How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain
Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Blogger.com imposes its will on use of new template

The notice to change to their new template which shows a simplified page was given some time ago, but ignored by yours truly. Well, the design of my blog page evolved over time, based on what was offered by Blogger, but I suppose it becomes too cumbersome with all kinds of widgets offered by others, and does not conform to continually changing new usage requirements of new gadgets like mobile phones, tablets and so on.

Just now, I was in the process of trying to delete Sitemeter because it had not been working, by going into Design, and lo and behold, my page appearance changed to Blogger's preferred format. There was a promise that a copy of the old design is kept and I can revert to it anytime, but the way the new design has been forced on me, I doubt so.

Well, it has been wonderful using Blogger since October 2005 for free. The sponsor has every right to do as it pleases, and in the world of IT it would be naive to expect things to remain the same for long.

Update: My apologies for what I have mentioned above, though my thoughts on things not going to remain the same for long, stay. Just now, I had yet to upgrade the template. Having done that, I still had the choice of choosing the same page presentation as before. Thank goodness (and Blogger) for that.
