I want to get something clear here, however:  Is Liu Xiaobo a Wikimedia 
user and is it possible that he has been banned from zh.wikipedia?  If 
so, that is something legitimate to discuss here and continue this 
thread.  Certainly people of his stature have participated with editing 
Wikipedia in some capacity or another. Otherwise, this indeed was an 
inflammatory remark being made here.  The moderation certainly is 
reasonable.  Heck, I've been banned from other forums for stuff far less 
caustic than this and Peter hasn't even really been banned here.
