Infernal Ramblings
A Malaysian Perspective on Politics, Society and Economics

Policies

Infernal Ramblings and John Lee have provided the following documents to explain all the various legal chicanery and usual protection clauses you normally expect to find:

Naturally, you may be curious what infractions will be punished and the degree of punishment meted for them. Well, this whole thing boils down to one axiom: don't be an idiot. Use your common sense and you won't get in trouble; don't post about things that are illegal for a reason (or at least don't post about how to obtain them; no links to where you can download illegal MP3s; no links to where you can buy illegal drugs online). Although technically the constitution of Malaysia forbids inter alia the discussion of Malay special rights and the questioning of Islam, this site is hosted overseas and anyway in Malaysia everybody flouts law and order, so what the heck.

However, extreme flaming and inflammatory comments/flamebaiting/trolling will not be tolerated. This particularly applies to the issues of race and religion. It's all right to complain about how the Malaysian government spends Indian taxes on building mosques. It's not all right to type in all caps, "SERVES YOU @$%^@ KORAN WORSHIPPERS RIGHT I HOPE YOU ALL BURN IN HELL WITH OSAMA".

As said earlier, just use your brain and everything will work out fine. Although I (John Lee) believe in free speech, this is a private website, and as the user agreement states, I can evict you from my premises for nothing more than pure idiocy. This discretionary power is not likely to be used, and has yet to be used as of April 2007.

The use of force alone is but temporary. It may subdue for a moment; but it does not remove the necessity of subduing again: and a nation is not governed, which is perpetually to be conquered.
