Someone from the airline called asking me to remove an article I posted in my blog. It was about a female crew who was charged for theft during her stay overseas. Subsequently, through the union's intervention she was left almost unscathed and resumed her flying duties. I was told she wanted to move on and so it wasn't good of me to blog about the incidence.
I had many asking to remove this post and that post. One even asked to delete a post that did not concern him. It was about his friend's friend. It was about theft too.
There were others who took selfie in nude and pictures of themselves while engaging in sexual activities. Then somehow somebody got hold of the photos and they went viral in the airlines. I posted them once I got the photos. Again, I was told to delete them.
Even management had in the past asked me to remove posts I made about them. I complied and delete some but not all.
I am a blogger and I make money from blogging. If I were to accede to the requests to delete my stories then how am I gonna to make money?
Can one asked the reporters to remove stories about them in the newspapers? You can't right? So a blogger is some kind of a reporter.
My advice is if you do not wanna feature in my blog then do not do stupid things like those I've mentioned.
BT: Above is a repost and below more asking me to delete my stories:
- One crew passed away and I merely said so and so passed away peacefully and RIP...wah I was asked by a third party to delete it as the family needs "privacy at this juncture"
- Another one, a former kleptomaniac died a horrible death. I posted a short story about this ex crew and how he/she died. Again, a third party asked me to remove the post as "it is not nice to say things about people after they've died".
- Again another ex crew passed away and I related a story of what we (yes me and him) did when we were at outstation many years ago. Nothing bad though but it was just some kind of mischief we got into which I think my readers would like to know. Wa lau his son demanded that I delete the post and said "we are grieving the loss of our father and you.......".
