Techcrunch on Nuffnang – Losers are you, the Malaysian and Singaporean bloggers

Sometimes, bloggers have very small vision. They see a situation just on the face value. They don’t see the whole big picture and the impact on themselves. So, let me post this 5xmom’s style. It means this is going to be obnoxious. Either you read, agree and say you agree or you shaddap and leave now.


We bloggers know that Josh Lim is a comment whore who will take every opportunity to paint his company white even in posts not related to his company. Like for example, Advertlets pays well, Advertlets got a lot of ads, Adverlets got good service, Adverlets give free beer etc etc. Well, that’s why I never support this ad company. I do not care how much the company makes for me, I am more a principle person.


Michael Arrington or rather Michael Assringtone has always been a bitch to me. A total bitch because he sits in the ivory tower, earning his millions while he conveniently bashed those underdogs. He had bashed PayPerPost many times and that’s how he earned his Assringtone from me, The Obnoxious 5xmom. Kids, get real….Techcrunch earns millions because they are in the industry. They can make or break an industry just because they can.


So, Nuffnang is lucky to be featured in Techcrunch. PayPerPost too had been badly accused by Techcrunch many times over. Bad publicity is still publicity. So, Nuffnang should feel glad to be featured, albeit over a petty issue. The issue of the RM1 fee was blown up by some sour grapes, pariah bloggers and Techcrunch took advantage of it.

Now, ask yourself, kids. Why do you think Techcrunch does it? I will tell you why. Because Michael Arrington loves this kind of bitching posts. He is forever running down every ad companies because he is in the industry as well.

And just take a look at the amount of whiney kids over at Techcrunch whining they are earning only a few cents. Helloo….take a look at your own stats. If you earn a few cents, it is because your traffic is low. If you need to rant, go tell your mommy, dudes.

Do you know that spitting at the sky will eventually see the spit on your own face? Think of the big picture. How do you think our local advertisers will think when they see such stupid comments from bloggers? Do you realise that we are just starting out on advertisements on blogs and it takes a LOT to convince our local businessmen to advertise on our blogs?

Imagine whining over RM 1 aka USD33 cents! That does make us damn pariah, right?

So, conclusion – If you think local ads cannot earn you money, stop freaking use it! It is not a war between Nuffnang and Adverlets. Get real, kids.  It is about getting advertisers to advertise on blogs and it doesn’t matter which company.

I have never felt so idiotic until now. Now, the whole world is going to think “Asian bloggers are too cheap to even pay USD33 freaking cents!” That’s what mat sallehs always think. Kita orang putih, kita orang besar, kamu orang Asia, semua memang pariah. That’s their mindset and you guys have just sealed it further. Bodoh!

    Yes I read the post on Techcrunch and it was really petty. To predict the demise of an advertising company over 1 dollar.

    I watched the video where Mike Arrington called Ted Murphy “EVIL”. I thought that was funny :)

    I have seen techcrunch abusing payperpost a number of times. I wonder how does techchrunch make money and why do they receive so many email updates on everything. Reason is simple .. they just.. get paid for the posts they make .

    Damn! U’re so right about the stupidity of some of these blogging suckers. They think blogging money can be plucked from trees like when they were kids stealing rambutans, bananas and papayas. Mr Big A sucks too. The sad truth is if they don’t get wise, they won’t go far


    (November 5, 2007 - 5:47 pm)

    Good! I know my traffic is not high enough to earn anything decent from nuffnang and advertlets so now I still do not have them on my blog. :)

    The whining buggers are kanasai! Nuffnang already said they will delay implementing the RM1 / $1 deduction until 31st Oct. So, what’s all the big fuss? If they wanna whine, they should go whine at the government for not monitoring price increases effectively even though they said they would.


    (November 5, 2007 - 6:25 pm)

    this is an old story. why those idiotic still want to talk about this? now techcrunch sudah buat ini topik sebagai satu topik publisiti murah.

    stupid laa those idiotic people. you all bawak malu kat muka kita sahaja.

    From what I know the initial noises started when Nuffnang charges SG$1 (or is it RM1?) without prior notice for the publishers. Nuffnang does realize about their mistake and made necessary amendment, but it was a mistake on their part… nothing wrong for the bloggers to bash it.

    Personally if I am a Nuffnang publisher, I would have no problem accepting the $1 fee; I have affiliate programs that charged me up to USD10 per check (for oversea address), and it’s quite a common practice for companies that are running in smaller scale.

    However, I think some of the bloggers have a valid point… 1 dollar is not a big amount; but if it is not a big amount, why shouldn’t Nuffnang swallow the fees instead?

    I know some fans will jump into Nuffnang’s protection that lots of these “1 dollar” will add up to be a huge sum and could be a burden for Nuffnang… but do mind that Nuffnang is running as a business, they should have anticipated these kind of issues.

    It’s different to announce it from the beginning and in the middle of the service… people will not welcome the change regardless of the amount, especially for a company that has started for such a short period of time.

    Damage has already been done, what Nuffnang can do is to learn from the mistake and buck up themselves.

    Jee – Go out and play, don’t write such a long comment here.


    (November 5, 2007 - 7:27 pm)

    Thanks for your advice Lilian. Unfortunately it is raining heavily outside, I can’t go out and play.

    Note taken though; no further comments.

    Really so teruk and I don’t even know what to say. As I always say, people don’t think far and wide enough, and they don’t realized that they are commenting on a world-famous blog.

    Not everyone earns with Adsense and people try their best to optimise their sites to the programme instead of whining because of low income. Don’t like it, just leave it.

    No more comments, scare kena scold….


    (November 5, 2007 - 10:08 pm)

    eh aunty – did you get paid for this? hahaha

    but seriously, like whats been said, dont like it – dont use it la … simple

    i am sure tons of you have tried cj, kontera, ad brite, chitaka, and the countllss tons and tons of advert program … if you dont like it, dont use it

    it is their very perogative right to charge you, or simple, lemme suggest somethine here, they can put out an option, if you do not want to be charge with the SG1(and yeah aunty its not RM1, its SG1) go pick up the check yourselves at their office …


    (November 5, 2007 - 10:08 pm)

    one dollar also talk so much. Kids.


    (November 5, 2007 - 10:23 pm)

    freethinker – Ya, you are right.

    Earl – Eh, I got RM1 minus from my RM2K worrrrr….same mah…Got paid? You think leh? I got paid for every comment I left on every blog also. LOLOLOLOL. 50 cents for every blog comment I make. That’s why you see so many comments with so many nicks mahhhh….

    (November 5, 2007 - 11:14 pm)

    My friend who work in Singtel told me some singaporeans made a mountain out of a molehill even when they were charged extra 5 cent in their bill.

    […] to the core on the last two. You can just tell some are just trying to suck balls. Lilian put it as Losers are you, the Malaysian and Singaporean bloggers … keke, well […]

    bah, that $1 admin fee issue = old news.
    it’s ridiculous for those people to harp on it.


    (November 7, 2007 - 3:09 am)

    Agree. Just use it if you like it. If you think its hard to earn from both company. JUst leave.


    (November 18, 2007 - 3:54 am)

    Totally agree with you. The ones complaining are those small nobody bloggers. If you cant get your content to be interesting enough to maintain a steady and consistently good readership, why would advertisers want to choose you anyway…

    Those who are complaining about low cash or no ads should buck up first before they point the finger.

    Like me, I’m no big blogger but if I want to, then I may have to change the way I blog and the content. Sometimes I blog for myself and not for others to read, so I have to be realistic also…

    Thanks for sharing :)


    (November 18, 2007 - 3:11 pm)

    haha well written. its about time bloggers receive their lesson =)

    before adverlets and nuffnang there isnt any advertising company that provides bloggers with such good services. so no nuffnang or advertlets = rotten blogs as always haha
