The least you could do was give proper credit for your plagiarized posting. I notice that you have cut and pasted it from www.angryangmo.com which was posted on 5 December. Pretty sad. Why didn't you just paste a link like this:

http://www.angryangmo.com/2008/12/05/th ... singapore/


............................................................................

Dear SMS,

I took it from another forum whereby in that flora, the culture is such that there is a lot of cut and pasting by forumers to discuss issues, give opinions, furnish valuable information for people...ET AL

Nobody gives two hoots where forumers get their discussion topics from....whether it is original work or from somewhere else which may provide interesting ideas...etc to the uninitiated and ignorant.

As life is short, and u are coming to your 60 years of age.....why get work up over a trivial matter like plagiarizing...blah blah blah....

There are more serious issues like degree mills originating from the west and serious plagiarizing by college students from the internet in order to get their degree/thesis..

So, lighten up matey...... :wink:

I'll bet you use pirated software and bootleg dvds from M'sia as well don't you. :P

You sound pretty knowledgeable about plagiarizing stuff for degrees as well. :o

The culture here is to give credit where credit is due. When in Rome, et al.

Oh, I'm not coming on 60! I passed it a while ago. :P Just hope you are able to do as I'm able to do when you get there.

:lol:

Just because other people do it does not make it right. Why don't you provide the link to the forum posting you got the article from and let us see for ourselves whether that one linked back to the original or acknowledged the source?

As you can see from this thread, people do give a hoot.

Because it is wrong, and I'm glad there are people who will stand up for what is right.

You are welcome to stay here but obviously you are more comfortable down with the "slippery" slime at the other site who, as you say, are adept at trying to steal credit for something they didn't create.

You even had to try to make a play on my nick. This is typical of some of here as the majority here are followers and not really leaders here so cannot come up with anything original but just modifications of somebody else ideas. I even had other regulars commenting on your similarly styled nick when you first started posting.

You aren't doing either actually, you are saying somebody elses piece and giving their advice. None of it's yours at all......

I don't need the :x smilie, but what I really need is a *pity* smilie for you.

:P

I know you are around 60 years of age, 1.75m and successfully brought your weight under control to around 70kg and you have a Chinese wife.


I am in my early 50s and thank God, you and I managed to outlive many of the tragic Kennedy's family members and some other famous ppl. [Robert Kennedy died @ 42; JFK died @ 46; Fred Mercury died @ 45, Elvis died @ around 42, Andy Gibb @ 34, Bruce Lee died @ 32....etc.

I take a morbid interest in such state of affair. I think if a person can reach 3 score years @ 60; he / she should be contented and feel blessed.
Of course, ceteris paribus, he / she must be healthy and with the resources to live a simple life yearly until he / she leaves this earth.
Every addidtional year after that is a bonus.

I know of many close friends and acquaintences died b4 or around 50.

I am an active sportsperson in racket games and basketball especially when I was doing my degree and masters in my 20s, 30s & 40s.

So every day is a bonus for you and me.


Everything is emptiness and a chasing after wind,
Dust to dust, ashes to ashes,
A time to live and a time to die........

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. .....

The problem here is that you are enjoying good in other people's labour...

Fyi, I know much earlier on that SNS is a handgun. It was in the back of my mind when I chance across ur nick which ignite n refresh my memory. Nothing is permanent. We are just passing through this place.....

I was generally speaking of my net experiences as a whole.....so I miss out one here or there, big deal. The end justifies the means, do you get it?.......

WOW! Considering it's all here in this site and the Angry Board as well you didn't do too badly in English Reading Comprehension.....

You did manage to get two out of three correct. :roll:

Yeah, I got it long ago. That's why I find your kind so laughable! :P
