RA10175 is more than just an online libel law.
It also deals with Cyber-squatting, Internet fraud, Identity theft, Child pornography and others.
Yes, RA010175 needs revisions and some passages are extremely jologs, but to repeal the whole thing is just plain counterproductive.
Let's go for revision rather than repeal.

Hopefully, this episode teaches the voting public to take elections seriously. Hopefully, this little situation comedy reminds the voting population that we deserve better and that we must expect more from our public servants.
I suppose, if only for this, Sotto deserves a little bit of gratitude.

On a connected note, bat kaya hindi si Pnoy ang hinamon niya ng bukasan ng dollar account, e si Pnoy naman ang major character sa istorya ng impeachment niya?
He ranted about how the vengeful Haciendero President used and abused his executive powers to persecute a hapless, airconless, diabetic Chief Justice, yet he shied away from a no-holds-barred bank acount duel.
Nabackground check niya na kaya si Pnoy at nalaman niyang walang dollar account ito? Di niya naisip kasi kapos ang imagination? Natakot? Nahiya?

And then another: Thwuck!
Suddenly, crimson was flowing from the woman's forehead. The rabbi turned his bewildered gaze from the bleeding woman to the confused crowd. The crowd parted, Jesus drew near, and he saw a woman about to pick up another rock.
"Nay naman, wag ka na kasi sumali!"

I don't get pro-GMA people. I just don't.
Well, there are those who were able to benefit from her one way or another. Some of her cabalens visited her in St Lukes and declared their loyalty -- loyalty stemming from a dole-out culture. Silang mga nabigyan ng salapi, scholarships, basketball courts, waiting sheds, pustiso, etc.
Siyempre, yung mga politikong nakadikit pa din ke GMA ay ibang hayop ang mga yun. Maaring nakinabang sila ke GMA o me alam si GMA tungkol sa kanila (or both).
Then there are those who are pro-GMA simply because they're anti-Pnoy. It's a stupid way of going about it, but here we are. People should realize it's not always an either/or situation. One can actually be anti-Pnoy and be anti-GMA at the same time. The maxim "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" is something that you use in war, methinks. In the pursuit of good governance, it shouldn't be as simple as that.
I rooted for Aquino during the last election. The operative word is "rooted," past tense. I stopped rooting for the guy when the Comelec declared a winner. After that, I decided to give the government the benefit of the doubt. I would have done the same thing regardless of who won the election. There are people who are still wearing their campaign shirts, still smarting from the election results, and it is through this lens that this present government is being appraised.
So far, wala pa namang nag-akusa ng pagnanakaw sa gobyernong ito, not even made-up ones. Kadalasan, personal na pambabastos ang ginagawa. Nandiyang tawagin ang presidente na abnoy, autistic, bakla, panot, etc. Pati playstation dinamay.
We gave GMA 9 years, what's wrong with giving this government 6 years?
