In some cases, this involves educated guesswork as to how the relevant authorities might react to a given situation, application, etc., based on the experience of living here and feedback from hundreds of people on this forum over the years. The idea is that you won't necessarily get the response you want to hear, but you will get as realistic a picture of the current situation as 'we' (the forum community) can give you. We may or may not (collectivlely or individually) think that any given policy, situation, etc. is 'right', but the idea here is to avoid giving sugar-coated replies that might look nice in your browser window, but in reality will be of no use.
I expect many others, like me, felt some sympathy on reading your first post. Obviously we only have your side of the story, but clearly any threat of violence is a serious matter. However, a number of posters have tried to point out that you are unlikely to get the outcome you want, based on (a) it being your word against the other person's, and (b) in the general opinion of those who have posted here, the police are unliklely to act in those situations. This information was largely given not as a view on the 'rightness' or 'wrongness' of the situation, but as realistic advice.
With your argumentative and at times aggressive replies to many posts, all you have done is get everyone's backs up and you can see the result above. Nobody likes to be insulted and many people will respond in kind when that happens. The result is that I'm sure any initial sympathy has now greatly diminished and more questions have opened up about what really happened. And I really don't get the bit about it being none of zzm's business - as he said, you posted your message on a public forum, so if he wants to respond in that forum then he is free to make it his business. Welcome to the World Wide Web!
Frankly, I don't see the point of you continuing your arguments here - unless all you really want is to have a slanging match as a way to get this out of your system. TBH your behaviour up to now doesn't fit in very well here. I can think of another ('Angry') board where you might feel more at home if you're not able to calm down and see things a bit more logically.
I get your point of view, and I do appreciate your more "civilized" response. But if you're going to respond, at least put yourself in my shoes and understand that I am the victim of a knife threat / intimidation incident here, and justice is not being served. I am sure if the same exact situation happened to you, you will most definitely feel the same way.
Think about it and read the posts from others here. Some have told me to get out of Singapore, some have accused me of telling a fake story and others don't even think I deserve any justice at all. With all these accusations from your regulars, what do you think my reaction would be?
I am not looking for sugar-coated responses. I was simply asking that given my situation whether justice has been served. I certainly did not expect a bunch of kids running around giving these sort of childish silly replies and calling me an idiot on top of that.
And why would you tell me whether I fit in or not? I am sure your regulars have bullied other newbies here, and they certainly don't feel welcomed. If power tripping is your thing, then 99.9% of newbies won't fit in. Get my point? I certainly don't think I am the problem here and not even once.
