"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"In the end, everything is a gag." - Charlie Chaplin

***

By Randy Cassingham, author of This Is True:

Yahoo Debacle Update

"For anyone to use the "This is Spam" button on mail they asked to get is despicable: such people are LYING and accusing responsible e-mailers of a crime. In extreme cases, like what happened to TRUE, they are depriving others of getting the mail they really do want. They cry and whine about how bad it is to get spam ...and then they falsely accuse the good guys of doing it. In my book, falsely accusing someone of spamming is worse than spamming. It's no wonder virtually all of the good e-mail newsletters long ago died off: they were not only not supported by their readers, they were actively interfered with. And what a shame for such good newsletters to have gone away! You say you want e-mailers to act responsibly? That's certainly reasonable -- but only as long as you are responsible too."

For someone whose newsletter is, in part, about laughing at people who are self-righteous and/or take things too seriously, it is ironic that he often displays these same characteristics.

This is one of the reasons I didn't renew my Premium subscription (and won't be doing so for the foreseeable future).
