Go live in a communist country.  If you like it, you belong there and you deserve everything you get from it.

I spent 22 years in China, and 5 years in US. Thanks you very much and I know which one I like.
I hate US enough to list my US house for sale, cancelled my work contract extension and cancelled my green card application.
By the end of this year, I will be out of this shit hole.

As is your right. The world would be a terribly boring place if we were all the same and liked the same things.

I hope it treats you well.

Dave should implement a political thread detector and put this sentence in LARGE BOLD font on top of every page of them.

Education is in theory objective but that will mean self trained or taught individuals will likely lose out consistently to those with formal degrees.

Usually not in the real world. The two things that matter are:
1) Can you do the job
2) Do they like you (for *insert reasons here*)

Depends on where you are in the world. I keep an eye on jobs going and anything electronic they want degrees and may consider a HND (2 years of university). If you only have a HNC (1 year) you won't get anywhere. I am quite literally wasting my time getting qualifications in stuff i already know or could learn with ease so that I can tick boxes.

Here in the UK job hiring is farmed out to agencies that don't understand the work so all they can do is tick boxes and give the employer the short list. This is most of what is wrong with this country, everyone is too scared to make a decision so they come up with some proceedure that will be to blame and subcontracting stuff out seems to be a big issue here as there comes a point where you have to wonder who is willing to actually do the job.

My father had a boiler fitted by a company 6 layers of subcontractor down from the company that contracted the work. The result was that there must have been little money left by the time every layer of pen pushers had had their cut and he got a bunch of cowboys that were cluless doing the work.

@blueskull I know your post is old but I see the thread is still alive.

You say these things as if china has made notable contributions to the world other than gunpowder (many alchemist would have found it anyway) and tiananmen square(this is china's special contribution to the world which reveals all we need to know).

The reason you perceive china to be this way is because you don't understand what is going on there.

Those people received total economic freedom in exchange for every. single. other. freedom.

Yes, there is financial gain being had in china right now but that will not last and in time that gain will be absorbed back into the masses, bringing the 99% back to the third world were their morals reside.

Go live in a communist country.  If you like it, you belong there and you deserve everything you get from it.

So soon do people forget which hand fed them and start biting...

I suggest you let him find out for himself and stay off the politics please. We don't do politics here as a rule and this thread is already along those lines.

Crimes against humanity - especially to this level - are totally separate from politics. 

Doesn't matter; it doesn't even matter that I might even agree with your characterisation of crime versus politics. One of the moderators has politely asked you to cool it. There are plenty of other places to go on the web if you want a political rant or to set the world to rights. Persist in posting about what has been deemed political by one of the moderators and you may find yourself with no option but to go to one of those 'other places' as said moderator will, somewhat less politely, kick your arse out of here.

Crimes against humanity - especially to this level - are totally separate from politics.  I do not understate the situation when I compare the chinese government to Nazi Germany.  Those who try to make it about politics are trying to distract from the reality of what is going on over there.  The fact that people can ignore this and keep working with this evil country as if nothing is wrong is testament to how far we have stooped in western society.  Everyone everywhere needs to be talking about this and bringing it out into the open.  It shocks me how many people I encounter who are unaware of this and it has been going on for decades.  They are now literally using DNA to identify and detain these people.  This is end of the world type of stuff. The fact that you can call this "politics" and ignore this crime against humanity is absolutely disgusting.  Sorry for saying that, but it's the truth.  I mean no offense but get your facts straight and try to care about your fellow man a bit more, pal.

LAST WARNING, i might not even care if you had this to say in a thread about the subject but as it stands you are off topic and on a thin line subject wise.

Last warning for what? Being against Nazis? Oh, no! Will you ban me foe that?

1) Consider that in the era of VPN's, banning someone is a formality.  Doing so only exposes your impotence. 

2) This thread has been archived and your position on human rights violations in china has been archived permanentlly.

3)  I have not used this forum much but I have access to an offline archive of test equipment and consumer equipment  schematics that no longer exist except in the hands of a few of my colleagues as well as firmware build info and general knowledge from nearly 30 years in RF, Automotive, etc that I could help many people with many things.

Ban me, you impotent cuck.  I will take my knowledge elsewhere.  I thought this place was interesting and not populated by "impotent fragile cuck mod". I was wrong. Go back to your safe space. Your generation doesn't deserve what the experienced among us have to offer. Move to china  ;D ;D :palm:

Posting from free vpn instead of mcdonalds wifi to prove my point.  DO IT.

OK so you have now decided to wreck the thread.

1) yea we know about that, how determined are you? you won't be the first. Sure banned members have returned and they have even been allowed to stay if they play nice, plenty have come back constantly. The time to banning around here can be a matter of minutes so if you want to waste your time go ahead.

2) really? who's position? mine, Dave's, every single member? Just because we don't want to discuss such matters does not indicate anyones position. This is an electronics forum, not a political one, as a rule we do not discuss politics as it generally descends into mud slinging matches that benefit no one. Talking about it here does not help anyone.

3) that is clear and if you are going to play the stuck up valuable member card just remember where the door is or get ready to be shoved throught it. We don't care how knowledgeable you are or what information you have. In the past long standing members were given many benefits of the doubt but it never worked and they were banned anyway becasue no matter how long you have been here the rules still apply to you.

As for safe spaces I don't know what you are talking about. I say again as you seem a bit dense that this is an electronics forum and we avoid such topics. People here are from all over the world, we live in harmony discussing our common passion, electronics. We can all agree to dissagree about non electronics matters. as a rule politics, religion and conspiracy theories are not to be discussed as it just causes too much upset with the varied membership we have taking into accout language barriers for some.

If you need it in black and white see here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/forum-rules-please-read/

Oh and as for impotence I think you are the only one. This forum has run for nearly a decade quite smoothly and this has been achieved with no more than 3 main moderators and currently 2, if we were that impotent as you put it this place would have gone out of control ages ago. As for the age difference you seem to percieve, I do not care how old you are, you won't be the first person old enough to be my grandfather (OK Dad) that I have had to deal with!

Anytime you're talking about the actions or policies of a government, it's politics. By definition.

Definition of politics
1a : the art or science of government
 b : the art or science concerned with guiding or influencing governmental policy
 c : the art or science concerned with winning and holding control over a government
2 : political actions, practices, or policies
3a : political affairs or business
especially : competition between competing interest groups or individuals for power and leadership (as in a government)
 b : political life especially as a principal activity or profession
 c : political activities characterized by artful and often dishonest practices
4 : the political opinions or sympathies of a person
5a : the total complex of relations between people living in society
 b : relations or conduct in a particular area of experience especially as seen or dealt with from a political point of view

I am not exactly sure what you are driving at, I think the point I made was clear. I know some topics drift but this one was forced over the line. Ultimately the moderators are judge. We can have very strict rules if you prefer but than won't work either will it as it would be simple new fangled tick boxes.

Apologies. I was only addressing his contention that his commentary didn't qualify as politics. You've been more tolerant than I would be in your stead.

Claims are cheap and easy; I haven't noticed you help people to any significant extent.

If you really want to help people, add the content of your achieve to any of the existing archives.

If you want to talk politics amongst (some) expert engineers, go to the usenet group sci.electronics.design.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.

This dude’s use of the word “cuck” literally says everything I need to know about him, namely being a brain dead 4chan-er with probable allegiance to the alt-right and white supremacy. I’m sooooooooo heartbroken he’s gone!  ::)  :-DD

Dave and Simon, thank you for keeping this place largely politics-free. It’s nice to have respite from everything being politicized these days..

Tooki, you are also part of the problem, this post alone is evidence of that. Instead of just letting it go and either get back on topic or not say anything, you had to come back with a personal name calling attack against a now banned member. Please don't do this.
