We have moved!



Xindao has moved to its new home at http://laibcoms.asia/blog/xindao/ so please update your bookmarks and feed subscription.

Additionally, for all the Entrecard droppers, there will be no more Xindao Entrecard for the following reasons:
  1. Xindao is now part of the Laibcoms.asia Entrecard account - I'm consolidating the blogs for easier management and maintenance
  2. Entrecard's manual checker deleted Xindao accusing us of a violation of their Terms and Conditions stating "We will delete accounts that represent websites not in English" - Go on and search this blog and contradict our claim that this blog is 99.99% in English.

To Entrecard's manual checker, whoever you are, we sincerely thank you for doing the deletion yourself, because that saved us time. Good job for reading our minds, but no, not because you deleted a blog that is 99.99% English.

See you all over at Xindao's new home.

PS
To Entrecard, teach your manual checkers to visit the blogs and learn to identify English blogs from non-English blogs.

PSS
To Entrecard, if you have a new rule about "non-English" characters, please announce it first. If you don't have one, then I implore that all blogs deleted because of (quoting the email) "English only", should be re-reviewed and get reinstated if found similar to our case here.

As mentioned above, we care less if you reinstate this blog's Entrecard account, it was our plan anyway to delete it. But with this recent development, I am concerned as to how many blogs were deleted because their blog-title is non-English, and/or they mentioned a few non-English words within their content.

Again, the content of this blog is 99.99% in English. That qualifies within the bounds of your current Terms and Conditions as herein quoted "We will delete accounts that represent websites not in English". Xindao represents a website in English.

Thank you.
