    This is what you posted

    "You're right, I do tend to entertain people who just want to argue for argument's sake. I must admit, sometimes I do it on purpose. Like thisthread for example. I intentionally created this thread in a moment ofhumour, knowing that a select group (not everyone, but a few) would notbe able to resist an onslaught on the OP"

    Sounds a lot like the first definition to me

    No no no, there is a difference. Entertaining an argument (in a constructive, non-bashful way) is not the same as initiating that argument in a trolling manner. Again, please don't confuse what I was saying. And again, I apologize for any misunderstanding.

    You don't need to apologise I really don't care I'm not angry or anything I'm not sitting here punching walls like I've said before I couldn't care less if you're the reincarnation of Bruce lee or a white belt making bs claims it doesn't matter to me either way it won't affect my life just simply stating my opinion

    Mandarins are fine but I prefer the easy peel Satsumas.

    Fair enough. I hope some day your opinion of me will change. Until then, just keep training and do whatever it is you do. Don't let your opinions stop you from attaining personal growth and development. That's something I have to constantly tell myself sometimes, as it can be easier said than done. But I am learning. You are learning. We are all learning. Best of luck to you my friend, and to everyone on MTalk.;)

    The problem of course is not 'Google's'' definition but MT's as you are here.

    Only one and I'm pretty sure he was having a breakdown, seriously. I haven't and believe me you'd be very offended if I decided to make you so. No one is setting out to offend you, learning to handle plain spoken words isn't an art, you read them, don't assume the worst and answer honestly.

    No one has trolled you here, if you take a look at archived threads you will see that people are pretty laid back and talk as they find here.

    No they're not, but I do know a few :D

    On the "fightin' " words bit in Beijing. If I think you're crazy and simply say "Crazy" that's ok. If I say "You're crazy" That is a problem. If I call you a turtle...that too could be a big problem if you're married or seriously involved with a woman. If I call your wife, daughter, girlfriend, mother a chicken....well that can be big-time fightin' words. And if we are both Chinese and martial artists, and I call you a "Grandmaster", or if the one calling the Chinese guy a Grandmaster is not Chinese and taken seriously in the Beijing martial arts world, well then a fight is potentially about ti happen.

    就像其他大城市,香港也有治安不好的地方,但是没有像电影那么危险。香港是一个很受欢迎的地方,吸引很多游客来港游玩。

    Just speak English to them. Maybe older people do not speak English but younger generation.

    Yeah, I know, it is a side effect of being ruled by the British, many in their 70s speak english in Hong Kong and the majority there also speak Mandarin. However there was a period, pre 1997, that if you tried to use mandarin in Hong Kong they would not respond to it. However they would teach you how to ask in Cantonese and then they would respond.

    Your sentence is not correct.
    你认为香港电影业遇害李小龙=you think hong kong movie industry got killed bruce lee
    你认为香港电影业杀害李小龙=do you think hong kong movie industry killed bruce lee
    You can not use 遇害, should use 杀害

    @oaktree @Mou Meng Gung Fu

    Hey guys, before we go to far down the Chinese road we should take into account MT Rule "4.18 Language". This is why I started posting translations next to what I was posting
