Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!

hi chenchow,

Im a malay. 8A1s, 2A2s GCE O A1. Applied Engineering. Income >RM1500.

Btw, is it possible for you to filter some of the comments in Recom?

I find some of the comments rather insulting.

Recom is supposed to a Malaysian Student network but it is misused my certain people who clearly do not think twice before posting anything on it.

Thanks for your feedback.

Regarding the comments in ReCom, I would say that we adopt the concept that majority of members would be matured enough to post responsible posts.

So, if you find any part of the posts are insulting, do quote it and rebut it. Don't attack the person, but attend the post itself.

We can't just filter off stuff, or else, people would be commenting on the loss of freedom of information.

We are hoping to slowly inculcate the habit of responsible posting.

Thanks for your support of!
