    Fake? Sure.

    All I know is that James Bond and Jason Bourne each have multiple passports from different countries, under different names with all the correct governmental stamps and approvals.

    Fake? Sure? Your words also fully showed who you are. Dare to swear to God? LOL

    Rita, you should try not to let yourself get so upset about these things. Try to calm down. Maybe a little Falun Gong would help?

    You response is very puzzling. You seem to be upset with my post, yet you put the LOL at the end.

    Yes, I will swear to God, "which is a sincere "Oath" to God regarding a situation or show great "Sincerity and/ or Conviction" to a conversation or beliefs" that James Bond and Jason Bourne were fictional characters in films (or maybe the films were documentaries ?!? Hard to know these days) o_O

    Beijing opposed President Tsai and her political party, and they weren't happy that she was elected. After her election they set about trying to dismiss her, her government, and the vote itself. Then suddenly a whole mob of personas (I don't know if you are separate people or one person using multiple log-ins) appear here on Degreeinfo attacking the Taiwanese President's education.

    I still don't know what you hope to achieve by doing that, since her doctoral degree wasn't why she was elected.

    Presumably all of you are smart enough to see that by avoiding those issues and attacking President Tsai personally, simply in hopes of weakening her, you are acting (wittingly or unwittingly) to further Beijing's agenda in these matters.

    Looking down at the bottom of the page, and it says that 880 people are recommending this thread on Facebook. Which suggests to me that some group or organization is behind what you are doing.

    So how did you initially become interested in the subject of Tsai's degree? If, as it seems, there's a group behind this, how was the group assembled and by whom? Who are you people, really? Whose interests do you serve?

    Now you're attacking the University of London. They awarded her the degree and they verify its authenticity. Whatever they did or didn't do in Tsai's case was up to them and subject to their procedures. (And I'm unfamiliar with their procedures.)

    I will say that while I don't have anything even approaching absolute confidence in anything that any university does, I do have far more confidence in the University of London than I do in an internet mob with hidden political motives.

    You are a member of a mob charging in here intent on nothing besides insulting Dr. Tsai. (For reasons that remain unknown but can easily be inferred.)

    heirophant has made what I consider to be an extremely fair summation and so on that note I'm going to lock the thread. I will explicitly ask our Taiwanese friends to resist the temptation to start another, similar thread. There is no point and I will look upon it with disfavor. On the other hand, if they would like to stick around and discuss issues related to online higher education I'm sure we would all welcome their input.

    There seems to be an unusually large number of news stories right now about the general crackdown on fake degrees in India. If you follow it a bit you begin to be impressed with how serious they seem to be about rooting out all these fakes. But then you also come to be impressed with how wide and deep this problem really is. One example
