Now, will all you "goblok" (stupid in Javanese) bloggers please stand up, and, er, be counted.
So we now have, according to Zam, goblok bloggers and bloggers. Goblok bloggers are political bloggers and they are stupid. And if I read Zam correctly, he did not care to differentiate between political bloggers and those who tell lies.
Conveniently, he has tarred them with the same brush.
Really, I wanted to laugh. Then, for the love of my country, I wanted to cry.
But I think I'll go with MarinaM who thinks it is better to laugh.
Zam's very intelligent assessment was just too much that it threatened to tickle me, but, wait, I thought I was going to just cry. For the love of my country.
But , as Marina reminded me, why cry because of idiots like them. Ah, that made perfect sense.
"I think laughing is better," Marina said in her SMS. Okay, I am now laughing.
I feel so much better.
Here, folks. Here's what Zam said:
KUALA LUMPUR: Information Minister Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin says not all bloggers are stupid as some of them are informative, knowledgeable and disseminate positive views on current issues.
The ones that were mostly goblok (stupid, in Indonesian) were political bloggers who float rumours and create hatred among the people, he said yesterday.
He said political bloggers “blatantly abused the freedom of the Internet.” “Readers of these blogs read them to pass time and for fun, akin to reading a ghost story.
The people must be able to distinguish between goblok bloggers and bloggers,” he added. – Bernama
Are they getting better at sounding asinine?
For the love of our country, it may no longer be funny.
