And what is the point of that admonition? Is it going to achieve anything on a chat forum? Although the ad was made by Cathay Pacific, the management of the airline's home airport the Hong Kong Airport Authority decided the ad had to be taken down. Same with Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway Corporation. These are two massive corporations! What I wonder do you call them?

Actually, they reversed their ban after a couple of days.
