You Are Responsible For What You Blog

True indeed, but how many of you bloggers out there are actually preaching it and taking "real" responsibility? And if you do, to what extent? How do you define responsible?

Definition from (for those who are lazy to click):
  1. Liable to be required to give account, as of one's actions or of the discharge of a duty or trust.
  2. Involving personal accountability or ability to act without guidance or superior authority: a responsible position within the firm.
  3. Being a source or cause.
  4. Able to make moral or rational decisions on one's own and therefore answerable for one's behavior.
  5. Able to be trusted or depended upon; reliable.
  6. Based on or characterized by good judgment or sound thinking: responsible journalism.
  7. Having the means to pay debts or fulfill obligations.
  8. Required to render account; answerable.
How many bloggers out there who swear and live by the above "code"? The numbers may be exceptionally few, though some may claim that they are very mindful of the public's reaction to the topics they blog about, especially those blogs with high traffic or readership.

Some go to the extent of removing "offensive" pictures/videos/audios/links after receiving negative/persuasive comments from the original post. Some will "password-protect" the post to ensure only his/her "supporters" or faithful readers will get to read the content. While some will just take the easy way out and remove the post altogether to avoid further controversy.

Are these actions so called "responsible blogging"? Maybe yes, to a certain extent, I hear you say. Well let's not forget that we also hear you shouting for freedom of speech.

What is your level of tolerance? How moderate is your moderation? How far will you go fighting for what you believe in?

The Vendettas are not journalists, aspiring politicians, celebrities or belong to so called "elite bloggers", but the moment we click the Publish Post button, we don't turn back.

Our Sex Video, Don't Download It

Seriously, will you click the download link/button even with the above warning? You must be kidding The Vendetta if you say you won't, unless of course, sex doesn't interest you. Bestiality? That's a different ball game eh.

Now, let's move on to

SpyMy has been flamed, labelled immature and lacking civic-mind for providing the video link
to one of the hottest news in the region. "SpyMy is an aggregator of news and stories you want to read, created specially for the South East Asia region." Thats explained at their website.

Aggregator of news and stories!
They aggregate news. Same goes for news on offensive cartoons/caricatures, Dick shooting his friend, Bigfoot, birdflu, etc.

Nevermind how the video was obtained, the girl is of legal age (if she was a minor, then distribution of such video will be seen as paedophiliac) i.e. an adult and acted in the video willingly. Surely, it wasn't made for general public viewing in the first place.
But the point is, if it is uploaded or made accessible on the internet, then the ball is in your court i.e. to view or not to view.

Lastly, there is no single ad in our blog and we are definitely not traffic whores.

What You're Doing, Dick?

Apparently not only The Vendetta has stop giving news, but the world too is lack of it. This is because for the past few days, the world news was all directed towards the quail hunting accident between Dick Cheeney and a lawyer.

The accident however reminded me of a quail hunting scene in the movie Wedding Crasher. In between contemplating on how to quail hunt when they do not even know how a quail looks like, Sack deliberately shoots Jeremy in the ass with a buckshot. Thus claiming it as an accident.

Maybe you know Dick saw the movie and decided to give it a shot too (pun not intended). Who says it ain't funny when you shoot another person and watch them peel off the bullet pullets one by one off their ass. Maybe.

Or perhaps they did not have a great field dog.

Festive Message

The Vendettas have gone on a long holiday break, retreating back to home town and some fun in the sun at the glorious white sandy beach, reminiscing our early fun-filled childhood days.

Returning to busy Kuala Lumpur, stark reality unfolds again.

Almost nobody is doing anything about what needs to be done. The responsibility to care?

Sure, there is a minority group of people involved with various charitable organisations or societies who contribute with sincere hearts. My utmost respect to them.

Please, fellow bloggers, instead of telling us:

1. how much food you ate;
2. money you won;
3. pictures you took while holidaying;
4. rounds of sex you had or girls/guys you scored;
5. whining why cartoons have such a huge impact on our lives nowadays; and etc..

we urge YOU to pause for a moment during this festive season, have a heart for the unfortunate ones, go out there and do something that will put a smile on their faces.

Good day!
