Changing an IP is relatively easy, however who needs to go to that extreme. No need, just visit a proxy listing website (www.ImNotGoingToMakeItThatEasy.com), grab a proxy address and port, and plug it into your browser. 'Tada!' fixed, new IP.

Better approach for registrations is verification services, SMS messaging etc. It's much harder to change a HP number than an IPA. If no HP, then must have POP or IMAP desktop mail for verification. Again harder to get than webmail.

If you're on SingNet, you don't need to do anything at all, everything goes through their load-balanced proxy network so your outgoing IP changes with every single HTTP request. (Confuses the hell out of some websites too...)

Sending SMS costs money, and there's no way to verify whether an e-mail address is read via webmail, POP or a trained group of lesbian jumping beans.

It's a free forum, and we'd like to keep it that way. Spam's one of the small prices to pay, and that's what us moderators are here for...

Of course i dont agree on that statement. Im a local Singaporean female. And i have friends from other parts of the world and i treat them equally just like another human. Race is just a colour.
Some of whom i met became good friends and we even end up travelling together. Im sorry if you have met low-life shallow minded individual, and i hope that you dont judge us Singaporean just based on a few bad encounter.

The best way to meet people is to go to group events (see the forum set up for this), instead of taking your chances with the dating lottery and meeting random people one-on-one.

The more I am knowing Singapore, the more I am getting a feeling that Singaporeans probably prefer Singaporeans to be their friends !!

True dat -- most Singaporeans take the view that expats are fly-by-night types who won't be around for long, belong to a different social class, and don't really appreciate/understand the local culture, so going beyond a casual social acquaintance into "true friends" isn't easy.

Nadya, it's sad to say, but let's just agree to disagree.

I've been here 28+ years and it's like the Kiasu Syndrome. It's also like the overt rudeness and inconsideration Singaporeans show to others. It's NOT the majority who are like this. It is a minority, BUT the majority get tarred by the same brush. The stereotypes stick where the percentages of these types of behaviours are higher than in other places. Let's say ALL Asians are Kiasu (and they are, to an extent) and lets say that around 10 percent of the population of Asia exhibits that trait. Then we come to Singapore and WOW 20% of Singaporean exhibit that trait. still a minority only two out of every 10 Singaporeans are that ways. But, it's twice as bad as your neighbours. THAT's what everybody remembers. Not the 8 who are normal but only the 2 out of 10 that's abnormal. Most Singaporeans don't know anybody outside of the country at all ('cept maybe a rellie who immigrated to Perth or Vancover).

:shit:

make more sense

Postby doncare2002 » Tue, 10 Aug 2010 1:32 am

i find the post by "sundaymorningstaple" so silly. did u ever asked all those ppl u came across whether they are singaporean or are they just staying in singapore? pls note that not all ppl staying in singapore are singaporean. and not all singaporean are brought up in singapore. singapore has 5 million people and around 2 million are not singaporean or born here. mostly are foreigners (of all level) working here, travelling here, or converted to singaporean at a later age.

so can i meet someone who is rude in cananda and then claim he is cansdian?? well, he/she might just be working there.

so next time anyone start making all these comments abt how badly singaporean behave should have a clearer mind and have the gut to approach the person and ask them where they are from. and before we make any comment, let's look at our own nationality and our how our own ppl behave in our country and how they behave when they travel before making such senseless comment.

then we will realise almost every countries have the same percentage of ppl behaving badly!!

so pls be wise. and of course, for anyone who dislike singapore so much, my advice to them is to leave this place and go back to their own country whom they are so proud of ( i wonder why they are in singapore in the first place............haha......).

shallow thought

Postby doncare2002 » Tue, 10 Aug 2010 1:42 am

i just wonder how "sundaymorningstaple" got all his statistic from? from his/her own research or just his/her imagination?? does he/she know that many ppl from USA do not even know ppl outside their town? many ppl from australia do not know anyone outside their nationality?? well, anything wrong with that?? obviously NO. because it is ppl choice and it is also the fact of life.

and to say singapore is more kiasu than others is so amusing. if the americian and so many other nations are not so kiasu, why they started the iraq war before they find any weapons of mass destruction? if australian is not so kiasu, why they throw out their PM and got a new one before the election even started? and there are so many kiasu cases all over the world. well, so many countries and her ppl are kiasu in many ways. we just have to be more culture sensitive and see from their point of view instead of just talking abt ourselves and our view.

and since u are staying here for 28 years. i wonder how many true singaporean friend do u have? how many friend of different nationality do u have? and i am saying true friend whom u can rely on at time of difficulty and not just merry friend. well, friendship is build on mutual support and trust and respect. it is not build on nationality or wealth. so what is the point of knowing friend from 50 different nationalities and onli to find none are ur true friend in time of needs?? in that case, i rather have friend from only one nationality and know that i can trust them and rely on them. so i must said it is a very shallow thinking and measurement of friendship and the way of looking at people.

so i hope u do wake up and start to look at world in a different way and not the shallow way.

all the best to u and happy national day (singapore national day)

Strange dude you are. What statistics are your referring to? Or couldn't you understand what "for example" means. You really need to learn to read for content.

for example.

Postby doncare2002 » Tue, 10 Aug 2010 2:18 am

the funny thing is that person who said others do not know how to read the content is actually referring to itself.......because there is no usage of "for example" in his content at all.........

what a laughing stock..........hahaha........

anyway, i will rest my case, i will leave it for the wise mind out there to judge for themselves who is making sense and who is not.

and NO for example here...........hahaahaaa

You tried here in 2008 for a couple of posts. You tried here in 2009 for a couple of posts. Now you are back again. Sounds to me like you don't have too many friends either. I'd say it's pretty much obvious why as well. With all your HaHaHa's I'd say you had to be a pretty insecure chinese fellow who actually has as thing "against" expats. Ever since you first foray onto this board, you have always harped on the same thing. Somehow, if after two or three years of that, and you still don't have that many expat friends, I'd have to wonder at your approach. But again, if you approach is anything like here on this forum, well, let's just say, we'll still see you making the odd foray here in three more years time. Oh, and still attacking those who just speak the unvarnished truth.

You doncare, we doncare either..... :P

from the personal attack this person make, we can see what kind of person he/she is. well, he/she did not even have the guts to discuss abt the fact i brought forward. he/she start be become silent after hearing those fact (obviously because he/she has nothing to offer). so what is best he/she can do?? some personal attack. so now we all know this is someone living in singapore behaving in this way. pls do not mistaken him/her for a singaporean. hahaha.........also, to make racial remarks is so cheap and low class. this is the kind of person trying to offer his/her view point on singaporean. so what conclusion can we draw from this?? well, he/she has not credential at all.

i am glad all can see what kind of person he/she is now. and i will rest my case because i am successful in exposing him/her and letting him/her show his/her true colour and manage to discredit his/her nonsense write up.

Thanks all for reading and hope u all can avoid this person at all cost because he/she has no place in Singapore if he/she cannot even respect different views and become is a racist.

Racial remarks? What racial remarks? You are Chinese are you not? Your words, not mine. Guess we now know what kind of troll you are. You sound a xenophobic to me.

Your facts? :? Facts maybe only in your own mind. :-|

This is your posting of Saturday Jul 19, 2008....

Anthea/yvonne or whatever you name is, do you have a personality problem? Now you have registered another nick. I guess when your Dane husband comes home from work he is never quite sure who he will find.
