Can anyone spot what is wrong?



Just received an email from Putfile requesting for donations for their website. Well, I’m usually fine with such requests as I know popular free websites are usually starved for bandwidth and need quite a fair bit of cash to keep up their hardware and provide even more bandwidth.

What I’m not fine about, is requesting donations from people from a country which you BANNED entirely. How primitive is that, banning people from using your website, when even the idea of your website isn’t exclusive to yourself only? I hope that they considered that not everyone in Singapore shares the same line of thinking as the government, and even if we did or did not, its seriously not in our hands. Its the law damnit! Don’t you people have laws over there as well?!

Then again, the news of them banning us isn’t new. The point rather, is that why bother asking us for donations? Its kind of shameless and an insult to our intelligence. Or is it that the administration couldn’t really be bothered about who they did or did not ban, and just send out a general email to EVERYONE in hopes that someone might donate? I reckon its the latter. Lazy arseholes….

    I agree it is quite ridiculous.

    I’m sure there are alternatives? are some of them.

    Yeah, I know of the alternatives, but I find their attempt to still get all their members to donate regardless of nationality kind of dumb as they issue a blanket ban on everyone with a Singapore IP address.
