Steve Barber & his "Academic" Site in Korean News

The Korea Herald has a new article on Steve Barber entitled, "Seeking to covey the truth about Dokdo."



In the article, Steve describes his Web site as "a forum through which Koreans may convey their messages about Dokdo to the world." However, Steve's site is not a "forum." Google Dictionary defines "forum" as follows:
A forum is a place, situation, or group in which people exchange ideas
and discuss issues, especially important public issues.
There is no discussion or exchange of ideas on Steve's site, and he does not seem interested in conveying truth. Steve's site has no discussion forums, which would give people an opportunity to refute his silly claims. It is just a Dokdo propaganda site operated by a man who used to go around to different Web sites promoting Korea's Dokdo claims using multiple, anonymous IDs until his identity was finally exposed.

Here is another quote from the article.

Some Japanese claim that he is taking side with Korea, his wife's homeland and that his arguments are largely biased, he said.

"I, however, see myself as an academically devoted person to this specific historical issue," he said.

If anyone is interested in seeing just how unbiased and academic Steve is, you can go read the posts on his site at the following address: http://www.dokdo-takeshima.com/

  1. I thought he was gone because I haven't heard of him lately. Is he still claiming the same ridiculous thought? No progress....

    He has not yet brought us his homework - the true evidence that shows Korea knew and used Liancourt Rocks before 1905.

  2. "As he wished to stay uninvolved with government organizations, he largely had to input his personal time and money in finding, analyzing and translating the relevant data. "

    That is a total lie. (Well, most of the aritcle on him is a lie anyway.) When 慶尚北道 government officer made contact with him through e-mail, since there are nowhere to comment on his so-called "forum", he was in seventh heaven and reported it to us. But apparently from this article, Korean government gave up on him after they realized that this guy is not that useful since he thinks Usando in 1711 map is Jukdo and the one of the 5 fuzzy circles on south is Dokdo/Takeshima.

    This is what he said on occidentalism last November.

    "The map you see above was the infamous chart used by Gerry Bevers to say Usando was Jukdo Islet. This chart was based heavily on the Ulleung Sa-Jeok by Jang Han Sang which was written about 15 years before Inspector Pak Seok Chang’s map that I linked to you from above.
    ・・・
    On page six of the Ulleungdo Sa-jeok records an island far off 300 ri to the east-southeast of Ulleungdo, this was no doubt Liancourt Rocks. On the map I linked you to, there can be seen an island drawn in directly beside the character for east-southeast. (è¾°) Knowing there was other data borrowed from the Ulluengdo Sa-jeok on this map, it is not at all unreasonable to state this would be Dokdo island from Jang Han Sang’s survey."
