At the very least you might want to review:


Renesys provides one data point but there are others that clearly show traffic routed *through* China (meaning they did indeed originate/hijack, and then pass data on to the original destination).

Just because there are people in the know (or with gravitas) that don't post on nanog doesn't mean it didn't happen.
