In the past, back in 2005 when I first joined there's some idiots on this forum who would like to bash racial and sensitive topics, keeping the mood super high and tense eventhough it's non-JPA season. HAHA ! Those people are iQing and Thirdshifter. Afterwards, iQing got banned from this forum forever, and things start to get really really boring.

Hope to see his clone here.

While iQing was definitely entertaining to watch, there were definitely lines that he had crossed and unfortunately we had to act on that. There are good entertainments out there that do not involve nasty personal attacks, religion assault and blatant defiance of forum rules.

You have an important observation, imagine you are in the news paper business, the easiest way to increase circulation is to stir up emotion, it can be sex, politics, race, fear, religion and any topic you can come up with. The company's bottom line and your promotion/rice bowl depends on it, what would you do?
This is the problem facing recom now!

A lots of news reporting have degenerated into increasing circulation using biased, sensational reporting, causing a lot of misunderstanding in society, all in the name of free speech! I suppose, may be we should give everyone free speech, but look carefully at freedom after speech!

*Cringe* Feeling a bit guilty here for being inactive ever since i got my scholarship. Lol. Im so sorry guys, just that i've been busy with college and all. Of course everyone's busy with their lives too, my feeble excuse cannot be justified.
I'll try to repent but no guarantees. 0=)
Recom has been very resourceful when i was hunting for scholarships. I admit, that has been the sole reason for me to come to this forum; i.e: when i need help with scholarship stuff. It'd be selfish for me to dump it when i don't need it anymore.
Perhaps to remind people to visit this forum, a notification system (something like Facebook) could be implemented to send emails for every single thing happening here to its users? I know emails are sent to notify about private messages but maybe emails could be sent out when the thread the person was viewing/replied is active again? Uhm i don't know if i make sense. Haha. Just a suggestion anyways.

Another year of quiet time after scholarship season. Hmm... I'm wondering when can we improve up to the level of TSR... their forum is active the whole year long, and almost everything under the sun can be discussed.

I check in almost every day, just to see if there's anything new. And since I'm one of the people who's constantly provoking discussions and sharing stuff, I should definitely be checking in.

I have been a panel speaker in international conference before, talking to other colleagues who were much more experience than I was at the time and asked him why he saids things as speaker which he knew the right answer was different. He told me, as a panel speaker we had a few different responsibilities, sharing information is one, the other is to stimulate lifely discussions, get the ideas flowing. Now and then we injest something controversial to get the discussion started.

Maybe we should cover more areas of discussion like lowyat.net...now they're quite active all along (we do have them [discussions] but rather inactive)...!

I see most newbies here come to ask about what to do after SPM/pre-u still...that's the niche of this forum I guess?

PS unrelated, I am of the opinion that our discussions need to be balanced. I see that most members of the forum are more liberal. Okay, I won't be shy and say that many members are very liberal in thinking about various issues today, but people who hold more conservative views are sometimes shunned by those who are more liberal (the mods do a good job in locking down over-sensitive threads though), that's why some shy away from discussions about other topics besides education, especially politics,race and religion...even I do that because I do have some more conservative views that I feel are "unwelcome" here at times.

Or is it an unwritten view that those who still have conservative views are in the minority here?
