Been reading about the arguments in Tomorrow.sg regarding how the editor reacted after idler pass away. I didn’t managed to read all the comments. They are quite unreadable. Too much flaming, to much anger. It is very saddening to read those comments. It is worst than reading blogs by Nguyen supporters bashing Singapore’s human rights. Its like a civil war where Singaporeans fight Singaporeans. And they are not fighting for someone’s life, they are fighting for……. eerr…. What exactly are you guys fighting for anyway? I got no idea. Its all senseless.
What is wrong with these people? Is there really a need for those flame war? We all have different point of views and ideas. But is there a need to flame someone just because their point of views is different from yours?
Sometimes, I wonder if these people are really fighting this flamewar because of idler or because they simply wanted to start a flamewar. Try to imagine how would she feel if she know all these flaming because of her. If you guys really care for her, then please stop all these flamewar.
I don’t want to debate who is right or who is wrong here. Its a grey area. A grey area that can be avoided if we state in our blog what we want to do if we die. If idler stated what she allows and disallow people to do after she pass away, perhaps all these flamewar will not occur.
So let me start the ball rolling by writing a “open will” here. Not those kind of will which says my money go to who and my gadgets go to who. But the kind of things that I don’t mind people doing for me after I die. Perhaps everyone should write a “open will” in their blog to avoid another flamewar.
Things I don’t mind people doing after I die….
I don’t mind people posting pictures of me online. BUT please choose a nice picture of me. Don’t post those picture of me digging my nose, sticking out my tongue or scratching my backside. Please try to look for picture of me in poor lighting. I look good in poor lighting. (Meaning I don’t look good lah)
I don’t mind people revealing my name to everyone. But make sure you spell my name correctly. My name have double ‘r’ in it. And my name ends with ‘l’ not ‘y’.
I don’t mind people informing my family members about my blog. In fact, I WISH you guys will inform them about my blog. At least they still have some memories of me.
I don’t mind people compiling my blog into a book and give it to my family and friends. But can you also burn a copy for me?
Well, just do whatever thing you want. I’m already dead already. As if I care so much. If I mind anything that you in your blog post after my death, I’ll visit you personally at night and ask you to remove it.
Wait a minute… Who the hell do I think I am. As if I’m a popular blogger in the blogsphere that someone would compile my blog into a book….
oh well… just in case lah…..
