Late to the party, but welcome back Wuerstchenhund!  :-+
I always find your posts interesting and educating, and was really sad to see you banned.

the return of Bored at Work
dude. if you want to talk about the most bluntest, boldest guy in eevblog, this is the name, nobody can beat him. its always entertaining even if he is trying to bash me.. but iirc he is not banned, he just left. maybe to "Not bored at work anymore"
The boldest guy? He was a loser and whiner all way long starting from his user name.

you try to penetrate his thick skin and you'll know its a lost combat, i only watched and i knew it, i dont have to try... btw the vote is currently at (48%, 13%, 39%) (Y, N, O) total voters = 100, just after the proceeding concluded. should i close? or should i keep it open? i think i would like to keep it open in case any late comers would like to change the figure. :-// and i think its worth to mention that there is a bit (or more?) of a democracy here (when you voice it) so, kudos to dave.

  It might be interesting to keep it open and to see if Wuerstchenhund's opinion rating increases or declines over the next month or so.

I think it's a mistake to conclude that this was a democratic process.

I rather conclude that it was a grassroots or community-led petition process, which Dave responded in agreement with, but I don't remotely think of it as democratic per-se.

Yes, of that I'm well aware.
Still, can you blame him for wanting to defend his motherland against the ongoing snide xenophobic comments here about China ? Are all other nations squeaky clean of faults and internal policies ? No, history proves this.

It seems like just yesterday when we rubbished all that the Japanese once made yet look at the quality products they produce today. Jap crap was the saying of the day like the wung hung lo that you so often use and neither should be acceptable on an engineering forum.

Like you I well see how politics (and xenophobia) makes an absolute mess of the forum and recent events (blueskull and others) clearly show this but let's take note of who throws the first stone.
I see more and more of this here so I'm now reporting the first signs of xenophobia in posts.

  So. You're now the self appointed Political Monitor of this forum? 

   The many, many threads on this forum and indeed all over the internet that show Chinese made counterfeit parts and poorly designed and built Chinese products prove that the distain for Chinese products isn't just xenophobia.

You’re apparently too young to know of all the substandard products the Japanese once made.

Dave doesn’t want politics discussed here so to stamp on it we all need show some restraint, therefore wouldn’t be wiser to discuss brand rather than country of origin ?

This wouldn't have anything to do with the Chinese products you distribute? Besides, we have enough senseless brand wars going on as it is.

Not at all ! If anything it gives me a greater awareness of false prejudices.

Report this too, after a couple of Aussie cars, no more of them for me either !

Then my current Jap one has issues too so they mightn't get a further $ out of me either !


Did I one generalize that all of their countries of origin make nothing but rubbish ? Nope.

That's pretty much exactly what you're doing when you say no more Britsh vehicles. If you judged each manufacturer or vehicle on its own merits them being British wouldn't be a factor. We can't do it to Chinese products as that's xenophobic but doing it to British products is fine.

You are both wrong. Its the German cars which are the crap ones.

It seems like just yesterday when we rubbished all that the Japanese once made yet look at the quality products they produce today. Jap crap was the saying of the day like the wung hung lo that you so often use and neither should be acceptable on an engineering forum.

I see more and more of this here so I'm now reporting the first signs of xenophobia in posts.


I and perhaps the vast majority of forum members may prefer to not see China bashing quite so prevalent. The culture of the forum has been established to tolerate it. As long as terms like "Wun Hung Lo" are so widely used on the forum and significantly by Dave you have to question the value in making such reports.

I don't know just why certain members seem to fall foul of something so widespread but I think it might be when it becomes too obvious it triggers an overtly strong reaction (banning) because it is easier than working to change the culture on this forum.

But as long as so many such posts are made by relatively few forum members you'd probably better get used to it. A little while back I looked at the "Gender Politics" thread that fades in and out of prominence every so often and although I don't recall the exact stats I found 5 participants made over 50% of the posts. Dave being the biggest by far. Now Dave claims it is a joke thread deriding the concept of gender politics. And maybe he genuinely believes that. But it is quite apparent others don't quite get it. Dave sets the tone by his behavior so complaining to him seems a bit pointless.

The best thing to do is put the thread with  such posts on your ignore list. Pretty soon the rest of the sharks will gather and for a short time the beaches are safe away from the frenzy.

If less than flattering comments were made about all other country's we surely wouldn't be having this discussion.

i think when we talk about things like wung hung lo, or china cheap crap, we should be aware that we will probably insult our chinese fellows. so trying to defend their country will be the typical act, please do give some tolerance.. the worst i heard is "crap products" made by "Asia" :palm: do they have a clue how big Asia is? and multi culture they are? sometime they are bashing among themselves anyway.

The point is that legally the product needs to meet its described product features and legal requirements, otherwise it would be a simple case of fraud or a case for consumer protection, customs and sorts. Buying with the expectation that unspecified features exist, overestimating the price/performance ratio and maybe lack of customer support are however partially a problem of the buyer (fitness for purpose is kind of a legal expectation...).

You can buy that sort of "crap" made locally too, often it is just called a scam here or comes in the form of "scandals", when tax dollars are wasted and such. In my opinion this is really not a case of country of origin, if greed or the usual machiavellism is the underlying cause you can find that everywhere. Some describe their advantage as smart optimization, but when it turns out to be bad decision-making they are nowhere to be found.
Support your local planet.

China is perfectly capable of making high quality products.

Its just that China found its niche in making very low cost products in massive volumes. The only way these products can be made for such a incredibly low price is cutting a few corners here and there, hence the quality suffers. They make a lot of money with cheap crap so they keep making it.

This does not mean they are not capable of quality. If you enforce your companies quality metrics on the Chinese manufacturer they will give you the quality you want, but it will no longer be for the bargin low price. If you want quality you have to pay for it.

At work we use a lot of Chinese sourced parts, like displays, glass, cables, connectors, antennas, cases...etc and its all about sampling and testing the parts to make sure they are good, if not ask them to get you something better or just leave them and try a different vendor. Just don't go for the cheapest bottom of the barrel stuff and its just fine.

Tho that being said Chinese test equipment is...eeeh....not quite there. Yes it does often offer pretty good bang per buck due to how cheep it is, and the physical construction is usually pretty good. But the firmware is where they usually fail. Confusing menus, nonsense features, weird UI choices, bugs, crashes, rarely updated, updates that fix one thing but break another etc... Its not that bad with the big popular brands like Rigol, Siglent...etc but some are horrible.

Come on guys, wasn't this thread about getting a banned but very useful user back? Now that he is back this thread is now going the route of all other threads that silently turn into political bashing, and China discussion...

Don't he have enough threads talking about that? One more is not going to change what had been said in the others. Shouldn't you guys refrain or you want this one to be closed in the future?

He was not a useful user, he was a pain in the backside that disliked me for dealing with him more than fairly despite constant transgressions. I don't object if he has returned and behaves but accusing me behind my back of going crazy like I am some despotic nutter "we are all forced to live under" is not nice!

As we have once again started talking about china I have locked the thread - hopefully I will not be accused of going crazy and overboard.......
