We are helplessly forced to write in English because Chinese characters are simply too hard to learn.
How are we supposed to send SMS to our family who don’t speak English? What if we want to create literature in Chinese? Are we forced to learn Characters?
What if we also want to use English in our Chinese speech, intermingling English and Chinese words? Chinese characters makes it too hard to do that!
We need our own language, and our own voice on the new medium – the Web.
We refused to learn Chinese characters and we aren’t afraid of breaking the mould!
