Miss Universe scandals

As the Miss Universe Contest is coming up very soon. More and more scandals has been out, first with the pictures of the girls in bikinis with Wat Arun as a background, then came the claim that Miss Vietnam was (or is) a fake.

As a media, (who don’t really see the importance of the news at all) I just think that they need a little bit of scandals to boost the public interest up. Afterall, where would the pictures come from, if not from the comittee itself. I asked around amongst my friends and they all said the same thing. Maybe this is due to the fact that there are too many tickets leftovers?

Now that the committee doesn’t allow any TV media to follow them around, my friends from AP are resigned from this job. Bless them.

    I’ve requested the admin to remove my name, twice, because I have became too busy and find it little difficult to write to the theme here. I guess my name still there means Sean is busy too.

    And no, I don’t need any Google juice from metblog. And looking at how they use javascript to link to author’s site, you will see that we ain’t geting any. Thanks for being an ass, though.

    Just checked and it seems my account was indeed removed, but somehow not my name from the author list.

    It took them forever to remove my name when I quit. Alternatively, it took them 2 days to remove Baba’s when she quit! But they did remove logins asap.

    BTW, Google Juice. Great phrase, Chris :)

    looks like this site died after that guy thought the rules didn’t apply to him and started talking about shit he shouldn’t have. way to go ben harris.

    I guess you are referring to me ‘that guy.’ this site isn’t dead, its just 99% of us have far more pressing obligations to handle (such as living a life, providing for a family, or following our dreams), besides sitting here and thinking of something to write up, so we can entertain you. :)

    and the rules apply to me as well. if u don’t like what u read, no ones forcing you to read it. what? so i’m supposed to talk like you, walk like you, think like you, write like you? if i had to do that, i think i rather just die.

    the only reason i’m even wasting time to respond, is because its not Ben’s fault, we just don’t have time to write.

    have a nice day.

    No offence to anyone, but I thought “that guy” was referring to Ben, posting about the Thai Royalty?

    On a different subject, I think Bonifide is right: authors do have other lives that are more pressing that writing for metblog – and that is totally acceptable – but, IMHO, you shouldn’t sign up, or should leave, if that is the case.

    This is one of the reasons *I* left (and only one of many) because I didn’t feel good about taking the piss and saying I was an author when I barely posted anymore (though TBH it was more becuase I longer wanted to, than I didn’t have time or material – the outcome is the same).

    When you signed up, after all, you agreed to the proposed three posts a week that all metblogs authors, the world over, attempt to keep to. It is up to the captain to remind people of this and, if they do not keep at least some standards of routine posting going, ask if they really, really, want to actually be a part of this for the good of metblog, as opposed for the good of themselves.

    Just my thoughts as an ex-author and ex-captain of the Bangkok Metblog.

    Unfortunately, ‘that guy’ (or is it ‘tha unknown soldier’?) didn’t leave an email address so I’m unable to invite him to contribute in the absence of others doing so.

    Re the names on the left: I’ve also requested the inactive ones be removed and it seems they have after looking just now. We’re looking rather bare now.

    Hold on, what’s this got to do with Miss Universe Scandals?!?

    So, Miss Canada won, huh? The whole thing is such a farce!

    I was rooting for Miss Ethiopia. God help that a black person might win! (says he who has no idea if a black person has ever won)
