    I chose my words very carefully -- I said you were "basically saying "Chinese are all cheaters lololol"" -- I'm very aware that you've never used those exact words, however anyone reading the posts that you've been making both in this thread and other threads can only logically interpret it as you making sweeping negative generalizations towards the Chinese as a group.

    To be honest I really couldn't care less if you or anyone else chooses to make generalizations like that, or whether you think you are making it or not, but if your posts are getting deleted, well that is the most likely reason.

    As for other pro-Chinese individuals -- if they make negative genearlizations towards other groups in the explicit way and consistent pattern that you have, then mods will pick up on them as well. I've been here a while, and it's not exactly a rare occurrence. I've also called out other pro-China members who've made posts which I think are in poor taste, but I'm not a mod so I have no incentive nor any obligation to castigate everyone on both sides for every single post which infringes on the rules or which infringes on poor taste, especially if I know pro-China members who make posts in poor taste will also be chewed out by individuals on the other side.
    More importantly, there are only so many mods, and there will always be posts on both sides of the fence that fall between the cracks. Unfortunately for you, I think there are a large proportion of your posts which tend to fit the pattern of being inflammatory either through constant edging on political topics, offensive generalizations, whereas most other people here who may occasionally make posts in poor form generally contribute in other constructive ways as well.

    Still, if you feel like you've been slighted somehow by the moderating team then you can try to complain to them or argue that you think justice has not been dispensed properly or evenly.

    For instance, you can put your complaints to this thread here if you really want: https://www.sinodefenceforum.com/sd-forum-suggestions-and-questions.t2846/page-31#post-407250

    Accusing the mods of unjustly censoring you, accusing members are spouting propaganda left and right, throwing out offensive generalizations, and having virtually all of your posts have a political anti-Chinese or anti-CCP edge, will have its consequences on this forum because this forum is tightly regulated to keep discussion as insulated from toxic political subjects as possible.
    If you want the forum to change the rules, or if you disagree with what constitutes politically acceptable on this forum then you can try to ask the moderating team, or you can find a different forum with rules which are more lax.

    No dude. You said:

    You didn't say "so they could go to Harvard or Princeton", you said "Tsinghua or Beijing".

    So stop lying.

    Sure, two kids telling you some BS is proof of rampant cheating among CCP members.

    You keep believing that, it only makes you look more ridiculous.

    As a person working in academia, I would like to weigh in.

    Question #1: is there cheating in China among Chinese students?
    Answer: Yes. In graduate school, I had plenty classmates from China telling me different ways that Chinese students could use to get perfect GRE / TOFEL scores. Later on when perfect scores became suspicious, there came ways to allow you to get whatever scores you desire.

    Question #2: is there cheating in the US among American students?
    Answer: Yes. I have heard stories about cheating when I was in high school, college and graduate school in the US. I am now a professor at a prestigious medical school in the US. We have a very elaborate system to prevent cheating at our school. It's so high tech and elaborate that it sounds more like a spy movie... Such system has to be implemented because there is cheating. And the system changes on a yearly basis. So apparently, students have been working hard to beat the system.

    Keep in mind that only the best of the best college students get admitted to medical schools. Last year, the average GPA of newly admitted students to our school was 3.92 out of 4. So even the best students cheat.

    What can we say about all this? Cheating happens everywhere, China, the US, and everywhere else on this planet. Fortunately, only a very small percentage of the population cheats. Vast vast majority of the students are honest. This applies everywhere. Unless there is reliable statistics on it, no one can definitively say cheating occurs more often in one place than others. All this subjective opinion won't get us anywhere.

    The parents are hyped up because the Gaokao is likely the single most important event in a young person's life.

    Well cheating happens in the US too for SAT, they even made a movie about it. And at least at my university, cheating occurred on a widespread basis too. This isn't only a Chinese problem, but a problem in any competitive academic environment. Back when I was a young, stupid, and a broke college student, doing extra programming projects and homework assignments became a lucrative source if extra income. Our school had a machine learning program that processes all students code submissions to detect cheating, so each time I had to come up with a different solution or structure of code, so in a way it actually made me a better programmer too!
