It all depends on whose ox is gored

Dear mouse,

This is the proverb used by Martin Luther (1483-1546)which is the view of the justness of the outcome of a dispute depending on which side you are in.

Garapata: Hey, Ca t, masyadong malalim. Pakibaba para makuha ko.

The Ca t: Simple lang yan, sa mga away-away kahit sa blogosphere, kakampi ka kung saan nakita mong ikaw ay nasama sa isang naapi.

Garapata: Paki isplika nang medyo maliwanag.

The Ca t: Kagaya nang mga awards at mga titles. Kung kakampi mo ang blogger, hindi mo papansinin yon, pero sa inis kang blogger, yon ay pagyayabang.

i would like to make a comment, i hope you will not misinterpret this comment. on my first year of marriage, we live in a community where there are some pinoys. then we became involved in their activities, then conflict arised and drama ensued. a group that was in harmony, got dismantled and became three factions. my wife and i split immediately from this faction. then i decided to move out of the city and bought a house, in an all white community, and we are the only pinoy in the area up to now for the past 20 years. we never involve ourselves in any pinoy activities. then i discovered this "blogspot" thing. during the time when i was diagnozed to have cancer of the thyroid, i wanted to have an outlet. then i discovered the "blogspot" outlet. my two boys, who was born here in the states, cautioned me. they were telling me that i am joining again a group of pinoy. i told them, it's okey because i don't see anybody and i don't talk to them. yes, on my first six months of blogging, i had encounter a comment in my blog that i retaliated back, and some people on the blog got testy about my reply. from then on, i only blog what i read and created a mini newsreel in my blog so that i will not be getting any testy bloggers giving comments in my blog.that is history.
QUESTION: Why can't we (pinoys) live in harmony and get the spiriti of "Bayanihan" in a "Barangay" setting?

sorry---- ma drama ba ko?

frat,
this is not pinoy thing. even in some Asian people,they have this too.

There are some people who are successful in group activities that some outsiders would like to join.

The blogkadahan is an example of that camaraderie. It started from personal mailing list and evolved into a group blog.

No one among us felt that we are part of the elite. Everyone felt the joy of friendship and that they have to share that outside the berks mail. Thus born the blogkadahan.

Managing a group is not exactly easy for the administrator to do since he is also busy with his bread and butter.

Thus, the brainstorming led to the postponement of the acceptance of new members until some rules were set in order to protect the personal information of the berks members as well as to make the posting hassle-free.

It seems some interested and disgruntled bloggers took this as a snobbery.

We are not an elite group. In fact we welcome the formation of group such as ours.

But without humility and the feeling that all should lead and no leader makes their project fall flat even before its launching.

Now there is a "mutiny going on" as to whom it is directed. they cannot name her because the person herself is responsible for the creation of a community where newbies can introduce themselves.

These very same people are using that and yet, they criticize the person who may have launched their blogging career in the blogosphere.

Oh well.

it is very frustrating when people just jump into the wagon without realizing first the real score of the issue; and, judging people with haste and collectively branding them of derogatory terms.

it is so disappointing when all the while you thought they enjoy reading your blog, but rant in their own blog their ill-feelings towards the blogger they often visit.. ano tawag don?.... oo nga pala "Oh well"

Bong K,
Parang mga bata yan na pinabayaan nang
maglaro sa bakuran tapos babatuhin pa ang mga puno ng mangga.

Tsinek ko ang pinoyblog, masipag silang magpost ng kanilang mga blog para mabasa ng ibang bloggers. PEro yong atake nila ay walang pasintabi sa nagbigay sa kanila ng pagkakataong makapaglaro sa bakuran.

Ngayon gusto nng ibang pumasok sa kabahayan (bogkadahan)dahil hindi sila tinanggap, ang bahay naman ang binabato nila.

Nasabi pang ang tataas nang pinag-aralan. Di nalang sila maglivejournal.
