ABS-CBN Identifies Bots And Trolls To Its Online Franchise Petition

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The ABS-CBN Rank and File Employees’ Union and the ABS-CBN Supervisory Employees’ Union have denounced efforts to sabotage their online petition asking legislators to renew their network’s broacasting franchise.

The unions said the attacks came from bots and fake accounts and used obscenities, cuss words and repetitive names as user names. They said they are cleaning up their database right now and will relaunch with proper security to prevent another attack. (The site for the online petition has paused its counter, temporarily.)

In the meantime the unions released the names of the bots and trolls. (For lack of space, The Adobo Chronicles is unable to print the entire list. We also skipped obscenities and cuss words because we are a family-oriented site)

  • Donald Duck
  • Mickey and Minnie Mouse
  • Donald Trump
  • Rodrigo Duterte
  • Akosi Darna
  • Cardo Dalisay
  • Adolf Hitler
  • Osama Bin Laden
  • Magsara Nakayo Ng Tuluyan
  • Pastor Quiboloy
  • Shutdown ABS-CBN
  • Buggs Bunny
  • Sara Dhona
  • Bawal Lumabas
  • Agot Isidro Baliw
  • Karen Davila Devil
  • Ma Nok Na Poolah
  • Judge Judy

If you were one of the bots and trolls and we missed listing you, please add your name in the comment section. (No obscenities, please.  They will be deleted)

Duterte, Trump Sign ABS-CBN Online Petition

Who says Filipino Gossip Mongers More Prone To Coronavirus?

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – This article has nothing to do with WHO — the World Health Organization, but rather with the question “Who?”

Yes, we’re asking a question: whether Filipino gossip mongers (called tsismosos and tsismosas in the local language) are more prone to Covid-19.

Says who?

Well, according to some analysis of how Japan dealt with the coronavirus, it is said that Japanese speakers emit fewer virus-laden droplets when talking, compared to other languages.

It is a well-known fact that Filipino gossip mongers like to whisper into your face, or amplify their gossip and laughter like a loud speaker — both of which could emit large volumes of droplets that may contain the dreaded coronavirus.   Even face masks are rendered ineffective in blocking the contamination.

Taking his cue from the Japanese experience, Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque advised Filipinos and Filipinas to refrain from gossiping during this period of community quarantine when most home-bound people are more likely to talk about their next-door neighbors.

Avoid coronavirus infection. Refrain from gossip. You’ll contribute greatly to stopping  the virus’ second wave!
