The anonymous idiot who seems to be an avid fan of a particular blog called "mistoqsija" has struck once again. She has now taken to including the link to the aforementioned blog in comment boxes. Now there does not seem to be any decent manner with which to explain to the imbecile that the Blogroll to the left of your screen is a personal affair that is dictated solely by personal preferences and criteria.
I include blogs that I read regularly and which tickle my fancy. I do not include blogs that I do not like and even more particularly I will not have anyone dictate which blog to include or not to include. I had promised myself (and Pierre Mejlak) that with the third intervention by the anonymous fan of mistoqsija I would blog about the whole matter. I know that by doing so I will do what the anonymous bungler wanted at least for a day or two - advertise the site she loves so much. That is the problem with flares in blogs - they give undue importance to nuisances.
There are many blogs out there that are not on my list. So what? The list does not purport to be exhaustive or an authority - it is not an aboutmalta kind of list. I am charmed by anonymous' insistence that her favourites should be included... but that would destroy the whole point of its being my list wouldn't it? I have a suggestion for the paperbag writer - start her own blog (unless she already has one) and add the links she likes. And if she is really, really bitter about all this ... I suggest she leaves out any link to J'Accuse. Dear dear.
To conclude, here is a recent contribution by anonymous asking me why my cousin's blog features on my list while mistoqsija does not. Go figure.
Fuq liema kriterji il-blogg ta' Mistoqsija mhux inkluz fil-lista, filwaqt li l-blogg ta' certu Francesco (Mon Cousin) huwa?

ghaziz (sarkazmu) anonimu:
x'ahlew... twegiba mimlija licenza poetika jisthoqqlok...
tal-mistoqsija trid twegiba
mhux ghax haqqek, imma hawn hi
la hi enigma, lanqas tisliba
hafna easy - daqs l-A B C
francesco... (mon cousin)
liema parti tqila ghalik?
cesko tieghi il-kugin
not too difficult, don't you think?
dwar mistoqsija taghmel ghageb
iffissat, tridha on my list
però jekk jien le ma nwiegeb
poem issirlek... tibqax trist!
