Anonymous Commenting is Open now!!

O.k the poll is closed and votes are in. The verdict is:

  • 73% of the readers who voted says 'Yes' the anonymous commenting should be allowed.
  • 16% says 'No'
  • 4% are not sure whether anonymous commenting should be allowed or not and
  • 6% voted to say that anonymous comments should be allowed subject to comments not going off on tangent, which I do agree.
Well, thank you readers for voting so wholeheartedly and let your views known and also thank you for bringing me out of dilemma on whether I should or shouldn't allow anonymous commenting on my blog. Going with you I've opened anonymous commenting on Arunachal Diary once again.

So, what are you waiting for; stage is yours now, go on commenting...even anonymously, of course. Till I come up with commenting policy, my only request to you is be civil, respect others and do not feed the trolls.

    High time. One cannot be bothered to sign into Google,when even typing in the " word Verification" is a bother.
    Its better to be anonymous because it makes sure your opinions are heard with least amount of prejudice. If you know my name/profession/address/community/religion etc then it may dilute your views on my opinion with preconceptions. As such we are not fully anonymous even now.I m sure you know who I am by now, and I do know who you are;)
    If somebody want to be truly anonymous I suggest they use Proxy servers to browse.

    Buru,
    I didn't know that 'Word Verification' was such a pain in the a*** to commenter:) Anyways now I've disabled that too and I guess that would be better:)

    And no, I haven't been able to identify you yet though I have this inkling that I know you, but then I'm not sure. BTW do we know each other?

  • Buru

    ag,

    Pl dont disable word verification or else you will get automatic-generated spam or other manual marketeers.
    No we dont know each other at all, our paths never crossed. But i have my sources;)
    * Why dont you remove " Recent Posts" column, since " Blog Archive" is already present? It makes loading longer. Also you may increase "recent comments" to 10 latest comments from present6.

  • AG

    Buru,

    Eh! All the while I thought I know you but .... poor sources than yours:(

    Your suggestions taken. I would consider implementing on your suggestions soon. Actually, I introduced recent posts column because I thought I would restrict to one post on main page but I decided on two.

    Regarding 'word verification' I would leave it disabled for now but as soon as I start getting spams I would re-enable it. Thanks for the concern and suggestion.

  • AG

    Three post on main page infact..:)

    @Buru,
    He he he :)
    I am just curious about you (but, don't take it in other sense). If both you and AG knows each other, here I am-the third person;I am still not getting any link to unveil ur identity.Will you mind revealing little bit about yourself???

    Because your comments are the most interesting part of all existing blogs from AP as well as your thoughts are very intellectual, matured and direct DIL SE.That gives a rough idea about you being another fellow arunchalee located at.......(I will be honoured if u fill up this blank)
    :)

    NPR,

    I am flattered by ur kind words.However, being a very direct person, I often post things which will make a lot of people take umbrage with my views, esp on politics. Hence I prefer to give my views as a faceless person.
    It is my opinion that we Arunachalis need to be more pro-active with our views and actions (but without resorting to violence)if we have to catch up @ the national or international level, and even intrastate level rather than deceiving ourselves with rhetoric.
    Suffice to say I am a fellow Tani with similar interest as yours...and I am a big admirer of your effort.I hope people also record their religious chants fully before they go extinct as I believe a lot of our past history is encrypted therein as mythology.

    you and AG may like to include this extraordinary piece of work which I came across on the net--A GRAMMAR OF GALO--

    @Buru,
    Though this comment is like something personal discussion between us....never mind :) if you are more comfortable to be faceless Arunachalee lols :)
    Thanks to you too (for your response).

    And about that dissertaion work on GALO, I have already downloaded entire pdf some one month back as my co-author PB passed me the link, anyways thanks.

  • buru

    NPR,

    If you are working on Tanii language congrats. Pl do give special emphasis on working out proto-Tanii-->then proto-Tani but without going through the above Galo work, to prevent bias from creeping in.The work by Mark Willaim has serially worked out proto-galo-->proto Tani ;and if the Apatanii work also works out similar words for proto-Tani then we will know how our common ancestors conversed!However if different words are worked out by your team vs Mark William by reverse-ligusitic engiineering( sorry I dunno what else to call it:) then we may have to study it more...

    MAKE $50000 IN A MONTH!!! Take 5 minutes to read

    Take five minutes to read this and it WILL change your life.

    I just read an article in an internet newsgroup describing how to make
    $50,000.00 in only one month from a $5.00 investment.
    Of course I thought this was ridiculous, or some type of pyramid. I
    talked it over with my family, an attorney, and my friends, and they
    all agreed it was some sort of scam. I hate scams because usually
    someone gets burned, and I didn't want it to be me! I blew it off for
    a few weeks then saw another one in a newsgroup I go a lot and
    thought, " maybe this is legitimate", besides whats $5.00 , I spend
    more than that in the morning on my way to work on coffee and cigs for
    the day!
    Well, two weeks later, I began receiving money in the mail!, I
    couldn't believe it!
    Not just a little, I mean big bucks!!. At first only a few hundred
    dollars, then a week later a couple of thousand, then BOOM., By the
    end of the fourth week, I had received nearly $47,000.00. It came from
    all over the world. And every bit of it perfectly legal and on the up
    and up. I've been able to pay off all my bills and still had enough
    left over for a nice vacation for me and my family.
    Not only does it work for me, it works for other folks as well. Marcus
    Valppu says he made $57,883 in four weeks, Dave Manning claims he made
    $53,664 in the same amount of time. Dan Shepstone says it was only
    $17,000.00 for him. Do I know these
    Folks?. No, but when I read how they say they did it, it made sense to
    me. Enough sense that I'm taking a similar chance with $5 of my own
    money. Not a big chance, I admit-but one with incredible potential,
    because $5 is all anyone ever invests in this system. Period. That's
    all Markus, Dave or Dan invested, yet their $5 netted them tens of
    thousands of dollars each, in a safe, legal and completely legitimate
    way. Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

    STEP 1.

    Invest your $5 by writing your name and address on five separate
    pieces of paper along with the words, " PLEASE ADD ME TO YOUR MAILING
    LIST".
    (In this way, you're not just sending a dollar to someone; you're
    paying for a legitimate service). Fold a $1 dollar bill, money order,
    or bank note inside each paper, and mail them by standard U.S. Mail to
    the following five addressees:

    1) Marco Monet
    409 NE 107 St
    Miami Fl 33161

    2) Alain Renaud
    2638 Augustin Cantin
    Montreal QC Canada
    H3K 1E1

    3) J.R. Arnold
    14777 Wunderlich Dr. 2212
    Houston, Texas 77069

    4) Leila Khalil
    309 E Rand Rd 302
    Arlington Heights IL 60004

    5) Robert del Rosario
    3313 Ashby Field Avenue
    North Las Vegas, Nevada 89031

    Step 2.
    Now remove the top name from the list, and move the other names up.
    This way , #5 becomes #4 and so on. Put your name in as the fifth one
    on the list.

    Step 3.
    Post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. There are at least 17000
    newsgroups at any given moment in time. Try posting to as many
    newsgroups as you can. Remember the more groups you post to, the more
    people will see your article and send you cash!

    Step 4.
    You are now in business for yourself, and should start seeing returns
    within 7 to 14 days!!. Remember, the internet is new and huge!. There
    is no way you can loose.

    Now here is how and why this system works:

    Out of every block of 200 posts I made, I got back 5 responces.
    Yes, that's right. Only 5. You make $5.00 in cash, not checks or money
    orders, but real cash with your name at #5.
    Each additional person who sent you $1.00 now also makes 200
    additional postings with your name at #4, 1000 postings. On average
    then, 50 people will send you $1.00 with your name at #4, ... $50.00 in
    your pocket!!

    Now these 50 new people will make 200 postings with your name at #3 or
    10,000 postings. Average return, 500 people = $500., they make 200
    postings with your name at #2 = 100,00 postings = 5000 returns at
    $1.00 each that's
    $5,000.00 in cash!!

    Finally, 5,000 people make 200 postings each with your name at #1 and
    you get a return of $50,000 before your name drops off the list. And
    that's only
    If everyone down the line makes only 200 postings each! Your total
    income for this one cycle is $55,000.00

    >From time to time when you see your name is no longer on the list, you

    take the latest posting you can find and start all over again.

    So that's it. Pretty simple sounding stuff, huh? But believe me it
    works!
    There are millions of people surfing the net everyday, all day, all
    over the world. And 100,000 new people get on the net every day. You
    know it, you've seen the stories in the papers. So, my friend, read
    and follow the simple instructions and play fair. That's the key, and
    that's all there is to it.
    Print this out right now so you can refer back to this article easily.
    Try to keep an eye on all the postings you made to make sure everyone
    is playing fairly. You know where your name should be.

    Note: Keep in mind that this has been circulating for over a year, so do not be surprised if some of the addresses are outdated…It won’t matter, because you KNOW your address is correct and since you are starting the process again, all the addresses added by the others will be fresh !!

    REMEMBER.... HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. YOU DON'T NEED TO CHEAT THE BASIC IDEA TO MAKE MONEY!
    GOOD LUCK TO ALL, AND PLEASE PLAY FAIR AND YOU WILL WIN
    AND MAKE SOME REAL INSTANT FREE CASH!!

    Remember "What Goes Around, Comes Around"
