WOMEN CAN NOW SURF PETALBYTES (WOMEN’S) FORUM DISCREETLY AT WORK

The new women’s forum PetalBytes was made famous recently due to an apparent invasion by trolls, triggered by some disparaging comments a female user on the forum made about Singaporean men. It seems that PB weathered the storm… and fought back.

Having read about this “saga” on All Singapore Stuff, I began to follow the progress of the forum (in part also due to some of the ridiculously funny comments made by men pretending to be female users – for example, “you have to cook the egg white before using it as a mask”). And boy was I surprised.

A couple of days ago, I spotted a post by one of the admins saying they introduced a “safe mode”. I was thinking in my head, “what on earth is that?”. Being curious I tried it. The moment I clicked on the “safe mode” link, I wondered to myself, “why did my word processor pop up suddenly?”. Then the realisation hit me and I smiled to myself at the ingenuity. THE ENTIRE WEBSITE WAS NOW MASKED IN A WORD DOCUMENT-LOOKING FRAME! Even the colours were dumbed down to make the forum layout look like contents of ordinary word documents.

It is not uncommon for forums to experience a lull period during the day, but I think the owners of PetalBytes really did the unthinkable. They actually made a function for their users to surf the forum discreetly during work! At least now I don’t have to be paiseh of being caught lurking on a forum with hot pink colours anymore!
