A strange email came to me last week. Roughly it said.. “Hi there bla bla.. my name is Zairul bla bla.. hey, how can I join your blog? Because my name is Zairul too..”. My eyes stopped blinking for at least 2 minutes. I said to myself “How am I going to reply this one?”.

It took me 4 days to finally reply to him/her (I think it’s a him because I’ve never known a women by the name Zairul, so let’s just refer this person as a “him” ). Then I told him nicely that zairul.com is a personal blog and is not open for public registration and I apologized.

Based on his yahoo email id (where I think most people add their year of birth to it such as [naked75] – a person born in 1975 and loves going commando at home), I guess he’s in his 20s or something and is really new to the internet, let alone blogging.

mynameiszairulI kept on wondering, what if there is one whole other person who’s actual named is indeed [Anwar bin Ibrahim] and visits anwaribrahimblog,  post a message,  saying “Hey Dato’ Seri, I want to register and write something in your blog because my name is Anwar Ibrahim too?” LOL.

So, I think I have to straighten things up.

To all Zairuls out there visiting this blog, I want to say thank you my name-twin brothers and sisters for visiting and I hope you can find something useful here. I also want to say sorry that zairul dot com is NOT OPEN for public registration but if you have a blog elsewhere please please tell me because I’ll be happy to visit another zairul’s blog – your blog too. I hope you guys know that if you want to use the domain [zairul] anyway, besides with a dotcom you still can register it with a dotnet, dotorg, dotcc etc.

Or better yet, what if we make an “All Zairuls’ Blog” where all the authors are named Zairul. So it’s like Zairul there, Zairul here. “Users Online : Zairul, Zairul and Zairul”.. “New Registered User :Zairul”.. “Zairul and Zairul has leave this conversation”.. how freakish is that?? I see [zairul.name] is available…

Hmmm… Who’s on board?
