    • Sing Chi Why put a bank’s link up? Isn’t that one of the banks that sold personal info data, much to the nuisance for their customers.

    • Sing Chi Oh. Because when you put that link, it only displays “www.citibank.com.hk“, so it appears like you are online sharing their homepage. I recommend that you post some information with such links, then people will know what you’re showing.

    • Sing Chi I’m giving you constructive criticism about sharing links and now you are telling everyone to check all links they might not be interested in before leaving comments? I’m sorry I spent my time mentioning it then, if it’s such an inconvenience.

      Sorry, but if the link seems irrelevant to me, I won’t click it.

    • Tony Woo then simply ignore it.

    • Sing Chi You’re really closed to friendly suggestions. I highly suggest that you be more open to suggestions from others. No one is perfect and all knowing. I’m merely trying to suggest something and find your response quite rude.

      You don’t need to leave comments with the links that you post if you don’t think it’s a good idea, but did you even bother to think whether it would help?

    • Tony Woo i understand that you’re from a strong debating background, yet it isn’t one here. i’m confident that ppl reading my post would be objective enough to read and analyze. thank you for your kind advice. truly insightful.

      Did you mean to be abrasive in your response? I really did find it to be. “Take a look” and “People, do check before leaving comments”. If you disagree, why don’t you just say so, instead of implying that I’m not bothering to have a look (Btw, it links out to two things, the event and the homepage). I did bother to look.

      I’m not sure if you know, but responding like that can be found offensive. This is why I felt like you are closed to friendly suggestions.

      I only made the suggestion because I hope for my friends to be able to share their things with others as effectively as possible. I really didn’t expect to be treated as such.

    • Tony Woo I see that you’ve taken some effort to form the response. Appreciated. Yet my stance is the same, read, and you’ll know. I understand the internet culture makes ppl act quick, it’s not, however, what communications is meant to be. Should you find the correspondence offensive, I feel sorry for that.

      I did put effort into all of the comments I have posted in regard to your link, from the first one to the last. I don’t appreciate that you imply that I wasn’t and have been quickly responding without reason, which is definitely not the case.

      The internet is fast and interactive. When the link you post does not have a description underneath it, people are likely only to see it as a link to the homepage, especially since the actual displayed link does infact link out to the homepage.

      If you really want to share that link, it would be a lot clearer for people to know it’s about priority booking for an event. It only would take a few seconds. It’s more effective communication. It’s not something you must do, since you choose what you put on your own wall.

      exactly, i ain’t posting the link to you wall, am i? all you’ve mentioned are relative concepts, “ppl r likely only to see blah blah blah”, “clearer for people blah blah blah”, “more effective communication blah blah blah blah”. honestly speaking, i dunno how many “ppl” would share the view, and i did not bother to check out, that’s why, amidst an extremely busy day i chose to leave you a note “take a look” cos’ apparently you’ve misunderstood sth and i hope it’s gonna be an end when you found out, sadly it isn’t. i’m of the position that my position is sound, and i chose to defend it. meanwhile you defended yours and you might have found my responses provoking, which i was and am amused given the calibre of your good self. in any event, i’d like to put an end here, cos’ it’s getting weird for the others who are checking out the link to see what it’s supposed to be. cool? cheers.

      You’re not really defending your stance because you’re not giving any reasoning for it. You’re just not replying and jabbing at me with snide comments that are disguised as polite remarks, such as “I see that you’ve taken some effort”. I still find my manner and tone to be polite and not contradicting my “good self” as you call it. If you don’t ant to accept my concept or bother to consider it because you’re happy closed off to your own view that is your choice, but you do not need to be rude to the people who bother to suggest something.

      I think that most people, including social media analysts would agree on my point about which method would draw more attention to your link. But since you do not want to discuss it, then I will not bother to insist because all I get back is insults.

      I really did not expect that kind of response from you because I always thought you were polite. I was really surprised because I also thought you were really open to exchange of ideas.

      I do take the time to defend my ideas and myself when people try to insinuate that I don’t bother to take time in my responses.

      I really do hope that your day brightens up because you don’t seem to be in a good mood to have snapped at me like that. Have a lovely week.

    • Sing Chi Then again, maybe it’s a cultural difference of whether or not it’s good to give a suggestion publicly. Obviously, my personal stance is that open discussion is fine. But, perhaps some prefer to receive feedback in private. So, if I have embarrassed you in anyway by posting my suggestion here, I am sorry for that. 🙂 Anyway, take care.

      if i find anything embarrassing, i’d have deleted such, so no worries. i’m sure ppl reading my wall would know what is by nature embarrassing. one thing that truly bothers me is “cultural difference”, as if you’re in the position to speak for that. i’m astonished by the facebook culture, since for me my facebook wall is for communicating with friends of mine. frankly speaking, i dun give a ____ to what analysts think. same here, i feel sorry for you because we’re of the same university and i expect the same of myself from you. what is proven is we can’t always expect the others as how we expect ourselves. hope you’ve enjoyed this conversation, good luck.

      I feel I better reply because it seems you think I’m trying to insult you but I’m not. Also, you continue to personally attack me.

      It’s good to hear that you’re open to suggestions. I think it’s very fair that I mention it might be due to “cultural differences” because we are of different cultures. I’m not too sure why you find it offensive that I say that. I’m not trying to say that one is better than the other, incase that is what you thought I was trying to say. Even people with the same general culture find different things offensive than others because we’re all individuals.

      I was talking about an idea and you claimed to be open to suggestion and claimed to defend your stance, but you weren’t and you didn’t. That is fine because it’s your wall and your choice to do that anyway. But, what I found unsavory was your personal attacks on me.

      I don’t feel sorry for myself because I believe I conducted my arguments logically without attacking you personally or trying to insinuate that you are a lesser person than I am, which is what you have been doing to me all along. You often use compliments or kind words to actually make the insults. I don’t know why you think that’s productive at all, but would be happy to discuss that, but have a feeling you would rather not.

      Feel free to “unfriend” me on Facebook if you think I’m such a horrible person. I really do not understand why our conversation has turned into me receiving personal hits over something so trivial.

    • Tony Woo all along you’ve repeated for several times that you were “attacked” or “insulted”. i’d suggest you take it easy and be less defensive. you know it’s tiring to be sensitive. that’s my final word on this. 🙂

      Don’t be so quick to jump to the conclusion that someone is overly sensitive, whether they be a boy or a girl because they mention that they feel insulted. Most of the time it’s because of a linguistic or cultural difference. This is why I asked you whether you meant to be abrasive before this long conversation. Besides the words you have chosen to use, the things that you have said, it is also the manner you choose to say it. You have implied that I do not think before I comment and I do not conduct myself well, as one should expect from a well educated person. You even explicity said that you “feel sorry” for me.

      Even in the comment saying that you did not mean to be offensive, you decided to start it off with something offensive.

      If you really want to continue making jabs at me, at least substantiate your ungrounded comments.
