Joey Alarilla on Talking Points

In his blog, The Babel Machine, Joey Alarilla writes a response to some local bloggers' (i.e. 'Sassy Lawyer') negative reactions on INQ7.net's new Talking Ponts.

An excerpt:

"It's come to my attention that the launch of INQ7.net's Talking Points blog has elicited a negative reaction among certain members of the Philippine blogging community -- you know who you are.

"It's OK to rant. It's OK to say that you hate our blog and don't want to have anything to do with it -- no one's forcing you to use it if you don't like it. But to say that it's not a "true blog," that INQ7.net has no right to use blogging as a tool because we're the mainstream media (the establishment as opposed to the bloggers who are the alternative media), and worse, to say that we apparently stole the idea from certain Philippine bloggers, well, who are now positioning themselves as the gods who determine what blogging is and who and how it should be used?"
