Maybe some of you guys still remember that Inter has cooperated with Sina to establish an official website in China. Recently, quarrels outbursted between we nerrazurri and AV milan fans. As a result, Sina's AV administrator punished moderators of inter official forum, causing most inter fans leaving.Below is the letter we fans prepare to send to the club.
Explanation of the fans leaving incident on Sina Inter Official Forum
Introduction of Inter Chinese official forum: it belongs to Inter's Chinese official website, and is operated under the management of Sina sports forum. Since established, it enjoys high popularity and big flow rate, as one of the major platforms for the communication between inter fans in china. At the same time, in the scope of Sina sports forum, it coexists with other forums of big clubs, including AC Milan, Juventus, Roma, Man Utd,etc.
1 Cause: quite recently( due to the deletion of the original post, accurate date cannot be obtained), there appeared on AC Milan forum pictures that humiliate inter shirt( a beggar in inter shirt).Because their moderators were then offline, this post was left unmanaged. Following that, some fans in inter official forum posted pics insulting AC Milan shirt in response, which was immediately edited by the 2 moderators of inter official forum-feng zhi bai wu jin ji and xia shao zou shi zai 2004, with the insulting words modified, ID warned and the post undeleted. AC Milan fans, however, gave a strong response, and with threat of a total leaving, calling for hush punishment on inter official forum.
2. The active &positive attitude of inter official forum: interceded by the administrators of Sina sports forum, moderators of inter official forum immediately made an apology in written form ,to AC Milan forum and the Milan fans. At this point, the whole matter was supposed to end. However, one day later, AC Milan fans continued to threat the administrators of Sina sports forum, coming with more aggressive and unreasonable claims.
3. The unfair judgment of Sina sports forum: at 14:00, 12th June, after repeated discussions, the management of sports website announced the penalty results for feng zhi bai wu jin ji and xia shao zou shi zai 2004 to be as following: dismiss inter forum moderator feng zhi bai wu jin ji , and give xia shao zou shi zai 2004 a serious warning, lock eternally in the whole website scale the ID , IP of fans posting insulting pics. This action of Sina sports forum, however, doesn't follow any existing guide or managerial methods. Instead, the administrator give this unfair punishment from personal likes and dislikes. For a long time , the unscientific and unfair management model of Sina sports forum has caused Chinese nerrazurri's complaints and disfavour.
4. The inter fans on Sina inter official forum leave to protest: due to the unfair judgment on moderators and fans made by the administrators.,till now, all the moderators of inter forum have resigned, and most of the fans are willing to stand with these moderators, to fight for comparatively fair results. From 19:00,12th june, bejing time, inter official forum has broken down, with enormous posts of complaints and accusation, which call for the attention of authorities.
Afterword. Even in all the Chinese websites, it is rare to see moderators resigning and fans leaving in such a large scale. In terms of the cause of this “incident”, we hope the club can have a deeper thought on the cooperation with Sina, a deeper understanding of how Chinese nerrazzurri have been struggling to fight for their own rights, actively guide and judge the further development and the final result of this matter.
