    To be fair, theirs were made from "dirty cotton" scrapped from other thrown out mattresses.. so they didn't get those blood ones.

    Here is an article on the "practice"

    A Chinese app? What a shocker. There, I said it.

    BTW, Chinese is not a race, it's a nationality. Asian is a race. Get it right. Waldo was spot-on. Se23, you need to learn what racism really means. Clearly you do not.

    I suppose if a German said, "Damn Americans" he's racist too? You see my point.

    You guys, like most people, confuse "racism" with "political correctness", "fact", and "opinion".

    Nothing racist was said, except maybe "well at least they're good at math." Yeah, it was a joke but it was a racist joke. Not that I care. Racism is simply a fact of life - we wouldn't have separate, independent countries without it and that's a GOOD thing (competition is good!). Race and religion are the two most divisional factors in human civilization, and as much as people want to believe they're above it, they're not.

    Personally I would avoid anything in the app store made by a Russian or Chinese developer. It's no secret that those two countries are rampant with cyber-crime. That doesn't mean that there is no cyber-crime anywhere else - it simply means that I, personally, will not download from those countries (and I'll more than likely be safer because of that). Don't be racist, just be smart.

    p.s. i'll cut you.
    haha!

I think the point Waldo was trying to make was that the chinese are smart people who seam to like hacking.

    Oh and the Google thing... I'm pretty sure it was the chinese Gov. that ran them out with hacking because Google refused to remove a link to the un-cencored internet. The RUMOR (<-- take note of that word right there) is that a chinese official Googled himself and didn't like what he found and tried to get Google to censor it. When Google refused, the hacking attempts started...



    If thats true... thats just nasty!
    And US gov employs no hackers?

    Most people making a judgement on the Chinese people don't even understand China...

    Google pulling out of China... you know why? becoz they know ppl in China will never adopt google... all this hard talking and crxp is becoz google have nothing to lose... they have no market in China.

    There is nothing wrong with the app itself... it is a fairly standard mode of Chinese Online Game... customers can make purchases for equipments etc in the game for real money. Games have been like this for a good 6 - 8 years.

    It appears that those who've made a complaint have obviously not read the terms and instruction of the game.

    One could use simple math and come to a rational conclusion. No need to turn a blind eye to common sense for political correctness' sake.

    The vast majority of global scamware and bootlegs come from China. State side, 71% of violent crimes are committed by blacks.

    You call it racism, I call it math.

    This happened to me, and, I never even downloaded the game. Altho, somehow my account must have been hacked and the game then downloaded.....somewhere.

    22 was taken out, glad my debit card I had registered had expired.

    It was this App, but I, or any other member of my family downloaded the game. Only I had access to my iTunes account so hacking was the only answer I think.

    As I said, had the refund immediately but my account is still disabled at the mo. Already change my password so see what happens.

    1) tell me once where I used the word Racist?
    2) ok I will start stereotyping that I bet all of the dumb a** comments against me were from Yanks or equally as dumb canadiens!
    3) don't start me off about political correct. I'm not a p***y and I say it as it is.
    4) is it not true that most paedos are White? Hmmm
    5) now shut up cos we could be here all day with this RACIST crap.

    Ps if any of you actually went to china you would see it's actually a decent place and ive never been conned because I have a brain!

    Yes I am a "Yank", I dont like what your saying About AMERICANS. Apple is an AMERICAN company, What is the last good thing to come out of england, The world would be nothing with out the USA and canada, So Take your Queen, Royal Family and Driving on the wrong side of the road and shove it up your ***, You call americans dumb but england still has a queen. You started this buy calling the Country that provide most of the worlds entertainment (Music Movies ect) and some of the coolest Computers (Apple Of course) Stupid.
