My phone is being spam

So its election time again for Malaysia and coming May 5th Malaysian will vote on who will rule the land for the next 4 years, well 5 if they wish to stay longer in power. From now till polling date every candidate from both parties are trying to woo their votes with any way they can. They might not smooth talk votes into what they would like to do for the community or what they have done for the community, instead, they let a bunch of geeks to do the work for them. Here's what I mean...

We were always reminded by this guy time and time again to always use the correct language and not rojak what we speak and write. But somehow the geeks in his coalition didn't get the memo.

Janji

I truly believe whoever sent these SMSs to me, and maybe to thousands others like me, was a geek. Here are some facts to back me up:

  1. These geeks were programmers as most of the content were camel case. Or at least a form of camel case using uppercase words.
  2. They must have been using a bot to send these automated messages. It will be ludicrous and even silly to think all these SMSs were sent manually from a single phone.
  3. Geeks likes to annoy people with technology. Especially if its something in your face like SMS.

BN DUN

But what really bug me the most is that the SMS simply doesn't contain anything important! This might not be a geek thing but more of a Malaysian thing, paper education. How is it useful to know where the candidates got their degrees from? I would rather hear the person talk and tell me his/her story. So a schedule of him campaigning or giving a talk would be much more useful.

BN Parliment

It will be ludicrous and even silly to think all these SMSs were sent manually from a single phone

camelCase

So if any of you geeks who sent these messages, I ask nicely to stop doing it. Your better off spending your free time doing something useful, like playing with your toys or sewing your cosplay costume. And for the knuckle head who hired these geeks, you've lost my vote with this silly and childish messages.

...you've lost my vote with this silly and childish messages.

who-will-win

Update: My phone is still being spammed by the geeks in BARISAN NASIONAL. Screw you BN, I never signup to receive all this junk and you've just violated my rights to use my smartphone in peace. I hope you lose this time around!
