The cyber world progresses. We must keep pace with it. We can use it for good or evil.
Most Internet users, netizens, are responsible. Only a small group misuses it. They include hackers, liars and instigators. The fight between good and evil does not end.
Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Shabery says the review of the Internet laws will be holistic and not politically-driven. We welcome the holistic approach. We wish he enforces the laws to protect the majority. We hope he will not abuse them.

Millions of motorists use Malaysian roads. Only a small number of them are criminals. About 50% of nearly 7000 deaths a year from road accidents are motorists. There are not many motorcycle lanes.
A city is supposed to have safe areas. This may mean they are crime-free. The Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid suggests that motorists are banned from entering safe areas. According to him, 90% of road crimes are committed by criminals on motorcycles.
Tan Sri Khalid must consider the matter carefully. He has to review various factors such as the total impact of the ban, the meaning of safe areas, the number of policemen required, parking facilities, the availability of affordable public transport and the efficiency of city hall. Just because of a few criminals, the majority of innocent motorists are also punished.
