Or so says Shaziman Abu Mansor, the deputy minister for Energy, Water and Communications.
Refer page 16 of theSTAR today, where Shaziman effectively defined two types of bloggers:
1/ Wild Wild Web blogger.
"Wild Wild Web are bloggers who hide and shoot but are afraid to come out in the open for confrontation," he said.
2/ Gentleman and Responsible blogger.
"If they are truly gentlemen and responsible (for what they blogged), they should show themselves."
I do not "hide and shoot" and I am not "afraid to come out in the open" (although I think 'discussion' is more apt than 'confrontation'). I show myself so I am a gentleman and a responsible blogger, right?
Well, so are these guys:
AKJ aka The Scribe
MalaysiaToday's Raja Petra
SKTHEW of MageP's Lab
Ron the Gerbang Ruhanie
James Wong of Freedom in Solidarity
Fathi Aris Omar of Patah Balek
Syed Imran of Kuda Ranggi
Khalid Jaafar and, of course,
Screenshots' Jeff Ooi
Thanks, deputy minister.
Now, if you could do all of us gentlemen and responsible bloggers a favour and tell your Contents Forum's honorary secretary about us, starting with Jeff Ooi.
