According to several native TW and HK speakers, the traditional and simplified forms of this character are the same, the character with no left vertical stroke. According to these native speakers, the form with a left vertical stroke is a hand-writing variant or "old-fashioned" calligraphy form. The "alternate forms" section is very, very misleading and should be fixed. 2601:645:4200:3753:6D05:2452:1BD5:F2D7 07:07, 19 September 2016 (UTC) 柯邁宇
