Discuss: Social puppets and the Blue Book

I was discussing this topic the other day with a friend.. and the issue keeps poppin’ up again with local companies tying bloggers with contracts and actually asking them not to post or tweet about any other competitor, even it was a personal opinion. Well, if this is how things are going then we should take an action to counter attack what Corp-heads are doing, am I right?

Dear Corp-Heads,

turning the blog-o-sphere into a “sponsored” puppet show won’t work.. and these are some basic rules that I wish if my fellow bloggers would follow to teach Corp-heads some manners:

  1. No more sponsorship contracts.
  2. You’re welcome -as a company- to “rent” an advertising space on my blog.
  3. You -as a company- have no right to tell me what to write and what not to write on my blog.
  4. You -as a company- can take out your Ad’s at anytime if you do not like what I post about.
  5. I, as a blogger, can write about and criticize the advertising company services and products.
  6. I, as a blogger, by the rules of the Kuwaiti constitution, have the full right to post about whatever I want, and to go whatever event.
Dear Fellow bloggers,
I would really appreciate it if you add your input to the above and spread the word to other bloggers. Call it a bloggers “blue book”! having some rules that we agree to won’t harm, but would help. let’s unite to keep our blog-o-sphere “clean”. 

Waiting for your input :)

Only in Kuwait

الأول من نوعه في الكويت
حكم ببطلان الفوائد وفقاً للشريعة الإسلامية!
في اول حكم من نوعه تصدره المحاكم الكويتية، اصدرت الدائرة التجارية المدنية برئاسة المستشار خالد العثمان حكما يقضي بعدم احقية البنك في تقاضي الفوائد المتفق عليها بعقد القرض بحجة {تجريم الفوائد الربوية على القرض وفقا للشريعة الاسلامية، وما نص عليه الدستور الكويتي من ان دين الدولة الاسلام، وان الشريعة الاسلامية مصدر رئيسي للتشريع، وكل من القرآن الكريم والسنة النبوية المطهرة}.
They should shutdown all the banks including the Central bank cause they are all built on the same system! this will be overruled soon.. but for sure it’ll cause some bad consequences especially with bu ramya
