Nolite te bastardes carborundorum

There were an inordinate amount of clicks to this website for “mark yeow revology” last month.

Being curious, I Googled the phrase and discovered a certain Mark Yeow has been ordered to pay SGD60,000 in defamation damages to media personality Vaune Phan.

You can read more about Vaune’s ordeal here.

This is the same Mark Yeow of Scooter Narcotics with whom I had a protracted interaction, between 2013 and 2014.

In this, there is some irony.

After I posted my review, Yeow issued, through a lawyer, a cease and desist letter to take down the review, alleging it was defamatory.

I had a cordial discussion about the review with the lawyer, in which I established the review was a fair comment in light of the events that transpired.

Vaune, well done on staying the course so that justice could be served. “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum”!
