We are not talking about murder here, we are talking about blocking email 
which is a far less serious matter.

In the case of murder what happens to the murderer depends on the laws of the 
country the crime is comitted in.  There are many countries where you can 
literally "get away with murder" because of their lack of suitable laws and 
law enforcement.

This issue of different laws also corresponds to the spam situation.  In the 
English speaking part of the Internet if you don't respond to an English 
language complaint regarding spam then you are regarded as protecting the 
spammer and treated accordingly.  In Asia the rules are different.  So 
sometimes spammers get away more easily in the US because they will argue 
their case instead of just accepting a default judgement against them.

Note that in a civil trial, if you decline to attend the trial then the 
judgement will almost certainly not be in your favour.  Also note that in a 
criminal trial, trying to escape from custody before the trial will not help 
your case.

There is some confusion, when someone refers to an individual as "an Asian" 
then it's probably not meant in a nice way.  But referring to the policies of 
Asian governments is a totally different matter.

No offense at all.  I disagree with some of your statements, but I can 
understand why you make them, and we can spend some time in a friendly debate 
about them.
