Where forth art thou?: Just so we are clear

Just so we are clear

*Update: Obviously xiaxue is once again ABUSING her access to a larger audience to poison the well and cast doubt on the credibility of this site and any others that hold views opposing to hers. I trust that regular readers of this site are able to figure out the truth. My condolences to those who have already been brain-washed beyond repair.

The current situation is that wendy cheng is alleging that the email forwarded to me by Ethan, kingoftears@gmail.com, is fake because Kimage's Director, Monica, did not respond to this email in THAT way. I have added a disclaimer to the entry containing the screenshot of the email. In case you guys are lazy to click on the link or scroll down, I will reproduce it in this entry:

"Disclaimer: Please read the contents of this entry carefully. The following mail was forwarded to me by one of the readers of this site, whose email address is kingoftears@gmail.com. He had expressed concern to kimage through enquiry@kimage.com.sg (NOT the direct mail to Kimage's Director, Monica) about xiaxue being their spokeswoman. Nobody said that the reply was from Kimage's Director, Monica. To check the authencity of the email and to check which employee in Kimage's customer support responded to this email, Kimage can refer to the reference number "Kimage Customer Services - Ref# 0005-25OCT05" and its subsequent logs. If Kimage can produce proof that the email was faked by kingoftears@gmail.com, you can contact me directly at xialanxue@gmail.com to politely ask me to remove the screenshot of the email from this entry."

Dude, already forwarded the screenshot of my copy of the email to you liao. I too sent it to Enquiry@Kimage.

Of course the director of the company would not be replying to those emails herself lah right!?

If Monica really has a problem, then maybe she should be talking to her staff that checks the emails at that address. Don't come and kaopeh-kaobu with us.

Unless of course XX is just making this all up. Hmmm. ;)

Oh no.. i am so upset Kimage is not droppping her.

king of tears said...

haha! obviously the director would not be replying to emails directed to the customer service department of Kimage, like what mooiness said.

it is not fake. the email is sitting prettily in my mailbox, and since there were no disclaimers in the email, i didn't see why it could not be made public.

i agree exactly with what mooiness said. it appears that kimage has some conflict on what they are telling xx and what they're telling us.

"If you are that herpes-infected, shiveled owner of that website, I suggest you take down the "letter" now, because Kimage can sue you, and will sue you. *Ahem*

what's shiveled?

simplesandra said...

You have to sympathise with Kimage and Voxy for getting caught in the crossfire. I'm sure they never expected (and certainly never wanted) to be part of blog war.

If they sponsor Wendy, they get stick from her critics; if they drop her, they get stick from her rabid fans. I certainly don't envy their position right now. =)

I guess asking Wendy NOT to put their banner up was some kind of compromise--though I'm not sure they knew Wendy was going to make that public as well on her blog.... When will the girl learn to shut up? =)

Thought her comments, about Voxy not happy with her use of vulgarities, was a wee bit sarcastic and uncalled for. Oh well, at least she left out her trademark "*roll eyes*".

simplesandra said...

Just to add, while Wendy should keep any correspondence with her sponsors off public view, so should her critics.

Either way it's bad publicity for these companies, and critics have every duty to help protect their image too, especially when they have the moral courage to drop Wendy.

mooiness said...

simplesandra: We do applaud Voxy and Kimage for their courage. The point with showing the emails is to correct what Wendy has said about the companies themselves.

But point graciously taken. :)

If endorsing XX is bringing them more sales and up their company's image positively, I'm sure two emails are not going to affect their decision to continue endorsing her.

I wonder if Voxy did not drop her, will she feel confined and restricted as she stated so or she will still be happy being their spokeperson? After reading what she wrote on Voxy, I'm sure other companies will think twice to offer her an endorsements.

Anonymous said...

To her, the company is betraying her for not continuing the endorsement deals. BUT she has never reflected if she has play a good role in keeping the company's image and promoting their sales. She is never in the wrong eh?

Anonymous said...

WC is such an hypocrite. In one of her earlier post, she claims that she is cutting down on vulgarities because the mother doesn't like it..blah..blah..blah... The actual fact is that she was concerned about the negative impact on her endorsements deals.

Now that the endorsements r gone, she is back to her old ways. What a liar.

It's very easy to flood someone's email. 1 day send about 100? they will soon get tired of it. XiaXue is not pretty. Her features are just average. And KM can get even better spokeperson than XiaXue.

Who here knows LB? Their shirts are just average. Oh well, Same as VX and KM. All does not make it famous. If not they would not find such a cheapskate.

Actually is very easy to get her down. Like many people said, she is a hypocrite and her income depends on her endorsements. So, email will affect her income. Just write more and more lor. Write not enough than use call lor. What you expect? Blogging can't earn much just by donations and endorsements you know. Somemore take photo also need $$. Think so easy meh. I think she will get bankkrupt soon. Touch wood. But serious.

WC's best bet is to marry a $$$ guy as her ticket out of "poverty". She shd work harder on that..instead of trying to write.

I think Joker Cheng is only allowing good comments about her to be seen in her most recent post. Think she is trying to 'bluff' her endorsers who will most likely be checking her website more frequently now into believing that pple actually love her.

She's really in a deluded state of mind.

What a weak line of defense. And to compare WC with the real celebs??!! Has Kenny Sia been taking drugs??

jean said...

If she is so famous why she just got interview only and not a contract to Mediacorp? And, Kenny Sia and the other bloggers are just acting pro of course not to XLX. I support her cause i am also anti xx.

And now is quite outdated to blog to get famous. Considering there is this looking for a star on channel 8 and the project superstar. All may be older than XX. But they got the X factor. Not all things come through writing. It's a talent and how you project your image. Notice those stars are well mannered and don't have hatred. Of course they have but they keep it inside and that makes them having multiples of fans. Scolding vulgarities all the time does not make a person with more fans although XX encounter lots of interesting stuff. And what Kenny Sia wrote, is crap. Yeah, scold more vulgarities. All hail the vulgarity princess. So what if she have left with maybe about 2 endorsements? Not on tv = not famous

kyra said...

kenny has no balls. xiaxue has no boobs. life is fair.

on a slightly serious note, has anyone seen such vehemence protest over kottke's patrons? no? but the guy left his job to be a full time blogger!

no one is jealous enough of kottke?? but his daily hits are more than xiaxue's, and he is an A list blogger!

food for thought indeed.

Heh, Kennysia is like xiaxues PR. He always defends her.

dawney said...

Why does Xiaxue want a premium haloscan account when she, apparently, can't afford it? Kenny Sia has to sponsor for her huh.

Look W.C., aka Water Closet, why get something you can't afford?

and oh yeah stop using that pathetic 'oh no i have a single parent family, oh no my brother is so young'line.

You're not the only one without a parent. And your fans are So gonna shoot back at me and go like, 'You evil bitch! You don't know how its like to have a single parent!' and the kind of nonsense Xiaxue blabbers.

Well I do understand. I have no mum.

amused said...

gee relax lah, i see a lot of people posting emails of what they wrote to kimage and voxy on their blogs what. so defensive for what? no balls now, scared kenna sued issit?

i don't see her mentioning names too, so really, unless you have something to hide, i don't see why you should be so paranoid now to post disclaimers. even to the extent, of putting on the blame on poor king of tears. you are one of a kind, dude.

btw, correcting your posts, does that mean you are editing your posts, and by that, censoring free speech huh?

amused said...

dawney, so? everyone's not in the same position. if it's hard on her, it might not be for you. everybody takes trauma/hardship differently. you apparently take it well, good on you, it doesn't mean she's trying to play the sympathy card.

and NO i am not a fan, i just think you are so out of the line.

leonard said...

"amused" xlx only added a disclaimer on top of the contents of his/her original post which is left unedited. I think xlx had to do this to prevent xiaxue from suceeding with her lies and accusations.

xiaxue on the other hand edits away "FUCKER" and "PIG" away from her racist post to destroy evidence.

There is a fucking big difference.

leonard said...

and how can adding a disclaimer equate to censoring free speech? Amused, the way you argue is so so soooooooooooo much like the way xiaxue argues - illogical. Could you be *gasp* her??

PUI. and please lah, don't be so blinded by your hate of that pink poodle can? can't you see he's just putting the disclaimer so he won't be sued?

anon ah, you come from single parent family meh? prior to that, i don't see her using it mah, but now, i think it really affects her, then she say mah, this sort of thing don't need to lie one what. also don't need sympathy one what. people don't give a shit about disabled people leh, you think people give a shit about her coming from single parent family meh? plus, her mother read her blog, sure du lan she lie to so many people that her family is broken if it's not, right?

not as if it's very glam to come from a single parent family. it's like having depression, but not wanting to come out and tell people, but in the end, you have to, because people keep thinking why the hell are you so screwed up one.

She needs to get owned, that's the fact.

Dani said...

Heh, definitely needs to pwned.

I feel sorry for her mother actually, or Momo or whatever she calls her. Having to support a girl who leads a decadent (oh come on now, don't tell me whatever she does ISN'T decadent, I don't pull crap like that and I'm upper middle bloody class...) without (supposedly) having the means to support it. She's only starting out with her career and shes already trying to lead a socialite's life. Oh gosh, i take back what i said when i said shes like a whiny 20-something version of Sumiko Tan, shes much much worse.

I generally give a snort of derision to anyone who thinks BLOGGING and COMMERCIALISM can co-exist. That defeats the purpose of have a free medium of speech in the first place, and there is where XX has dug her own grave. Ah well. Curse? Can. Swear? Can. As long as you make like Maddox, who represents noone but himself and his overgrown testicles. (and is still pretty famous.) Heres a clue: for mass appeal, appeal to the general public and do your best not to repulse them. Paris MAY be famous, but shes definitely not respected, so whatshit is kenny sia trying to pull with that comparison? Heh.

So poor ah, go eat maggie mee lah.

Actually it can, but that depends on what the blog's about. For instnace, a blog dedicated to a hobby, say plastic modelling, can have sponsors from related brand names (like Tamiya, Hasegawa, Bandai etc), and if the guy running it is respected in that area, he can even endorse these products too. It's not that much different from hobby websites, but then again--different names, same principles.

However, for vanity blogging( especially the Wendy kind)... now that's a different story. =)

Can be commercialized too! Endorse products with a sexual appeal. Pose for FHM magazine to satisfy the horny bengs and desperate lao bengs, promote sexual products with sight and sound effects and encourage more and open sex at a younger age to promote the sales of condom(that is if she knows the importance of safe sex).

admit that, WC screwed her both endorsement deals HERSELF.
IF she's endorsing any company, she should at least have the basic courtesy to stop her insults and stuffs. who cares if she does it privately.
she knows it very well herself, if she blogs about it, she will create alot of commotions and true enough, it did.
it's just the way how she carries herself infront of the public and the company.

true enough?

Barbie doll and revealing dress sense, full make-up, short petite, slutty look, vain, spice up your sexual fantasies with seductive language and body language and most importantly open to sex which can satisfy your sexual needs..

Are guys standard getting better and better nowadays? Cock doesn't stand up as long as they see a pair of tits regardless of how one looks above their shoulder and if she has a good heart behind the tits?

Her blog attracts more than 10,000 views daily based on her blog's counter. Besides her KL and the JC students entries, she is getting only an avg of 100 comments. Even the recent one where she is being dropped off the endorsements is getting lesser comments than the KL and JC's entries.

Everyone knows that she moderates comments allowing ONLY those nice nice comments to show. She deletes comments that reflect badly on her.

1. Does that mean there are more people leaving negative comments on her blog?

2. Does that mean there are more onlookers than fans? They don't give a damn fuck if she lost the endorsements or not.

2. Most of the readers have better things to do in their real lives. Ppl read her blog just to get tickled how silly she is.

When she looks back a couple of years down the road on all these blogging stuff, she'll realize how stupid she was....or maybe not, her mentality froze after her PSLE.

I always laugh at people who boast about their PSLE results long after they have left school. It's quite sad that XX doesn't realise how insignificant these results are in the real world. People don't care anymore what you did at school - what matters are your life skills (like ability to handle pressure), which she has demonstrated that she has very little of.

She doesn't deserve a chance when she doesn't give others a chance. She doesn't deserve to be forgiven when she doesn't understand what it is to be forgiving.
She doesn't deserve others understanding when she doesn't offer her understanding towards others.
She doesn't deserve respect when she doesn't respect others.

Obviously she is still proud of her own doing, full of herself and believes she is god's sent. Do you think she will change in a year or two time when all she wants to hear are people encouraging her to stay the same?

She has offended too many and I don't think she feels repentent or regret of her own actions at all. We aren't in the position to judge the rights and wrongs but we can voice out our own opinions on her. Don't you realise the oppositions from the public are greater but she insists she is never at fault.

Chances are not given by others but earned by self. :)

From XX's recent post
"My point is not that I don't have constructive topics and that I scold vulgarities (all the time) of course"

So here r some reasons, she
1. is vulgar
2. is a bitch (by her own admission and she is very proud of it too..read some of her earlier blogs)
3. come across as what one would describe as a 'dumb blonde'...only dumb blondes r supposedly pretty & XX is not..

The list can go on but does one need to say more...???

From her sentence, looks like she knows it but does not want to change. Good point that you quote! There's always at least a 'fuck' in her post. And, no constructive topics from her only criticism. Oh kk, now i see why people really hate her.

Mind me, but i don't go through her long entries. Hais, -.-

you are a laughing stock if you can be so full of yourself, and choose to believe you are better than everyone else, and is the greatest creation by God after Eve and Adam when you have been to only Orchard Road and watch an hour of discovery channel in your entire life time.

My point exactly. Wendy is such a small, insignificant, poor excuse for a celebrity when compared to those celebrities.

kennysia,
how is it we're wasting our time? the emails worked, didn't they? her endorsements got pulled, as the screenshots testify.

your point about her being an insignificant, poor excuse for a celebrity is correct. but that doesn't make her unaccountable, nor immune to the appraisal of public, especially since she was appointed as a spokesperson for companies or products.

i'm sure you understand how important it is for the image of the endorser to be synonymous with that of the company represented. xx is a blatantly foul-mouthed and irreverent individual (which is an understatement) and I'm not sure if respectable companies desire to be associated with such a person.

certainly not voxy or kimage.

Kenny, Stop trying to defind ur flawed argument with another flawed argument. U r making urself look stupid.

Along the lines of ur logic, r u suggesting if u see some fights on the street, instead of reporting it to the police, u rather write to President Bush to ask him not to invade Iraq? so as to "make a much bigger impact."

And if u witness a case of an animal abuse, instead of confronting the issue, u'll write to some World Animal Protection Society?? so as to "make a much bigger impact."

Kenny, I thought u r the few bloggers who has a humour and write witty stuff... but with your blind insistence to defend XX with flawed arguments, the opinion of u has gone down a few notches

XX was headed to KL. She got on the plane and sat down in business class.

A few minutes later, a flight attendent came up to her and told her that her ticket was for economy and she had to move from the seat. She refused. The flight attendent was persistant, but XX replied, "No, I want to sit here, I've always wanted to see what it is like in business class."

The flight attendent was getting frustrated. Finally, after quite some time, she convinced her to move.

Another passenger who overheard the conversation asked the attendent, "How did you get her to move?"

The flight attendent replied, "I told her that business class doesn't stop in KL."

Yes it was, and either the reporter didn't bother with reading her blog, or he chose to ignore them. Measuring penises and poking fun at sarong party girls? We're not bothered with that; it's her other more controversial stuff like her recent "school vs students blogging" that should be highlighted, 'cos they concern the general public more.

I was quite taken aback by the support she got from the two organisations. Wonder if they actually read what she wrote. It wasn't just about using the toilet--which, had Wendy stated her views in a proper manner, no one would've given her stick--but the way she mocked the disabled.

I will be writing to these two organisations (and the press). This is pathetic, it's like someone just smacked you on the head from behind, smiles nicely at you, and you think it was just a "misunderstanding".

Patheic.

Why didn't the ST quote this:

"As far as I am concerned, you have a physical disability - and that is where you have a disadvantage. Your bladder is working fine isn't it? So you wait, just like normal people do, when there is a queue for the toilet. The rest of us queue up to use a toilet - I don't see why the disabled should be any different."

The dumb bitch does not understand the health problems faced by disabled. The ST article is highly screwed.

gesundheit said...

SimpleSandra: I agree with you. What pissed many people off about her blog post was not that she thinks handicapped toilets can be used by able-bodied persons (I'm sure most of us have used one at one point or another), but the way she PHRASED her words. They were mocking, derogatory, and disrespectful.

If the two organisations had read the actual post, they wouldn't even have bothered addressing the "handicapped toilets for public" issue, but would have taken umbrage at the way she worded her post. I bet they were just called up by ST and asked whether it was fine for the public to use those loos, with the reporter giving them little or no idea of what the question is for. They probably took it as just a routine research question from a journalist.

What a seriously skewed article. I'm thinking of writing in too. ST is a joke.

Imagine if you are insulted by me the way she insulted others? Or you are accused by the way you accused others which is passing rude comments and comparing people whom you don't even know?

She insulted people whom she doesn't even know in person or attempt to hear their point of views.

This is one of the reason why people hated her. Put "yourself" in others shoes before "you" point fingers to others.

In case you are sensitive again, the "yourself" and "you" is not implying YOU. It is generalization.

She should really have a taste of her own medicine but obviously it doesn't work as she is too self-absorbed.

Having read almost all the blogs that are involved in the "toilet for disabled' issue and the emails and replies to/from the sponsors of 'Xiaxue', I am convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that human kind is basically vicious, malicious, wicked, evil, cruel,unforgiving, selfish, and greedy, among other beastly traits.

I'm not a blogger, but I do read a variety of good blogs from all over the world; I'm a fan of nobody and this is my first ever response to any blog. It is easier to sum up this over-blown issue in point form :

1) Expressing one's opinion about the usage of a toilet cubicle for the disabled is absolutely a non-issue; even the usage of such toilet by an abled person is not a crime or an offence, unless it's made a law, such as cruelty to animal for example.

2) Having expressed her reasons and opinion on the topic, she is, of course, open to dissenting views, such as the hundreds of responses I read here and elsewhere. BUT, dissenters should only express or counter with evidences within the boundaries of the laws so as not to be accused of slanders or defamations subsequently.

3) Obviously, the issue is now over-blown and will snowball given the fact that the dark side of human kind normally prevails. That's why we have to resort to the laws of the land from time to time.

4) The "boycott products" campaign and the mails written to the sponsors of "xiaxue" can have no valid justifications other than to break her rice bowl so to speak. This I really find hard to accept because it is pure wickedness, malice and jealousy. To add insult to readers, these people say they are doing it for the younger generation, our children ! There is even one who declares himself a Roman Catholic on his site ! To him, I ask where is his sense of forgiveness and Catholic values (Remember Pope John Paul II and his would-be assassin ?) I'm not anti-Catholic as I'm one myself, but I am ashamed of his actions.

5) It amuses me everytime I read remarks (I can't remember exact words) about her "not toning down her offensive words..", "..this being the second time she insulted people..", "..her language is vulgar..", "..she is anti-christian.."..why the sponsors are not taking actions yet.." and a host of others humorous statements. This clearly shows that these people either do have vengence in mind or are sadistically cruel. In that case, there is no point debating on the issue because no reasoning will hold.

6) It is hard not to notice that there are many, who in the words of some Malaysian bloggers, second class Malaysian citizens who are so keen in this "toilet" topic of the Singapore blogsphere. Is joining in this fracas gaining you more traffic to hope for future endorsements ? The idea is good provided their actions are not malicious or tainted with ulterior motives. But I just wonder why they, including those living abroad in places such as Perth,Australia, don't concentrate their efforts to write and campaign for a more equal status back home for their children's sake ?

7) It is also strange to note that even non-asian, a british national, is actively involved, not in a manner expected of him, coming from a country that preaches human rights and other high-level virtues. He seems to be snooping here and there and planting seeds of hatred and factionalism to achieve his ends. I hope he won't create another "opium war".

8) All said and done, it is best to know where to draw one's line. Any action has a reation as sure as the sun must rise. I won't be surprised if archives of concerned blogs are already downloaded and saved for a close scrutiny to discover any offensive remarks requiring official complaints or legal actions. If nothing at all, there is such a thing as retribution or karma which will befall on the wicked and evil ones, not so much on themselves, but on their most beloved - that is even more painful.

It is a big deal and society should pay more attention to it and should not condone what xiaxue said.

butsy said...

From a malaysian blogger:-

http://www.brandmalaysia.com/


A picture is worth a thousand wrong words.

When I first saw the image (picture above) that accompanied the article, I cringed. The pose looked like one from medieval art, where the knight stood proudly on the head of a dragon that he had slained a moment before. (Thanks Suanie for the email).

It was on purpose, and I can tell you this much, the people at Straits Times Singapore aren't by any measure dumb. They knew exactly what they were doing and they had a rather good idea what it would make bloggers look like. A bunch of infantile and rowdy people who fight about toilets. Granted, the issue is more than mere toilets, but look at the end result.

And people say they are defending Wendy. I beg to differ. It speaks about the issue far more than what the written article can.

The fact is this issue is more than just about toilets. The disagreement stems from a difference of opinion on using toilets specially designated for the disabled. You know, the ones that has a picture of a person on a wheelchair on it, just in case some of us cannot read.

Arguments can ensue anywhere, and is not restricted to only in blogosphere. I have an anecdote to share as well. On a busy weekend in a shopping complex in Singapore, I slipped into the men's room for a leak. As I towelled dry my hand, I saw a gentleman leaving a toilet cubicle with the little wheelchair sign on it. As he opened the door, I looked at the other cubicles, which was empty. I remarked as such, and the fine gentleman quipped back, "Why you so angry, you spastic issit?"

Wonderful.

If I had returned a verbal broadside, I bet crap would not be coming out from merely our anus on that day, so I moved on and let the remark slide. Besides — from his retort — I justified to myself that he was a retard and hence being also disabled in a way, had every right to the cubicle he emerged from.

This is not to say that Singaporeans are bad. Malaysians can be much worse. Some of us would not leave it at merely a verbal salvo, things could get 'physical'. It's not about where you come from, it's about how you behave. That's what Peter Tan is trying to say, and Wendy has every right to have her own opinions. The question of why she is famous, or well read does not occur. I know more people who recognise the name Ron Jeremy over say, Oscar Wilde. (Ron Jeremy, incidentally has a Masters degree, which I believe he collected.)

However, trust Straits Times Singapore to subtely paint blogosphere in a monochromatic light, with the headline "All flushed over toilet blog."

Fundamentally what is being communicated is, we are all the same in varying intensity and the flame wars are normally all about WHO is right, not WHAT is being advanced in the course of the disagreement. The issue was not the issue, but the bloggers, and therein lies the flaw in said piece of journalism.

People disagree all the time, and on every subject. It happens in the boardrooms, in family living rooms, heck it even happens in the bedroom. I am not saying it's not newsworthy, if you notice the press highlights the name calling in Malaysian parliament with more veracity than the issues discussed within. We have a strange fascination with other people fighting. Look at the crowd that gathers in a bar fight. I'll pay good money to watch Wendy fight Peter in Nouvo.

However, the 'civic-minded' Straits Times Singapore could have used the sensationalism produced by this argument to look at the issue. The larger picture is the way countries in the ASEAN cluster generally have people who are rather apathetic to the plight of the disabled. It's almost like we don't want to see them. We throw millions to victims of natural disasters, shed a tear occasionally for the child who loses his parents and gets his sober face plastered on the news, but do not bother about the greater issue of trying to make these people's lives more productive.

This argument can be used to bring that issue to light. It's not merely about Wendy's right to crap in a toilet designated for the disabled. If she sees herself as such, who are we to question it? Well, Peter did, and he felt compelled to write to Wendy's sponsors about her attitude. People who did not like Wendy in the first place latched on and it became a flame war, and that's just that.

But look closely at where the chaos is leading us. Those of us who are not fixated on putting one or the other down, may be thinking about the disabled now, and along the way learn more about their plight and the apathy they have to face, not only about where to pee, but how they live life and interact with society.

In my opinion, they both won. That's the powerful nature of blogs. They bring a discussion or a disagreement to a wider audience, who will have to ponder about the issues, besides merely being the instrument of an A-list blogger's astroturfing mechanism.

Socially responsible journalism should look at advancing the issue. It's not that they must not play on the sensationalism, in fact it's mandatory that they do. At the end of the day, the posturing matters, and where they lead public opinion towards determines the great from the mediocre.

In that aspect, Straits Times Singapore has proven itself, in this case, to be mediocre. An opportunity presented itself to bring the discourse to a destination where the plight of our disabled breathren could be contemplated, instead they focused on two bloggers, toilets and places to get your hair and nails done. Oh, let's not forget the guy who will obviously sell more t-shirts as well.

Unless the article was written to make blogosphere look petty, inconsequential and nonsensical. In that, they were a runaway success. A corporate entity that does not fully comprehend how to harness the potential that blogs can offer their brand, will be put off by the incident and continue channeling the media spend to traditional means, and perhaps, just perhaps, that is what it's all about.

In communicating 'screw the bloggers', they screwed the disabled, messed up a great opportunity to seed public thought on issues pertaining to these disabled people and worked it in such a manner that a print ad sounds so much more reasonable than investing in bloggers, many whom are incidentally a closer touchpoint to consumers than they can ever hope to be.

Way to go.
