23-year-old Burmese permanent resident offended by comment made by Singaporean and threatening retaliation
For your information, I have chosen to no longer reply to the idiotic comments on your website. This is not because of your advice or because I am giving up.
It is because my girl friend is worried about me if I take this further.
So in order to appease her, I have promised not comment on my article. However, do keep in mind that you have told me and everyone on the website that you will be moderating and those comments that are insulting will be removed.
Well I suggest you take a look at what this fellow called chillax is saying about me.
I assure you Gilbert, if you do not remove his comment, it will show to me and everyone that you do not keep to your word. And if the comment remains, it will FORCE me to retaliate and from all this email exchange with me you should know that I am one who can express himself very VERY well.
And my comments will reflect EXACTLY what I am feeling about some of these people. Of course once I reply and you remove my post, it will show to me your true standing.
And I will be FORCED once again to conclude that you are being racist, removing only my comment and not other people who are also insulting.
So Gilbert I suggest you let this chillax person know that I am NOT to be trifled with. Believe me when I say that I have ways and means to find out exactly who and where he is posting from.
I don’t have IT experts as friends for no reason. IP addresses are easily traced. And also, assuming I intend to go to authorities and report that this chillax guy is spreading anti-foreigner sentiments, it will not go very well for him.
Remember that just because many foreigners are not saying anything about this issue like me, ALL of them are feeling exactly what I am feeling.
All it takes is a spark to set the whole thing on fire. So we should be very careful what the foreigners are allowed to see when people speak ill of them.
The Burmese are a very proud race Gilbert and I am not an exception.
If we have made a mistake, we don’t mind people looking down on us.
But those who have achieved something and are insulted like this, we will not take it lying down.
If the comments are not removed, the chillax fellow will need to find the dirtiest little hole he can find, crawl into it and never come out because Burmese people everywhere will be looking for him.
What he said is a racial, and national insult to us. Do you want his comment getting out there to show what kind of people Singaporeans are?
I myself don’t generalise Gilbert, you know this. I know that there are only a few of these kind of people in Singapore.
But the media, my people and the rest of the world might not be so generous when it comes to judging the character of the entire nation based on just these few individuals.
I hope you will do the right thing by removing offensive posts, because if you don’t nip this problem in the bud, you can be damn sure the media will come down hard on this issue.
His comments will show the world exactly how xenophobic Singaporeans are…
Editor’s Note: It is unsure which comments made by chillax are found to be offensive by Simon. So far, all comments posted on the two related articles earlier are intact and none has been removed. We again ask for cool heads to prevail here and that all comments posted will have to be respectful of each other’s culture and belief.
