The first subject position hails the "clear-minded" person who signals as an adequate debater by always being on the same page as the speaker of NDoD. In actual debates, those who can perform properly follow the line of argument forged by popular liberal bloggers (major NDoD producers).
In fact, more often than not, NDoD directly addressed this third kind of subject.
To what extent common Chinese Internet users (4) were recruited by the NDoD and subject to their regulation requires empirical inquiry of these actors.
Even more vigorously than with the liberal bloggers, labels such as "brainwashed" and "brain-damaged" multiplied in the hands of common users, through which NDoD rippled across in the cyber-debating scenes.
In sum, as common Internet users answered to NDoD's interpellation, by performing as the purported adequate debater, the learner, or oscillating between the two subject positions, as well as by denouncing the unworthy debater, this debate culture with its indigenous values took hold and thrived.
In short, as it backfired on its initiators, the NDoD also strengthened, because a much wider range of players in discursive spaces became involved.
Discursive resources of speakers: A group of popular bloggers, loosely self-identified as "liberal" or "right," initiated the production of NDoD. In the Chinese context, liberal and right signify differently than in the West.
In myriad participatory acts of this nature, the NDoD continuously reframed individual anecdotes, historical narratives, and social commentaries and, in turn, itself became increasingly enriched, animated, and pervasive.
In contrast, the online NDoD called for the self-standing and -directing individual, marked by a thinking process clear of all "colonizing" influences from entities external to the individual--including the government, media, the education system, and even peers.
Han Han [April 14, 2008] went so far as to say, "The biggest obstacle on the path to democracy is the people." The NDoD counseled appreciation and pursuit of certain modes of public discussion.
The peculiar power of the imperative prescriptions in NDoD, first, lies in sabotaging whatever values or stances are perceived as dominant at the time.
