    Hi guys,

    I was trying to access a file posted by a forumer in a hobby-based forum I regularly visit for my Zoids hobby and it seems the hosting service - Putfile - has banned all access by SG folks to their files hosted on their systems and also denied uploading access to us as well.

    Read this:
    http://www.putfile.com/putfile-goodbye-to-singapore.php

    I find this to be absolutely absurd and a blatant attempt by the website owners to punish a whole country just because they're unhappy with what happened to Nguyen.

    Perhaps we SG folks should ban people from Putfile's hosting country. That should tell them that we too, can play this game.

    we're not as stoopid as they are
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Well, other non-sg users have blasted them for the decision. If they want to do that, why don't they do it across the board... ban all countries with death sentences. Why don't they go figure out how to ban drug-traffickers from using their services, or pedophiles, rapists, murderers...

    Anyway, tit-for-tat does not help. Let them be... there are many other alternatives out there.

    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
