Singaporeans urged to be mindful of hateful content, while letting themselves go once in a while when buying things.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who rely on the Internet as if it is as important as air, have been cautioned by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong about the need to regulate their online behaviour as it may have real world consequences.

PM Lee said Singaporeans need to be mindful of the things they put out on the Internet as it is a public space because access to comments, in particular the hateful kind, can hardly be restricted once it is out and can cause a lynch mob mentality in others.

One Singaporean, Hen Shen Qi, who uses the Internet as a medium to receive comments and occasionally spew bile and venom on others, said he empathises with the prime minister’s analysis of online behaviour: “Yes, the Internet in Singapore has made it easier for people to cause offense and take offence.”

“However, Singaporeans by and large use the Internet to buy stuff and spend a lot of money on merchandise.”

“Using the Internet to cause offense and to take offence is just a by-product of waiting for the browser to load with new items or in between transactions to clear.”

“For example, Zalora is offering up to 15 percent discount off merchandise in the month of May 2015.”

“So, as you can see, the Internet has also made it easier for people to mash up content to shamelessly promote commerce online.”

They prove they are more astute, smarter, sexier, funnier and richer than other local website readers.

New Nation readers who have been exposed to falsities all the time are only getting better at spotting the real McCoy when they see it.

This after they called out the latest exclusive Zalora shopping discounts featured on the New Nation website as nothing but the real deal.

Kee Sho Peng, a Singaporean who reads New Nation daily, said: “This Zalora shopping discount is real. I’ve read enough fake stuff in my life to tell real from fake.”

Others said they have no qualms that a fake news website is blending its inaccurate reporting with real advertisements.

Mai Dong Xi, a local, said: “It’s far worse if it is a real news site that is providing news only on the basis that they can make money from advertisements.” “Then if they cannot make money, that means no more news is it? Eh wait…”
