    For example, when Ro-Ro responded to Van, he said:

    "don't talk about school if you don't want to.
    can talk about food etc etc etc"

    which way advising taking a platform of denial, aka, running away from the subject/life.

    I then pointed out that Denial was a bad thing, the he turns around and says that that was not what he meant, and that what he actually means was:

    "not saying to deny, some things are better left private no point dishing it out in a public domain. "


    If the latter was what he wanted to say, why can't he just say it simply?

    I've encountered this a few times before, and my response is the same: If you wanted to say ABC, why did you actually say XYZ, and then claim that you did not say it, till someone draws out evidence, the you go like ... err, what I mean to say was ABC.

    NOT NOT NOT pointing to RO-RO hor, but as mentioned, I've encountered this a few times already, especially among Singaporeans. Is it a twisted mind thing, poor communications abilities from people who are well-versed with using English as a medium, or what, exactly cos it's extremely frustrating, not to mention, very deceiving.

    Simply, it's an utter comms blunder, or a great way to try and cover up and retract a previous statement.

    It's a Singaporean thing, really. Without going into too much detail (because i'm supposed to be working, I have a ton of things that were due an hour ago, and i shouldn't be here), I understand what you mean. Just looking at any of the threads here that have had some form or other of conflict and you can see this occuring.

    But in this case, having known RO-RO(lol i can't believe i'm saying this) for more than 2 years, I can safely say I know him to a certain extent. And from what I know of him, he said what he did in the manner he did because he simply doesn't say things straight to the face. He implies, gets you to infer, and conveys his message without explicitly saying it. Of course, it doesn't always work out. I think, no I believe, he said it in this manner as he felt it would be more appropriate than to bluntly say that "somethings shouldn't be aired in a public forum" as it would seem as though he was doubting the intentions/integrity of any of the Exposers here.

    Ok this is the chapalang version, i have to go back and chiong that stupid $7+k powerpoint I'm supposed to be doing. Pardon any typos/mistakes.

    of course, maybe he just didn't realise that was the message it implied (that it was a platform for denial), cause i didn't realise of it either until you said it. haha maybe i'm just slow.
