    First off, I would like you to know that, yes, you are wasting your time airing your grivances in a forum that has little or nothing to do with politics.

    Secondly, the fact whether i hold a pink NRIC has little or not bearing as to do with how i moderate kopi-tiam. I do not appreciate your insinuation and neither do i think what you have been saying is fair to the rest of CSers here who abide by the rules.

    This is what i will put across to you and anyone else who thinks they are allowed to post what they want with impunity and get away with it.

    I have said it once before and i will say it again.

    If you want to whine abt Government policies, then find the appropriate channel to do so. This is not the place for you to do so. If you are not sure where to do so, I would be happy to assist. (ST Forum, Feedback Unit, MP Meet The People Session et al.) If you so wish or desire, i would actually be as kind as to forward your grieviences so the appropriate committee/department. Should the question of identity be raised, then I would gladly be more than happy to point them in your direction.

    You can consider it high handed or think of it in anyway you wish but I am quite sick and tired of arm chair critics who whine and have no wish for any form of responsibilities when it comes to proposing a viable solution.

    So its time to put up, or shut up.

    You choose.

    Meanwhile, it has come to our attention that most of your threads are either in B&S or have the following thread titles;

    "Do you think PR contribute to Singapore development ?"
    "I'm disappointed with the 7% increase for GST ."
    "Are Singaporean Kiayn Si and Kiayn Su ??"
    "Why Married Young Adults dun want to hv babies?"
    "Is Police doing a good job ? Anybody spot any $10 software or DVD seller recently ?"

    I think this should suffice and what you have typed so is a very good indication where you are coming from.

    What you have chose to expressed here is simply a reflection of the kind of mentality you have.

    Wolfgang , you had take it too personally , if not you will not start this thread at all , this is all i can tell you . Well if you are saying that you are helping a repondsible hand in this forum then I think you are doing quite ok so ps do not bring your anger in your words .

    What Darren had wrote and explain is good , Darren is a real Gentleman and the clean line is being drawn straight after.

    And thanks for bringing back some of the things I had wrote and this as well show your mentality as well .

    As my usual self no hard feeling .

    I can understand the frustration of Free Agent, as well as, the concerns of the moderators.
    This thread could become a great discussion topic, and could leads us back to the political table. Wondering would it get locked at some point.

    In a post, Darren implies that one could invite unwanted call up in the middle of the night for discussing some sensitive topics over the internet forum. I am very disturbed by this statement, if it holds any truth. Looking at it, I will ask: what is the difference between Iraq and Singapore? Is political assassination next on the card?

    So far the moderators have done a fairly good job in maintaining the balance.
    I know the rule in Kopitaim is no discussion on topics with political intend.
    One thing leads into another, when talking about social life; photography businesses and money will definitely lead us back to political discussions.
    A simple discussion like the increase in the price of photography equipment would lead to GST, and discussion on GST will lead us to politics.
    So is it possible to stamp out political discussion in CS and shut everyone mouth?
    Free Agent is not the First and will not be the last in CS.
    Or is it better to correct misconception in political issues through open discussion and dialogue? And all these of cause must be done in a balance manner.

    Would CS do our society a favor by giving Democracy a chance?

    I have no answer to these questions; they are just some of my thoughts.

    I guess the next thread to be locked is "Smrt makes $40.0m Profits" by I'm The One.

    Me sitting on the fence lobbing grenades into both sides. Very soon both sides will shot me off the fence.

    A PM = No Show, we also need the SM and MM to get the show going.

    I have Passion in my words and for my Country , I got no intention to personal attack any people here . That's that .

    Whether you or he or she take it differently , it's a choice in your life .

    I was told that what I had wrote did not reflect any of my personal opinion and solution and that's not right and not true because I will make my effort to contribute regarding how things can be better . I would not bring in what I have wrote before , those written can be found easily and you guys have to decide yourself because I'm tired , I need a rest.

    Lastly thanks for a intro to the *** forum , I will start writting there soon .

    Actually Silence Sky, you brought up a good point. The comment about getting a phone call in the middle of the night. Was that statement saying might get a phone call. Or has a phone call already been made? If it is the latter, does that mean the ISA is watching the forum and keeping tabs on all of us? Then will I "disappear" in the middle of the night? It is frightening!

    Also normally such "arguements" would be done via PM. For the mod to openly post it in language that seems that he is taking it very personally doesnt really look good on the forum nor the mod.

    Relax brother!! You are a good man.
    Be contented, at least you are given the freedom of speech here.
    The Moderators have given you alot of face. They just lock the thread and that's all, they did not remove it. Everyone still gets to read your threads.

    Mr Egg, I don't know. Anyway I will off my phone before I turn in for the night.
    When you don't get to see my ID for the next few days, please tell the rest to be very careful with what they post in CS, will you?

    Uncle,

    I thought the thread you started ABOUT WOLFGANG was quite errr.... personal

    Personally, I do hope that the moderators give more leeway in kopitiam. As long as not against the laws of singapore, some healthy discussions should do no harm. My 2 cents.

    It's perfectly fine to allow for a greater latitude of discussion, but the downside is that this is a specialised forum, and not a general one.

    There are countless local blog communities and forums that engage in no-holds-barred political discussion daily.Those are better platforms to raise your case. However, I am one of those who believe that the old adage of "a call in the night" hampers civil society development because it breeds fear in a corporate state.

    Dear All,

    What Darren have shared was clearly meant to be taken with a pinch of salt. However, the general rule of thumb we have in place is simple. No discussion of anything political/religious/seditious in nature. I honestly do not think it is too difficult to understand.

    As for the provision of a greater latitude and having more lee way in terms of what CSers are allowed to discuss, I would like to reserve the right not to do so at the moment since this is a photography forum and we have seen innocent postings in the past that had been blown right out of proportion. There are alot of other forums out there that welcomes such discussion. Please make your presence felt there should you feel the need to discuss politics.

    We honestly do seek your understanding in this matter please.

    Thank you.
