Thank you Mel, for contacting the members who have been sending you information. As I stated in my PM, I have gotten the verification of permission from one member. Also, as stated, all posted information should be of an informative nature and not one of you being used to push another's political agenda. I do not feel this is the case anyway. Admin. will be notified of the permission granted to you.

Quoting Isadora

will be notified of the permission granted to you.

Can I now post all future messages, from the Burmese member who gave me permission and informed Isadora of the permission, or do I need to get permission from moderators for each one? Just asking to double check that I am breaking no rules.:)

Why doesn't this Burmese member start his/her own posts?

Whatever a Bumese person says, may have reprecussions for their family inside Burma.
If they do not post the message themselves, they can pass the hot potato via a safe medium(through people who live in safe countries).
I am allowing them stand behind my democratic rights.

Yes, you can post the messages as you receive them, as long as they are still of an informative nature, without asking for permission for each individual one. As with every post (on TP) they will be read and edited if needed. So far, there has been no need for any editing and I'm sure it will remain so. I have also looked at the appeal (petition) site and the link can be posted as long as members are not pushed to visit the site nor to sign the appeal. I do feel this is an amiable way of handling the situation and hope you will agree.

Also, I have not heard from the second person involved as of yet. Until we have corresponded, I can not allow their comments to be posted. If you prefer, contact me with their information and I will send a PM requesting verification of permission.

Thank u Isadora.:)
If I break any rules, it is through misunderstanding, so please tell me immediately, so I dont repeat it.
Anyway, must go now and do some childcare. More later.

At the moment only those Burmese citizens living outside Burma have an internet connection to the rest of the world.
When the Burmese government thinks everything is under control they will hopefully reinstate the internet connection in Burma.
Be aware that blogs and messages are coming accross the internet from the Burmese people. There will be more, when the internet is switched on in Burma again.
When a blog or message comes your way, protect the anonominity of the sender, while passing the message to as many people as possible.

IMPORTANT:
DO NOT POST ANONOMOUS BLOGS AND MESSAGES ON TP, WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM THE ADMINISTRATORS AND ISADORA.

Hey Mel,

Did you say that you got those messages from different people? They seem to have a remarkably similar mode of writing don't they. Did you notice how good their English is, but they both seem to make the exact same spelling mistakes. They just look really similar - are you sure you are getting them from Burma and it's not someone winding you up?

Good post generally though.
