In The Land Of The Houyhnhnms Horses Speak

Hantu Laut

Blogger Hassan Sekodeng was today charged in the Session Court for intention to annoy.Charged under Section 233 1 a of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998 here.

Bloggers Beware! Anyone annoyed with your writing even in the absent of slander or libel can lodge a complaint and the action-oriented MCMC will deal with the matter expeditiously.

Blimey! Isn't that exactly what satire suppose to do, to ridicule, deride and or express contempt of human folly and vice through use of irony, sarcasm, wit, comic and whatever under your sleeves with intended means of provoking or preventing change.

Has TNB suffered great financial losses due to the satire that Sekodeng wrote more for fun and creativity than with intent of malice.

My uneducated guess is the scroll is only as good as the brain that produce it and one must not forget that even in the land of Academia there are many Yahoos.

As you may know even in the land of the Brobdingnag where giants towered to 72 feet Gulliver survived.

Ignorance kills.
