Bye, H

i stopped following the Professional Heckler today. after making rounds of the dailies for news on Ondoy, i got this new update from his blog entitled 'Help!'. oh, timely. perhaps he's flashing his own way of soliciting assistance for the typhoon victims. and what do i get? a blog soliciting for support (again) for his site using chikka.com. what?! kasi daw, there's this reader's choice awards and he's in the running. i get this from you during this time?! ang babaw ko daw, said one reader. ok, mababaw. but i can't seem to understand why at this time, na nagkukumahog ang mga tao how to rebuild their lives, this guy is self-servingly promoting himself (again)?! hindi pa ba enough that he's already nominated (again) for the 2009 phil blog awards? and he has what? a million followers already! is this not enough? such bad taste, and bad timing. so i drew the line. mababaw na kung mababaw. but it matters to me. so, bye, H.
