the lowdown on the Beta version of – guidelines on RSS – and the announcement of the “Austin the Hip Monthly Post”
You’ve seen the ads (if not scroll down), you’ve heard the hype being artificially built up as only a blogger can, and now we bring you the “simple” link. This year’s anniversary present to future J’accuse readers who still don’t know what they are missing (either because they do not get it or because they cannot get in) is a simpler (much simpler) home page address for the blog. As my favourite ad character would say “Simples” (Alexander Orlov the meerkat found exclusively at and not

RSS Feeds

A few guidelines for the tech savvy. The (hereinafter referred to as “the akkuza site”) address is in Beta. All it is for now is a mirror pointing you to the content of That means that unless you use the automatic “Subscribe RSS feed” link at the top right corner of the main page of the blog you will have to manually input “” into your RSS feeder to add this site to your reading list. It’s a bit complicated (but not that much unless you are Austin Sammut in which case it doesn’t matter ’cause you’re “against blogs” anyway) but you will (hopefully) only be able to point your feeders to the akkuza site after the 10th of March when we transfer all content to that address. A round of applause and encouraging slaps on the back go to voluntary tech advisor Mr SL for his invaluable help on the switch.


The ‘Austin the Hip’ Monthly Post

Lastly, expect some goodies from a series of guest posters who will be contributing a long or short post celebrating J’accuse’s 5th anniversary. Also we are hoping to attract a permanent guest poster to transform him into a rubrique and revive him from his temporary absence from the net. In addition to the guest posts upon invitation we are proud to announce the “J’accuse Austin the Hip Monthly Post”. In an effort to encourage more and more people to start blogging (and discouraging the “against blogs crowd”) we are opening the doors of J’accuse to the general public. It is a public soapbox sort of thing where we invite you, the reader, to send in a post (max 800 words) on a topic of your choice. Management reserves the right to choose the best post every month (no slanderous, libellous or personal arguments – and danny, easy on the wine).

  1. might be some fun discussing this Gem….

    It’s No Fault of Yours that You Don’t Know About :

    “I find it hard to accept that the prime minister might have known of the affair and still allowed Musumeci to contest in his party’s name, putting electors in a position where they were voting for one thing and getting another.”

  2. Yes. The recent shit-stirring has had an unfortunate side-effect for the PN marketing crowd. It’s one thing to sell “Taste” as an election winner and it’s another to discover that what J’accuse and others were saying all along regarding the opportunist selection of candidates might have been more than speculative hunch.

    When we say that parties no longer care about content but only result we also mean it about the trendy “umbrella lists” that have featured in recent elections. With regard to the particular shit-stirring we will repeat the question ad nauseam: WHY NOW?

    As the saying goes in Maltese… he who spits into the air…

  3. Will be interesting to see the reaction to these side-effects….. can already see some attempts to limit the damage.

    It’s like watching a chess game “computer vs computer” …. we already know the outcome but it’s all about the moves.

  4. Sounds appetising and may remove my sober (?) impression that this blog is primarily an intelligent (hi on iq somewhat less fulsome on eq) amorphous- testing ground-side-kick for the indy contribution rather than a veritable instant intelligent on-going platform for discussion over issues, as they arise, be they trivial or essential, as it promises to be.buon lavoro and, more importantly loads of fun

  5. @ Danny – Gbin – dan blog – mhux l-Ghagda ta Nies li Jridu Jimitaw lil IM Beck u juzaw hames mitt kelma flok wahda. Fil-qosor ahjar …bhad-dbielet tan-nisa.
    @ Jacques – imbasta konna nisimghu kemm hu kwistjoni ta “taste” jekk il-votant jogghbu jivota ghal partit ta Glenn Bedingfield u “Manwel Cuschieri’s brother”. Dak iz-zmien hadd ma hareg bi skoss riklami jghidilna f’dawn l-affarijiet kollha da parti ta kandidat Nazzjonalist….ha nghidlek mhux taste u flair…iktar waste u slur….

  6. @ Sully ok ok like peppi’s discussion prog u mean, so ok …

    even if i prefer the long and tiered skirts that unravel layer upon layer of desire as tension mounts with the promise of an oasis made for parched….upps sorry sully ok ok… short and sweet, yes i think i got it…like this is black or this is white undinese or notts couty type…sure…fine…that will be fine…straight to the beef, no beating around the bush, which gets me back to the matter of short skirts…oh the wine the wine…

  7. Now it’s JPO’s turn …. again !?

    It is turning out that those outside the cabinet are really just pawns at this stage. Seems like now they really need someone to direct the orchestra …. JS Bach(k)?

  8. Hello sully,

    Apologies for a cryptic style … so may I rephrase as follows:


    Thank you for your kind suggestion. In fact I will stick to a 186 word limit unless our kind host decides on an even lesser quota.
