About the whole tibet thing on Piwik
« on: May 05, 2018, 11:32:01 pm »
A while ago, i had noticed that Piwik (now matomo), a web analytics software, was trying to remove Tibet from its internal map of database.
https://github.com/matomo-org/matomo/pull/11930

I also had noticed that the issue tracker was filled with request to remove Tibet from the map. (which was refused until now).

They would constantly stone wall me and refuse to even negotiate. (I proposed for example to put Tibet under "Disputed territory" and i was met with anger from chinese users)
The main dev, seemingly tired of hearing about Tibet, refused to comment on it other than "it's the standard".
I also asked the other former dev who added Tibet what he thought of it.
In short, he said that he still disagree with chinese ppl but he also said that he could not resist the pressure from chinese users...

I also had noticed that they were threatening github with DDOS over this single issue !
https://www.zhihu.com/question/62380774

In the end, my complaints were ignored, i was thrown under the mugs and they bowed under pressure.
Very few people defended my position.

After the pull request, China banned parodies, not to mention their useless fight against pr0nography and attempting to ban hints of homosexuality.
I mean, if they see a naked girl, they would bitch about it being against "Socialist's values" and then cry like f***ing babies.
They do this every time and each time you negotiate, you are met with a wall. (We are better than you, go away attitude)

So yeah i cannot hide my animosity against chinese people because they f***ing piss me off.
Hence why i did the whole free tibet thing in Picodrive.
I'm not even mentioning the gigantic amount of spam i get from China trying to rip me off.

 >:D Check Google maps, Apple maps, Nokia/Tomtom maps, Bing maps or even the openstreet map and you will see that Tibet is part of China.

Of course they're not, they have to if they don't want to get "harmonized" by the Great Firewall...

It is a big lie to claim that you are not doing it for political reasons, because obviously you wouldn't harass me like this if it wasn't the case.
People wouldn't like if i claim that the entirety of Syria was under the SDF/YPG.
Of course, that is no longer the case for China but the mere thought of it makes you feel uneasy.
Which is probably why you registered and it is your first post.

According to the Surveying and Mapping Law of the People's Republic of China, private surveying and mapping activities are illegal in mainland China. "Since at least 2007, it has been effectively illegal for foreigners to operate a GPS device in China."
...
This seems to outlaw the entire OSM project and any participation or contribution

By recommending me to check out OpenStreetMap, you (presumably a Chinese citizen) essentially broke your own laws, making you no better than me.
You told me i was the odd ball (for claiming otherwise) but who's the odd ball now ?

I don't want to see you around ever again

In dictatorships such as China and Russia - but let's face it, also in so-called democracies - some state workers sometimes have the right to break even their countries' rules, in a more or less controlled way, to misinform, mislead and perform mischief on people from other countries and in other countries. Maybe that's what we're seeing here.
