The Walt Disney Company is taking a series of steps to address local cultural sensitivities as it prepares to open Hong Kong Disneyland a little more than a year from now, the company's president said here Tuesday night. The new theme park will include local food and music and provide services not only in English but in two Chinese languages

Anyway, remeber the last time Disney did this for a park? It was DLP. The eventually had to close many sit-down resturaunts and open more fast food.
By the way, my friends from France are absolutely addicted to McDonalds.
I think your accusations of racism are rediculous, and insulting. You need to stop giving snap judgements and check your facts before charging someone with something as strong as racism.
Apologies will now be accepted

Any person with a bit of brains knows that the chinese restaurants in most countries don't serve these types of delicacies, and only a limited number of those in china eat Dog and Cat.
In china , and other asian countries, eating Dogs, and Cats is not a stereotype, nor an unreal thing, its accepted. A vietnamese friend of mine (when he lived in Nam) had a rooster for a watchdog, go figure!
Jeff will always be Jeff, too bad......... at one time I thought highly of him
Is this really such a big deal? It was a joke based upon a reality and he made that very clear.

Normal people avoid things they don't like. What's your problem?
3,000 posts... wow, that's a lot. What makes you think that anything more than a few of those posts have anything whatsoever to do with you? In case you couldn't tell, there are a few hundred very active people on this site, and I stop by to chat with them... not with you. I never said anything about hating it around here. The conversation is good, the people are good, and the occasional debate is good... it makes my day more interesting.
Did you honestly think that I frequent this site because you're here? I hate to burst your bubble, but...
As for "Jeff picking on everybody"... those are your words, not mine, leading me to believe that IS what you feel that you do. Whatever. It's your site. If it makes you feel like a bigger man or satisfies some kind of desire that stems from an inferiority complex, that's fine. You do what you gotta do.
Just like you, Jeff, I voice my opinion. If someone says something that I don't agree with, I tell my side of it. If someone says something stupid, I call them on it. Piss and moan all you want, but in the end, this is nothing more than a case of someone following a precedent that you set.
Have a good night. I'll try not to sob too much into my pillow :) Now, how many posts is this?

You've got it all wrong. I love that keep you posting and visiting the site. Every time you go off on some rant about what a bastard I am, or some other nonsense that describes how you've got me pegged, I get paid. Then I get paid again when someone else reads it. Keep sending those page views. You may single-handedly finance my wife's graduate school! Keep the tears coming...
Nothing you have to say will ever hurt my feelings, or make me like my life less. It's really fun to be me, even with all of the insecurity, fear, hope and love that I have. Some coaster nerd in New Jersey isn't going to change that.
Why on Earth would you think that my comments were meant to hurt you or "make you love your life less"? Your giving me too much credit- my intention wasn't to throw you into some sort of depression. If the words of someone you don't even know were able to bring down your self-esteem like that, I really do feel sorry for you. And speaking of "pegging" someone... isn't that what you've done by classifying me as "a coaster nerd from New Jersey"? At what point do you stop acting childish and start acting hypocritical? It seems like there is a fine line and I'm kinda curious to know.
It makes me feel all warm inside that you like having me post on your site... I was beginning to feel unloved, sitting at the edge of my own depression. If my presence increases your hit count and helps you pay for your wife's graduate school tuition, a downpayment on a new car or a condo in Hawaii, then I can go to bed tonight feeling like I have done something wonderful for someone. Does hitting "refresh" over and over again accomplish the same thing, or do I actually have to hit back on my browser and click on the link again?
Although that "you being a bastard" thing perplexes me. Another comment YOU made, which makes me wonder...

He also told me that when this stopped being fun, he would dump the whole thing down the toilet.
It's kind of comical that he trolls his own website in a feeble attempt to upset people he doesn't like, with literally no regard for how others perceive him.
Everyone should note the fact that he covets your site clicks only, and has no intentions to better the enthusiast community. CoasterBuzz is simply money in his pocket, and nothing else.
It's nice that at least his message boards are populated with generally nice people, unlike him.
Don't flatter yourself, Sam. I don't know you well enough to dislike you or anyone else. You and others that don't like what I do or how I do it aren't even on the radar in terms of important things in life.
I'm going to close this now because I don't think 99.9% of people care about your distaste for me. So you can run along to RRC or some other forum and cry about it there or call me a Nazi or whatever people do these days.
