Mamma, Don't Let Your Kids Grow Up To Be Bloggers

Sometimes, I just want to drop everything and close shop ... why bother blogging? Although we can be magnanimous and try to be the better man by deflecting or not caring what certain a-holes may say about you or your blog, its still sometimes difficult to ignore when mud is thrown.

http://www.topnews.in/files/Aung-San-Suu-Kyi301.jpg

So, if you or if you allow your kids to write a blog, here is what they will have to contend with:

a) many people will hate your blog and you for various reasons or for no apparent reason, some or most of them being infantile and unjustified

b) most blogs have a life span of 6 months, most are just too tired to update regularly, or have nothing to say, or a dire lack of visitors, why bother ... so we need to ask ourselves, why blog???

c) by putting something out there in the open, its like submitting a paper to 1,000 teachers and fellow students and allowing them to mark you ... some provide good criticisms and feedback, but what do you do when they just like to blast you for nothing esp when they can't even string a coherent idea properly justified together

In my case, these are the usual fucked up bombs coming my way:

1) yeah, he will buy first, then write about it and sell - so, do you want me NOT to buy at all, which is better or worse, buy then write, don't buy but write anyway ... when you don't buy and write anyway, where is your conviction ... whether I sell or not is none of your business, thank you very much

2) yeah, he works with syndicates - Please la, how many syndicates are there, and see how many stocks I write about, how to have so many syndicates all working with me, if it is the case then I am the most powderful man in town la

3) his picks underperform - then don't fucking listen to me la, why when you lose money you still want to follow, bullshit right ... fool you once shame on me, fool you twice ... shame on you .. fool you ten times, I think you should kill yourself if you still follow

4) his female pics are rude to girls - ????? why is it rude, why, are the girls looking rude to you? ... these are photos they willingly take, so that ... they can forever stash away??? They are never pornographic, always tasteful, and I always make sure they have names because they are fellow human beings, and not objectifying them. I post only Asian girls because:
a) I like looking pretty girls, b) I want to promote the notion of Asian female physical beauty cos I think we are already swarmed by Western images of physical beauty (Albas, Johanssens, Jolies, etc..) - think about self esteem and role model issues ... how is that disrespectful???

5) the female pics have no place in a financial blog - eerr.... says who??? show me the text book please ... if you have a blog about science matters, and you put animal pics all over, thats your prerogative .. don't like, just go somewhere else, why stress yourself out??? Don't like the language, go somewhere else la .... Its just like people who oppose gay marriage, ... then don't marry a gay person la, why stress yourself out .... anti smoking, then don't smoke la ... or go to places where people don't/cannot smoke. If you are still adamant that you should be free to smoke free places anywhere, what about the rights of smokers.

So, sometimes I just want to throw it all away and not write anymore. Its not worth it, why do it? Sharing also kena. Don't even have to pay money one, also kena. Its like free tickets to a movie, but still want to bash the person who gave the tickets .. don't like movie, walk la.


But I will continue because I know there are more readers who like this stupid blog, and you cannot eliminate the assholes (not because they disagree or criticise but because the unjustifiable and unsupported way of doing it), we all have to deal with the assholes in our lives ... and I am sure, we ourselves are the assholes in some other people's lives as well. Same hole different cover -... very deep la...


p/s featuring Aung San Suu Kyi is not bowing to the complaints, btw she has been featured more than once before ... so, featuring a lady who has "achieved significant things" is not disrespectful? ... or please draw me the line. Or should I also feature "not pretty women" so that it balances things out??? Or that I am helping readers propagate the importance of physical beauty over other more important qualities such as human spirit and character (these are important qualities for any person to have, not just women, but there are other platforms and ways and means to propagate such ideals and desires ... my blog cannot do everything la) ... THEN PLEASE GO BURN ALL BEAUTY, FEMALE, MALE, FASHION, LIFESTYLE magazines or write to them, don't just write to me. Don't shoot me, I'm just a flawed blogger.

Keep it coming dali, no one can stop you, only urself.

Roy said...

Dali, I've been following your blog for years. I've learned a lot and continue to benefit from your blog. Please continue blogging. I visit your blog at least 2-3 times a day.
If I know you personally, I'd buy you dinner at any of your favorite restaurant. A small fraction of the profits that I made from Perisai should cover it. And I'm still holding on DRBHicom. And, oh, thank you so much too on SPSetia :-)

Dali, thank you so much.

From Beyond the Wall said...

fuck those who want to stop by, but just to criticise. the rest of us love your picks, insight, advise, reviews and girls.

my only grouse is that you've not been naming the girls lately. asian girls rock!

ck5354 said...

I support you. Don't stop blogging. Your blog post better than reading the edge.

David Koay said...

Don't let the assholes bother you. They are not worth your time and attention at all. You've done a great service to the investment industry. Keep it up! Your blog is well-loved and highly recommended by people around me as well :)

klkhoo said...

AhYap.com said...

I give up already. lol.

Justin Choo said...

Hi Dali,

It's nothing new in this world, especially in the internet where it's "free for all"!

Someone just called me "flat top" for I posted a comment expressing sadness in the latest appeal rejection in Save Yong Vui Kong Facebook. Just leave them alone, and they will not bark again when they found no one stooping to their level to bark back.

Fabien Wong said...

Continue what you do best. Just ignore those fuckers in investlah forum. Cheers!

brian.wong said...

The main reason I visit your blog is because of the girls, looking at the pretty girls photos every morning make my day! :)

Loo said...

Dali,

Your posts and stock recommendations are great. Forget about those who criticise becos these are just retards. Retards are ppl who insist on reading your blog but just refuses to follow your advise and then fall into utter desolation when they dont make money, only to put all the blame onto others. I think many who follows your recommendations have make considerable amounts of pocket money more than enough for their weekend shopping.

Keep up your fantastic posts!

Buyer said...

Hi S.Dali,

Mind i share my experience..

Few years back when I was just fresh out from Uni and I always believe there are always "good and sincere" ppl around. I was so naive and trusted a bastard from Penang that offered a 1 day course come with a sure win s/w that cost me 6k! Imagine 6k for a fresh grad was almost my all saving that time!! As expeceted I got CON + loss lots of money by followed that s/w!! Real dump!! and I don't blame that guy but instead myself of being DUMP!!

Follow ur blog since 2yrs back and attended one or ur seminar! Make me feel that "good and sincere" ppl do actually exist! MTD made me once felt that u were from category one, tell ppl and sell it afterwards, but gut feeling made me hold till the end. This is my biggest WIN so far!! Many thanks.

Have to admit, I do disagree with some of your postings, but you just can't have ppl 100% agree with you. I do get burnt by some of your stock picks, but buffet can't get 100% win!! Why those ppl wanna critize just get lost if you feel unhappy with the postings!!Feel pity for those stupid ppl!!

Still remember you mentioned once in your previous post, "I wish there was someone who wrote the same to me when I was in younger age so that I don't make such mistake" or something like that....you r the one who write these advise to the naive ppl like us now

Regards,
Buyer

Hi Dali, I was introduced to your blog some months back and have been visiting your blog at least 2 -3 times a week. I enjoyed reading it very much. I have been checking the performance of the counters that you write have been pretty impressed by it. In fact, I went into Benalec today at 1.45 after reading your blog. No worries, I am aware that the risk is mine solely; no blaming game. Keep blogging....

Wings said...

Like the great lady you featured, she took her knocks and took her bumps but she never stops. You should not too...!!!

james said...

Do what you think is right ignore those who think otherwise.. I enjoy your insight, language and creativity with pictures.. Im a photographer but yet amazed with your excellent tastes,.. keep posting Dali

iamyuanwu said...

You do realise there is a strong following that doesn't comment that often (if at all), right?

Don't let the vocal few distract you.

BTW, the some picture might be NSFW, but I like them anyway. I could just turn off the pictures in my browser at work.

ChampDog said...

Yeah, please keep it up! :)

torres said...

pls don't stop writing.. you are a great writer and I do counter check the counters I want to buy on your blog...

tanhc said...

Hi Dali
It's your blog = your homeground. Whoever visits and starts to growl/bark/scream/grunt...just show him the door, or just ignore him. Such visitors are not worth a minute of your time to fuss over, right? Keep your breath and your time for things that will make you happy, like writing more on what you are best at, and we all know what those are or else you won't have such a long queue of fans and supporters lining up to say,'hey, yeh yeh, we are with you, Dali!"

Like this you don't get to sai your hey mah...

Salvatore_Dali said...

Dexter Morgan said...

Ignore haters. Quite the best blog around.

lk said...

Hi, ignore the a-holes. I enjoy your rants, raves, recommendations and what-nots tremendously. Keep them flowing.

Kingsmen said...

Calvin said...

Can't satisfy all the people in this world. As long as conscience is clear, then no problem. If have to satisfy everyone in the world, then cannot do anything lo.

Calvin said...

Can't satisfy everyone in this world. As long as conscience is clear, then no problem. If have to satisfy everyone, then cannot do anything. I bet even don't do anything also someone will be offended.

Kelvin said...

Hi, your blog have been my guide on investment since 2 yrs ago. Yeah, sometimes there maybe flaw on certain area but that's investment. Nobody is rite or wrong.There still many of us loves your blog. Dun because few criticism, we give up. Instead it makes you stronger. Cheer up dude!

p/s: Kip up the song, asian gals posting. Great job !

clearwater said...

Mamma sometimes has no choice. It's not entirely up her if her kids choose to be bloggers, or even scrabble players, or bull fighters. Best that mamma support them in their choice of vocation if such is their passion and let the kids figure out what they want to be eventually.

michellekuan said...

opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. so, don't bother.

ROBERT said...

Intellect and class probably conform to the bell shape distribution curve. So not everyone will have it in them to discern what you are doing but me think u are doing great and I thoroughly enjoy your blog. Keep them coming dude. Cheers.

bOcy said...

"Mamma, Don't Let Your Kids Grow Up To Be _________"

we hear this a lot. in my line, it was "engineers"

Malaysians are really not happy, few has job satisfaction, nobody wants to do low level or dirty work, we need to fix this.

Christy said...

aiyo.... please ignore the others. I enjoy reading your blog. I'm a female, but i love the pics ok. Beautiful beings are meant for sharing! Erm... about stock picks, so far i've been profiterring from them. It's normally a matter of time. I guess some personal discretion is also necessary.

freddy wong said...

Dali, you are doing great man! Those A-holes are bloody losers. They compliant, go start own blog...see how many people visit your site. Hey Dali is putting money where his mouth is ma? Like that also complain. Would you prefer otherwise?

Tian Su said...

Really appreciate your work here. It's a masterpiece. Not many bloggers out there have the discipline to update their blog nearly everyday. Keep up the good work.

brian.wong said...

record comments! this shows how many supports you have garnered all these while. Perhaps, you may consider stand for election.

Anon118 said...

And I thought I'd write something nice... Your page got flooded mate. Hahahaha...

Anyway, I think it would be fair to say that your readers don't comment much because most of the time they think what you say/write is already very well written. Nothing more to add...

I'm very new, regretfully old but new/fresh in this. Should see more of my comments when I think I have something intellectual to write. So, YOU da man! ;)

Soon Hui said...

You should be very happy that people are willing to spend time reading and commenting your blog. Most blogs die not because of negative criticism but because there is none; those blogs are simply not read.

So, the more hate mails/comments you receive, the happier you should be. It shows that you are widely read, it shows that people care enough about the stuffs you post that they have to spend time posting comments.

k said...

hey, just fuck them all... don't give these assholes any thought man...
just continue writing ur good shit (+ posting pics of beauties coz i love it!)
many cheers, ken.

lofan73 said...

terriberri said...

I always respect pple who agree to disagree and NOT some sore losers. Write what pleases yoy.This is a democratic country....oops...I mean GUIDED democratic country....in this case you guide yourself....DALI...

kean kong said...

Dear Greatest Blogger of all time,

First of all, I love your blog. I visited your blog everyday to check on updates. Your blog is very inspiring and useful to me although I'm still a student; an Engineering student with a deeply interest on personal finance;)
So, keep up the good work man.
And Thank you for all your kindness and time to share your knowledge.
Cheers~!
p/s: hot girls' photo rocks!

chynna.i said...

My wife saw me reading your blog and thought I was into some dating sites but after I show her the contents she just smiles and said you have good taste and never bother me anymore. So it is substance over form. (E.g if we listen to the Qaddafis' or the Kim Jong Ils' of this world, this planet of ours will not be a habitable place).

Raje said...

Dear Dali, keep posting whatever you have, if they can't understand your intention, leave it. Don't bother, You have good judgement in everything you write. Keep it up.

Batman said...

Sire,

There are always some "dim-wits" out there who don't contribute useful opinions but would like to leave their marks on cyberspace.

Let's not dignify these "gutter-level" comments at all.

Our lives are most precious and we shall never ever let these comments, which are baseless and mala fide, to affect us.

Keep up your splendid contribution!

God bless, sire.

Rosie said...

How I came to know of your blog? Personal Money Magazine (Mac 2011) published a winner's letter citing your website for personal finance information. I read your blog for general information though I don't invest in share market. I appreciate the immense amount of research and analysis you've reported. Naturally as a lady, i quickly scroll down the female posters. I'm confident of my appearance and have no need to "oogle" nor copy what clothes or make up the models are wearing. The other website I like to reflect on as "food for thought" is the Malay Mail online. Writers and readers blast their comments on current issues and consumer's complaints. There'll always be critics who choose to see the half empty glass. Continue doing what you like, if it's less regular updates it's fine with me. R. Nadeswaran from Sun Newspapers took a short break from investigative reporting to break away from the monotony.
