    • Speaker's Corner.

      The fact that we need a speaker's corner is fact enough something is amiss.

      The second fact that we need to moderate speeches show yet another defect.

      Defect at birth of nation is cause of pains and blames.

      This state of affairs is unhealthy.

      The least to do is sometimes to be natural and see what happen.

      Image all these problems, there will be only more problems.

      I believe we need more liberalization and openness.

      With liberalization and openness, people will stop shooting off their mouths. Try it. It will work.

      A Russian, an Ethiopian and a Singaporean were being surveyed by the World Bank. The question was "What is your opinion on how much money you spend on food?"

      The Ethiopian asked, "What is food?"

      The Russian asked, "What is money?"

      The Singaporean asked, "What is an opinion?"

      FireIce is my favourite!
      If we vote her in as mod, will anyone of us get to date her? Wink
      But even if we do and she gets tied up with moderating more than one forum, i think that possibility will be gone.
      Alternatively, she may be so overworked that you will see an ah Ma pic instead of a Chiobu one next time she comes on.

      Stress has been known to be an aging factor and killer.

    • Dare to say, dare to get flamed.
      Make mistakes, be prepared to be corrected.

      Persistent war-thugs will be avoided by all eventually.

      If any of us does not agree with what others say, does not mean that we have to argue and rebut though that is welcomed in the very nature of a forum. Singaporeans must learn to be tolerant of opposing views. Do we always have to win an argument?

      To have to police what people say in a forum is really going against the spirit of free speech. Surely this forum won't have to end up like the farce they created at Hong Lim Park right?

      Besides freedom of speech is enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore.

      To let a child grow, cut loose the apron strings. Stop mothering.

      The UK's Hyde Park which has had a Speaker's Corner for decades must be a reflection of the state of affairs in that country then. (hehehe!)

      No Speaker's Corner, people complain about lack of free expression.

      Got Speaker's Corner, no one wants to speak or even visit occasionally for a listen-in.

      Either way, people will find a reason to whine and complain. Hard to please! (hehe!)
