I pointed this out several months ago in a blog post at House of Ideas entitled See the difference? and needless to mention, it elicited little response from the Texan motherfucker Rob Jones. Since my Digital Point Forums account has been unbanned, and I know that any postings I make here will appear in the forum, I have decided to do a little link-baiting here and connect this blog to the original blog post I made earlier.
There’s no need to repost the comparison photos either, a link is good enough. I am sure it is bound to send the decrepit old man in flames…assuming if he sees the feed from a forum thread of mine, eh Robber Bones?
So I disappeared again for several days before reappearing again. I make no apologies for doing that, after all I have a lot of things to do with my life than to create nasty Facebook pages about someone else’s son or insulting and demeaning Islam via Facebook and Twitter, like a certain fugly, flowerhorn face bitch that I know.
Anyway, I think it is time for me to stop posting about eclectic or personal news about myself or my family on this blog, and go back to what I originally intended for it when I first started it: to focus in issues related to religion and comparative religion. I would have included issues about Malaysian politics as well, but since I already own Suara Malaysia, I don’t really quite see the point. Perhaps I will make one or two comments about Malaysian politics occasionally, but it will no longer be the focal point of this blog like it used to be.
For eclectic and personal blog postings, I have decided that I will continue doing that at House of Ideas.
Quite a lot of things had happened since the last real update to this blog (am not referring to the filler posts in between) was actually written by yours truly. In my defense, I have been busy working on and developing a strong directory network, as well as travelling back and forth between KL and JB. Speaking of JB, I have a scathing criticism of this “city” which I plan to blog about soon, but not now. Lets just say that the end-result isn’t going to make JB citizens happy, but tough criticism is needed to lure some folks out of their self-delusion.
In brief, here are some major events that took place in the past couple of weeks.
- Japan earthquake and tsunami. My heart goes out to their people of Japan and my condolences for their loss and personal tragedy. I am as usual amazed at the Japanese resilience and steadfast determination to recoup and rebuild their losses in the wake of the massive destruction. I saw the videos of the earthquake and the tsunami destruction especially…it wasn’t pretty.
- Libyan uprising and revolt. The sooner that madman Muammar Gadhafi is kicked out of the country, the better it would be for Libya and its residents.
- Alleged DSAI “sex tape”. Nothing more than lies, lies and lies. BN will find out that continuously playing on this issue will only make them self-destruct in the end.
- Sarawak elections. I seriously doubt Taib Mahmud can be voted out of office (unfortunate as that may be), but miracles can happen. No one expected Barisan Nasional to lose their two-thirds majority in 2008, right?
Here’s a trillion dollars to those mahaliar58 fans who are polluting my blog with their inane comments, if you stop praising that motherfucker as a “good Muslim”, STFU and get lost from my blog forever.
More exposures of mahabodoh58 to be published soon, insha’allah. Stay tuned! For those curious about the “Zimdollar” bill, they can read about it here.
I decided to get around importing my very old blog posts, complete with comments and all, dating back from 2005 – 2007, during a time when this blog was still hosted on the menj.org domain under the same name. The reasons why I took it offline were numerous, chiefly among them being that I wanted a new direction for myself and the blog. At the same time, I do recognise the value of these old posts, as they were made during my formative years while cementing my ideology and it shaped up into who I am today.
So in recognition of that fact, I bring to you Critical Thoughts Retro…bigger, longer and uncut. I’ve dumped all the old posts under one category as they are here strictly for archival and historical purposes. Most of the posts have broken links and broken images anyway, so they are in fact very outdated. If I actually have the time, I might go around fixing them but I don’t plan to do so for the time being.
My Bahasa Melayu blog, which was previously located at www.menj.org, has been moved and pointed to a “new” domain at www.ibnjuferi.org. Pendapat Kritis is now very much established and so far, I have not come across any issues. It makes more sense to use this domain instead of the previous one, as it pairs up very well with Critical Thoughts‘s own URL. Like two peas in a pod. Two sides of the same coin.
You get the picture.
That, plus the fact that the blog has escaped a nasty Google penalisation that involves the old domain. I am not going to get rid of the menj.org domain, however, as that serves as part of my identity. I am already planning on something new to do with it.
This blog will soon be heading for a revival, with a new theme and a revised approach to its niche. The concept will be similar to its sister blog and that means less ads. I’ve decided that the only way to go is to minimise the advertisements for the blog and focus more on content. Yes, content! That is the key.
I’ve finalised the details of how I want the new design for this blog to look like with the designer, there should be a sneak preview of it coming your way soon.
In a few hours and as soon as the DNS nameservers for my new server account resolves, I will initiate the transfer of this blog to its own server. Yes, you read this right, I now own my own server and can even offer hosting services if I so wish it. However I will not be offering such services at the moment, as I am in the midst of organising my blogs and website assets. The new server datacenter will be based in the US, and since it is a privately-owned dedicated server, performance will be much better than before. Paying for the cost of the server is quite considerable, but at least it didn’t force me to apply for payday loans online in order to maintain it.
Finally the change has been made and I got the customised theme that I’ve always wanted for this blog. Beautiful, isn’t it? Still have to work on the sidebars as there is an issue with the 125×125 banners, but regardless this is already very close to what I visualised for the blog.
After this is done, I will go on a promotion spree to drive traffic to the blog, shouldn’t be a problem.
Coming soon, a WordPress theme fit for a problogger. Me, myself and I. The coder promised me that it will be delivered tomorrow. Let’s see how it goes by then.
Critical Thoughts now has a new theme. Originally I had wanted to release this theme for WordPress as a free sponsored theme and I even put up an auction for it but for some strange reason that only God knows, no one is bidding even after 72 hours! But since I have another two themes in stock anyway, I thought I might as well use this theme for my own blog.
So here it is now, Purple Maple for my exclusive use.
If anyone is interested to sponsor this theme for whatever reason after reading this rant however, I would be more than willing to make it available for sponsorship again. Just drop me an e-mail for more details.
You can read the original press statement by PEMBELA / ACCIN here. It seems that some bloggers are already commenting on the press statement by relying on a second-hand report by Malaysiakini which, by the way, does not furnish the full details. Sadly, these people have misconstrued the main points of the press statement by the two largest Islamic NGO coalitions in the country and have started their “spin” about it…or what ZAM would refer to as goblok bloggers. Not that I agree with ZAM in the first place, but he sure does have a point about these goblok bloggers who take things out of context instead of reading the actual press statement by PEMBELA / ACCIN.
And if I can find the time, I will most certainly translate the press statement so that the Liberals will not try to take it out of context and spin the meaning of it and delude those who do not read Bahasa Melayu very well.
