I agree here with MS. What's the point of this thread? Don't you have a BFF or something you can call to gripe to? I'm really struggling to understand what the hell you're trying to accomplish with this thread other than being dramatic.
And why are you even trying to understand? It's none of your business.
Then why are you posting it on a public forum if you're not trying to make it the business of everyone that reads this forum? You've exhibited bizarre emotional and mental swings just in this thread, via a text format that isn't especially conducive to conveying the depth of emotion or mental state.

I suspect based on your display here most people are wondering what you haven't told us about this knife incident.

Back to that Chinese forum thing... You've already implied you don't read Chinese by saying you use Google translate. So how do you know he posted this? He just so happened to post on this forum when you were able to glance over his shoulder to see, and you were able to run back to your room, find one specific post on one specific forum on the Internet that also happens to be in a completely alien (to you) language and character set? And it happened to be about killing you? Really? :shock: :shock: Or is the truth more like you are (and have been) stalking this guy for a while now either by sniffing wireless traffic in the unit (a crime) or just good old fashion e-stalking? (maybe a crime, but definitely creepy?)

Or, this whole thing is a made up troll?

Your message does not make any sense. Obviously you lack sympathy and common sense towards another human being threatened by a knife. Looks like you stay in your room all day and never go out to meet all kinds of people. All I can say is, grow the hell up!

Why don't you go back to your cell and enjoy that biscuit. Seriously, it's truly none of your business in the first place.

On a side note, you might want to see a psychologist for your rude local attitude. You seem like the type that has pointed a knife at somebody. If that's the case, you should get the hell out of Singapore.
Whilst I havent held a knife to someone, I have acted in self defence when threatened, and yes it involved a pitch fork. (angry dog/owner vs me)

Please make up your mind. How am I supposed to leave Singapore if I'm a rude local boy, afterall, where else am I supposed to go *idiot*. :roll: :roll:

What part of what I said doesn't make sense? The part where I question you calling something you posted on a public forum for all to read 'none of my business'? Or the part where I call you out for e-stalking the guy?

jonive, if you take a look around this forum, you'll see that the regulars here try to give out information that explains things the way they really are. 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.

Yeah, I get nominated or something, unlike you. A disgrace to your family for trashing other people online and never get nominated for anything worthwhile.

You don't seem like the type to solve problems, but to create more for yourself and others. The truth is none of your posts make sense. If you cannot put your shoes inside the knife issue at hand, then it's none of your business. What else don't you get?

Watch it. If you continue the name calling, ad hominem attacks and false accusations, you will get banned. Now, play nice.

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.
