Dumbass Of The Week

I believe when I wake up next morning, I am going to regret writing this. I have told many people not to judge others. I have told many people that there is no such thing as a bad blog. I am about to break that cardinal rule myself.

I was browsing through Cowboy Bar when I came across a thread discussing how a certain Pink blogger was bashing a fellow blogger over the latter's nude pics.

I dismissed the notion that some claimed that Pink was just being a sour grape, now that another person has surpassed her in terms of blog fame and popularity.

I also dismissed another notion that Pink was trying to score hits to her blog by stirring up a hornet's nest. Surely, she can't be that pathetic, right?

I can understand that the rant in her blog (yes, I went over.) was directed at all the daft attention that came pouring over the pictures. With no thanks to the Mickey Mouse media who made such a big f*cking deal, the mindless peons are buzzing non-stop about it. I agree with Pink that it's merely a couple of pictures and I too, feel sorry for the severely deprived people out there, lapping it all up like a thirsty dog.

However, what pushed me over the edge was the personal attack on the innocent blogger. What the innocent blogger choose to do on her blog is her business and all of Pink's personal attacks on her, just didn't go down well with me. For the record, I don't know this innocent blogger and I am not writing this in her defence. I am writing this because I am appalled at such nasty behaviour.

YOU CROSSED THE LINE. YOU DUMBASS.

To take somebody's photo and alter it in mockery is UTMOST DISRESPECTFUL. All of us are all God's beautiful creation. So who the f*ck died and made Pink the authority on how we should look?

Dear Pink,

Congratulations. You have sunk to a new low. Some say that you looked beautiful in the photos, others say that it's because you caked your face up to get there. I say to them, "let's not waste time arguing over this, for both are merely skin-deep trivia". What matters most is that you have a rotten core for a human being. I am glad blog was invented and you are part of it. Otherwise, we would have been fooled by your exterior and not see what's behind that mask of yours. Now that I have seen the inside, I am not impressed.

Suddenly, missing Bloggers.sg doesn't looked so bad after all.

Tommorrow.sg's credibility takes a severe beating with you on it.


You have lowered yourself to the bottom of the scum pit.

Here, take the shovel and start digging. You still have a long way to go. Dumbass.

wow! at 1st i thought it was harsh of you, coz pink said it wasn't a personal attack, but an attack of the pointy t*ts.

but then, again, it's personal because who are you without t*ts, right? just like i don't like your face, but i have no problem with you...who can accept that kind of remarks without feeling offended.
ps: and i wouldn't dare 'tomorrow'ed' this post :)

Sheena: Glad to know that I am not the only one who feels that way. You may want to throw in the 2 watermelons, on top of the 10 thumbs up for good measure. :P

aGentX: Believe me, I toned it down a lot already. You should have read my initial draft. It was machiam like dropping a nuclear warhead on a garden slug.

Anna: We'll see how it goes, won't we? I dun think she would be THAT stupid to do it as it would further affirm my conviction of her.

er.... she wouldn't right? Would she?

Ahdokboy: Chao Private! Good to hear from you! Hope you have had a great vacation! Glad that you are on the "Rebel Alliance" side against the Bandung Vader.

when i read Pink's entry bout the other lady i was quite turn off by what she said. Pink's practically contradicting herself. She said that whatever one blogs in their blog is their own business and what did she do? Also, she claimed that she is not insulting the lady only criticising her body. Ain't it the same?

From the way she wrote her entry, i can sense there's some sort of jealousy going on there. It is quite obvious that the lady took her limelight and she ain't happy bout it. Probably because she couldn't do the same thing (posing nude artistically) as what the lady had done. Maybe she is jealous also because the lady is younger than her and achieved a kind of lifestyle that not many can get.

Well this is my point of view.

9. You know who I am from my emails left...
Wednesday, 15 June 2005 2:35 am
To be honest, I'm starting to get very annoyed by XX myself. She just doesn't learn to keep her mouth shut. It's one thing to be a blabbermouth. It's quite another to be a stupid blabbermouth.

As I've advocated in the comments section of another blog, she's better off with a cock in her mouth, as she can do what she does best, and we don't have to hear her speak.

Wednesday, 15 June 2005 2:35 am :: 
Lexandria: I don't really have a problem with what she wrote as I really don't give a rat's ass about it. Besides, she is free to write whatever she pleases.

What I cannot accept is the act of stealing other people's picture for the purpose of mockery vandalism. To top it off, she added her "blog advert" onto the altered picture.
I am speechless.

11. JayWalk left...
Wednesday, 15 June 2005 2:49 am :: 
YKWIAFME: Like I said earlier to Lexandria, I have no qualms against Bandung Vader being a blabbermouth.

It is the content of the blabber that puts me off as it is a direct reflection of her character.

Frankly, it stinks.

Very well crafted rant with just enough humour and sarcasm (not too deep though, otherwise lovers of pink might not catch it) although I would have loved to see the original draft. Especially loved the "dropping a nuclear warhead on a garden slug" bit, you might get emails of protest from garden slugs (or their supporters, you never know) stating that comparing her to a slug is an insult, to slugs everywhere.

Kudos!

I feel pink can write whatever you choose to in her blog, but if she writes to bash/hurt another, its like hitting below the belt. It sucks, its totally uncalled for. And I totally agree it that it takes credibility out of lotsa things..

Great post. I couldn't have put it better. Would love to have your first draft though. Bandung Vader has fallen into the evil side. For months she have been showing signs of it, but people gave her a chance. Now this is the last straw liao. I am sure I'll glare at her at the BloggerCon. WTF is she doing in Tomorrow? And at the BloggerCon meeting? I hope they won't make this event PINK. Woe is me.

zeenie: Good one with the slugs! ~LOL. I was pretty emotional when I did the first draft and I saw the BMW* in me. Fortunately, I have enough good sense to slam the brakes in time and trim off the parts, that even I think BMW didn't deserve.

Besides, I deleted it away liao lah and believe me, you really don't want to read it.

*BMW = Blabber Mouth W***y

AnthonyK: What ticked me off, was that the attack was unwarranted. I just felt that I need to take a stand and voice my displeasure here.

My concern is that Bandung Vader is on the board of the vetting process of Tomorrow.sg. Will our submissions be treated with the same condescending attitude as exhibited by her blog?

Agagooga: I have my reasons for doing so. Perhaps if YKWIAFME is reading this comment, he could fill you in on it?

Barffie: Alamak, you also another one who want the down and dirty version. :P

Like I said to someone last night, I can't bring myself to her level and fight her there. She would beat me to a pulp with her experience.

On behalf of garden slugs all over the world, we would like the protest the debasement of our hardworking and useful species by your unfair and hurtful comparison.

And, for the record, nobody drops a nuclear warhead on garden slugs. It only mutates us to become bigger than your house and allows us to suffocate you puny humans to a slimy death.

Dropping salt on garden slugs in another matter, but that would constitute cruel and unusual punishment that we can only wish afflicted on irresponsible bloggers.

garden-slug: How the heck did you managed to type in a comment? Mutation? You have fingers already?

I must say, for a slug, your engerand is more better than mine.

Originally, I want to say "drop a nuclear warhead on an oyster" but look how that turned out.

Fink someone did a mimic of Pink in his "Ihatepink" blog. But he was only posing like Pink (which was funny). But with this entry, Pink's def crossed the line big time. Best to boycott her blog.

i hate pink (the colour), and i don't like what XX wrote about SPG's anatomy. you may be right to call her actions 'disrespectful', but to call her a dumbass in the same breath?

p.s. the editors of Tomorrow.sg seldom agree. try not to base your judgment of Tomorrow on a single editor ;)

tinkertailor: "Dumbass" was an emotional outburst that regretfully, once uttered, cannot be retracted. I can't say it was a proud moment for me then.

As to the editors of Tomorrow.sg, you are right to say that I shouldn't base my judgment on a single editor. So I won't. I have corresponded with one of you and I think the board of editors are alright after an enlightening chat.

Tinkertailor: Darth Bandung IS a dumbass. She's a disrespectful dumbass at that. There are ways of criticising people without behaving in such a blatantly childish manner. Honestly, "dumbass" is probably too kind for her. What about all the names she's called other people (not just SPG)? In my opinion, her actions this time have crossed the line from being merely bitchy to being downright vicious.

And for a blogger who gets 8000 hits a day, she needs to be smart enough to exercise some control and decorum over her writing, especially when she has an entire herd of sheep all ready to tear down/trample/drive away anyone she dislikes. She does not seem to understand the ramifications of her actions, and the responsibilities and power she holds. That's why she's dumb. She's not intelligent enough to draw a line between what she can do and can't do, and what is deliciously sly humour and outright insults.

i love the name bandung vader. it's just hilarious!!

and u know my views on this (i think) and you should try reading fp if you think that her blog is bad...
gosh. i don't know why we bother reading them. really.

u think it's just the human instinct to torture ourselves.

One of the bluntest and most truthful posts I've read yet.

You're right. Defacing SPG's photo did cross a line - I'm not partial to either of them (being new to the blogging scene), but that mockery was just a blatant cry for attention that a pissy 6 yr-old would make.

Usually I find XX somewhat entertaining, but certainly not with that post.

Jay - Can't agree with you more. But hey, from the marketing standpoint, any publicity (esp bad ones) is good publicity. Pink has achieved her purpose in generating controversy and hits. I think Mickey Mouse will feature her blog again this weekend. However, I believe she has stepped into the Dark Side, a long and slippery road. Darth Pink NaBeh of Flur Buck System is born. The conclusion is already scripted ……

Was watching TV last night and saw a preview of some Chinese talk show. Pink is one of the invited guests (more publicity). As a veteran ah lian observer, I think she puts on too much make up. Sepak (slap) her in Marina South and you'd be able to see a mushroom cloud of mascara in JB.

Re-Post as this particular comment fell off the server. May not be word for word but the main jist is there lah. Damn gremlins!!

Sheena: You damn jialat, your own 2 water melons also want to give away for an iPod. Let me think about this attractive offer for a second.... No.

Don't be jealous lah. Koo koo one time strike Blogger-4D. One time only lah.....

Dicta: I think that spoof pink-blog started right about the time when she was raising a big ruckus over the alleged taxi stealing fiasco. I don't see any harm in that as it was done tongue in cheek.
This however, was outright vicious.

Goodness, why the heck you wanna watch her TV show? I watched an interview of hers once on CNA.

Let's put it this way: Photoshop really works miracles. Even that thick pancake of makeup on her face can't disguise her bad complexion. And she speaks terribly. Her English really isn't great at all. Trust me, you DON'T want to watch and hear her.

there is a limit. there is a line. once you cross that, what happens to basic human decency and respect??

saddening.

and the thing is, i respect her views and her right to say whatever she wants on her own blog. i read her blog and most of the time, she's pretty alright. but this one just takes the cake. too much, too far.

Friday, 17 June 2005 12:03 pm
Well at least you are very truthful in regretting your words or posts... As for her, she's someone who deletes bad comments and posts that might generate too much negativity. Especially when she disabled her commenting link for that particular post. Shit man. Her appearance on Channel U had smeared its image. OH NO! It's even worse than Steven Lim and his yellow trunks. And frankly speaking, you are not wrong in what you've said, and you have every right to. So let Bandung Vader dig her own grave. Chill :D

we practise self-contradiction more often than we realise. don't beat yourself too much yah. i'm a fellow crusader of not judging people too fast, but if something managed to piss u off, something is probably already wrong with it.

i've read tt post by her too and well, to put things simply, i have read better blog entries commenting about this issue. are they being tomorrowed?

whateverstreet: Imagine this scenario. An obnoxious guy was taunting you to no end. You lost it and you punched his lights out.

Who is at fault? More often than not, it would be the one who was baited into striking that first blow.

Here's where I am right now. On one hand, I feel bad for having launched a scathing attack (eventhough I toned it down all the way from the first draft). On the other hand, I felt that I needed to take a stand.
