    Actually I think they only took 1 or 2 parties to court. The rest were all shooting letters of demand only.

    Streetdirectory.com is a stupid design with the flaws of navigating a book built into a online system. Unfortunately there was no better alternative. I hope some company will build a better logical system now that streetdirectory.com is gone.

    To a small company or the layman, shooting an LoD or C&D letter is as scary enuff.

    Like what was reported in Today like 2 or 3 days ago, the general layman knowledge of the Courts is still pretty low.

    Why is it a stupid design? I find it more convenient to search an online system than a physical book when a computer is accessible.

    Yep that is unfortunately true. Thats why people still get conned by various legal or officious sounding mechanisms - e.g. security guards making up their rules, poeple calling you from the "Court" saying you owe money, police telling you its a "civil case" etcetc

    It's hard to navigate the online map, slow, small, etc etc. Especially if you need to plan a long route across several places, it's far easier to flip a paper map/street directory.

    The map.gov.sg is so lousy. I can't do a proper search for the past few days. Sometimes it just searches for more than 10mins, i couldn't bother to wait..

    oh yeah that's quite useful...maybe GoThere should do something about it, but personally at the moment, it still seems like the best option for me...definitely not going back to looking at adverts of florists on SD haha.

    Nice. It does SMRT buses as well as SBS buses (streetdirectory only did SBS buses).

    Yup my friends were quite impressed with Gothere too, maybe they were too used to the old SD. Personally, I like the interface, very easy to use.
