which pass for public opinion in a land where no such thing exists can be found only in Seoul - Isabella Bird Bishop, 1898
Is it true that some of the AES site's contents have been removed (perhaps by themselves)?
Absolutely. As of Nov. 11, there were 6,299 posts on the site, but the most current post was numbered 9,921 - so one third have been deleted. Keep in mind that within ten days of forming, there were 2000 posts on the site(!). I've quoted an Ohmynews interview with the women in the Hongdae party pictures before, in which one of the women lists AES as a place where they were called whores and brothel keepers. I haven't seen anything like that there, so I imagine anything like that that could have been used in a libel case has been removed. What's interesting is the stuff painting foreigners as AIDS threats was not removed last time I looked. They obviously didn't consider it offensive.
