I love the idea of an English News source in Taiwan, and as recent immigrant, it would be amazing to stay informed of interesting and important goings on about the island. When I came across this website, I subscribed immediately. However, after a few weeks, I am disappointed with the largely unhelpful and uninformative subject matter for the majority of the stories. The story selection seems to focused on local tragedies that may have little relevance outside of the families involved. It’s hard to see how these might be useful to the public at large in any constructive way, and do not appear to contribute to an informed public opinion. Nor is the public best served by additional conversation of every such incident that occurs. Granted, there are a few useful items presented. However, the signal to noise ratio is below the threshold I chose to tolerate for my inbox, and thought you’d maybe want to know why I am unsubscribing. I hope things can turn around. Best of luck.

Dear Taiwan,

There is only one China. There is only one Taiwan! There is no Republic of China nor is there United States of Great Britain. An independent Taiwan is called The Republic of Taiwan. I support your independence! I do not support your country’s name.

Dear Sir, I am writing to tell you that there are many people in Australia that totally support the independence of Taiwan and the Taiwanese people.

Having visited your country more than 25 years ago, I have very fond memories of the people and the country, and this year my wife and I were booked to visit China for 10 days.

After the disgraceful criminal lock-down and emergency imposed on the people there we cancelled the booking and have decided to spend the time in your country.

Unfortunately the Corona virus lock-down by our government has totally curtailed any international flights for the present time. We for one totally support the freedom and independence of your country and am sure there are thousands of fellow Australian’s who were disgusted when little effort was made to rightfully support you in the international councils.

The effort by the CCP to cripple us economically will be totally resisted in my country, and the CCP has totally misread the spirit of Australia and Taiwan. Be strong, and resolute, and know that freedom loving people everywhere are behind you. Looking forward to once more visiting the Sun Moon Lake area , all the best for 2021.

Hi, Recently I have been thinking of an old friend of mine from Taiwan. The last time I saw her was in 1974 in Kaohsiung (sp ?) . I am hoping that someone that reads this could help me find her. Her name is Ho Siou Chin another way to spell it is Ho Hsia Chen. She lived in Chungli City and Towu Hsiang,Towu Village. She would be in her 60’s years old now. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance. 你好 最近我一直在想我的一个台湾老朋友。 我上次见到她是1974年在高雄(sp?)。 我希望阅读此书的人可以帮助我找到她。 她的名字叫Ho Siou Chin另一种拼写方式是Ho Hsia Chen。 她住在中gli市和陶屋乡的陶屋乡。 她现在60岁了。 任何帮助表示赞赏,谢谢。 Nǐ hǎo zuìjìn wǒ yīzhí zài xiǎng wǒ de yīgè táiwān lǎo péngyǒu.
