what is the fuss?

this blog post claims that mister wong (a german & chinese social bookmarking site) is "offensive" to asians? huh? just like askjeeves was offensive to british people? unlikely.

being chinese, i don't find it offensive at all. but neither do i find it runny funny. why would mister wong be more of a master of my bookmarks than say, mr. smith, or mr. bloggs, or mr. nakamura? it's just an arbitrary name that is supposed represent a, according to this interview, "somewhat more multicolored and an emotional figure created." if that is the case, then yeah, it did stir up some emotion, didn't it?
