Two weeks later - The New Straits Times forms a firewall to prevent staff, journalists and otherwise, from having access to Rocky's Bru from the main office in Jalan Riong, KL

Jan 2007 - NSTP files lawsuit again this blogger and Jeff Ooi for defamation

April 5, 2007 - The National Alliance of Bloggers, or All-Blogs, established to help promote responsible blogging and protect bloggers

    Best wishes. You started well on neutral ground but of late have chosen to be the tool of certain parties for reasons best known to you. Anyway, the choice is yours and yours alone. Actually, nothing wrong in being a tool or taking sides. However, please don't have two faces and drop that holier than thou stance. Dari Dia kita datang, kepada Dia kita akan between it is all cosmetic. All the best.

    Yup...that is also how long I have followed your blog. Sometimes, I like what you wrote. Sometimes, I hate it. Other times, I just read it with no feeling. Guess it is just a reader sinusoidal thoughts. Anyway, thanks for blogging. w9

  6. Congratulations! It takes a lot to say and stand by what you believe in.

    "32-year-old son of blogger Raja Petra Raja Kamaruddin pleaded guilty in the Magistrate’s Court here today to four counts of stealing and possessing stolen goods, worth RM17,870."... now i bet RPK will say his son was framed by the government...


  8. So Bro, you better remember your new roots. These few items (and more coming) are your new roots. I believe it will be a pain in the ass for you if you lose them.

  9. For someone who's blog was born the same year as yours (albeit a couple of months earlier), allow me to extend my heartiest congratulations.

    Many, many more years of blogging success to you, Rocky!

  10. Blogging is career-enhancing as well!!!

  11. Congrats on being 3!

    Keep up the critiques, bru!
