Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a sad thing to see this much fear among Singaporeans. I am referring to those who take an interest in Singapore politics or social conditions and seriously comment on it in the Internet. Very sensible researched learned views, but alas the author remains so afraid that he is unable to say who he is. And this applies to every single one who comments on political matters.
Take for instance the Singapore Democratic Party's website yoursdp.org. There you see BryantT, AhKow, Robox who is a prolific commenter, quantum, nobody and so on and so forth. In this blog almost all commenters sign off as "anonymous". And this is sad. Very sad.
It is sad because each one of these commenters provide a valuable input on the state of the case in Singapore. Very valuable indeed. And in normal reckoning, we all like to take credit for our hard work and contribution and look to it's appreciation by the reader. But it is impossible to take credit when you are forced to conceal your identity and that must be painful to each and every one of them who do so much for the betterment of Singapore.
This fear of identifying oneself has to be peculiar to Singapore. Nowhere else do I see people so afraid like this.
Take Robox and Mycroft for instance, Robox of SDP and Mycroft here. They have provided such excellent commentary from which not only myself but I am sure many others have benefited. Singapore too has benefited from their writings.
But who are they? And what a pity they have to hide.
