This is what I have in mind right now....
OBSERVATION FROM VANTAGE POINT:
After few days, less than a week I guess, all tensions had subsided and it seems like everything is back to normal, hopefully. It looks like nothing had happened while bleeding hearts and insulted dignity are the only evidences left, obviously everyone is sharing the same feelings until now.
This war is shorter than the Six-Day Arab-Israeli war in 1967 after its declaration to engage in the act of blog war against a single enemy but with a reckless and dangerous mind. In the name of peace, the supposed blog war was put to a sudden stop before the first shot was even fired. As I understand, there was actually no peace pact achieved or a formal ceasefire declared but only withdrawal of forces back into the jungle, and for sure his crooked ideology still remain. Is it a stalemate? I'm thinking who will wave the white flag first?
"As he hurt too many of our kind around world and he never even care to say SORRY even to only few, he is still at war in the area of Afghanistan and some areas of Iraq. In my opinion, there is a mistake in giving forgiveness so easily without clear term of "surrender" from this enemy. It may send a wrong signal to others of his kind. A manifestation of apology must be posted "- bizjoker
His psy-war operation is to weak. (or is he?) We should have engaged him first in "fierce fight" to show our might and let him cry for ceasefire, after all he's the one started all of this mess. We should have let him ASK for a talk for HIS surrender option before we offer it. Arrogant as he is, he did not even bother to mention about his intention to apologize, so he is not worthy of forgiveness. Otherwise this thing will be repeated again and again.
In his PEACE entry, in the Bilang panghuli paragraph he mentioned about him being not afraid of any legal responsibility since he believes it will never be accepted in court as a legal issue, which only shows his gross ignorance of the law and all the legal processes. Ironically, in this entry, is he really humbly offering a peace?
I would say ,"Yes sir, a class suit can be filed against you for your baseless and libelous entry and don't be so stupid to say that the judge will drop the case for it will hold no water before the court. The National Beaureu of Investigation recently filed a libel case and other cyber crimes against blogger Crazytolits before the Department of Justice. Crazytolits has been so ellusive that not even a single trace of his real identity can be found in his blog page, but the NBI agents are just smart enough to apprehend the real guy red handed. Crazytolits is way far intelligent than the you are, but not to the rule of law, how much more a specie like you. Bisitahin mo ang site niya nang malaman mo sino ang kinakalaban n'ya. He stopped posting entries as of June... for obvious reason."
Another point, PEBA has recently earned its SEC registration therefore making it a juridical entity with rigths duly recognized by law. As it protects and promotes Filipino bloggers' talents, I guess, it impliedly protects also the Filipino bloggers' welfares for being bloggers themselves. PEBA has the locus standi so why wave the white flag first? Correct me if I'm wrong at this point.
I have now a lots of "what ifs".
What if next time it will be the house of PEBA that will be directly under attack by this kind of specie of blogger? What course of action will be taken and how? What if he is just to hard to move and he will keep his libelous post? What if he will keep on insulting most of us, not in anybody's chat box but in his own webpage where he has all the advantages? What if this thing is repeated again by someone of the same specie? What if he strikes again but this time not against OFW but just against one of us? What if he just simply ignore our wishful thinking and go on with his stupidity around the blogosphere?
We need to protect the house and make it stronger in order it can protect us as well. I am not suggesting a class suit be filed immediately as there are hundred ways to kill a cat (kasabihan lang ha). If this will be repeated, we can boycott his blog, block him from our chatboxes, and promote a shame campaign until his inbox gets flooded by violent reactions from millions of readers for whatever article he will post and until he cries and beg for peace talk.
But of course the final solution, as always, is to file a class suit against the erring blogger for crime of libel and other criminal offenses arising from his blog entry. Once filed, let the course of law drag him around in his daily life..everyone knows it's hard to have pending case and derogatory record in our NBI and Police clearances.
The frog with croak of death will just leap from one blog page to another, annoying each and everyone of us and soon enough it will be a part of our daily blogging life until we get used to his irritating style.
Until an article of apology for OFWs is posted, he has no space in civil society, in society of matured and educated persons...ano akala niya..kunya-kunyarian?
