You are doing the community of China bloggers a great service, at a great expense of your time. I'm not sure if anyone has taken the time to simply say: Thank you. If they have, and I'm a day late and a dollar short, what the hell, one can never get enough thanks for a selfless job done well.
All the best,

Joseph thank you for your kind comments. I genuinely enjoy doing it and find it more than worth the time invested.posted by: Simon on 07.22.04 at 06:17 PM [permalink]
I'll second that Joseph. Hell I can't even read half the links listed but I think it's important to 'get it out there'.posted by: Guy on 07.22.04 at 07:40 PM [permalink]

Joseph, Simon's not only doing the community of bloggers a great service, he's doing a great service, full stop.
You might have seen the HELP message above in the SE Asia section. That was a link to a request on my site from a young women called Cory in the Philippines. Cory's father is a migrant worker in Iraq, at Camp Anaconda, whose family had not heard from him for some time. They were obviously worried because although there's a lot of news about troops, not much gets told about Filipinos working in sometimes dangerous conditions.
I'm fairly certain that the woman who visited my my site and subsequently helped Cory contact here father came via Asia by Blog. You can read the upshot here.posted by: Stephen Frost on 07.26.04 at 03:10 PM [permalink]
