Thread: Who likes to Stomp?

    Default Who likes to Stomp?

    Personally, I think Stomp was a bad idea... people complain about every small little thing... post photos that are supposedly private, and more people are losing the virtue of 'forgive and forget'.

    What do you think?

    but its a way of making ppl subconsciously conforming to the society... its like every guy is a police...

    Hey Mod,
    I like the way u phrase it. They know they can control everything and everyone in Spore, but cannot control Internet, that's why they introduce stomp to get all to place their views in stomp so that they can monitor and sieve out info that they do not wish to make public- very smart people, will work on 70% of the population, but the 30% smarter ones would voice their own opinions in blogs of their own.

    One thing though, I really appreciate this Clubsnap forum: extremely informative and the guys here really share generously. Good job CS!

    Yea... and Singapore becomes less and less of a gracious society... It's not a bad idea to implement something like Stomp, but I personally think that a lot of news in there are overboard and ridiculous... and mostly insignificant. I think it's become more of a hip thing to report something there... suddenly, everyone's turned into the paparazzi.

    I don't Stomp at all, and I don't foresee myself even starting a thread there...

    Stomp is like a bunch of old aunties were let loose to gossip and scold people behind their back...
    I never go there. That it's being run by **** Press holdings is even more incentive not to.

    You can also see stomp as a form of surrogate parent educator. Since most parents have abrogated their responsibilities to ppl like the school and police instead of taking the time to educate their kids, stomp serves to allow the larger group to peer review some really horrible behaviour.

    OTOH, it's also filled with a lot of stupid kiddy folks that don't know better.

    When people obsess on the trivial stuffs, they forget the big picture. Thats its purpose.

    STOMP is corroding social values. Instead of doing something positive to stop the bad things the STOMPer see, he decides to take a photo of it.

    It's legitimizing Singapore's whiny, complain-centric culture.

    I think the Stomp is a good idea but the way they implement is the problem. Some complains are ok for public awareness but some are somehow overboard. I guess is the responsibility of the stomper and the guys at stomp.

    I dont stomp personally.

    since digital cams are getting cheaper, too many ppl have cams with them, so if they see any funny thing, they snap a pic then send to stomp without thinking about the after effects...
    there's even a anti-stomper website being set up.

    You sir, have hit the nail right on the head.

    My own less-elegant opinion would be: STOMP is for stupid people.

    Stomp is for sph to make money out of ordinary exclusive news for free. Simply put, they get leads for news storeys that they would otherwise have to pay.

    What kind of stories are this? Are they relevant? Ok, for those involved into an accident it really matters but how much does it matter for the rest of population, even those living next door? A lot of noise is created about little inane things with a half-life of a kopi'o.
