Just some maji! No big deal!

Two air force pilots on a training exercise were photographed that, as seen in the canopy, they had brought with them two boxes of maji, a local specialty of Hualien county, often used by visitors as a gift. Many criticized that they should not use the F-16B fighter belonging to the taxpayers as their personal cargo carrier, and the Air Force Headquarters promised to probe into this matter.

Personally, I don’t consider it a big deal. I can live with it as long as those flyboys know what they are doing. I believe that Army soldiers also use their trucks to haul something personal and it won’t be the first time our Navy sailors trying to smuggle some stuff onboard their vessels.

The ubiquitous internet is what made this a fuss. Some netizens just hide behind the screen all day trying to play the role of inquisitors. Their common features are lacking enough knowledge background of the thing they want to criticize and training in objectivity to do the criticism right. Therefore, the remarks they have made are often biased ones.
