silence is approval

Yesterday marked an event-less event: International Bloggers' Day for Burma:
"International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4..."

Tactically, I think this is an ill-advised strategy. You know what? Let me be even and direct on this one:

What a bassackwards attempt to make a global voice resonate.

It would've been a lot more effective if everyone posted the above image and then actually posted. You see, what if the supporters of the cause actually demonstrated some real knowledge over the event? Wouldn't that have been more powerful? A global cacophony of voices sending out support!

I had been lead to believe that silent contests ended right around fifth grade.
