[Update 4, 16/01/06 6:17pm: SOMEONE launched an attack on the pics in a bid to destroy evidence. The pics for this entry have been restored.]
[Update 3, 14/01/06 1:33am: ST's trackback was removed too. However, I applaud Agagooga for trying to maintain editorial integrity.]
[Update 2, 14/01/06 1:19am: Xiaxue is online at tomorrow.sg now, which explains why my link keeps disappearing and re-appearing at the trackbacks of the entry posted by Nadia. Editorial Integrity anyone?]
[Update: Site is experiencing high traffic - Please bear with any technical difficulties like slow load time for pics. Fixed some technical problems, Links are fine now. Added new trackbacks.]
I am sure this will go down as one of the classics in the "Hall of Shame" for the local blogosphere.
This is a story of mass deceit in its purest form. In fact, it is much more than that - This is a story of a woman scorned and her failed attempt at executing her master plan - This is a story of a publicity stunt gone wrong. This is the story of what an infamous blogger did recently. This is the story of xiaxue.
You have heard bits and pieces here and there, leaked information from my chat with blinkymummy and kimberlycun. Now let me put together the missing pieces of the puzzle for you. Brace yourselves. Here we begin...
I think it would be safe to say that most of you have heard in the news recently about a petition started by an infamous blogger to ban aerosol sprays from orchard road, to prevent molestation. If you did, you only manage to find out about 10% of the full story. If you have been following the coverage by blogs about what actually happened, you would know that Blinkymummy and I both pointed out that the blogger in question was just using the petition to divert the media's attention from the blatant racism in her entries [Read this, this, this and this].
Because our combined traffic exceeded 3,000 unique visitors a day, soon more bloggers found out what was actually going on and voiced their views on their blogs as well [See the trackbacks from the links above]. Xiaxue was taken aback by the support we have gathered and began furiously editing her entries and comments. Unknown to us, an evil plan was already beginning to form in her head.
On tuesday, I was alerted by one of my readers that xiaxue has suddenly launched a sudden attack on xlx [See screenshots below, those were taken while I was chatting with Blinkymummy on msn yesterday - The contents might have changed since, for coverup].
I was puzzled. Why did xiaxue suddenly launch an attack on xlx? I had already moved on to write about the chaos in the flowerpod forums at that time. There was no logical reason why xiaxue would suddenly write about xlx.
Just as I was wondering what was going on, I surfed technorati and found a blog entry in a new blog that mentioned "xialanxue". [The link to that entry is here but again, because of the possibility that the entry might have been deleted or edited, it is best to refer to the screenshots below]. I decided to take a look and this was what I found (read the contents in the screenshots carefully):
I felt outraged. Someone was impersonating me! [Read this] I suspected it was xiaxue herself because of the writing style and the detailed content. I emailed Blinkymummy to ask whether she had seen the site and to clarify in case there was any misunderstanding as a result of the impersonator using my nick. Blinkymummy read the contents and burst out laughing [in our email exchange]. She confirmed with me that Xiaxue was the one who wrote the entry because only the both of them would know the exact details of their multiple exchanges in the different situations!. [Read about the details from Blinkymummy here]
It was only then that it dawned on us what was really going on. I was being set up by xiaxue! And not only that, Xiaxue had planned to kill 2 birds with one stone by inpersonating as "xialanxue" to write a hate entry on blinkymummy. It was a perfect plan!
1) Attack the 2 high profile bloggers who spoke up against her blatant racism.
2) How? Do it in a separate blog by writing an entry using the nick of one to attack the other.
3) Condemn hate sites in her own blog.
4) Wait for results that both bloggers will become hated by the masses.
What xiaxue didn't expect was that it doesn't take people with PSLE scores of 269 and above to figure the evil plan out. I told kimberlycun about the irony of the situation [See Screenshot below]
Anyway xiaxue has been denying her involvement in the whole affair - She has posted another entry in the previously mentioned hate site as "xialanxue" and continued to try and execute her plan. I am sorry xiaxue, there are alot of people who are on our sides now - A reader sent in an email to me detailing a small but significant discovery he made at bloglines [See screenshots below]
I checked out bloglines myself.
It is true - In bloglines, for her last two entries, the author was supposedly "xialanxue". So she changed nick now? I am sorry dear.. That's my nick. Please get another one - And stop trying to hide behind my nick to tell the world what you really think about blinkymummy. She has already said it outright - Anything you want to say, say it to her face!
As for what I am feeling now, a picture speaks a thousand words.
P.S. As xiaxue is an editor at tomorrow.sg, trying to get this published there will be futile. You guys can help Blinkymummy and me spread the word by linking to this Exposé.
