    Click 'Ouch!' if you're upset

    IF THE subject matter of a Stomp story leaves a bad taste in your mouth, you can now click on the brand-new "Ouch!" option on the Mood Meter, an interactive feature which allows readers to express how they feel about a story.

    Stomp has replaced the "Enraged" option to "Ouch!", following a suggestion from a Stomper, Ms Lim, who feels that "Enraged" is too extreme.

    In an e-mail message to Stomp, she wrote: "The Mood Meter in Stomp should not show 'Enraged' as this implies great anger and may create discord and disharmony."

    She suggested that "Ouch!" be used instead.

    Besides that option, there are eight emotions that remain unchanged. They are: "LOL", "Cute", "Shiok", "Fail", "OMG", "Bochup", "Ewww" and "So Sad".

    So tell us how you feel about a story and have lots of fun while you are at it.

    Go to now and start expressing yourself.
