Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -316031.38
I saw a link from Noel's Blog where a guy was furious about my predictions for 2007. He apparently took my entry too seriously that he sounded and assumed like a fortune teller himself. I wanted to elaborate more but I need to go somewhere. Just head over to his site and read his entry and comments.
Hey Mike! Why haven't you told me about this earlier? :P
(UPDATE 01/12/2007 23:30): Hohkay.. just got home. I'll repost his entry:
I've made up my mind about 2007: this is about as good as it gets. That said, I still lurked around to see what other people thought would happen in 2007. Some are plain annoying, merely stating the obvious. Pat Robertson predicts mass killing -- now that's Nostradamic.
In my lurking I found a blogger hamed Jepoy, who in his blog (designed to look like a Star Trek TNG dashboard) has a picture of himself in a strange superhero costume (Enteng Kabisote anyone?).
Needless to say, his predictions are remarkably troublesome. Not because they are morbid or fantastic (nothing impossible about any of them), but because they exhibit the kind of discrimination that scares me the most -- a prejudice, proudly worn, stitched together with class-based hate.
Among his predictions, he writes:
2. More Filipino idiots will be online, and would be jumping into international message boards showing how stupid they aer [sic], dragging us with them.
7. And the poorest of the poor will contribute largely to the continued growth of our population due to the fact that they have way tooo much time on their hands for their favorite pastime *bleeep* We should consider to export these whiners as human slaves to other countries. We'll definitely earn a lot since our country will have less useless whiners around.
9. More Filipino artist will confess that they are ghey.
In these three statements, he's managed to diss on the illiterate, the poor, and the homosexuals, not to mention showing contempt for his own race. I am troubled not only with the candidness of his bigotry, as he seems unashamed to hide his lack of upbringing, but at the fact that his predictions read more like mono-maniacal chest-thumping than a fearless look into a crystal ball. None of them are staggeringly original. He predicts massive cheating in this years election. Yeah-duh.
This blogger seems to agree with all this:
With twenty million Filipinos going online in 2007, he’s probably right. This is why I’m brutal to n00bs, especially n00bs in Philippine business.
Unpredictably scary people I'd never want to meet. This, or any year.
Not entirely the way I wanted to start 2007 :~) First off all, that post of mine was inspired by my all-time favorite internet super hero, Captain Obvious. This guy treats my post seriously and actually thought I was a guy dressed in a stranged super hero costume who makes a living out of fortune telling. OMFG R U SERIUS??? LOLOLOLO!!!!!11.
I would have taken this guy seriously until he said that the picture on my profile is me wearing a super hero costume (and even suggested it was of Enteng Kabisote). heh. I'm having thoughts that when he actually see me, i mean Vic Sotto, he might call him Jepoy! Coolness.
He questions three of my "predictions" and labeled it as an insult to the illiterate, the poor, and the homosexuals. Insult? That slave thingy was merely a satire of the truth. Idiots online are everywhere. Maybe if you're confined to your Photoshops and Macs you'll be clueless on what we're talking about.
And the homosexuals. What's wrong in admitting someone's gay? Got a problem with that? Maybe it's you who had a bad experience with these folks from the past that subconsciously triggered your reaction to my "prediction" #9? Or maybe you're gay? There's nothing wrong in admitting. ;)
Are you out of the country too long that you cannot even recognize Vic Sotto's face anymore? It irks me when some self-righteous individual barges in and started acting like a know-it-all savior of some sorts when in fact, they themselves left their own country only thinking about themselves. While the people they claim they protect suffer and suffer in this horrible country of ours.
Please, don't question the way of my upbringing because I rather stay in this country than go somewhere else. Unlike you who just blabbed and watched comfortably on your TV about Typhoon Reming's victims, I tried to help the people you claim I insulted. And it was not as easy as 1-2-3. And no, our school never had bullies since we were well educated than you assumed.
And about planting disrespect on this blog, at least I don't openly disrespect other people's beliefs.
Oh btw, don't believe everything you read on the internet.
