The controversial post on Diner en Blanc event

This is the controversial post that resulted in several Singaporeans bloggers uninvited by the organisers of Diner en Blanc event. Food blogger, Daniel Ang, was told to remove his blog post completely because the list of hawker food recommended for the picnic event were considered too not up to standard and too cheap.

Daniel refusal to remove or edit has its consequences. The event organisers' reasons for uninviting the former and other food bloggers was due to shortage of seats. Do you buy this reason? Daniel Ang has posted his stand here.

And Tan's indirect way of crafting how to describe a behavior without directing it at any specific person. Plus how he handle a troll - delete and block.
