Note: The service in question is Hane.PH!, with the URL www.hane.ph, which I find very catchy. From its homepage and title tags, its supposed to be a “Philippine business directory, built to build your business online.” Unfortunately, all it has right now is a homepage linked to sections that return an HTTP 404 status message, and a weblog that has been the point of conflict in this entry. Read on for more.
If you’ve been reading my blog since this morning, you would’ve noticed I’ve been engaged in active discussion in my previous entry, though a rather unintellectual one. Last night, I criticized the site Hane.PH! for attacking pinoy bloggers, suggesting that the Filipino blogosphere is filled with self–centered personalities. I take offense for such a baseless generalization. And even if the author had basis, to collectively label every pinoy weblog in a negative way is simply unacceptable.
If you’d take time to read the comments on my entry as well as his, I clearly stated the specific issues that should be addressed. Specifically, I mentioned two important issues: the generalization on pinoy bloggers, and his taking offense for everyone’s refusal to link to his still non–existent site. You can’t expect people to review a service based solely on hype and a promise, right?
Unfortunately, he has stooped down to personal attacks rather than discussing what I’ve pointed out. And on his recent entry, he has resorted to cursing to make himself feel better:
unbelievable.. very unbelievable.. you know what, youre right, no point having a discussion with someone who refuses to listen nor address the relevant issues.. as for me, i still have a website to finish to help Pinoy SMEs bring their businesses online.. too good to be true, i know, but i have done it before, and i am gonna do it again, Pinoy Style this time.. and no freakin f*ckin fortune teller like you who judge people (anti blogger) and their work (spam masquerading business directory) can stop me from doing what i love to help other business aspiring people around me by telling me your useless sh*ts and craps okay..? if you are going to criticize my work thru your stupid, nonsense blog, fine, for all i care alright..?
now move along, obviously you are just wasting my time and my godd*mn bandwith..
Sad. I take much offense in his tirade calling rebelpixel productions a “stupid, nonsense blog”, and I’m sure many others would disagree with his conclusion. It’s disappointing that in his supposed vision of putting Filipino SMEs online, he has to insult other people. If I were a small local company trying to establish my online presence, I’d think twice about putting my company’s name and fate in his hands. In fact, I’d rather build my own site, developed by local web developers, hosted by Filipino web hosting companies. I personally do not know this person, but based on his actions I know enough that I wouldn’t do business with him professionally. And based on his most recent comment, he certainly bought his way to pinoy blogging hell. I really think he just did.
