Hmmm, that'll ruffle a few feathers. I wonder if the Economist will be, ahem, 'gazetted' again for a while.

The internet should not be exempt from the laws of defamation. It is perfectly possible to have a free and vigorous debate without defaming anyone, as occurs often in Singapore


I like the ambiguity at the end of this sentence... So then, defamation occurs often in Singapore? :lol:

Maybe they could pursue with equal vigour the racial vilification being posted online, eg the blood stained Singapore thread!

Has anyone else seen the latest post on Roy Ngerng's blog, from this weekend?

Oh - my - God... :shock:

And I'm not going to say anything else about, or even link it.

I hope for his own sake he knows precisely what he is kicking off.
