TNP is promoting her weekly food column as "Singapore's Nigella Laurence", where she dresses up and poses with food (picture to word ratio 7:3) and writes headlines like "Hedy loves her meat". With a "journalist" like that, how to take what she says seriously?
I don't see how any worthy information is drowned out here since the idle banter is mostly isolated to the last few pages. It simply means the discussion on the thread topic has run its course
My personal guess is that the previous journalist, Ho Lian Yi, kena whack left right and centre on CS after the article published, so the editor asked "SG Nigella Laurence" to do the follow up story. Maybe the CS community will be softer on a friendly female face?
always the Light, .... always.
The second was IMHO, a "follow up" to squeeze whatever left from the first article. It just so happen that Averal became the lightning rod simply cuz she happens to be a member here and the community, still reeling from the impact of the first article, that CS is getting more spotlight for the wrong reason then it deserves.
It's like a 1-2 punch to the community here... it really cast us in a very bad light.
Not to mention... now CS is a bookedmarked site for all those sleazey web lurkers... the directories are still visible to everyone.. and more than Averal will be getting unwanted requests for sometime to come.... by simply saying that she's doing it for the benefit of warning other models, she's opened a floodgate of unwanted spotlight not only on the forum itself... but also unwanted attention to the model directory listing.
And perhaps, a lot of wanted spotlight for herself.
