I received an anonymous comment which I copy herewith:

This is my response after deliberating on the above comment:
Hi 'Anonymous friend'. Thank you for your comment. That is rather kind of you. I had some household chores and while doing them I have been thinking about your comment. I think I should answer now rather than wait for next week as I am going on leave from my blog for the whole week.
Yes, I am an individual against the PLC and JKRS (its top guns) - I agree. But I can't see how I can be against the entire state and the CM.
The state is made up of you, me, the cm, JKRS , other Sabahans etc (PLC excluded as it is not Sabah based). My complaint is not against the state but against the PLC and the people entrusted with managing the affairs of JKRS. The pertinent question is whether my complaint is justified. If not I stand corrected and would be grateful to be shown the errors of my way. If justified then it's a question of whether it should be raised.
I honestly think I am helping the state. The individuals make up the state and if we bring up things we know which can minimise tariffs and taxes for our children and grandchildren then we should do something about it. Let us not be selfish and think only of ourselves. Think about the future of our state,think about the future of our children and grandchildren. Have some sense of patriotism.
I don't believe the CM knows what a shitty job this PLC has done. If he knows, do you honestly think he will let the PLC go Scot free? This is his state just as much as it is yours and mine. His children and grandchildren will also grow up here.
I know you have good intentions but why do you say I am against the State and the CM? My friend, I have known the CM for more than 30 years now and he knows me too. I knew him before he became CM. I also know most of his siblings. So, please leave him out of this.
I am against the PLC. They have received RM183 Million of Tax payer’s money and done a shitty (pun not intended) job. There will be huge repair works (Note I have used 'will' and not 'may') and I am trying to get the authorities to get the PLC to repair it now before the Defect Liability Period is over.
I am also against JKRS, ‘our servant’, who has not done its job. I am sure there will be engineers in JKRS who know the problems but have to walk with their heads down because of their bosses. Do these hard working engineers deserve to be looked down upon?
You seem to suggest silence as mine will be a voice in the wilderness or out of fear of reprisal. If we all take everything lying down we will forever be trampled upon. If you and many others support me our voices cannot be easily silenced and there will be too many bodies to trample on. Examine your logic and search your conscience. Perhaps you can show me how I am wrong.
Right now, I am an INDIVIDUAL. I have only passed this blog onto 5 friends who are close to me. I want to get their feedback, which I have been receiving via e-mails. Soon, once I put this in my FB, I won’t be an individual. I have some NGO and good friends who will take over. Darell Leiking may take me out to dinner when I bring this up with him.
When patriotic Sabahans get a hold of this blog this won’t be a voice of an INDIVIDUAL any more.
Looking forward to your comment.
