Malaysian Law (edited - last part)
Under Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, I think paying 1k in fine for everyday could be a small amount for someone(that's if you have the money to dump into the dustbin). I got this from a lawyer friend. I also found out that US laws(which most blog sites are from) are tough on all these too and under their law, they are complied to give a copy of the original post(if deleted or modified in any way) I leave you to your thought. Good night
Defamation Act 1957
“Section 499. Defamation

Section 500. Punishment for defamation
Whoever defames another shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.”
Section 211 and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 provides for the prohibition of offensive content and improper use of network facilities and network services.
Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (Act 588)

*edited part (additional stuffs)*
I just found out something new. Blogs are considered as written proofs too and when things are put on blogs, even when they are not yours (eg posting conversations), you are still liable if those things in the post is defamatory (you have to prove it's right in court and failure to do so would make you guilty). This is because the person posted it and the last I checked posting something about people's sexual preference which is untrue is also considered defamatory. Ever wondered why people post things which are not theirs and worse still is the person they get the information from are not those directly involved and doesn't know much about what actually happened?
It would also be fun to get a friend's(Ezra Wong) mum(Mrs. Wong), who is the senior assistant of the said school(PESS) to testify in court that what is being said are lies. Things are indeed getting interesting. Some would never know what happened at the office and give their own version of things. Anyway I wish your friend and the one who loves to get "good" stories about me good luck. A police report was made (that I do not deny and it's not one but two actually but against who and what happened in the process of investigation?). Why is it I am still here and not convicted if I did indeed make threats? For goodness sake, get your facts clear before you try to throw your own poo at others.
"Weird Bulletins"? Maybe they are weird because as far as I can remember, I don't think I posted much bulletins except a few which I am 100% sure had nothing to do with anyone. Actually the police reports coincides with both my exam dates. Wanna put a bet on who is cooking up stories now? Posters? What a laugh. What posters can I post? Luckily there are people who did investigate to the end and not like some who just start the mud slinging thinking she know it all. You know there is this Chinese proverb which says "Jou meh dou hou, lau fan yat di yue bei bei ji gei"(in whatever you do, always leave some means of escape for your own). It means that in life you need not always go all out as at time when you lose it, you would lose it all. I hope you would really see things clearly.
Right now I don't have the time to deal with you. You can continue to dig your own grave hole there and when I have the time and I feel like it, I would make sure you get back what you deserve. I don't make empty promises and when I say this out, I mean it. It would be fun to see lawyers grilling your friend as she isn't even sure of things when she said them out. My advice? When you want to dig up poo, make sure you are ready to get yourself covered in them too because that is what you are going to get if you fail. Happy now? I am just waiting for you to cook up more stories about me so when you fall, you would surely fall hard.
Thanks Dr Liew for the information. I guess it would come in handy if I decide to leave the case to you.
