Step 3 - EITHER:

a. criticise the post which offended you and claim that the poster is lying. Depending on amount of free time, engage in flame war


b. create own ******** post with an outrageously high fantasy salary to piss other people off.

Step 4 - 'Rebel' by posting outrageously low salary to make political statement about the plight of the poor in Singapore.
Very accurate description, especially "Step 3b"!

"Step 3b" is a very weird psychological phenomenon.

Similar examples are someone telling you that your garden here in Singapore is smaller than their cousin's horse shed in Australia, when that someone himself is staying in an HDB flat, or someone perpetually concerned about the lack of Nobel Prize winners from our top schools, when that someone didn't even go to a top school.
