A Web 2.0 blog, TechCrunch, posted about a week ago on the upcoming launch of Baidu Space. The post spurred a series of comments that reveal the craziness of commitments both for and against China’s leading search engine, Baidu. There are those who hate Baidu because it’s a mainland company and is seen as participating in government oppression of certain kinds of speech; there are those who love Baidu because it’s a mainland company and helps further the cause of strengthening China. Both sides see things in black and white. Both can be virulent in Chinese and English.
Some excerpts from the comments:

In response to the post above:
不管怎么说.我都爱我们中国自己的搜索引擎 No matter what, I love our own Chinese search engine 可能我们的技术赶不上美国的GOOGLE和YAHOO Maybe our technology isn’t up to Google or Yahoo 但是我们永远是百度的忠实拥护者 But we will always be faithful Baidu users 因为我们是中国人 Because we are Chinese
if u say”chinese shit”, you are cursing you and your parents as “shit “at the same time.Why do you call yourself “shit”?
Chinese people look down upon you,and people from other countries also look down upon you.
You made us sick!
你根本不配做一个中国人。 You are not worthy of being a Chinese.
你真恶心！ You’re disgusting!
