  • Russell Brown,

    Irony alert Russell. I thought that was clear enough from the tone of CK posts and my own comment, obviously not.

    Sorry Sage, I didn't mean to sound snippy. I just find the whole thing kind of wacky.

  • Keith Ng,

    Fair call, sagenz. If the original thing that I was trying to confirm panned out, it would actually have been a matter of public interest. That was why I poked around and sent off a few emails. I didn't get anything, so I stopped pursuing it.

    But then they started erasing evidence and falling apart, which was suspicious, baffling, but mostly just amusing.

    Thankfully the persons concerned are convinced that their blogwar on the left really is Serious Business, and will thus keep on providing amusement for many Friday afternoons into the future.

    Sam, I fear you'll be disappointed; I'm guessing this trio has one riff and they've played it.

  • Emma Hart,

    Not saying that Emma is Chris Martin or anything.

    Probably more like Vettori.

    I look like Bert Sutcliffe...

    I think Emma means this one


    One of the great NZ sporting photos.



    Not a bad motivational picture at the moment Emma; you should use it as your desktop background or something. Good luck,

    If you insist on wearing white pancake makeup, too much lipstick, a ruffled suit, red rubber nose and floppy shoes, should you complain about being laughed at?

    Sounds like Whaleboy's illustrations of a certain local body politician, Craig.

    Ah, the reliable puerility of a spoonfed arrested teen.

    Was this before or after you saw the MS Paint effort in Whale's latest post?

  • Craig Ranapia,

    Who owns Keith Ng now?

    Still think we could have done without learning what a Whale being sodomised with a Cactus looks like. I think we've learned too much about what raising capital for Gotcha involves....

  • Joshua Drummond,

    Well, Keith. I hope you've learned your lesson. Make sure not to piss off obscure, childish bloggers, or you run the risk of... having a company named after you? This is actually the equivalent of writing "Keith Ng is a dick" on a pencil case. I think we have a new definition of "pathetic."

    They'll be threatening to hold their breath next.

    Are they seeking pledges per minute?

  • Nick Spencer,

    Dude that is lame. So lame. Immature. I always knew those Young Nats/ACT were in to the BDSM but didn't need the visual!!

    Its a dead issue..a question was asked, thats all. Journo 101. There is a right to not reply or offer comment. Or you can have a 5 year old hissy fit. And dreams of sweet revenge?

    I suppose its a choice of being professional or not..something CK goes on and on about. What happened? Hypocrisy much?

    Anyway back to real life!!

    Haywood manages a more convincingly menacing impersonation with poetry tossed in.

  • ScottY,

    A childish prank that could easily backfire on the Whale, if one were inclined to register any of the company names in NZ (they're all available):

    - Cameron Slater Ltd
    - Whaleoil Ltd
    - Cactus Kate Ltd
    - Gotcha NZ Ltd.

    Oh to have a few hundred dollars to waste and a petty streak...

  • Sacha,

    Yes, but what would you actually do with them? And would the Companies Office be impressed when they were challenged? Brave, huh.

    Ak • Since May 2008 • 16771 posts Report Reply

  • ScottY,

    The Companies Office would have no grounds for a challenge, unless the names were considered offensive.

    Actually, that could be a problem...

  • steven crawford,

    Yes, but what would you actually do with them?

    They could be used for marketing Adults only products, on the Internet.

  • Sacha,

    So there's no companies equivalent of cybersquatting with someone's name?
