Actually that description comes from a quote in the article by fellow blogger Rampurple:
"For example, some of us simply don't get along with Zaydoun (Kuwait Unplugged) and Mad M... they're just too negative. They keep criticising Kuwait and the people in it and so forth. If a non-Kuwait resident was reading their blogs they would think Kuwait is some hellhole"
I will give Rampurple the benefit of the doubt, and just assume that she was interviewed for this article when we all lost our tempers over my post about Lebanon last month. As far as I'm concerned, that's water under the bridge.
Besides, I don't think I should have to defend myself. But let me say this..... I don't make this stuff up. It's in the papers and all around us. Kuwait can be a very pleasant country if one makes the effort and turns a blind eye to some of its absurdities. If I thought Kuwait was a hell-hole I would've left years ago. Sure it has its ups and downs, just like any country, but I live a decent happy life here. The things both Mad M2000 and I talk about are very real. They are not cranky complaints just for the sake of complaining, they are real threats to the comfortable lives we all wish to lead. As I've said before on countless occasions, we talk about the bad things BECAUSE THEY NEED FIXING!
BLEEP! The closing paragraph that used to be part of this story has been delted due to some factual errors that apparently gave someone lots of ammunition to use unfairly against the person in question 1.5 years after original posting. Go figure!
