Nonsense, data manipulation+Wrong publication date Jan 2, 2011

That mechanical comparison ("Chinese users" vs "English speakers") is grossly incorrect .

The figures (even the most precise ones) do not tell the whole story. By the way, I would doubt even that statistics.

Also, an increasingly large number of "Chinese users" become and will become "users of non-Chinese speaking Internet" (if not "English speakers" themselves!).

And how many "English speakers" will become "Chinese speakers", not to mention "Chinese users"? Not even close that many.

And who are "Chinese mandarins" who "issued a decree"? This is the language of the Chinese Empire

Such news articles should have been published on April 1.

You misunderstood the text, that decree is for PROC (mainland China) press and publication only and not the whole world.
