Posting Style

Looks like the boss doesn't like my posting style, so I guess I have to be nicer :D

I edited the post below but you can view the old post here.

Alright about using real names in forum, some people are known better with their nicknames, like Elly or Fido. So I guess these are exceptions. But I'll try to make them change to their real names. Happy now, Anonymous?

Your edited post defintely sounds much nicer. I appreciate the fact that you made available the old post too. Some people just change stuffs and do not own up to what they said. I think the main problem with the forum is that there are indeed people who use nicknames to start with and it's hard to blame the anonymous from being anonymous although there's a rule that requires the use of actual names. That said, to make life easier, we should all use real names from now on.

it is very encouraging to see nice language style delivered in the main page while barbaric "original feedback" tucked away in the comments section.

Hate to sound mak-like, but you have to be when saying the obvious.

Official blog = could also be perused by sponsors, job recruiters, other students organizations, future students, mak bapak students. And who knows FBI/CIA pun tgk bende alah ni. Yes, the main audience are MASA members, but don't be surprised if employers turn away from you just by looking at your online attitude.

And I hope the three Firdauses would agree if we are exempted from the real name rule, or we could be known as Firdaus Tarmizi (pedot), Firdaus Ngadi(Fred/Fido Kecik) and Firdaus Hisham (Fido Besar). Our nickname culture is too prevalent anyway to be set aside just for PC. Maybe just provide extra info in your profile so people could korek a bit, no?

Elly said...

farhan said...

Haha thanks people. I just wanted to be different with my posting style, instead of the mundane, academic style of posting. Heh...

jamil, i thought it might help just a bit, that the official blog is quality-controlled, and not hyprocrite. but obviously i was wrong. i forgot to consider the fact that many other people in masa are also crude can't argue without resorting to calling names. yes, i am aware too that there are ones who are more reasonable like kwok mun and pedot.

Jamil said...

anonymous, i am just voicing out my opinions too just like everyone else. your use of words when pointing out about the original posting could have been a little more selective, something like:

"here's a suggestion. can the mod please remove the original posting. i think that it is best if the old comments are removed altogether so that outside readers wont have a bad impression of our happier-than-happy community here un urbana-champaign"

but instead you chose to add a little spice of sarcastic tonage that serves a purpose of only adding a little fuel to the flame. and people like me loves to add more fuel when the flame becomes bigger. i bet we are all better off with a little less sarcasm eh? malaysia boleh.

Who is Kwok Mun, may I ask?

Kwok Mun said...

I am a new member.

khadijah or kat said...

I wonder if I should go by khadijah or not; sometimes when I go by my real name at work, my-coworkers can't tell.
What is a name anyway? I thought that a name is a symbol attached to oneself to make yourself recognized by others. In that sense, I have many names. In the MASA community and university in general, I am comfortable with just Kat.

Give me link to SEO software (promotion, advertisement, etc.). I'm need it to promote my new e-shop.
Thanks.
