... AND WHAT THE ANTI-GOVERNMENT BLOG COUP4.5 HAD TO SAY
"A desperate bid to save the election or a genuine jumping of the gun?
"Either way, there are questions to be answered, including why they've now gone back on the announcement and why there is such an ongoing incompetency handling what is clearly a sensitive matter."
The blog then went on to release the IP addresses and photos of people it claimed to be "regime trolls who are on our blog as many as 300 times a day during work hours, posting anonymously, attacking Fiji citizens and promoting Fiji First, Frank Bainimarama and Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum."
How it identified the anonymous or found their IP addresses, it did not say.
But Coup4.5 should "join the club". I've lost count of the anonymous anti-Bainimarama blog comments posted by trolls on my blog page, many of them like you talking about Muslim plots" to take over Fiji and creating doubt, division and anti-Muslim feelings by attacking Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and other Muslims holding official positions..
At least the so called "regime trolls" have names. They do not hide behind the anonymous
unreferenced stories and unsubstantiated rumours you post on your blog. You do not even publish the names of your publishers, even though many of you live overseas.
But what we do know is that the Qatar Foreign Minister and Al Nusra would have been aware that Fiji has a Muslim population (who also prayed for the soldiers' release) and that Fiji's Attorney-General shares their faith. Fiji should be grateful for its multi-cultural and multi-religious heritage.
