Singapore School issues Blogging guidelines for students

Zhi Yang's school, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, sent him some "very important info" to protect him and many others like him!

...While you Blog, please stay on the right side of the Law and stay sensitive to other people around you. Do not blog on things that promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Singapore (Section 4 of the Sedition Act).

Students should use the blog appropriately and not to misuse it to arouse social disorder or 'flame' a person online. In a multi-racial society like in Singapore, every citizen or resident should respect other races and religions. As all Bloggers are personally responsible for what they blog, please be careful.

I'd say this is sensible on the part of Ngee Ann. With so many controversies raging up recently because of Blogging, it is better to have the students already cautioned. No denying the fact that majority of Bloggers are responsible netizens, but still why have someone face any sort of consequences just because of sheer ignorance.

I found your comments to be very interesting. We can never keep up with all that is going on. For example who would have ever thought Apple and Intel would be working together. On another side note, I’m one of the beta testers for a new browser. It can be found here; The company is looking for others to test it out as well so download it and give them some feedback.

Sure! I never had so much choice for a Browser. IE, Firefox, even Opera. And now, this beta.

All this spam even when word-verification is enabled! Ridiculous.
