其乐无穷). For the approaching year, I wish we will continue to pursue our goals of being happy, humorous and enjoyable in the website.

As we all know, It is inevitable to argue with somebody else on the forum or in the blog because there are not consistent thought, cognition and action due to growing up in different backdrops such as education, culture and social system etc. As the old saying is:”A hundred flowers blossom and a hundred schools of thought contend”(百花齐放,百家争鸣). Our goal of arguing on the forum and exhibiting talents in the blog is to build up a spiritual home for Chinese immigrants in the 51 website.

Of course, we know from the previous experience that there is no easy path to reach harmonious, civilized, educated, and open-minded arguments. Our efforts have been challenged by personal insulting, naked vituperating in language, and meaningless posts. That is why the manager (Xiao Mu 小牧) frequently deletes posts and seals off violators’ ID for a while.

Nevertheless, Due to most web-friends’ self-discipline, the progress has been steady by magnetizing numerous old and new friends all the year round: not only do new friends join in, but the old ones stick around as well. The 51 website has been recognized and measured as Chinese web-leading and it has been entirely consistent with its original intention that committed itself to serving the Chinese community. I firmly believe that with the support of warmhearted web-friends, It will continue to make solid progress of scorching arguments on the forum and showcasing talents in the blog by honorable arguing, matter-of-fact (实事求是)exampling, and coherent discoursing.

As a forum, It would not be possible to be a hustle-and-bustle (熙熙攘攘) resort without collective dedication, including penetrating viewpoints, clear presentation, helpful suggestions, and humorous speech. In a similar way in the blog, it would not be a magnetic field without bloggers’ wisdom, elaborative thinking, brilliant and trenchant writing. It has never been more apparent than it is right now that “When everyone adds fuel, the flames rise high”(众人拾柴火焰高)

Thank you

May you find joy and happiness this holiday season in ways that make you smile.

Best wishes to you and your family for a joyous holiday season and a new year filled with good health, happiness and prosperity.

Warm regards,
