    You mean botak head, “was speechless and more than a little stunned.” He even got to take a few minutes to think about what to say. If like then better stay out of politics lah. What did he really expect lah?

    Welcome to reality.

    Good Afternoon,

    Oh dear this is really very disturbing. I wonder why people like darkness don’t condemn it outright? Doesn’t he find it upsetting? I must say, he is rather supine by all this isn’t he? I do really hope everything is fine with Prof Thio, it would really be sad if the pro-repeal movement was somehow tainted by this untoward incident.

    Very regrettable indeed.

    Hello teeth doctor,

    Was the whole thing foreseeable? Absolutely, however let’s put it all in the correct perspective. We are obviously dealing with a dummy with zero tactical skills. What kind idiot warns his victim? I mean by doing that he has more or less forfeited the element of surprise, so the enterprise is as dead as a rubber duck. What should have happened was when the first dummy sent out the e-mail, he should have been dealt with instead of let off with a slap on the wrist. That would have sent out a clear message. That’s how smart folks calculate, as the doctrine of zero tolerance implies when one window in building is broken within 36.5 hours, the rest of the windows will be broken as well, so it’s important to fix that one broken window at every cost! By responding decisively using lighting war strategy but as we can see no one bothered to do their sums and that is a great pity bc people are fickle and most suffer from dyslexia. So its fair to assume tomorrow everyone will forget the substantive issues of 377A and only remember this dumb letter and everything that follows after – what a pity, that’s the real tragedy of 377A.

    Talk as if this is really big shock – you have to be living in a cave in Nepal or something.
