Agree with you Phil.

Martyn must consider re-instating his blog. Such avenues are essential to fight for and exercise our democratic rights and freedom of expression.

In a tribal fight, people avoid the arrows, not the bow. The warriors run when they see the arrow coming.

We seek shelter from right where you are from an impending storm. If we run we might be caught out in the open.

Agree with you Keith.

I think Martyn should re-instate his blog, it is a valuable commentary on PNG affairs that is needed by the community.

There are subtle ways of making a point that most often have a much better impact than blatant and crude criticism. Humour in particular can have a devastating impact.

Crude comments laced with profanities are a turnoff for thinking people and they immediately devalue the commentator's view.

If a protest is being planned it can be set out in a way that doesn't incite possible criminal behaviour. Emphasising the peaceful nature and using terms like 'peaceful rally' will do the trick.

If you want to say something on a blog you just have to pause for a moment and think it through before shouting your mouth off.

Well said, Keith.
