managed to barrel on despite years of flesh-searing flame wars
to survive to this day as one of the most exciting, if sophomoric,
resources on the Net. The posts here are evenly balanced between

the ongoing fusillades between non-Asians (both those with a legitimate
interest in Asian culture and those with a bone to pick) and Asian
Americans (both those with a sense of humor and those with a bone
to pick). But by far the biggest group of people are those who
scan quickly through for its bits of useful news and information
and dump the rest unread.
