Sri Lanka: Is popularity evil?

Why do bloggers get cynical about the motives of other bloggers? A Voice in Colombo on why we blog. “What can I gain by creating a popularity for a nickname like Voice in Colombo? Contest to become the next Mayor of Colombo? (If I wanted that, I would start driving a taxi, rather than blogging) These comments lead me to make a post on the subject “Why Do People really blog?””

    SL the graveyard for Tamils and other minorities had become a Pariah state by popular choice!! Via demon o’ crazy (democracy) promoted, practiced and upheld by the lunatics and morons.
    When the rest of the world yearns to move forward and survive SL, Somalia, Gaza ( Palestine), Bush, Blair, Howard (war criminals) and Raja puck the SL joker want to smoke grass and go on a trip (fly) and listen to Led Zeppelin’s – Dazed and Confused. Who cares? Another moron will come next to rule SL. Shalom.
