I've heard you shouldn't go there with any expectation of respect from the other posters or that you shouldn't make statements about any controversial or uncontroversial interpretations of Chinese history.

Not true. I'm the admin of China History Forum, and you will be surprised that some members over there make many controversial interpretations of chinese history and we still allow that, provided that they continue to respect other members' view.
