Frequent commenter LOL had asked, “Kenapa Poll tu pilihan yang ada ‘Yes’ dan ‘Ya’… bukan ‘Yes’ dan ‘No’?” (see below)
I replied him, “Respondent boleh pilih ‘Yes’ atau pilih ‘Ya’.”
Polling is still open, by the way, for you to register your complaint against the PM’s consultants.
Some readers however might perhaps feel shortchanged to be constrained by two choices – picking between Yes and Ya – in our last survey. So to make it up to you for your disappointment, I’m creating a year-end finale poll where we have a generous array of 5 options! See bottom of page.
Alright, first lemme tell you what this poll is all about.
Selected below are some feedback given by The Malaysian Insider readers to Mujahid’s message of peace and harmony headlined ‘Accept diversity, discard racism, says PAS MP on Christmas Day‘.
Intense debate ratings
You can see a commenter’s points in the green label (positive points) and red label (negative points). The commenter’s rating is scored when he is thumbed up or thumbed down by the other readers according to the service provider’s own special formula.
Take for example the guy with the handle ‘BlueInsideOut‘ (screenshot above). His rating is in the red at negative -158 points. We can thus take it that the TMI crowd does not like what it is that BlueInsideOut has to say. Not surprisingly, BlueInsideOut is also accused of being a “BN cybertrooper“.
The other commenters, e.g. ‘alaskancod’ (screenshot above), have got good ratings (145p) — an indication that such comments are well liked by their compatriots.
For instance, alaskancod’s comment that BlueInsideOut (76 Thumbs Down) is “not even good enough to stand in his [Mujahid’s] shadow. Go and cohabit with Katak and gang. abu” received 27 Thumbs Up (screenshot above).
The Thumbed Up comments
This trend is aligned to the TMI editorial promotion of the church-visiting PAS politicians.
Samples of Thumbed Up comments:
Conclusion: We can see that comments praising Mujahid receive a strong endorsement.
The Thumbed Down comments
Below are the Thumbed Down comments where we can see that those critical of Mujahid elicit a lot of condemnation.
The unpopular viewpoints come from commenters who already are marked with red label (negative) ratings.
To me BlueInsideOut makes a sensible argument – see above – but the TMI herd apparently does not think so.
One commenter even countered him, saying: “You’re smelly!” says a lump of cowdung”. Wow, what an impressive and convincing rebuttal by ‘wiseguy‘. And it most fittingly got 22 Thumbs Up.
Another reader provided an even more astounding rejoinder, saying Umno is “jealous” that PAS is more successful in fostering good race relations.
“The Rakyat understand it’s normal for umno to be jealous of PAS’ success in fostering inter-racial relation. This is opposite to umno’s divisive tactics.”
What kind of people are they?
They – the Dapsters and the evangelistas – totally dominate the public cyberspace. They’re so kiasu that they will not allow anybody else holding a contrary opinion to get a word in edgewise.
These DAP Supercyber Bullies will insult, vilify and lynch in addition to throwing all kinds of unsubstantiated allegations. In simple terms, they are pemfitnah.
Hence, non-Pakatan supporters can only play the Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down game in our own backyard.
So here is a final poll for the year where we too can click and register our vote.
