Two-year-old Bru, and goodbye Anon

This blog turns TWO today. It's bruised and battered, just as the blogger is. But here's hoping for another two good years of blogging.
After this posting, I plan to disallow comments by ANONYMOUS. For one very simple reason: there are way too many Anons. It's gotten really weird to refer to Anon 10:55, for example. Worse still when Anon 10:55 refers to Anon 8:20 for disagreeing with Anon 20:31 for running down Anon 17:55. You see?

To those of us who still prefer anonymity, simply choose a nickname and stick to it, at least throughout the same thread.

Better still, register that nickname as a Blogger. No Fear, right? After all, we've got ourselves a more blogger-friendly government now.

Here's to my Anons. Thank you for the support and guidance.

Rocky,

I thought this is your wisest decision for today he he....always been a silent visitor before....btw we met last year at Nuraina's Raya do...

for the anonses, berani kerana benar...

cheers...

Nizam Bashir said...

Happy birthday Rocky or rather, Rocky's blog. ;)

shar101 said...

Hahahaha!

Finally.. Rocky puts his foot down on Anon(s).

That would take care of any Anon with a multiple personality affliction using your blog to communicate.. contradict.. conspire with him/herself.

Ahhh.. bro.. What about certain bloggers with multiple blogs?

Happy 2nd Year Blog Anniversary, bro.

Salam Brader,

1. Well job. Congrat to u for 2 years job.

2. Biasanya 'Mak-Anon' ini yang selalu banyak cakap tapi 'tikus' kerana takut untuk register nama sebenar.

3. Ibu Anita Sarawak bernama Siput Sarawak. Sepatutnya Anonymous2 yang berkenaan digelar 'Siput Babi'. Bila nampak orang tarik kepala masuk dalam.

Bru,
I'm with you on this one, bro. The only Anon. that should remain to this day is those ancient singing nuns who rocked before Bach made the keyboard fashionable, only that no one knows who they these nuns are. The fact that posters still prefer to use 'Anonymous' reflects lack of individuality and character.

Or it's because they are too lazy to write a simple pen name. Or it's because of the way the blogging form is structured: when you fill your name, it is defaulted at 'Anonymous' and posters don't seem to know how to change the default to fill in their fake names. Either way, they are morons, to quote Pasquale!

As for being battered and bruised in the two years you've battled the Kali-Brendan-Hishamuddin-Syed Faisal rap artistes (the NST is a poor baruah they abuse), all you need to do is hang on to your horses while Dr M does the dirty work for you when he finally gets rid of the puppet PM strung by the 4th floor mafia.

Once the sleeping Lah steps down (or gets thrashed in the Umno elections), all your problems will be over because NST will be ordered by the new regime to drop the lawsuit. But you better watch out if the four desperados will continue their lawsuit but using Kali's money. He probably has millions stashed in his offshore accounts but if he didn't, he could easily sell his one of Rolex watches or one his cars to maintain the lawsuit. But would he? Depending on how much Kali wants to fix you, bru.

Other than that, have a nice time whacking these cronies!

Zainal A. Kasim said...

Bro,

Tahniah. 2 tahun. Like the suggestion on "anon" too.

jediraj said...

But Bro , what if i agree with Anon 10:55 who disagrees with Anon 10:59 who is refering to Anon 8:20 for disagreeing with Anon 20:31 after running down Anon 17:55? Good MOVE i must say .Cheers

ORIS said...

Congratulations Rocky.

You have done your 2 years good service to the people and nation. Personlly I am proud of your commitment and devotion to spur healthy communication amongst the people and the government, indirectly.

Agrees with you that too many Anon spoils the blog.

Heard Mohkzani quitted UMNO, following his Mom & Dad foot steps, but Mukhriz still remains. What is going on in Tun Mahathir family actually?

These kids are all billionaires, so they should all quit in support of their Father dreams.

Kids nowadays no longer like those past days; our days, where we have full respect and high regards of the statesman.

Plain 'Kurang Ajar' is the most appropriate word, but again this reflects directly to their parents for neglecting attention to these kids at their tender years.

Anyway, congratulations to you Rocky.

Encik Anonymus said...

can I change my nickname from Sinatra_Z to say Encik Anonymus?

rizal hashim said...

here's to more bru-ing, sir! no more glorifying the potters, that's my only request hahahahahaha jangan marah boss

Yusuf/Martin said...

Too right - I don't allow anonymous comments on my blogs. You should hold the courage of your convictions and not hide behind an onymous

Listen up, you Anon bastards. Time to get a name. Or better still you can borrow my name, which is free of the copyright law.

Awang Maya said...

Saudara rocky's bru,


Saya mahu saudara ulas mengenai cabaran saya terhadap DSAI agar menggesa DWA sebagai Ketua Pembangkang mengemukakan usul undi tidak percaya terhadap PM sekarang, AAB. itu kehendak rakyat sekarang. Awang percaya seluruh pelusuk rakyat sudah bosan dan semakin menyampah dengan kaedah kepimpinannya. Kami tak peduli dan tak nak ambil peduli pasal politiking yang Awang rasa amat memualkan yang sedang berlaku sekarang. Yang Awang dan rakyat mahu sekarang ialah turunkan kembali harga minyak, kerana itulah "HANTU" segala-galanya kepada peningkatan kos hidup yang membebani rakyat ketika ini. Pergi JAHANAM politiking, rakyat mahu kembali hidup seperti keadaan sebelum tahun 2004. UMNO, DAP, PKR..itu semua tak penting..kami orang kampung nak jugak keselesaan. Jangan asyik berpolitik nak memenuhi temolok masing-masing dengan menjadikan kami sebagai kuda tunggangan.

Rite on brader,

agree with you, anon 11.00 hates anon 10.50 very much because anon 12:31 disagreed with anon 12:49, well it turns out anon 09:45 is a distant cousin of anon 01:02 !!

LoL!!!

congratulations rocky, on your second anniversary

Bunda said...

Hah, I've always wondered why people still comment as an Anon. What's the problem of having a nick? What are they so afraid of?

Has fear been ingrained in our culture so much that so many don't even have the cojones to use a nick? If that is the case, it is a sad one, indeed.

It is a great move to block out the anonymous comments.

eh, cannot be liddat lah

caravanserai said...

The years gone by quickly
You thought you could do something for the community
Writing without fear or favor
Yet there are people just couldn’t take it
They want to use their wealth to muscle in

This is life bro
Nothing really changing
Except every one grows old and wiser
Else turning senile and writing nonsense

The good fight just glaring to go
The events in the country slowly unfolds
Lingam tape video and its report
And the Old Man quit UM-NO

And the frogs will keep croaking
Deeply in the pond occasionally popping up its heads
Eyes turning big mind listening attentively
For the call that they have to jump

The UM-NO ranks will crack
The ripples will not be seen now
It will happen in a few months
When the realization hit home

Now the peoples’ soldiers marching in
Silently in space and on the ground
You will have more stories to write
And share with us

Congrats for the 2 years
I came here since last year

Anonymous said...

Rocky,
Good suggestion as per the 'anonymous' ID, but i think it doesn't do shit as far as identifying or tagging certain commenters. AFAIK, a person can be represented by a zillion nicks or 'nom de plume', but what's important are the facts and substance of the post. Are you getting paranoid now, Rocky? ;)

Congrats. Wow! 2 years, huh? Rasa longer than that...maybe because its been my staple diet. Keep on going...you doing good, real good!

Hey Rocky,

It's so hilarious the way you blogged about 'Anon's....I agree with you though...

Here's cheers to two years of blogging!

kalo camni sesiapa yg sayangkan "anon' atau "anonymous" kenalah register sbg valid entity utk jd "font biru bergaris" cepat2 nih.... anonymouse


Tawaran hebat..Sapa cepat dia jadi anon..dulu kini & selama-lamanya hehehe.. :P

bagus juga Rockyfella..bila dah tiada "anon" baru nampak true colour

Anonymous said...

Tak bagi Anon tulis pun tak apalah. Sedehnya. Kami semua nak keluar dari blog Rocky Bru lah, macam Dr M jugalah. Tapi, untuk kali ini bagilah peluang sekali lagi nak tulis pasal Dr M. Saya minta mana-mana bloggers atau troopers, buat analisis mendalam mengenai rasional mengapa Dr M keluar Umno. Saya dah baca ribuan komen dalam hampir semua blog. Hanya Kadir Jasin saja yang bagi pandangan, tapi sikit sangat. Yang lain dok buat komen tapi tidak membuka minda lah. Dr M ada bagi raisonal dia keluar Umno dalam blog dia tapi kita juga nakkan orang lain ulas. Kalau kita fikir jauh sikit, pasti kita akan nampak rasional dia berbuat demikian. Saya dah nampak, tapi saja tak mahu kongsi lagi.

Hahaha...very funny punch line. Congratulation. One last anon posting from me before the final curtain. whispering9

Congratulations & Happy Second Birthday Rocky's Bru! Please do not stop writing. With the present stifling atmosphere of thought repression & coercion in our society and what with the MSM feeding the public with spinned out news, many of us can only turn to responsinble blogging to have different perspectives. I start my day with blog-reading as it keeps me a little sane and I do not feel like I'm a such a freak because a lot of the time, I think differently.

Ahmad Ibrahim said...

Dear Rocky, it is a good move as it is very practical. You are still one of the more user-friendly bloggers, no wonder the visitor count is approaching 5 million in 2 years! It is no mean feat.
On that subject, like him or hate him, the blogger chedet seems to be doing remarkably well. What's your take on it?

Blog ni memang antara yang best dan demokratik pada semua komentator. Kalau susah sangat nak komen atau komen kena cantas visitor pun tak syok nak beri pandangan terbuka kan?

Selamat Second Blog Anniversary, Rocky!

Thank you for keeping us informed daily. Who can live without Rock Bru?

Must admit one or three of the Anons is me. What to do either terikut-ikut or just lazy to type all the 18 words in the name box.

No more anon going forward, I promise.

boyer7882 said...

882Congratulations to the 2 years par existence par excellence .....!

It seems coincidental that rocky bru’s birthday is celebrated by both the resignation of TDM from his once championed party. This is the man that graced the party hierarchy for many full moons, the man who was pictured as the father of progress …….

The man that made many turn rich, …… and of course one that charted the many lives of Malaysians. To sum he was a hero of his time…he skirted issues that decremented him and he championed courses that benefited his agenda….

Today he is no more ….. how easy the affair has been, just dump them after you have finished using them. Jilted.

The funny thing is that Mr TDM how come all this generosity and sincerity do not portray in your siblings. Is it never enough for the TDM family? What is enough? Having taken all ….. businesses, properties, AP’s etc on the pretext of your party they now turn around to spit at this same entity. Just because you turned your back against it they too now turn their back against the same.

Now the race finally acknowledges…that all this while it was never for the party ……it was PERSONAL. ….ME, ME and ME.

Porches do not drop from the sky, Kencana does not puke from the sea…..if one was not the son of a Prime Minister, questionable the efforts to succeed such dishonesty.

The nation built racing tracks, for hobbies of sons, the country pays for excitement that tickles the delights of the premier. For when they nominate your son SIC chair, why did he not forego this post as well when he relinquished he position in the party?

Mr TDM maybe you were par excellence when running the country, maybe you were par excellence when running the government but you definitely failed in raising your own family. For now we see that they have no proper upbringing to respect the elders or those that provided for their luxuries in life.

That is why the children of Malaysia not respect you anymore…….!

Syed Hamid for DPM!

Apelah ada pada nama?
Tapa I rasa Anon, sebenar "secret admire who knows"
Malu-malu kucing.Bukan pengecut. Tak bernama bukan bermakna takde suara. Bersuara bukan nilai pada rupa (macam burung merbok jarang ade nama)
Tak pun kami mussafir lalu,biarlah kami dengan dunia kami.
Bukan publisiti kami cari,juga kami bukan Anynobloggerr (takdek blog sendiri le tu). Nak tumpang cari makan. Bukan semua orang ade nama, berpangkat atau orang berada.Kalau member kita 150-300 orang takkan terhafal nama-nama diaorang, kecik pulak hati member.

apapun wa kena hormat dengan keputusan lu, ni blog lu kan, so sukahati lu la apa nak buat..

itulah yang dinamakan 'kebebasan' mesti ada hadnya.. (tabik spring skuad..! seperti mana yang diamalkan di msm..) dengan memadamkan nama anon bermakna tak semua yang dibuat atas nama kebebasan tu bagus... hahaha..kan lebih baik padamkan saja identity anonymous dalam 'choose an identity' tu - kalau bukan untuk diguna buat apa dibiarkan kat situ? hehe..

bila hilang semua anon-anon yang dah kena chop 'penakut' ni wa ingat blog lu ni akan bertambahlah kredibilitinya & kelihatan sudah dipantau dengan begitu baik & kemas sekali sebagai blog arus perdana... maaf zahir batin, syabas, thank you, best wishes & bai bai..

I feel constructive opinions are ok, personally, i dislike vulgarity being posted thou every second word i use them lol

So Anons, maybe you guys need to respect the request of the blog owner.... if you cant, just stop posting, mana ada susah, bikin susah sahaja ke ke ke cari la tempat lain, mungkin ikut Tun dan bikin susah ke ke ke just kiddin

be happy ppl

In your case, I fully understand your anti-Anonymous move.
