I Know Where My Rectum Is, Thank You Very Much!

These days, it seems like everybody wants to take a shot at bloggers. Why, eh? That sorry-ass Tengku said bloggers are liars, in particular, women bloggers are liars. Then, Rehman Rashid said this:

The local blogosphere is the domain of life-challenged grumblestiltskins and disenfranchised pundits whose asinine maunderings only show why they should never have had day jobs in the first place.Rumour, inuendo, half-truths and damned lies are their stock-in-trade, and previously sacrosanct standards, principles and ethics are now laughable.Are they not entitled to their opinion? Of course they are, as much as everyone is entitled to ignore them. I would venture, however, that everyone has an opinion and a rectum, and not that many seem capable of telling one from the other.

What is it about bloggers that make people want to whack us so much? Is it because these people can’t read anything that’s not printed in lead and on felled trees? Is it because they simply can’t navigate their way through cyberspace to reach these blogs that they are taking it out on us rather than admit that they are PC illiterate? Is it because bloggers write what we feel as opposed to what our bosses tell us to write? Is it because bloggers come up with better and more interesting things to write compared to newspaper columnists? Or is it because more and more readers are turning to blogs for ideas and input these days, leaving the non-bloggers feeling a tad inadequate?

Whatever it is, I don’t really need to know. What I do know is that I am quite capable of distinguishing my opinion from my rectum and if anybody thinks that there are people out there who have problems distinguishing the two, perhaps that somebody has had such problem himself. It takes one to know one.

Those who try to put bloggers to shame are basically worried that their 'pekong di dada' are exposed (especially those corrupted ones); they are dishonest people; they fear of the unknown (whether the net in general, or blogs in particular); they are concerned if their sales go down since more and more people rely on blogs for news instead of newspapers and they are misinformed and misguided (obviously not all blogs are about politics and current issues). TQ.
