Riwayat Panglima Salleh
Oleh Salmah Sheikh Brix

Posting ini saya tujukan khas kepada Saudari Salmah Sheikh Brix. Pada 1976, beliau mengusahakan satu thesis berjodol Panglima Salleh “bagi memenuhi kehendak Jabatan Sejarah Universiti Malaya” untuk melayakkan beliau dinugerahi Ijazah Sarjana Muda Sastera B. A. (Hons).

Salmah adalah anak Batu Pahat, Johor. Kampungnya adalah di sekitar Bukit Pasir, Batu Pahat. Belian melanjutkan pelajaran Tingkatan Enam di Sekolah Dato’ Seri Amar Di Raja, Muar pada 1967-1968.

Antara rakan sedarjah Salmah adalah Allahyarham Prof. Ahmad Fauzi Basri, bekas Timbalan Naib Canselor Universiti Utara Malaysia, Yazmin Abdullah (Pegawai Khas Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz di MITI), Ayub Yamin (suami kpada Yazmin bekas pegawai di Dewan Bahasa) dan Ishak Amin (pegawai PTD yang pernah menjadi Pegawai Daerah di merata negeri dan kini mungkin telah bersara).

Saya juga melanjutkan pelajaran Tingkatan Enam di Muar. Tetapi, di High School Muar pada 1967-1968. Oleh kerana sekolah tersebut tidak mempunyai guru Sastera Melayu, rakan-rakan sedarjah dan saya sendiri terpaksa ke Sekolah Dato’ Seri Amar Di Raja untuk mempelajari subjek Sastera Melayu.

Menerusi kelas campuran inilah saya mengenali Fauzi, Ishak, Ayub, Yazmin dan Salmah. Saya rapat dengan Fauzi, Ishak dan Ayub. Tetapi, hubungan saya dengan Yazmin dan Salmah adalah formal dan setakat di bilik darjah sahaja.

Kalau Salmah atau sesiapa sahaja yang mengenali Salmah terbaca posting ini haraplah hubungi saya di e-mail mayaputra@gmail.com dengan seberapa segera. Ini kerana saya memerlukan keizinan Salmah untuk menyiarkan thesis beliau mengenai Panglima Salleh Selempang Merah di dalam blog ini dan blog www.mayaputera.blogspot.com – blog kelolaan saya yang khas mengenai isu Melayu dan Bumiputera.

Saya mempunyai satu salinan thesis Salmah yang diberikan kepada saya oleh Ray - seorang pustakawan di Perpustakaan Daerah Batu Pahat - pada akhir 80-an. Seandainya terdapat pihak yang agak ragu-ragu dengan hakikat ini, dedikasi Salmah dalam thesis berkenaan adalah seperti berikut:

“Untuk Abah yang tak sempat melihat kejayaanku, dan untuk Abang Mad yang tak jemu berusaha dan berkorban untuk kejayaan adik-adik”.

Saya memohon kepada Allah SWT semoga posting ini berjaya memenuhi maksudnya. Kalau tidak, kisah Panglima Salleh tulisan Salmah ini akan terus terepndam dalam lipatan sejarah bangsa tanpa dapat dikongsikan dengan generasi muda Melayu mutakhir – Ruhanie Ahmad

Terima kasih a voice (from the brick)... Dapat juga membaca ringkasan tentang Kiai Salleh... Namun saya juga tidak sabar ingin membaca tesis Pn. Salmah... Diharap Dato' dapat keizinan untuk disiarkan dalam blog ini...

Ayah saya juga sering bercerita tentang kehebatan Kiai Salleh semasa zaman komunis (kerana beliau pernah menetap di Parit Jawa semasa kecil)... Walau bagaimanapun ayah saya lahir pada 1952... Dan mendengar cerita dari arwah datuk saya...

Orang Melayu seperti Kiai Salleh ini masih ada di Malaysia... Mereka akan keluar di saat genting dan kritikal... Harap saat itu tidak akan berulang lagi...

Tiada kena mengena dgn. post Dato' ini... Tetapi kerana PRU telah kian hampir, saya mahu cut and paste artikel dr. RPK suatu masa dahulu... Mungkin agak panjang, tetapi memang berbaloi utk. dibaca...

"Not worth the paper it is written on"

Raja Petra Kamarudin

They say in legal circles that a verbal agreement is not worth the paper
it is written on. Islam says, if a man breaks his word up to three
times, then do not take him as a friend or comrade. Islamic scholar or
ulamak Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, also currently Prime Minister of Malaysia,
gave his word and he broke it more than three times. Abdullah,
therefore, cannot be taken as a friend either in the western or Islamic
perspective.

And who did Abdullah give his word to? He gave it to previous Prime
Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad -- and of course to all Malaysians in
his 2004 Election Manifesto, which he has also broken. And what did he
promise Dr Mahathir? Many things, amongst which are that the Scenic or
'Crooked' Bridge would not be abandoned, the double tracking railway
line would be pursued, and the national car, Proton, would be supported
-- just to mention but three.

After Dr Mahathir announced his resignation to a shocked Umno General
Assembly in mid-2002, Abdullah and Dr Mahathir spent 15 months in
countless conferences to discuss what the former should and would do
when he finally takes over as Prime Minister in November 2003. Dr
Mahathir went into great detail and explained at length why he did what
he did in his 22 years as Malaysia's Prime Minister. Dr Mahathir had a
reason for his many perceived lunatic moves. Even Abdullah, who was his
deputy soon after Anwar Ibrahim's exit in September 1998, could not
understand everything that Dr Mahathir did. Now he does.

Abdullah sat there taking pages after pages of notes as Dr Mahathir gave
him a 15-month crash course in Mahanomics (synonymous with Reaganomics).
By the end of the 15-month training and orientation programme, Abdullah
understood fully what was in the head of that strange animal called
Mahathir. More importantly, Abdullah now saw the logic in Dr Mahathir's
every move and agreed that, though sometimes somewhat devious, many of
these moves were actually quite necessary in the pursuit of the bigger
objective.

Many of Dr Mahathir's moves would certainly appear loony to the
uninitiated. They would appear even stranger when viewed in the backdrop
of what was perceived as a failed plan. Dr Mahathir was a blunderer and
the many disasters he left as a legacy to Abdullah in November 2003 laid
testimony to this. But Abdullah knew they were no disasters. He did not
know earlier of course. But 15 months of sitting in front of Dr Mahathir
and taking notes as the Prime Minister imparted his innermost thoughts
left Abdullah with no doubts that this old man knew what he was up to
and these moves could only be labelled as brilliant.

Take the Scenic or 'Crooked' Bridge as one example. No one would
disagree if we were to say that this is the most stupid idea yet to come
out of Dr Mahathir's mind. Why build half a bridge? Why build such a
silly looking bridge that would wind its way around because it had to
join the Causeway halfway across the Straits of Johor or Tebrau Straits?

If they built a full bridge, then the bridge could be built straight,
lower and shorter at maybe almost the same cost as half a bridge. But
now they are building half a bridge, so it has to be crooked and higher
-- and the cost for half a bridge is not half the cost of a full,
straight bridge. But they can't build a straight or full bridge because
Singapore will not allow their half of the Causeway to be demolished and
they are not interested in building the other half of the bridge on
their side or within their territorial waters.

Singapore could of course agree to join Malaysia in this bridge project
and agree to the Causeway being demolished and a full, straight bridge
be built to replace the Causeway. But Singapore wanted the bridge to be
packaged with a lot of other goodies, all in Singapore's favour. These
goodies would be like throwing in the supply of sand, allowing Singapore
Air Force planes more flights over Malaysian air space, plus a re-look
at the water agreement.

Dr Mahathir did not agree to this. He would not package the bridge with
all these other issues and he wanted each issue to be an issue by itself
and to be negotiated separately and on its own merits. Dr Mahathir was
no fool. He knew if he rejected Singapore's demand for a packaged deal,
then Singapore would not agree to the bridge. Malaysia could go on with
the bridge if it wanted, but it can only build a bridge on Malaysia's
side, not on Singapore's side. Therefore it would have to be a
silly-looking half-bridge that would need to be highly elevated and
winding.

That was exactly what Dr Mahathir wanted. He wanted Singapore to reject
the full, straight bridge idea and stipulate that Malaysia can only
build half a bridge if it still insisted on proceeding with the plan. Dr
Mahathir did not want a full bridge. He wanted a half-bridge. A full
bridge would mean it would have to be straight and therefore low. A
half-bridge would force the bridge to curve and therefore it would have
to be built highly elevated.

What Dr Mahathir really wanted is the space beneath the bridge which a
full bridge would not offer while a half-bridge would. And why did he
want this space? He wanted it because he wanted large container ships
and oil tankers to be able to sail under the bridge.

The Straits of Melaka is one of the busiest sea lanes in the world. But
ships plying the Straits cannot reach Johor Port unless they sail around
Singapore. So they would rather stop at the Port of Singapore instead of
coming to Johor. Even ships carrying goods bound for Malaysia would
rather stop at Singapore for transhipment to Malaysia rather than sail
to Malaysia. Once there is a highly elevated bridge, then the ships can
bypass Singapore and come straight to Malaysia.

In short, a highly elevated 'crooked' bridge would boost the viability
of Johor Port and pose a serious threat to the Port of Singapore. To be
more dramatic, the bridge could actually kill the Port of Singapore and
make Johor Port the new centre for imports to and exports from Malaysia
-- plus for those Indonesian importers and exporters as well who
currently would rather use Singapore than sail the extra distance around
Singapore to come to Johor.

That was what Dr Mahathir really wanted. He was not actually interested
in the bridge. He was more interested in Malaysia overtaking Singapore
in the port business. And the crooked, high, half-bridge would be able
to achieve this. A straight, low, full bridge would not. Dr Mahathir
very cleverly manoeuvred so that Singapore would disagree with the full
bridge and would instead ask Malaysia to proceed with half a bridge.
Once they said that, Dr Mahathir got them exactly where he wanted them.
The half-bridge is Singapore's idea, not Dr Mahathir's, so Singapore
cannot now turn around and say that they had been tricked and the bridge
was merely a Red Herring and that the real motive was to outdo the Port
of Singapore.

Somehow, along the way, Malaysia's Foreign Minister packaged the supply
of sand and more SAF flights over Malaysian air space in the bridge
deal. Dr Mahathir never agreed to this. But Abdullah did for reasons
known only to himself and his son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin. The sand
would of course come from Johor and those individuals who will be
awarded the contract to supply sand to Singapore are family members of
those involved in the decision-making process at the very top echelons
of power -- those walking in the corridors of power. The supply of sand
is not a government effort but a private arrangement. What is even more
perturbing to Dr Mahathir is that Singapore did not demand that the
supply of sand be included in the deal. This idea came from Malaysia. It
was Malaysia that proposed it, not Singapore that demanded it.

When the Johor Menteri Besar found out about the supply of sand
arrangement he was outraged. Dr Mahathir had banned the export of sand
back in 1997 and Johor was quite happy with this as the sand was coming
from Johor and it is the politicians and their cronies who are making
hundreds of millions out of it. For the first time in his life this very
polished man who always has a sweet smile for anyone he encounters lost
his cool. He never raises his voice, especially to the Prime Minister.
But that day he did and he told the Prime Minister that Umno Johor will
strongly oppose any Johor sand being sold to Singapore. Even the palace
got into the act and there was a danger of another Constitutional Crisis
erupting.

In short, there was a mutiny and Johor was in revolt. A crisis never
before seen in Malaysian history was about to explode. This was a
state-federal conflict in the making. Abdullah had blundered big time.
He had agreed that the bridge would include the supply of sand to
Singapore. Now Johor, the source of the sand, put its foot down and
threatened to resist at whatever cost, and Johor can be as independent
as Kelantan if it so wishes. They would also reveal the names of all
those who stand to benefit from this supply of sand; family members of
those at the very top of the Abdullah administration. If you think the
Mahathir-Anwar crisis was exciting, the supply of sand to Singapore
would dwarf this by far.

Two days later, Abdullah announced that the bridge project would be
aborted, after starting work on it (and incurring a liability of RM100
million). Three weeks before that, Parliament had reiterated the bridge
project would go on and the Minister of Works himself assured Parliament
that this would be so. But now it was off. They would not be proceeding
with the bridge. They could not proceed with it. To proceed with it
would mean they have to supply sand to Singapore. And this would create
a massive crisis between the federal government and the Johor state
government. The only way out of the supply of sand commitment would be
to abort the bridge project. No bridge, no sand, and no federal
government-Johor state government crisis, plain and simple.

But it is out of the frying pan, into the fire. Without the bridge,
there would be no way ships could sail to Johor Port through the Straits
and the Port of Singapore would continue to dominate this region. Dr
Mahathir's plan to build up Johor Port and challenge Singapore's
dominance was thwarted. And it was thwarted by no other than his
successor who had promised him that the bridge would go on. And it was
thwarted because some greedy people in the decision-making team had
tried to get rich quick through selling sand to Singapore by packaging
the sand supply deal in the bridge proposal.

Dr Mahathir was hopping mad. Abdullah had made a big booboo, and to get
out of this booboo he cancelled the bridge project. Abdullah was trying
to save his arse. But in doing so he sacrificed Malaysia. Johor Port
would now have to remain as pathetic as it has always been. And the Port
of Singapore would remain the big wheel of this region. Flushed down the
toilet is Dr Mahathir's plan for overtaking Singapore. And, to make it
worse, Abdullah had promised Dr Mahathir the bridge would go on. And he
understood fully well why it must. And he realised that the bridge was
for the good of Malaysia's commerce. But saving his arse was his first
priority. Saving Johor Port has to come second.

That is the story of the 'Crooked' Bridge. There are many other stories
such as about the double tracking railway line, the national car, and
more. Suffice to say, the double tracking railway line had the same
objective as the 'Crooked' Bridge; in that Malaysia's commerce would
improve and Singapore's dominance in the region would be given a serious
challenge. But Abdullah aborted this as well.

The double tracking railway line was actually the first move. Once the
double tracking was done, then the high speed train was supposed to
follow. Imagine the day when one could live in a cheaper town like Ipoh
where property prices are half those in the big city, yet work in Kuala
Lumpur -- and the time it takes to get to work from Ipoh would be faster
than driving from Subang Jaya to Kuala Lumpur today. The small towns
would boom and development would be spread out throughout the country
instead of concentrated in a few key areas like it is today. But that
too now remains just a dream.

The MV Agusta matter is another issue. Dr Mahathir was going to use MV
Agusta to develop a peoples' car (volks wagen) that could be marketed
for as low as RM10,000, or less. MV Agusta had the technology to do this
and the cost to buy MV Agusta, in spite of it debts, was still lower
than embarking on this project doing your own R&D from scratch. R&D
costs billions of Ringgit and to develop a car from scratch would not
only cost more but would be time consuming as well. Even if you are
prepared to pay the higher cost, the time would take too long. MV Agusta
was a short cut and at a cheaper price on top of that.

But MV Agusta was sold off for RM4 and Dr Mahathir's RM10,000 peoples'
car went down the toilet, just like all the others. In fact, the sale of
MV Agusta itself raises other questions. How did they decide who to sell
it to and do those in the decision-making process have an interest in
the company that bought MV Agusta? (Which raises the issue of conflict
of interest.) Dr Mahathir knows the real story, as he does about who
those sand suppliers are, but he is not revealing all, at least not just
yet.

It is not that Abdullah is ignorant about all this. He knows the agenda
behind the 'Crooked' Bridge, double tracking railway line, MV Agusta,
and much more. He knows that all these are mere catalysts for bigger
things. And he agreed that these are necessary for the future of the
country. Yet he dismantled them one by one just to make it appear like
Dr Mahathir is stupid and that all his ideas are stupid. It is all about
politics and of trying to undermine Dr Mahathir. And what better way to
do this than to dismantle what Dr Mahathir started and give the
impression that the previous Prime Minister was a nut case. So the
country suffers. So what? That is the small picture. The big picture is:
Dr Mahathir is embarrassed.

The Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is another thing that Dr Mahathir was and
still is against. All those years he was prime minister he resisted the
FTA. Then, late last year, Abdullah secretly signed the FTA with Japan
whereby Japanese automobiles would have free access to the Malaysian
market while Malaysian vegetables would have free access to the Japanese
market. Malaysian vegetables? What vegetables do we have that we can
export to Japan? We do not even grow enough for our own consumption and
almost everything we eat needs to be supplemented with imports. Anyway,
do the Japanese eat our vegetables? Abdullah might as well have signed
an FTA with Canada whereby we export ice cubes to the Eskimos.

The FTA Abdullah signed with Japan was so confidential that even the
Cabinet did not know about it until Abdullah informed its members later,
after it had been signed. The Cabinet members were shocked, but by then
it was too late to do anything about it. And how is Proton going to
survive once Japanese cars get free access to the Malaysian market when
even Europe and the United States can't compete with them?

Proton is a dead man walking. Its days are numbered and it will be just
a matter of time when the national car folds. As the Malays would say:
siap kain kapan (prepare the funeral shroud).

Now the United States also wants the FTA with Malaysia signed and the
US-Malaysia FTA would open all government contracts and procurement to
US companies. That is the end of the New Economic Policy. The days of
the Bumiputera businessmen are numbered. Malays will have to revert to
becoming clerks and drivers again.

Dr Mahathir is beginning to doubt whether Abdullah knows what he is
doing. As far as Dr Mahathir is concerned, whatever he did, he did with
the interest of the nation at heart. But Abdullah's moves, the way Dr
Mahathir sees it, are moves of a traitor who does not care about the
country's interest. Dr Mahathir is quite prepared to allow Abdullah to
run this country the way he, as Prime Minister, sees fit. But Dr
Mahathir will not remain silent and allow this state of affairs to
continue if, as he put it, Malaysia's sovereignty is jeopardised. Dr
Mahathir would rather take on Abdullah than allow the man to destroy
this country. Not just Dr Mahathir, but many Umno veterans as well
believe that power in the hands of Abdullah is like giving a flower to a
monkey. Monkeys do not appreciate the beauty of flowers.

: Bloggers' Ethics

Datuk,

I have been posting comments on these blogs regulary for quiet sometimes now under my pseudonym Mika Angel-0.

What I would like to bring to your attention is that some of my postings on Gerbang Ruhanie (at kuda kepang.blogspot.com) - all those comments posted earlier than January 2007 - have been tampered with. 'Mika Angel-0 said' has been substituted with 'Anonymous said'.

I find this quite strange: why would anyone do that to one particular blogger's postings and not to the other few bloggers' postings. It beats me how one can do that.

The bigger issue here is not that but is Ruhanie Ahmad a trustworthy man? I have been pondering this question for quite sometimes.

Well, if I am very much mistaken this man hates Tun Mahathir but he pretends to admire him. This is just heresay.

I do hope you will reply to this one query - more on the fact of his rapport with Tun Mahathir; but please delete this posting to you, Datuk.

If I am right of my suspicions of him - ie that he is untrustworthy - just say That is Dumb of you Red84; and if I am wrong - Dumber still.

Terima Kasih.

Bush Hubungi PM
Bincang Pergolakan
Politik Lubnan

WASHINGTON: Presiden Amerika Syarikat, George W Bush dan Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi membincangkan perkembangan terbaru di Lubnan yang menghadapi masalah politik berikutan usaha pembangkang menjatuhkan pentadbiran pimpinan Perdana Menteri, Fuad Siniora.

Dalam perbualan mereka menerusi telefon itu, Bush menyatakan kebimbangan besar kepada Perdana Menteri terhadap dakwaan bahawa Iran dan Syria campur tangan di Lubnan, kata Rumah Putih, semalam.

“Presiden menyuarakan rasa bimbang berhubung campur tangan Iran dan Syria di Lubnan,” kata jurucakap Rumah Putih, Tony Fratto kepada wartawan di sini.

Ia berikutan tindakan pergerakan Hizbullah yang mendapat sokongan Syria dan Iran, mengadakan bantahan besar-besaran baru-baru ini bagi menuntut kerajaan Siniora bersetuju memberi hak bersuara lebih besar kepada masyarakat Syiah dan sekutu Kristiannya di Lubnan.

Katanya lagi, dua pemimpin itu turut membincangkan pelbagai perkara ini mengenai perkembangan di Asia Barat dan mengulangi komitmen mengambil langkah menggerakkan usaha keamanan antara Israel dan Palestin berdasarkan konsep dua negara berjiran yang demokratik.

Abdullah memberi pandangan selaku pengerusi Pertubuhan Persidangan Islam (OIC) yang mempunyai 57 negara anggota.

Dua pemimpin itu juga membincangkan isu program nuklear Iran, kata Fratto tanpa memberi penerangan lebih jelas butir perbincangan.

Kesatuan Eropah (EU) turut dilaporkan menuduh Syria dan Iran menjejaskan kestabilan Asia Barat.

EU mendakwa, rantau itu tergugat kerana campur tangan Syria di Lubnan manakala Iran pula meneruskan program nuklear. – AFP/Reuters

TOLONG FIKIRKAN APA SUDAH JADI DENGAN IMAM HADARI INI.. MINTA MENANTUNYA CARIKAN CALON. BUAT MALU ORANG MELAYU MALAYSIA SAJA.


Pusat Bandar, Parit Buntar – “ Malunya ada Perdana Menteri macam ni”. Itulah jawapan yang diberi oleh beberapa orang yang ditemui di sini, bagi mengulas kehadiran Pak Lah dalam Anugerah Filem India Global-Gifa di ibu kota baru-baru ini. Lebih memalukan lagi apabila Pak Lah sebagai Perdana Menteri negara Islam Hadhari menyampaikan anugerah kepada Bipasha Pasu artis simbol seks Bollywood nombor 1 di India yang memenangi kategori Artis Wanita Terbaik.

Lebih menyedihkan kita, Pak Lah yang berjawatan Perdana Menteri sebuah negara yang merdeka berjalan keseorangan tanpa pengiring ke atas pentas semasa menyampaikan anugerah ini. Bayangkanlah betapa Perdana Menteri diperlaku sebegini dalam negara sendiri di majlis yang meraikan artis luar bukan artis tanahair.

Seorang pemerhati politik di sini berpendapat, Pak Lah sepatutnya tidak menghadiri program sebegini bagi menjaga maruahnya sebagai Perdana Menteri. Cukuplah Rosmah Mansor isteri TPM yang juga Penaung Gifa beria-ria meraikan artis-artis Bollywood. Cukuplah Menteri-Menteri melepaskan keinginan berlawan bola dengan artis-artis Bollywood. Perdana Menteri tak perlulah ikut sama macam mereka.

Apa yang menghairankan kita di manakah penasihat-penasihat Perdana Menteri ?. Berilah nasihat kepada Pak Lah mana majlis yang seorang Perdana Menteri boleh pergi dan mana majlis yang seorang Perdana Menteri tak perlu pergi. Sebagaimana dimaklumi, artis-artis Bollywood ini terkenal dengan kesombongannya. Justeru, mengapakah terlampau berlebihan meraikan mereka sehingga Perdana Menteri pun turut sama meraikannya.

Memetik kata-kata seorang penduduk yang ditemui, “ artis-artis Bollywood pun terkejut tengok pemimpin nombor 1 negara kita boleh datang ke majlis depa. Kat negara lain tak pernah depa tengok macam tu. Nampak macam hebat sangat la depa

Bung Mika"

Terima kasih.

Allow me to re-emphasize here that I am one the local bloggers that strongly propagate and advocate cyber freedom. I am also very concern about cyber ethics.

That being the case, your complaint(s) against me posted through Datuk A Kadir Jasin's blog which you re-posted them here, really come as a big suprise to me.

I remember the first time I spotted your name and comments on my blogs - all blogs that I have on this blogsphere - was when you said something to tease me why should I choose the name kuda kepang. Then, I responded by having a special post about you. Before that, I don't know you do exist in this blogpshere.

After reading your complaints yesterday and today - 31.5.7 - I remember what happened to you coincided with the period when I myself was facing cyber attacks from unknown parties. If you care to trace my older postings, you can verify that I was facing series of attacks - through viruses of course - to the extent I have to reconfigure my computer. And it took me almost 10 days to figure out what went wrong. The result of diagnosis conducted by ICT professionals found out that I was being attacked by more than a dozen viruses. About six of them already controlled my postings and comments. The rest were aimed to make surfers difficult to access my blogs. They practically took charge of my computer's system administrator.

I therefore feel sorry that your postings, Bung Mika, are among the victims of those attacks.

I noticed that even now I found out that some postings in my blogs are being deleted by the system administrator. For sure, I am not the system administrator.

I tell you why. I am not a fully literate ICT guy. I only know how to write and post my articles. I only learn to interact with you and other surfers since about three months ago. That was after some friends reminded me that I should interect with you all. They were the ones who taught me how. Beyond that, I do not know anything. I don't even know how to correct my own comments to the extent there were time I have to make a fresh comment just to correct one silly spelling mistake. I think you did notice that don't you?

So, Bung Mika, please accept this explaination. You don't want me to say DEMI ALLAH I don't do what you perceived me of doing - deleting your comments and changing your identity from MIKA to ANONYMOUS.

I know you were angry. I will feel the same if I am being treated like that. But, this is the problem we bloggers, may be bloggers like me only, are facing. There are elements out there who tampered with my own blogs. Yes, I will include this in my thesis about blogging in Malaysia. Thank you to you for highlighting this problem, though in an indirect manner.

About me and TDM. I just want to tell you that the market and gossips might have moulded your perception about me on TDM. For your records I have always admired TDM from my student days in 1969 until today. TDM knows that. I don't want to say more than this. Just enough for me to let you know that your perception is not true.

Sekian sahaja dari saya kali ini Bung Mika. If I can get a favour from you, please alert me when you encounter the same problems "related to cyber ethics in blogging" in the nearst future. This message too is meant for other regular visitors to all my blogs.

Thank you and salam takzim,
