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.
I 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?
