—评《网络公民》致函读者有关网站收入的说明(中/英文版)

老话说,非洲和尚黑夜打乌鸦,已经是惊人的绝活了。

现在三木根在庄严的国会殿堂的讲话比起非洲黑夜猎人黑夜开炮打苍蝇更是前无古人、后无来者!

他为了让人民相信《网络公民》(TOC)的生存是与国外资金有关的,不惜一切颜面,睁大眼球在国会庄严的殿堂里扯鸡巴蛋!

他把一家在2015年10月已经和《网络公民》脱离商业关系的公司:The Opinion Collaborative Limited,用引文缩写“TOC”来说明《网络公民》(TOC)与它们之间的商业关系,进而提出了要《网络公民》退还所谓“5000”大洋的广告收入!?
您们说这不是在扯鸡巴蛋吗?

不!这不是简单的扯鸡巴蛋!

这是:黑夜猎人黑夜开炮打苍蝇!——让全非洲的黑人啥都看不懂!

以下是《网络公民》(TOC)三木根在国会的讲话和部分人在此事炒作所做的回应。

为了我们祖国和人民拥有一个议论自由的平台,请大家踊跃捐助《公民在线》。

关于我们的广告收入及相关的问题

For curious readers of TOC on its advertising revenue and other matters

 

在过去的一个星期,主流媒体报道关于社交媒体多少不存在的收入。The Real Singapore (TRS) 从网址设立直到它被强行关闭的过去一年半(即18个月)所赚取奖金50万澳元的广告收入。

律政部长在国会里的讲话和一些个别人士说,《网络公民》应该赚取了在广告收入能赚取一笔客观的收入。他们的讲话引起了公众的关注。为此我们有必要向读者及维护本网站的声誉说明实际的情况。

鉴于透明度,特别是我们获得公众人士的广泛捐款的。我们在此公开讲本网站的资金收入与开支细列。

以下是我们与TRS两家网站之间在同一时期直至2016年2年为止的资金收入的比较表格。

TOC与TRS资金收入比较表

《网络公民》在经营网站期间:

捐款与商品与服务销售收入 : $72,705.84

网站读者订阅收入:$7,337.78(目前已经停止)

支出:

TOC在同一个经营期间:

薪金:$62,610.00(编辑薪金:1600元/月;部分时间撰稿者:1200元/月;实习生:500-600元/月;抽佣写作者以象征式的支付。)

网站办事处租金:12,350.61元(《公民在线》必须提升网站办事处服务,因为它无法以自己的收入承担为此网站办事处的开支。)

捐款者与支持的答问:

1.《网络公民》已经在2015年10月从它之前的控股公司The Opinion Collaborative Limited脱离关系。在双方脱离关系之后,《网络公民》再也没有获得任何之前专家告诉所赚取的资金收入。因此,《网络公民》的生存仅仅就依靠自己的销售广告费来维持。

《网络公民》目前是由The Online Citizen Pte Limited经营,这家公司是在2015年12月注册成立的。

2.由于《网络公民》不是在资讯发展局注册成立的。目前它是在总理公署办公室管辖下的一家政治团体。《网络公民》已经致函给总理公署办公室有关获准一个人组合的政治团体。总理公署办公室也已经恢复它收到有关的申请了。它表示正在处理此申请。

他们的职责是《网络公民》必须进行调查和确认捐款者是新加坡人和他/她的名字。无论如何,任何捐款超过5千元新币仍然必须进行呈报。

无论如何,我们在此提醒自己和大家:媒体发展局可能会随时会要求《网络公民》注册成为一家它们管辖下的资讯公司。因此,捐款者必须拥有思想上的准备,他们捐款时,自己的名字将会呈报给资讯发展局。这样《网络公民》才可以接受他们的捐款。否则,有关捐款将会退还给乐捐者。

我们的银行户头帐号:

“The Online Citizen Pte Ltd”, Maybank Current Account, 04011108619

从2016年开始,我们将会发表年度财政收入报告。《网络公民》会把常年收入与支出详列在这份常年财务报表里以示我们的负责任态度。任何捐款者捐助的款额每月超过100元者将会收到我们寄出的财务报表的明细表。

Over the past week, media has reported on how much the defunct social media website, The Real Singapore (TRS) had earned over the course of one and a half year before it was forced to close down, clocking nearly close to half a million Australian dollars in advertising revenue.

In light of the public scrutiny due to the mention by Law Minister in the parliament, there have been also individuals who say that The Online Citizen (TOC) should be earning a fair bit of advertising money, given its readership and prominence.

For sake of transparency, especially since TOC has so far being largely funded by donations from supportive members of the public, we are disclosing the amount of money earned and spent by TOC.

Below in the table, we compare the amount of advertising revenue with what is said to have been earned by TRS over the same course of time till February 2016.

Other income of TOC during this period

Donations and sale of merchandise/services – $72,705.84

Expenses

For expenses that TOC incurred over the same period of time:

Wages – $62,610.00
(Editors were paid $1,600 monthly, part-time writers at $1,200, interns at around 500-600, commissioned articles paid at token sum)

Hosting Fee – $12,350.61
(TOC had to upgrade its hosting service because a shared server cannot handle the amount of request that the website receives.)

FAQ from donors/supporters

TOC was split from its former holding entity, The Opinion Collaborative Limited in October 2015. After the split, TOC did not hold on to any excess money from money earned from before, therefore, it is simply barely surviving on advertising money.

TOC is currently managed by The Online Citizen Pte Limited, registered in Dec 2015.

As TOC is not yet to be registered under the MDA regulation, TOC is currently only governed by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) as a political association. TOC has written to PMO about the gazetting of TOC’s one man team as a political association and has received its acknowledgment, saying that they are looking into the matter. What it means to donors is that TOC has to exercise its due diligence to verify that the donor is a Singaporean to accept the donation without his/her name, however, any amount above $5000 still has to be submitted.

However, TOC would like to warn that the Media Development Agency might come after TOC at any moment to ask the company to register as a media outlet and to be subjected under the regulation. Therefore, donors are advised to have the mental preparation that the name has to be submitted in order for TOC to hold on to the money, else it has to be returned.
