Ooopps! Just Too much!!

Wah... pardon me.. never blog for a while... frequency of posting getting a bit erratic.
Prelims just finished and 'O' levels starting in 3 weeks time. Been bombarded by all those past-year-papers.

Getting little or no inspiration nowadays. *sighz*

Situation in Singapore still have not stabilized yet. I am talking about the dengue cases. It is still on the rise. Seriously, by now, you would think many would raise their guard and be more vigilant about water collecting in their empty flower pots etc. But NOoo... Many still take for granted. More responsibility is needed.

Talking about responsiblity, bloggers have, in recent weeks been thrown into the limelight again and again. Last time it was Sarong Party Girl posting well... photos of herself.. causing some uneasiness within the blogosphere, then it was the defamation of A*Star. Later, in September, which is this month, 3 bloggers were charged for seditious comments. And then yesterday's newspaper talking about the disciplinary action taken against 5 tertiary students which were all females. One of them was flaming a teacher for telling a girl off because she was wearing short skirts.

Oh come on! enough already. Ain't all those actions taken against the "offenders" enough to put people on guard?? Many are still not taking care in what they write. Do you think you can easily evade responsiblity online? With the explosion of blogging as a powerful medium and a point of "rally" it is fast catching the eyes of people. Popular blogs are a prove-of-concept. Some are even efficent in raising funds then fund raising events!!
People are sitting up and taking note of this phenomenon. Governments too are doing so.

Safe? whats safe online?? With growing affluence and widespread use of computers, it is not hard to track down anyboday nowadays. All you need is a piece of software and internet connection. Voila! information is effortlessly gathered.
Hide behind an online nick/handle?? -- Useless.
What you say online can even become a basis for losing your job! Already a few people have been subjected to this.
Some people have even classified blogs as the "dark-side" of the internet.

Viruses? Trojans? Worms? Phishing? Spamming? Identity Theft? Cracking? Flaming? Macro-Viruses? Spoofing?
Oh my goodness... How much more stuff must we add to the list? This is just nuts...

*Sighz*
