Seditious Message On Personal Blog

In today’s edition of the Malay Mail:

Another blogger to lodge report
Halim Said
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 17: The ‘good man’ struck again, picking another blog this time.

Blogger Ameer Zulkifli, or Mack Zulkifli in the virtual world, received a seditious message in his blog, from ‘good man’ in a commentary forum column at 8.30am yesterday.

The Malay Mail had highlighted the frustration of a blogger, Peter Tan of over a message containing similar sentiments from an anonymous sender who used ‘good man’ as his handle.

The message content was both seditious and explicit.

Ameer yesterday told The Malay Mail his blog management software prompted him to approve the message but after reading it, he decided not to publish it on the weblog commentary post as it was seditious.

The sender also introduced himself as ‘good man’. Ameer said the writing style is similar to the person who posted the seditious message on blog.

He said this was not the first time he had received comments from ‘good man’ but the previous postings were not as disturbing as the present one.

“This time, he went too far as the content was insulting,” he said.

“A few blogs I visited had different seditious and malicious messages from the same nickname in the past two months.”

“However there are also other nicknames, to name a few, xxx pig no brain, malaysia has no future, kill all xxx pig and malaysia is no class.”

Ameer, 34, a management consultancy senior engagement director from Subang Jaya, said he is keeping the message as evidence and will lodge a police report today.

“I hope the police would nab this cyber criminal,” said Ameer who started his weblog last year.

Ameer called on responsible bloggers to notify the police of seditious messages posted in their blogs.

Excerpts of ‘good man’s’ postings:

It’s undeniable that xxxxx (deleted) are stupid, lazy and incapable. Why don’t they just humbly admit the facts and repent and learn from other races especially xxxxxxx?

Drug abuse, hate, incest, liberal extremism (culture of miniskirts and gay marriages), murder, racism, rape, religious fanaticism, parochialism, snatch theft, spoilt-bratty behaviour, tribalism, wife abuse, child abuse, all that is associated with the xxxxx race.

The xxxxx race is the biggest impediment towards building a truly Malaysian nation, and should be chucked into the dustbins of history.

(Peter Tan’s response)

Peter Tan says: This is an example of the blatant abuse of the freedom of expression. If one is brave enough to post such comments, one should also be brave enough to face the consequences of breaking the laws of the land.

The “xxxxxxxxxx” stole the land from Orang Asli. By right all of Malaysia should belong to them.

If (we) recall history, the current generation of xxxxxx came over from Sumatera, Jawa and the island around. If your thinking remains the same, please go back to Indonesia where you can proudly call yourself xxxx there. – On Mack Zulkifli’s blog.

  1. Hi Peter,

    Just a suggestion. Since the boulder’s been pushed off the cliff with the lodging of a report, you might want to delete the offensive comment?

    Because having it there is pretty much publishing it, and that’s going to make you liable as well, if Good Man is successfully prosecuted (and sorry, I think reality is that he won’t be). Especially when you’ve made it very clear that you yourself think it’s seditious.

    The harm of having any reader drop in and read it (thereby succesfully propagating the dissemination of the seditious sentiment) is so very forseeable, but you continue to publish. You’d easily be pinned for recklessness at the very least.
