Offensive and racist. Next to last post in this thread by BruceAWittmeier:

There's nothing either offensive or racist in his post.
Thank you.

My first post in that thread and your response to me have already been moved to Locked. In the view of two moderators the post by BruceAWittmeier does not rise to the level of racist or offensive. If it disturbs you I can only suggest that you avoid that thread.

Bruce, who never intentionally meant any offense, realized that his comment might in fact cause offense. We subsequently sorted this out between ourselves via PMs.

To add, what the two of you don't appear to realize, or even begin to take into consideration, is that someone of Chinese origin (I am not, and most likely neither of you) might visit the site and feel offended by this demeaning racial caricature.

Locking this as unproductive.
