While i was at the Marriott all morning, staring out the windows wondering when the bomb was going to go off, the little wife got a call from the JP wanting to do some kind of survey with all subscibers. My wife told them that we've never received it despite promises of it back in April, that sorta threw them for a loop and they didn't ask any of the survey questions....

here's an explanation for the notice given by a JP employee:
Quote:
Iya.. Ini dikeluarin soalnya sejak The Point terbit, banyak yg diedarin
dengan cara diselipin didalam koran TJP, jadi kesannya sodaranya TJP..(dan
juga karena banyak eks TJP yg pindah ke The Point)... Trus juga banyak yg
langganan, koran TJP nya dituker jadi The Point
loosely translated: "yes, this [the notice] was issued because ever since The Point was published, many [copies of The Point] have been distributed by inserting them into The Jakarta Post newspaper, giving the impression that [The Point] is related to The Jakarta Post... (and also because many ex-Jakarta Post employees have moved to The Point). furthermore, there have also been many subscribers whose copy of The Jakarta Post has been substituted with The Point"

Ah, the hazards of going head-to-head with competitors in Indonesia.

But what exactly is meant by... "because many ex-JP employees have moved to the Point" Unless he/she is talking about distribution/circulation people...???

don't know. her indonesian was rather syncopated. i doubt that any distribution or circulation people have moved from JP, but who knows? certainly many former editors and journalists seemed to have joined with The Point.

i reallly just don't see this being plausible. TP at the moment is be extremely limited in its distrubution, and as you know, it's very difficult to obtain a copy. they are doing this deliberately, i feel, to sort out editorial and distribution bugs.

Hi Ku,

Thanks for the explanation. I was reading it this morning when I was about to put it on my boss's table. I was wondering why JP printed out such announcement. Luckily, JP always come to office regularly.
