The Malaysian Nazis appear to have launched the first salvo in their war on local bloggers, led by none other than the sycophantic New Straits Times newspaper, a slimy disgrace to the Fourth Estate. The owners and instigators of this move against two Malaysian bloggers should be flogged with the rattan cane that nuts in that country like to use against Indonesians exploited as cheap labor by Malaysian big business.

Ever since Deputy Science and Technology Minister Kong Cho Ha reportedly worked out what the Internet was (an accident during a search for kiddy porn no doubt) and said Malaysia may introduce tough laws to control bloggers and prevent them from spreading "disharmony, chaos, seditious material and lies", Malaysia's blogging community have been put on notice.

Yesterday, AP wrote that Jeff Ooi (of Screenshots) and Ahirudin Attan (Rocky's Bru) were being sued for criticizing past and present editors. Why is it that the world around journalists (not that you can call these scum such) have the thinnest skin when it comes to criticism? They can give it out (though not in this case probably) but can't take it.

I have not seen the offending comments but I would urge these government puppets to step back and to think about what they are doing. If they win in court it is another blow for press freedom.
