"Malaysia mempunyai sejarah yang unik dalam isu kebebasan bersuara. Jika kita bandingkan kebebasan bersuara semenjak dari merdeka sehingga hari ini kita akan dapati grafnya semakin lama semakin menurun."
I am no intellectual but I can safely say that is why Malaysia is in the very sad state of affairs the author laments.
This part of his article,
"Lebih aneh lagi mereka-mereka ini berbangga dengan penulisan yang menggunakan kata-kata kesat dan lucah Jika dikaji penulis-penulis sebegini kebiasaannya tidak berani mendedahkan identiti mereka."
I guess the author had not really been down the gutters of his host's comment sections.
For the benefit of readers, and especially for the author's kind attention, I give you,

*The Malaysian Insider Martin Jalleh article,
"The country's 2009 FDI fell lower than the Philippines which attracted US$1 95 billion while Singapore raked in the most - more than US$16 billion. It was the first time ever that Malaysia attracted less investment than the Philippines."
U.S. foreign direct investment (FDI) in Malaysia was $13.5 billion in 2009 (latest data available), a 9.7 % increase from 2008.
Reported U.S. FDI in Malaysia is led by the manufacturing, mining, and banking sectors.
