Yesterday's post, Walski's virgin attempt at blogging in Bahasa Malaysia, probably took most of you by surprise. It was an attempt to reach out and bitch-slap Utusan. Probably not a very successful one, though, Walski thinks. As for punishing Utusan, a reader has e-mailed Walski with a great idea which he will share with you in another post (waiting for said reader's green light to use the idea). So, stay tuned.
In any case, yesterday's post was also a baby step in realizing another idea - a blog in Bahasa.
Time, however, is not on Walski's side. And so, a great suggestion was offered by Michelle Yoon, author of the very excellent I Am Malaysian blog - why not do the Bahasa Malaysia blog as a collaboration? So, if anyone out there is interested in exploring this idea, drop Walski an e-mail, or comment, won't ya?
And now on to what Walski really wants to tell y'all about in this post - spam.
To be exact, spam for a good cause. Zorro alerted Walski to this excellent initiative - spam 4 e-mail addresses with e-mails calling for the release of Raja Petra Kamaruddin and all the ISA detainees. And which 4 recipients?
Namely, the Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar (aka Malaysia's Most Hated), the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, and last but not least, RPK, care of the Prisons Department.
Walski's done his part and sent an e-mail to all four. If you feel strongly about how evil the ISA is, you should, too.
(the spam count so far, and more, in the full post)
You can send either to any one of the 4 recipients individually, or a "send-all" single-button click. As of the time of this posting, the total count stands at 59,110 e-mails sent out. Individually, the tally is as follows:
- Syed Hamid Albar - 17,995
- Najib Tun Razak - 14,714
- Abdullah Ahmad Badawi - 13,799
- RPK (via the Prisons Dept) - 12,602
As Zorro has advised in his posting, if you do send the e-mail, send it to all four. You will need to put in your name, by the way. But nothing else.
The purpose? To show these fellers just how pissed off Malaysians really are with this piece of shit legislation, which effectively makes a mockery of Malaysia being a member of the UN Human Rights Council. Let's show 'em that We Will Not Forget...
