    Hi would like to remind our members to be aware of potential defamation issues.
    Some of you might remember the VideoPro lawsuit against several members of the public who had posted derogatory remarks about the said company. We do not wish to see this happening in our forums and urge all members to post responsibly.

    Quoting the Penal Code S499 on defamation:

    499. Whoever, by words either spoken or intended to be read, or by signs, or by visible representations, makes or publishes any imputation concerning any person, intending to harm, or knowing or having reason to believe that such imputation will harm, the reputation of such person, is said, except in the cases hereinafter excepted, to defame that person.

    Also S501:

    Printing or engraving matter known to be defamatory.
    501. Whoever prints or engraves any matter, knowing or having good reason to believe that such matter is defamatory of any person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years, or with fine, or with both.

    Conversely, discussions that intelligently point out the flaws/benefits of certain products or services are always welcome in our forums.
