Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore Dissident will not accept anymore comments from readers unprepared to identify themselves. The author of Singapore Dissident, Gopalan Nair, is prepared to say who he is, state his full name and all contact particulars including phone number, fax and Email. Singapore Dissident believes that writing about Singapore politics is a serious matter, and not a joke, and not something you go about doing from behind a mask because you are afraid.
Stating ones political beliefs is a serious matter, something one should be proud to do. The aim is to spread the message to as large an audience as possible, pointing to the disastrous political situation in Singapore; so as to urge the public to rise, challenge and change the government for the better. This is not something one does while hiding one's identity. People who are so afraid should in fact not engage in politics of change. Such men and women are not suited for such honorable pursuits and should instead concentrate in going about their lives in submission to authority as they do now.
Therefore I urge any readers if they have at least the courage to read this blog; in fact in Singapore you would be surprised to know that many fear doing even that; to read it and spread the message to others if they so desire and upon condition that they have the courage to do it. The author would appreciate that.
However if you plan to write a comment to this blog, it will not be accepted for publication unless it carries with it, a true and complete name, a full address, an Email address and a contact telephone number where you can be reached. The author will verify your identity and your comment will be published with your correct name and address. If you are not agreeable to these terms, you will be wasting your time writing to this blog because it will not be published.
As you are aware, there are many blogs that will accept such anonymous and disguised postings. In fact many blogs do not even identify the author. Singapore Dissident is however is not such a blog.
We had in the past accepted anonymous postings but as we are evolving and re-thinking what we do all the time, the time has now come to put a stop to this sort of shameful behaviour. It is both cowardly and pathetic. Therefore my advice to the Singaporean population is this. If you are so afraid, then accept Lee Kuan Yew's rule. Don't waste everyone's time writing criticism while hiding out of fear at the same time.
