• @potatochip @peanutbutterjelly @shimmerstars They never explained what was the cause of her death?
  • @peanutbutterjelly :/ don’t leave, your opinions have always been well balanced. Will greatly miss you. Also I don’t feel you are a multi accounter. @jimmyszeto what’s up with you lately? You used to be pretty level headed, but lately, it seems like you want to attack everyone and anyone. I used to quite enjoy your comments, but lately, not so much. You also used to not accuse people of this and that, yet now you are accused other of what you hate most! It’s almost like your account has been hacked by certain someone >_> though the writing isn’t the same mannerism
  • @peanutbutterjelly I agree with you to some extent. While I also feel this article was in poor taste, choosing to leave because of it is a bit extreme (though with that said, it is your decision at the end of the day so we need to respect that). For me, while I understand Jaynestars’ reason for publishing this particular article and I don’t necessarily blame them for doing so, I will admit that I am disappointed. I guess since I’ve always considered JS as similar to a fan site rather than an official mainstream news site like Mingpao, Oriental Daily, HK01, etc, they are under no obligation to “report” every single aspect of the news that is currently out there (unlike official media sites that have that type of obligation to the public it services). In other words, they have a choice amongst the dozens upon dozens of articles published everyday by the various news outlets, which ones they want to feature and through their choices, it tells us a lot about what they hold important in managing their site. There have been times where I’ve actually questioned (more rhetorically than anything else) the choice of articles that the site chooses to feature (or not to feature) and while at times, I still get frustrated with it all, I try to bring it back to this being a fan site and it makes it easier to accept (at least for me). Like you and others, I’ve also had my fair share of run-ins with other members, which is one of the reasons why I don’t post comments as much as I used to and when I do, it’s only on very specific articles. It can definitely feel discouraging, but I’ve decided that life is too short to let myself get too worked up over this stuff anymore. Of course, I’m not advocating that we all agree with each other all the time because that’s not how real life works, but at minimum, we should be treating each other with civility, even if we disagree — and yes, I’ve disagreed with you often but I appreciate the fact that you’re always able to bring solid arguments to the table and well-stated points to back up those arguments. The tell-tale sign of a good debate in my opinion is being able to “agree to disagree” in the end. For this, I thank you! Whether you decide to stay or leave, your decision deserves to be respected. Best of luck to you!
  • @peanutbutterjelly - I can understand where you are coming from as we do always want to give respect to the deceased. However, I don’t see this article as a disrespect or out of line to Yammie’s death. As Jayne as mentioned at the top, it is just a informative report that is just shedding light on her past relationships. And there were no negative meaning to it; although I do believe that the title of the article could change to be less negative.
  • @peanutbutterjelly I actually can see what you mean and can understand how you feel. I feel that was too but yet I do not want to take it to heart too much. I used to want to quit this site too as some were insulting me and calling me a hypocrite and other bad names. I was disheartened but overtime, I learned not to care so did not let it bother me. Therefore, I think if you think of this at a different angle then maybe it is not so bad? However, whatever your decision is, good luck to you and maybe one day you can come back.
  • @peanutbutterjelly I understand your decision and share your disappointment with this article. I tried to register for Asianfanatics several months ago but they are having technical issues. Unfortunately, it looks like that forum isn't very active anymore. It feels like this website is also losing members rapidly. This is probably a reflection of the decline in HK dramas but also because of articles and discussions like this one. I hope in the future you will come back. I understand if you no longer comment. Good luck with everything!
  • @potatochip Thank you I feel the same way about the diversity of thoughts too. However, when choosing to publish content like this article and not revoking it has made this site off-putting to me. I used to be a silent reader on Asianfanatics before finding this site so I'll probably go back there. Hope I made everything clear and people can see where I'm coming from. I'm actually glad to see your comment because you're one of the persons whom's input I will miss the most on this platform. You always approach things from a very sensible and empathic perspective. I know I already come off as noncommital by still responding but it feels right to respond to you as my final post here and end things on a somewhat positive note at least. Goodbye and thank you.
  • @peanutbutterjelly Please, don’t leave. I like reading your opinions. I like the diversity of thoughts on this site even if I don’t agree with all of them and some may be infuriating. But I find your thoughts to be well written and in line with many of my values I don’t agree with this article and think it is also extremely poor taste but I am forgive Jaynestars because they are just translating existing news instead of writing the articles themselves. Unfortunately, society is so cruel and this article is a reflection on its judgmental and superficial nature.

  • @peanutbutterjelly It's not about me being happy or not. You and yourself only who decided to stop using the site. There are a diversified variety of articles you can read. It won't bother me in the slightest if you overturned your decision.
  • @jimmyszeto I will say this once and for all: I have never been banned before and have only ever had this one account. It's infuriating that you accuse me of something like this, especially when you know the feeling of being accused of the exact same thing. Jaynestars can ban whoever they want (even though I did nothing wrong) because it's their site. But to suggest that they are above criticism or that my reply is an 'overreaction' is ridiculous. I have carefully read their explanation and it's a weak one. Matter of fact still stands: Even in death, they still choose to capitalize on the gossip at the expense of the person who died. They even admitted that most are ‘rumors’ in this article so what is even the point other than encouraging salacious gossip of a person who just died? What does this contribute to her legacy as an actress? I kept hopefully checking that this article will be deleted after Jaynestars realized how disrespectful this is. However, at this point it doesn't matter anymore. After this whole ordeal is over (and you or other people stop replying to me) I will stop reading and commenting on any further articles on this site (hope you're happy). Not under this account. Not under any account. So stop accusing me and properly apologize.
  • @peanutbutterjelly You haven't walked away yet and is still reading so you are still supporting and 'you can't bring yourself to do this' is a load of nonsense. Yes. I said you have possibly been banned numerous times just based upon that you are making such a overreaction by criticizing Jaynestars then refusing to listen to her explanation and suggesting you leaving in a high profile post. Why not just quietly move on and not visit this site again? Anyway, I will definitely apologise if you aren't a multi account abuser. I have been accused many times before and it is frustrating if it isn't true....
  • @kidd 'If the celeb who died is a man and some article with the title ‘XXX Was Link With 11 Women’ would so many people said the article is disrespectful?' Yes.
  • @jimmyszeto Okay you made me go back on my word that that would be my last post so I guess congratulations. I have nothing to hide and I have no other account other than this one. Ask Jaynestars themselves to check my IP or whatever else you need to check. I am all for disagreements and criticisms. Don't like what I have to say? No problem. Call me out on whatever you like but if you accuse me and defame my character like that I won't stand for it. Go on, tell me who else you think I am but I can 100% assure you that you will be wrong. I posted some unpopular opinions before under this, my one and only, account and have never been afraid to express my real thoughts. I sure don't need multiple accounts to do that. Go on @Jayne, expose me. I thought you were reasonable enough before Jimmy, sure we disagreed on certain topics but at least I didn't think you were this childish or petty, especially for a father. I'm an adult who has responsibilities and a life and I have no time for these kinds childish games or pettiness. I'm deeply disappointed in your remarks.
  • @peanutbutterjelly Is this the best way of retaliating against Jaynestars after possibly being banned numerous times under different usernames. Don't worry! you won't be be gone. You will just go ahead and open up another account..
  • This will be my last post on here and I will not come back on Jaynestars. Because if I do I'd be supporting this and I can't bring myself to do this anymore. Goodbye to everyone who happens to read this, I hope you reconsider doing the same if you feel the same way I do.
  • @jayne Intent doesn't matter because action speaks louder than words. And the action now is that you posted an article titled 'Yammie Lam Was Linked With 11 Men' about a recently deceased actress. Even in death, you choose to capitalize on the gossip at the expense of the person who died. You even admit that most are 'rumors' so what is even the point other than encouraging salacious gossip of a person who just died? There is no respect in this. None. Hate to say it but I think even trash like TMZ has more dignity than that. But I guess in the end you got what you wanted.. Clicks, traffic on your site and engagement in the comment section. Profit before empathy. I'm sorry Yammie, you've suffered enough. May you rest in peace.
  • @jimmyszeto I disagree. Depending on your own personal values and morals, it can and should be seen as 'out of line'. You're talking from a business perspective and I guess that's smart. Just like how it is smart to pay children one dollar an hour to make shirts in third world countries. Smart yes but morallly reprehensible. I'm sure Jaynestars knows what they're doing and that's exactly the reason people are calling them out.
  • @peanutbutterjelly I had the same thoughts as you but maybe that was not the intention of this site? Jayne has always been very respectful and maybe they just wanted to remember Yammie? However, I think they should have talked about more positive things instead of her tragic love life. Yammie did have some happiness in her life too so it was not all negative stuff.
