Stop creating many China oriented threads. There are already threads on China economy and military watch. Pretty much everything that China does can be added to that.
Else have one thread that combines every thread on China and include Hing Kong issues and Taiwan and call it as One China thread or CPC thread.
Creating thousands of thread on China is madness, which does not match with the core principle of China, i.e. Harmony. See, I am not joking. :-

I'm already refraining myself to such an extent that I had intended to create a new thread called Chinese Rocket Engines but I think it's unnecessary at least for the present.

It's ok. We need to see how our northern neighbor is doing in all spheres of life, social, economic, technology, military, and space due to the fact that China is our premier threat.
