Wednesday, September 21, 2005Bloggers beware
Came across a newspaper article a few days ago, about 2 bloggers in S'pore who were charged with racist remarks on their blogs. Saw it on TV again today...I think one of them could be jailed for up to 3 years. 3 years?!?! Blogging is a dangerous game, man! I didn't know until then that someone could be arrested for saying some stupid things in the virtual world. I wonder whether local authorities enforce the same rules here...don't wanna be lying in a jail cell and kena rotan 3 strokes, no, no, no, not me. But hey, this is not some politically driven blog...I write for pleasure, that's all. True though that you really gotta watch what you write, even on the net. Freedom of speech is one thing, getting nabbed for saying something dumb is another.
Just had dinner with TF today...wow how long was it since we went dinner together? Should be a memorable day today. Thanks man for coming out. Just like the old times...sigh.
