hi there,
I am not from the countries you mentioned but more advanced countries if you want to know
Though we came here on a job opportunity for my husband, then slowly liked here and then got PR.
I got no qualms about my son doing NS.
My only concern is about his health.
This has been bad part of me to post, since my post has been posted to many websites like transition, independent etc by some almond2009.

So shocked when I found out.. I shouldnt hv posted my concern here.

Would like to check with admin on how to find out that our posts will be secure and used any where?

Unless you are from a country like India, Bangladesh, the sort, ya know what I mean, wouldn’t your country of origin afford you a better future given that Singapore is a microstate, you are not from here so don’t enjoy established family ties as incentives to put up with all the difficult issues like NS and your son has special needs.

It’s really funny to see all these strangers to OP cheerleading for a single goal - to retain the Singapore PR and having the OP’s son perform NS with special needs when they are not originally from Singapore without even considering anything else. The biggest factor among all the “everything else” is obviously what kind of options OP has. And nobody bothered to ask before piling on their “ advice” for him to invest two years of his son’s life into something which has claimed Singaporeans and PR’s lives during peacetime.

Every single developed country is a better place to live than Singapore, even the better developing countries like Malaysia gives an equal to better experience.

As this is an open forum which anybody can read there is nothing stopping anybody from copy/pasting the contents of a post to another board. In fact, a lot of our threads have been copie d in full and posted verbatim on other sites for nefarious reasons. There is NO protection anywhere on the www that will prevent plagiarization of the written word. If somebody can see it, they can copy it. Such is life.

vlogin - I have closed your spam report. As SMS mentioned we cannot stop anyone from copying the contents of this website to any other website. Such actions are generally legal. Even rag websites that attempt to enforce copyright on their own news sites (the local birdcage liner comes to mind) find it is virtually impossible to prevent unwanted use of content.

I have seen my own posts copied verbatim to other websites as though someone else were the original author. Not much to be done about that, I'm afraid.

Vlogin - there is nothing to worry about. Your post had nothing identifiable in it. The local yokels like to hate the more successful FT's who come in and rightly displace their incompetent overpaid asses is all.
