The admin “banned him twice, arbitrarily and without good and valid reasons”.
Surely our police must be too free, or we have escalated #FirstWorldProblems to a new degree…
Of course Hardware Zone is a private forum and its administrators have the right to do just about anything they want to.
Oh but wait, if YMCA can be a PAP propaganda machine then… *gasp*
Dear Esteemed Singapore Police Force,
I would like to lodge an official complaint against Hardwarezone.com.sg forum administrator “hwzadmin” forbanning me twice, arbitrarily, and without good and valid reasons.
Definition of arbitrary:
having unlimited power; uncontrolled or unrestricted by law; despotic; tyrannical
Initially, I used the account “sgvideoman” to participate in Hardwarezone forums. I believe hwzadmin banned me because I made *regular* postings that I am being persecuted, targeted, and blacklisted by the Government of Singapore. His flawed logic is that anyone, and I say anyone, who claims to be persecuted, targeted, and blacklisted by the Singapore Government must be insane and crazy. He told me to seek help from psychiatrists. In his opinion,it is simply impossible for the magnanimous Singapore Government to persecute, target and blacklist anyone. When I created the forum topic “[GPGT] I helped my friend assemble his brand new computer” (at http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/eat-d … emble-his-brand-new-computer-4749643.html), he found an *excuse* to ban me. In his ban message, he told me I had posted too many photos of the *same view* of the internal of my friend’s computer casing. Pray tell me, is there any legislation or law prohibiting anyone from publishing many photos of the same view of the internal of a computer casing online?
After my account “sgvideoman” was banned, I used the account [name] to participate in Hardwarezone forums. *Only yesterday* did I start to create posts that I am being persecuted, targeted, and blacklisted by the Singapore Government using the secondary account. Please refer to the forum topic “Yay! I have just finished setting up my web hosting service using cPanel!!!” at http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/eat-drink-man-woman-16/yay-i-have-just-finished-setting-up-my-web-hosting-service-using-cpanel-4814767.html
There is no freedom of speech in Hardwarezone Singapore forums. Anyone who criticises the government would be discredited with insanity. The Constitution of the Republic of Singapore guarantees its citizens with freedom of speech.
Part IV, clause 14 of the Constitution states that:
“Freedom of speech, assembly and association 14. (1) Subject to clauses (2) and (3) (a) every citizen of Singapore has the right to freedom of speech and expression; (b) all citizens of Singapore have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms; and (c) all citizens of Singapore have the right to form associations. (2) Parliament may by law impose (a) on the rights conferred by clause (1)(a), such restrictions as it considers necessary or expedient in the interest ofthe security of Singapore or any part thereof, friendly relations with other countries, public order or morality andrestrictions designed to protect the privileges of Parliament or to provide against contempt of court, defamation orincitement to any offence; (b) on the right conferred by clause (1)(b), such restrictions as it considers necessary or expedient in the interest ofthe security of Singapore or any part thereof or public order; and (c) on the right conferred by clause (1)(c), such restrictions as it considers necessary or expedient in the interest ofthe security of Singapore or any part thereof, public order or morality. (3) Restrictions on the right to form associations conferred by clause (1) (c) may also be imposed by any lawrelating to labour or education.”
So what is a constitution? According to wikipedia:
“A constitution is a set of fundamental principles or established precedents according to which a state or otherorganization is governed. Constitutions concern different levels of organizations, from sovereign states tocompanies and unincorporated associations. Within states, a constitution defines the principles upon which the stateis based, the procedure in which laws are made and by whom. Some constitutions, especially codified constitutions,also act as limiters of state power, by establishing lines which a state’s rulers cannot cross, such as fundamentalrights.”
In short, the constitution is the *Supreme Law* of a country. The legislature, that is, Parliament or Congress,*cannot* make laws which are not in accordance with the Constitution. When one of these laws directly violates theConstitution it is unconstitutional and will be struck down by the Constitutional Court.
The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights also guarantees freedom of speech. Excerpt from theUnited Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
“Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged theconscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and beliefand freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people”
Therefore, I would like to request the Singapore Police Force to contact the top management of HardwarezoneSingapore Forums to unban me. I would like to exercise and assert my right to freedom of speech.
Thank you very much.

Well, at least this guy must have passed his Public Law module… and we like how Wikipedia has taught him about constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
