Profanity on social media: good or bad?
by Stacy de Jesus August 12, 2017

Words, not just profanities, become harmful when the intention is to attack or harass someone.
Millennials are enamored with filters. Some of us slap it on photos like crazy. But when it comes to words, we don't hold back. No filter. Some say they resort to cursing because only through this can they truly express their deepest frustrations.

War has come to our conversations
August 29, 2016

Whatever happened to healthy exchange of views?
Something is happening to our democratic fabric. Malicious, hostile and offensive people are ripping it apart, tearing at it.
In public places like the social media and comments sections of news websites, these people insult, call those they disagree with names, and, the crudest of them all, threaten them with violence! In the young history of social media in the country, this is definitely a frustratingly low point.

Putang ina mo.
Sana ma-rape ka. Sana ma-rape buong pamilya mo.
Mamatay ka na lang. Mamatay kayong lahat.
Hurts, doesn't it?
Now imagine waking up every morning and being told these things again and again. You get texts, private messages, and even posts on your wall.

Editorial: The real threat of fake news
September 18, 2017

THE marketplace of ideas still stands, but its foundations are under attack.
For nearly four centuries, this metaphor has represented the belief that in a free, honest, and transparent competition, the best ideas always win. In democratic societies, freedom of expression, which encompasses freedom of speech and of the press, draws its protection from that belief.
These days, the threat of fake news makes that belief seem naïve.
