We all know that privacy is one of the main concerns in this information technology era. However, censoring all details does not help the public to look for that particular person to return the item.
Recently, a netizen found an IC at Ah Bok Mamak restaurant in Penang and he intend to seek for the owner through Facebook.
He took a picture of the IC and what he did back fired. He literally covered all the details of the IC, making it impossible for anybody to recognise whose IC it is.
His intentions were honourable, however, it wasn’t executed properly.
The only words that were shown on the IC was “Kad Pengenalan Malaysia” and “MyKad” with the Malaysia flag and smart chip. Netizens started to make fun of him and there were several hilarious comments. Some even took the effort to edit the photo into different characters.
Although his efforts didn’t go well, we should commend him for his intentions. Alternatively, one can choose to hand the IC over to the police station and let the authorities handle it.
