>and so I can't tell their names.  You will not even think to provide 
>security.  When ABSDF and all news groups sending out information under

>you know what you are saying.  I feel cold in my backbone when asked to
>identify the source.   I am afraid of their security if I don't keep

>responsibility over what I sent.  I can prove and I have sufficient
>documents.  However, you have the right to say that those are wrong or
>right.  You didn't say anything that whether those were right or wrong.
>If you think you are sure those are wrong, you can post it on net and I

>whether your accusation is meanful or not.   I am just wondering that
>accusing sending blackmail is a new means to stop others' opinion?  Spy
>and then, blackmail!  You hid your position in the guise of a supporter

>              First, I have to tell you that, I know what effects could

>only ABSDF but also all).  However, when you keep quiet, those become

>people honestly.   When the people learnt about those weakness, all

>BSPP did and SLORC does.  Those are not good to copy though.
>               I sent out those informations with the following
>intention.   To compare and examine the past situation and present

>didn't criticize and I just pointed out the points and urged to mend

>I know and everyone knows that we have weakness but we never talked and
>discuss about and never find out how to mend them.  Never seek help 
>others too.  Moreover, we seem much reluctant to accept that we have
>weakness.  It is pretty late and we must talk and discuss about those
>weakness in order to find remendies.
>               Look! We have weakness and we need to identify those.  I
>alone can't identify them and I am sure there are so many things I

>           When pointing out some weakness, it is our task.  All
>people's task.  Do you know what Daw Lay Aung San Suu Kyi said?  "We
>shouldn't blame only on BSPP for what had happened in the country

>and if you really love ABSDF, you must point out it so that it can see

>and if you and ABSDF and the groups don't want those, you can just
>ignore it.   Accepting criticism is a practical way to see our real
