Oh! For F**K's sake!
I think it is time we set the records straight. Not all bloggers are politicians or political activists or members of political parties. In fact I daresay the majority are not. So let's not lump all us all in the same shit hole, eh?
In the same story it was reported that "The report against the blog is the second incident involving bloggers within 10 days". This of course refers to the arrest last week of Parti Keadilan Rakyat information bureau staff Nathaniel Tan who uses a blog for his purposes. He just happens to be a political party member who uses a blog. So he's a blogger. Yes? Just like the rest of us who should take the same blame and heed the warnings, right? Wrong.
So guys, it's a thin line that should not be crossed.
There was another irony in the same story. Mat Taib was quoted as saying, “I think they are very irresponsible and forget that our country has the sensitivities on the Yang di-Pertuan Agong institution, race and religion”. This is very ironic and tragically funny because it comes in the wake of Mr. Keris waving Hishamuddin Hussein telling the MCA in so many words to "Shut the fuck up" on the secular vs. Islamic state issue. It would appear that in Malaysia some races are more sensitive than others.
NIAMAH!!! NIAMAH!!! NIAMAH!!!
