    Advertising Standards Authority of S’pore has too much free time: Cherian George
    June 10, 2017
    As it chose to look into frivolous complaint against Pink Dot mall ad.

    Belmont Lay

    In a world where 24 hours is no longer enough with so much stuff to do and battles to pick, the Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore has mastered the art of time-wasting and poor resource allocation.

    Basically, the ASAS going after the Pink Dot ad in Cathay Cineleisure after receiving public feedback shows that the organisation is being way too selective in addressing complaints.

    The above post is by highly learned media academic Cherian George, who has stuck one into ASAS. This is because, out of all the complaints the organisation could have acted upon, it picked the most frivolous one.

    What about the advent of ad masking in the mainstream and online media in Singapore? What about the violence in ads displayed in public spaces?

    If ain’t nobody got time for that, then where did the ASAS even find time to respond to the complaint about Cineleisure’s Pink Dot ad?

    So, what can consumers do, moving forward?

    This is Cherian’s recommendation to put the ASAS to good use:

    Now that we know ASAS exists and has the time, we consumers can nudge it in the right direction by familiarising ourselves with its code (https://asas.org.sg/code) and taking full advantage of its complaints procedure. If the good people of ASAS start taking a proper look at problematic advertising in Singapore, I think they would be the first to admit that they’d have no bandwidth to entertain the kind of complaint we’ve just witnessed.

    The message, when taken to its logical conclusion, is simple: If the ASAS is inclined to act on behalf of consumers with gripes, it better go all the way with its policing whenever it receives complaints, regardless.

    Otherwise, it will reveal itself as just another toothless organisation that operates according to a mentality of convenience rather than conviction and purpose.

    Or worse, it is perceived as acting on the conviction of one particular group using the influence of a public authority to police the use of public spaces.
    Kudos to Cathay

    People are losing their jobs, the country is losing its previously hard earned positions in port, shipping, aviation, high end manufacturing and lost a fortune in investments in banks, the last thing we need to worry about is Singapore's version of Mardi Gras and 2 consenting adults doing what they want.

    Totally can understand if the Kwan Teow is not fried well, the Roti Prata got no gravy, and the nasi lemak got too little chilli but nobody gives a fuck about one's sexual inclination. It's like mini skirts in the 60s, get over it.
    Exactly. Cathay Cineleisure didnt break any law and does not need to take down the advert. I like the way Cathay Cineleisure showed its middle finger to ASAS. The ball is in pap's and ASAS' court

    And my point is that PAP represents the will of the people in this case. So maybe you should ask is Singapore losing its grip on social conservatism against homosexuality?

    People can have different views about issues you know. It's not all about you.

    If PAP is losing grip it means sinkies butt muscles are not strong enough,they must practise some flexing exercises.a loose sphinter can result in many unsatisfied sexual partners with small dicks and also frequent incontinence.
