Singapore schools punishing students for naughty comments on blogs

School kiddes in Singapore aren’t yet getting the cane for dissing teachers , but they are getting suspensions for calling teachers “prudes” and “frustrated old spinsters” on their blogs.

Reuters reports that in August, five junior college students who posted derogatory remarks about their teachers and vice-principal on their blogs were suspended for three days and have been ordered to remove the comments from their blogs.

Hilariously, local lawyers say students could be sued for defamation for the comments on their blogs, even if a teacher was not named.
