Ha! Vincent Ha of Gushcloud contacted me in September about this

The Like everyone else, I've been reading about The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Two Hashtags between #FaithinGushcloud and #FaithinXiaxue. (I'll leave it up to you to decide who the hobbit is in this scenario.)



I have to admit, before this week, I've never heard of Gushcloud. I have, of course, heard of Xiaxue and Nuffnang. (Full disclosure: I run Nuffnang ads on this blog.)

The name of the Gushcloud CEO, Vincent Ha, however sounded familiar, but I couldn't place it at first.

And then I remembered I may have received an e-mail from a Vincent Ha once. I searched my inbox and found this:



Ha!

So three months ago, Vincent Ha of Gushcloud asked me to be a "contributor" for a new site called MustShareNews.com.

I was flattered.

But now that I've read about Gushcloud, I'm hurt I wasn't asked be one of its "influencers". I guess I'm not pretty enough.



Or have enough page views.

With only 398 Facebook "Likes" and 52 Instagram followers, I am in no danger of being accused of buying "Likes" or followers.

Anyway, I replied to Mr Ha that I can't contribute to his or other sites since I work for The New Paper as a full-time SPH employee.

I was also disturbed that he got the impression that I had come up with The Noose TV show, most likely from this blog post: Speaking of The Noose, see the PowerPoint that started it all.

I want to make it clear that I did not come up with The Noose. I only created the PowerPoint for it. My then MediaCorp colleague Prem Anand created The Noose.



After sending him my reply, I never heard from Mr Ha again. (UPDATE: He has since responded after this blog post was published.)

Which is just as well, I supposed.

Otherwise, I could be on Team #FaithinGushcloud now.

Ha!

Truth be told, I would rather be on Team #FaithinXiaxue. Not that I have anything against Gushcloud or Mr Ha (except that he may not think I'm pretty enough).

The thing is, I'm not afraid of Gushcloud, but I really don't want to get on the bad side of Xiaxue Baggins.

She can be more terrifying than Smaug.
