Xiaxue exposes abusive netizens with their personal details
HAVE YOUR SAY: Was Xiaxue right to expose commenters from Facebook who flamed her with nasty comments, in her blog?
SINGAPORE: Blogger Xiaxue took to her blog on May 24 to lash back at commenters on sociopolitical website Temasek Review's Facebook page who left undesirable comments about People's Action Party (PAP) rally photos she took with friends Bong Qiu Qiu and Sophie Willocq, to the support of many netizens.
The blogpost contains screencaps of the comments posted on Temasek Review's Facebook page about a year ago. Commenters ranted on the girls' looks and social standing, with some calling Xiaxue a 'whore' and Qiu Qiu, a 'spoilt rich girl'. The pictures on Temasek Review's Facebook page were posted with a prompt to add captions and were obtained from the girls' respective blogs without their permission. Xiaxue's blogpost contains personal pictures and information about select commenters from the Facebook postings.
Xiaxue claims that such information of the commenters are "readily available online" and opined that her husband Mike likened her post to her pointing at a man if she sees him "walking around naked". She believes that her post is meant for the commenters to "take consequences for their actions" and affirms that "they picked the wrong person to mess with".
Amongst the commenters she exposed included Aaron Heng who commented on her looks. She retorted by posting a picture of him as well as information on his workplace, with a link to a page on his website containing his contact details. Another exposed commenter is Hong Xing, whose lewd comments prompted Xiaxue to post a picture of his family and claims he has "a slight obsession over prostitution and sex". Hong Xing has replied with a Facebook post on his wall persuading readers to report her blog as "abusive".

In the first place, she was not even the first person who talks about the politics, it was the guys who was commenting about her and her friends as prostitues,so who is the cyber bully first? if you claim that she should prepare to take critcism just because she is a blogger, what about the guys? they are not even a blogger so they should be able to take criticism and prepare to face consequence for their action.
she won't retaliate if no one has attacked her in the first place, read her blog for exact details, n look who is the cyber bully first.
As a professional blogger she should know that politics is a sensitive topic and she chose to blog about it then be prepared to face the consequences. Yes, defend yourself against those that made comments but she defended herself the wrong way. She should not get innocent family members and friends involved in her retaliation against the attacks.
Her actions basically shows that she does not think before she leaps. Both husband and wife are lacking in brain juice when it comes to tackling issues. She had just proven that she is"a bimbo" to all those that had thought of her as one.
