Firewall


SHE was a new face representing the People's Action Party, but when Ms Denise Phua surfed the Internet during the recent General Election, the tone of the postings stunned her.

They were overwhelmingly slanted against the ruling party.

"I know that something has gone wrong when more than 85 per cent (of the traffic) writes negatively about the PAP," she said at a post-mortem of the GE organised last night by the National University of Singapore Society.

"This is something that the PAP would do well to take into account ... and to
manage this channel of communication," she added.



This pap lady finally discovered internet. progress. Her speech is so 60s, does she take internet users as sheeps waiting to be herd?

But I guess the only effective way to "manage" is to learn from PRC, build a nationwide great firewall, filter the keywords, block the sites, make it as a super local area network, and then we will be much closer to the bottem of the list instead of 140th only.

Come on, the internet was designed to be able to withstand nuclear attack.

If gov want to control it, the only way is to pull the plug from singtel and starhub. That is like using a tank to crack a nut.

Fuck. .not happy go ban internet and sue everyone to jail la!!
