What's in a name? A lot!!! Such as Whistleblower Protection Act!!!!!

Burden of guilt!??! But, at least give it a good and better name!

It makes you feel dirty and guilty, or just not noble enough for doing it because if you did do it, you are not sure whether you are doing it for the right reasons!
In a big country country like North America, it is called a Witness Protection Program, where you are willing to spill your guts to put someone like Al Capone, or John Dillinger, corrupt presidents, or CEOs to be found guilty and then if your lives are in danger after spilling your guts you are whisked away with a new identity.
In Malaysia I wouldn't want to be a whistelblower or a snitch or a tattle-tale, if by doing the right thing I would be branded as a whistleblower or a snitch or a tattle-tale!!
Why can't the government come out with a much less negative names for the Act and to replace the word "whistleblower"!
Just try to give a better description of what the rakyat will do to make our system a better system...but definitely not by being a whistleblower!
Those people who do the right thing and blow the whistle on misdeeds need to be protected. How about "A Witness Protection Act 2012?!"
