First, Malaysia-Today got DDOS-ed.

Now, another news portal (sic), Malaysia-Instinct, got blipped but I think it’s self-inflicted i.e. they deliberately closed the front-door and started changing the locks.


Well, the Sun’s TeRence Fernandez took offense with someone who is probably trying to impersonate him with the by-line ‘TeRRence Fernandez’ writing nasty stuff at this site which pretends to uphold journalistic standards. With other by-lines such as Satu Hala, Unta Belang and Lebah Kota interspersed with more ‘proper’ names, whomever it is that runs this site seems rather spaced-out. Or extremely arrogant.
