The happiest day of my entire life.

Well, not really, but it’s nice to win — even if these popularity contests are rather meaningless. Thanks for the votes.

Random question or two — are you single? And what do you look like?

I’m “married.” If you look carefully in this blog, there is a photo of me with some other Chinese bloggers, but I forget where you’ll find it.

Update: Here’s the link. I’m in the front row, in the center.

Congratulations Richard. You deserve it. You’ve been one of the most solid and consistently engaging bloggers on China and Asia since I started reading around the Asian blog world. Thanks for all the great stories.

I was getting worried there at the end Richard.

I don’t like being on the Losing team. Just Kidding.

Congraduations on 1st place. Richard, SMILE for the camera next time.

Congratulations, Richard. You don’t know me, but I’ve been reading you for a while.

Congratulations Richard.

You really do have a very dynamic website running here. The layout is better than most other blogs sites, and you tend to bake interesting and provocative articles, which really stimulate discussions – often very interesting and useful debates, which people like me use to test ideas, and to strengthen arguments.

Thanks for putting so much of your time and energy into running Peking Duck. I always enjoy reading it, and I enjoy contributing to the discussions as well.

I’m so pleased that your this site was voted the best one. It’s popularity is a true testimony to its quality!

Best regards,
Mark Anthony Jones

Congratulations. Job well done.

‘m told periodically by readers that they can’t access the site, but I attribute this to China’s temperamental Internet, not to the great cybernanny.

Peking Duck carries on more weight. No diet needed. More truth and fighting against systematic misleading is needed.
