This posting is personal and for a trio of tiresome commenters – Setem, Kineas & Surrhead – who have been tying me up with their kiasu conversation threads.

Superheroes have got their alter egos.
Peter Parker is Spiderman, Bruce Wayne is Batman, Clark Kent is Superman, etc, etc … they’re comics. They do good. They save the world (or at least, the DC and Marvel universes).
Singer Lady Gaga created a male alter ego Jo Calderone but she’s just too weird.
Then you have this ex-NST journo who pretends in blogosphere that he’s a girly Japanese-style cartoon.
He whacks-whacks here, whacks-whacks there, here whack, there whack, everywhere and everybody he whack-whacks … even Marina Mahathir punya ketiak yang terdedah also he whacks and then he brags how that particular posting got his blog a lot of hits.
Being nasty about a certain “racist party”, about that party’s “despicable” leaders, about the “hateful” culture supposedly fanned by the majority community turning right wing is our wannabe Malaysian superhero’s idea of saving his country.
Spiderman, Batman, Superman are fantasy. Annie’s fan base is delusional.
It’s scary to know that Malaysia has people who are Annie’s type of mean-spirited commenters. They’re the same kind of people who slagged Joceline, who recently dissed Tunku Aziz and are presently spitting venom at Quentin Rozario.
Many writers everywhere use pen names. It’s understandable why some individuals choose to use pseudonyms. Nothing wrong with that.
There’s even an ‘official’ pseudonym – Alan Smithee – approved by the Director’s Guild of America for any “director who doesn’t want credit for a movie”, i.e. the guy disavows his film’s final cut because its production had slipped out of his creative control or for other reasons.
But in the case of Annie, his pseudonym is to deceive. The pseudonym ‘Annie’ sounds so nice like the cute cartoon when the sneaky bastard is as malicious as hell.
The RBA want to portray that I have the advantage over that Sweet, Young Thing (konon) with me being the older and more experienced female blogger.
But the reality is actually Annie the middle-aged Man bullying a woman, and his lynch mob collaborators endlessly screaming “bitch!” and spewing other vile, sexist remarks at me.
Gender and ethnic switch
Yeah it happens.
Artistes usually do this for practical purposes.
For example, Eleanor Robertson uses the name Nora Roberts for her romance novels. When she writes crime novels about the NYPD, however, she uses the gender neutral but masculine-sounding pseudonym J. D. Robb.
Famous women authors publishing under gender-neutral initials are J.K Rowling, P.D. James and C.J. Cherryh, among others.
Sergio Leone, the Italian director of the movie A Fistful of Dollars put his name as Bob Robertson in the American film credits.
Actor Charlie Sheen was born Carlos Estevez. His brother is fellow actor Emilio Estevez who opted to stick with his Spanish birth name.
There needn’t be anything particularly sinister about obscuring one’s gender and race except that in the case of Annie, his masquerade is shrouded in deceitful lies. Like when he conveniently deploys a suberfuge — inventing how a waiter addressed him as “Miss” (sneaky, huh).
As for his ethnic charade as a half Chinese, aside from the obvious purpose of political manipulation, thinking readers can figure out for themselves why Annie $uddenly decided to be lebih Cina dari Cina.
The sinister thing about Annie is that behind his lovey-dovey preaching, behind his thoughts and prayers, behind all the “nice” talk is cakap tak serupa bikin. He’s really a vicious person who is promoting fascism.
Annie is the spiritual leader of a Dapster mob.
His pro-DAP followers are online bullies similar to the virtual crowd described in the Facebook entry below about how the Islamophobes savaged a young Chinese convert in Isma.
