Singapore Blogosphere WAR – itsReal

Four days on and whilst the posts are less confrontational, the Singapore Blogosphere War between Ping.sg &  its community and banned members continues. What has this created for Singapore bloggers –

Most obvious is bloggers have something to blog about hehe, oops seriously it has put reputations on the line, depending on where you sit and who you believe and your own judgement, someone’s reputation has been tarnished… happy and conducive relationships have been severed, alternative options investigated, all in all a huge division which is remarkable considering where we are – Singapore !

All parties involved know each others mobile numbers, their IM’s yet everyone went public, as I did when I was banned from Ping.sg.

Why did I do so, to gather support for how angry i felt at the time for the banning. DK did the same I believe, his hourly scheduled posts went slightly over my exploits however he seems to now be backing down and his community seems to be telling him to chill… but WHY – he did nothing wrong !

I hate to repeat myself BUT at NEXUS 2007 Ping.sg announce it was an uncensored site for bloggers to ping their content – why introduce censorship in 2008 – why ban people for speaking there minds….why alienate strong supporters ?

What still remains is how will the community survive this WAR….

Does this make any sense at all, Ping.sg – itsReal

DK recalls all the events that was the beginnings of Ping.sg community in Singapore and now he is banned…

Still remember the first gathering at Pitstop Cafe.
The exposure during the Nexus event.
The meetup at Essential Brew.
The great gathering at Geek Terminal.
The fun we had at Far East Shopping Centre booth.
The ping.sg presence during blogout.
The geek terminal launch party and the mini birthday celebration after that.
The first anniversary party.
The funny advertisement we made for ping.sg.
The huge gathering at Ms Clarity Cafe.
The recording of blogbuzz.tv.
The wonderful Christmas gathering.

….maybe this is an engineered publicity stunt by Ping.sg – hmmm

On top of this Daphne – APLINK does not write rubbish…

Ping.sg Banning continues – itsReal

The BANNING on Ping.sg continues – another long time supporter of Ping.sg gets Banned – I am unsure as to the sense or reason for the Ban but it is becoming a Singapore catastrophe –  the Singapore blogging community whilst  growing , is TINY – alienating bloggers who have supported Ping.sg by contributing online and at physical events is truly astonishing. These supporters have used Word of Mouth to help spread Ping.sg through their own networks whether business of social, it was done freely in the past to grow the Ping.sg community.  Are these same supporters who helped grow Ping.sg not needed any longer, their unselfish raves to people they met about this cool community called Ping.sg a virtual waste of effort…the opportunity to take Ping.sg out of the RED might have been just around the corner. This latest Banning is a mystery….the practice must cease….APLINK

FU AP – itsReal

And i thought my issue with ping.sg was BIG hehe – check out this from BuzzMachine

I talked to a reporter this week about the embattled Associated Press and said three times that I didn’t want it to die. I might take that back.

The AP has filed truly noxious takedown notices against Rogers Cadenhead’s community-created Drudge Retort, arguing copyright violations for quotes from 33 to 79 words long.

here is mine

Associated Press Writer

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — First came the shock, then the grief. As dozens of people injured in a tornado at an Iowa Boy Scout camp recovered, families and friends tried to make sense of the deaths of four teenage Scouts who had gone to the elite camp to learn how to be leaders.

At a vigil held in an Omaha park Thursday night, people wiped tears from their eyes as Scout leaders weaved through the crowd asking, “Did you have any there?”

“It’s hard to wrap your brain around it,” scoutmaster Doug Rothgeb said earlier. “It’s something that as parents and scouters, we know the risks. We know the boys know what they’re doing. Those four boys ended up in the wrong spot at the wrong time. It’s all Mother Nature.”

Rothgeb’s troop spent Thursday in Omaha, comforting the family of 13-year-old Josh Fennen, a troop member who was killed in the twister. The tornado – which the National Weather Service said packed winds of around 145 mph – destroyed a building where the group had taken shelter.

life without ping.sg – itsReal

SAD – no more daily labouring to manually pinging my main blog (https://aplink.wordpress.com, wordpress don’t allow auto ping) to ping.sg – sometimes 3 times a day – i have been evicted from ping.sg, i have been excommunicated from ping.sg – i went to visit ping.sg to log on and that does not exist anymore either – the itsReal SAD part is that every time i pinged I got to see what the COMMUNITY at ping.sg was talking about and maybe even offer a view – now I do not see because I have been banned – no need to visit the site anymore which i was part of the community – to find out what real people are discussing – which is usually sex – but sometimes gems turn up on ping.sg – eviction is painful yet if you loose something other opportunities arise in OMG places like Digg.com or mixx.com – i will miss ping.sg but blogs can and do and have flourished on a global scale…..aplink

cutting yourself on Xanga its Disturbing – itsReal

This is REALLY off topic for me BUT I am shocked – i have just recently joined XANGA social media space and as I am interested in Alternative Medicine (for which my helpful site www.yourheartyourlife.com was recently banned from ping.sg, it is very helpful even if sponsored) I went searching for communities related to Health and Heart issues, I found some and joined – however in my Search I found on every single page multiple communities for those who are into cutting themselves – from my point of view this is an epidemic that most of us are NOT aware of and only thru social media does it show how many people are interested in or participating in the act of cutting themselves.

I have seen this issue raised in Oprah but only thru social media can you see how many people are affected by this addiction.

So how wide-spread is “cutting” from the Xanga site there appears to be thousands interested in the topic – does the addiction also happen in Asia – are there support systems in place to help people.

This is a disturbing post I am sorry BUT – itsReal
