VIOLATION OF PRIVACY POLICY

Just Like blogging, Forums are one of the most visited sites in the internet. I usually visit forum sites and read threads and discussions of my desired topics.

Sometimes in the past, I need an immediate fund, I want to withdraw money from my PayPal account without having to wait for 5 to 7 working days. I Google the keyword Paypal to Gcash or PayPal to Smart Money and a thread from Pinoymoneytalk forum leads me to a thread about PayManila and so my problem was immediately solved.

This is one of the positive effects of forums.

But the other day, one of my community member from MyBlogLog left a comment in my blog. He raised his concerns about a certain forum site, Pinoyden.com. I clicked the link and read the thread and this is what I found

A newbie member under an alias of shiangtao posted a new topic. He quoted Edz comment at yugatech blog. Included in that topic was Edz name and private information, his emails and blogs. He purposely search for Edz information and posted it at the forum area. He was successful in this thread as he gains a lot of responses which is negative for Edz reputation. I know right there and then that this is a clear violation of privacy policy and I look for the moderator of the site. He was there participating at the forum under the name of AED.

I immediately signed up and posted my comment. You can read my comment here under my alias Red, I reminded them of the sites rules and privacy policy. After posting a comment, I wrote to the admin/moderator to raise my concern. Here is the screenshot of the message.

I knew that Edz was taking this matter seriously and to pacify him, I informed him that I already send a complaint letter to the moderator to clear the matter.

The following day, I checked the site and noticed that they already removed Edz private information. I also received a message of apology from the Admin/moderator. 

If you will notice, he has quoted a red line which states that they cannot monitor the forum. This is a clear alibi. Hey Mr. AED, if you will notice the screenshot of the post, it says 2 thanks from Reuben and AED. And look after you removed Edz site info, the 2 thanks turn into 1 thanks and your name is gone? What happen? You also participated in that thread and you just removed your comments, may I know for what reason? To make your excuse real? that you are not participating in that thread? I won’t buy your alibi mister because I click your name in your comment that’s why I get to your profile to send you a private message. Masyado ka tuloy obvious. You yourself enjoyed the thread and maybe very happy for the active response and traffics and remember you’re doing that at the expense of Edz reputation. And to you Mr. Shiangtao, be man or woman enough to reveal your own info before posting other people’s info and don’t be so lame pathetic. Try to post some decent topic out from your own brains and stop quoting from other people’s comments. It makes you a stupid, talkative nonsense poster who wants to be famous by degrading others. Wag kang intrimitido!

At yung isa pa under an alias of weibkreuz who is claiming that he’s from tarlac said “guys tga tarlac din ako at ung school ni edizon tongol n yan dun ako graduate, patay sakin yang edizon tongol n yan pag nkita, bubugbugin k yan, he3 pag nduty sa hospital nmin yan teterminate k na agad”

haha! talaga lang ha? sure ka kaya mong gawin yan? Sige uwi ka dito sa Tarlac sabihin mo address mo at pupuntahan ka namin ni Edz. Subukan nga namin kong kaya mo nga syang bugbugin. Pare yung yabang ginagawa yan di sinasabi. Dahan dahan lang tau sa pagsasalita kc di naman natin kilala yung mga taong pinagsasabihan natin eh.

This is really a gross stupidity on the rise 🙂 nakakahiya.

(sigh…deep breathing…my nebulizer please…)

PinayKeyPoint Link Page

I just finished modifying my link page. If you are looking for my blogroll, you wont see it in my side bar because I already transferred it in my link page. I created that page 2 months ago and I left “This page is under construction” note but I noticed that it has already comments so I decided to update it.

My link page has a list of MyBlogLog Community members and I posted their profiles and avatars.

Just log-in using your yahoo account. This is the account you used when you are chatting thru Yahoo Messenger and your e-mail address as well.

I created my first email address in 1999 and internet during that time is very rare. I just have to create an email address because I have nephews in US and we have to communicate. I am using AOL mail and AOL Messenger then. My browser then was Netscape Navigator.

My link page shall contain my blogroll, my most visited links and resources, my community, my portfolio and contacts from different social communities. I just finished uploading my blogroll and MyBlogLog Community members. Other links will be included soon.

If you’re a MyBlogLog member and you want your profile to be included in my link page and blogroll, just add me, join my community and add my link in your blogroll and inform me by leaving a comment in my link page. Please remember that you must add me first. I have requests of link exchange but after I added their links in my blog, I visited their blogs and noticed that I was not included in their blogroll so I removed them.

I never noticed it in the past but my fellow bloggers told me about it. Well yes, it’s unfair and a one way ticket. Being a blogger, we have to know the basic rules. If we want to have a thriving community, it must be a mutual effort. I make it a point to drop a regular visits and comments to my community members and blogger friends in my blogroll. By doing such, you will see that you are not just adding friends but creating a community as well. When somebody joins your community, we take responsibility to keep in touch with our members. We must send them at least a community message to make them feel that they are important.

My stay in the blogging world was no different when I was a union organizer. We can only create active members and leaders thru constant follow up and meetings. I have requests here to organize a blogger’s community here in Tarlac and I am really taking into consideration if I will push it. My resignation from work was triggered when I was included in the hitlist released by NOLCOM in 2004. Most of the names in the list are now gone and tagged as “Victims of Political Killings” I am a mommy of 4 kids and to slowdown from labor struggles is not cowardice in lieu of life’s preservation. It really breaks my heart to abandon my members especially now that they are facing many labor union issues. These are the reason why I am still hesitant but maybe I will have to start again.
