Default Dubai 7 Stars or 9 Stars?

This quite interesting...to me anyway...

http://dubai7stars.blogspot.com/

is a blog that has been around for a while posting info on the Dubai boom/collapse and related Dubai property info. It's coverage is generally links + cut and pastes, where there is original text it is fairly poorly written (if you are a native English speaker anyway) and to my mind has a negative slant/agenda.

In the last week or so a "Mirror" blog has appeared:

http://dubai9stars.blogspot.com/

They have intentionally poached/duplicated 7stars page graphics and layout and are publishing well written copy with a much more positive/pro Dubai content...

There is a blog war ongoing between the two, if you take the time to read you will see ...but who is behind the blogs?

Wish I knew but a lot of work has gone into creating and maintaining the 9 stars blog. The only press arcticles displayed are those with positive overtones. Nothing negative is highlighted. Could it be sponsored by Dubai Inc's PR apparatus? If so, they are doing a pretty good job of discrediting the original 7 Stars effort.
