Announcement: Change in Modus Operandi of Greysteppenwolf Blog

Dear readers,

Having received the following reply from SPH, I will change the mode of operation of this blog as follows:

1) There will no longer be full SPH articles on this blog. Periodic updates on the Singapore mental health scene will continue and will be done using mainly SPH articles, but only with the links provided. Commentary may be provided but is optional. As such, updates will probably be given in bulk on a more or less periodic schedule on this blog. Additionally, links to the articles may be reposted on my Facebook Page, which I think is allowed by SPH.

2) Previously posted SPH articles would remain in draft mode on this blog and will not be available to readers. If commentary is to be given, a link will be provided to the original article. You can email me to request for SPH published information and I will do a search on my database and give you the link, if any, or selected information.

3) Articles which are not of SPH origin will be put back up on this blog. This ironically means that more unforgiving and critical commentaries will make up the bulk of reposted articles on this blog.

And since Sebastian Chow from SPH is unable to nail me with any evidence of business dealings or commercial activities on my blog, the profiles of Dr Ang Yong Guan and Dr Yeo Seem Huat are back up, sans the SPH articles. The profile of Dr Alex Su is an SPH article, so I'll try to do an original writeup for him.

As for the "Recovery from mental illness in Singapore" series, most of them are SPH articles, so I might try to original writeup or fresh interviews. What do you readers think?

The final reply from SPH is as follows. No apology was given for insinuating that I monetised my blog to take advantage of SPH. Of course, financially I have no recourse to a lawyer, so the point is moot.

Lastly, feel free to give me feedback on the new modus operandi of this blog.
