btw, this ‘penang wireless campaign group’ if they are against wireless penang, then why is their name ‘penang wireless campaign group’? shouldn’t the name be ‘penang anti-wireless campaign group’? oh i see all their posts were cut and paste articles taken here and there to support their stand on wireless posing a big health risk.

any supporter of wireless penang wanna start a group/blog and get hard-working sourcing for news/info/articles that support wireless does not pose danger/health risk? 🙂

i’ll join the 2nd group. 😉
