How about a 汉子 only group?

Tags: Chinese corner, conversation, discussion, debate

In Tal's racism post, there has been some debate about using too much English here at Chinesepod.  Actually, I would like to have more conversations in Chinese, but these two factors have turned me off in the past:

  • Sometimes my Chinese comments are totally ignored.
  • I don't like entering a conversation/debate that keeps switching between Chinese and English.

I think we can agree, a group that communicates totally in 汉子 would solve both problems.

So what I am asking is:

  • Are there others that would be interested in such a group?
  • How to structure the group so that people continuously stay involved in it (i.e. I don't want to start something that will fizzle in a week or two)?

Sadly, I have to head for work now, so I won't be able to add feedback till possibly, gulp, tomorrow, but I would really like to hear what people have to say.
