To me as Desi the BUMmer, I would demand that any serious Socio-Political (SoPo) Blogger should identify himself/herself in his/her blog posts, especially when the writing makes allegations on wrongdoing like CORRUPTION, against the subject/s in the posts.
In this context, I won't give much creditability to the author of www.t4tbh.blogspot.com, which has been hogging media headines for the past week or so since its birth with serious allegations of corruption by two Selangor Exco members, and even an oblique accusation that the DAP leaders be held responsible for the death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock. Now itself the subject of much inrerest and questioning, I hope the Blogger would reveal its public face for all raeders to see; otherwise, be deemed a coward like a sheep in wolf's clothings.
Therefore, I do agree essentially with the Menteri Besat Khalid Ibrahim's call on Bloggers to report any wrongdoing or corrupt practices within their knwoledge to the relevant authorities to give credence to their good intent as a civic-minded Malaysian Citizen.
Khalid suggests bloggers come forward with corruption allegations

SHAH ALAM: Those with information on corruption should show a sense of responsibility by reporting the matter to the authorities, and not just exposing it through blogs, said Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.
He said the state government welcomed such reports to prove the validity of the allegations of corruption.
"If there is corruption, the public should not just publish these activities in blogs but must take the matter to authorities.
"I encourage their efforts, but sometimes, stories in blogs are not always 100 percent true," he said in a news conference after launching the 2009 Selangor Book Festival here today (25 July).
Abdul Khalid was asked to comment on an allegation in a blog which linked a Selangor exco member to corruption activities, and to circumstances surrounding the death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock.
The blog at http://www.t4tbh.blogspot.com yesterday claimed that the activities involved more than 300 small projects worth hundreds of thousands of ringgit, in the state exco member's area. (Bernama)

INTERNAL AUDIT ON STATE ALLOCATION FOR MEMBERS OF LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY
SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Government has directed a state-wide internal audit on the spending of state allocation by members of legislative assembly.
The internal audit will among others ensure that the spending of allocation comply with the procedures set by the State Government. “This is our way to assure the public that the accounting of the state coffers is continuously monitored,” said Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, The Menteri Besar Of Selangor.
The internal audit team will also study the procedures involved with the intention for improvement.
The auditing will begin as soon as possible at the Petaling District. A report by the internal audit team will be presented to the state within a month, after which, it will be made available to the public.
On another issue, the state has also appointed leading human rights lawyer Malik Imtiaz Sarwar to act for the State Government in the inquest of Teoh Beng Hock. Malik will also be representing the state in the Royal Commission of Inquiry.
The state is determined to ensure that the rights of the late Teoh, his family and other state officials who will be testifying at both proceedings are protected at all times.
