Regarding the coming Powwow, I once said that if Dr. Linbin came, I would come even at the expense of losing projects. But I am now confirming NOT to attend the Powwow. It's not because that I am a person of changeable personality, but because, incidently, there's someone I don't like at the Powwow, and my strange character is that if I dislike somebody, I always try NOT to come to meet him/her in person.

My belief in good translator relationship is always based on mutual trust and faithfulness.

If some translator lies to fellow translators to protect his/her privacy or trade secrets, I believe it's his/her right to do so; that's his/her personal things.

But I can't stand anybody who is an opportunist and, even want to use some underhand stupid tricks to promote his business at the expense of a friend and fellow translator who once helped him.

No, this friend is not me, I just witnessed this and got angry and scared. How could I once wish to be a good friend with such a person and opened my heart to him, including some of my trade secrets?

There are lots of good friends here in this forum, without whom the forum would be dull and colorless. When you have problems, just shoot out and you get reponses. But please DO NOT hurt them.

I'm a person who never forgets people who helped me and said kind words to me. At the same time, I won't forget anybody who hurts his friends without hesitation and won't believe in him/her again until he/she really changed, EVEN IF he didn't do anything bad to me!

How strange I am! But this is my personality and it's as hard to change as any the personality of that kind of people.

My post reads negative throughout, but can't help it. Not everybody is perfect, but everybody can try to be honest to FRIENDS at least. And that's enough.
