"Fake news" is a crime in the Philippines. I don't care that it is commonly used to imply something else. Questioning, claiming or implying someone is posting "fake news" when it has not been posted with the intent of intentionally spreading misinformation will result in an immediate ban when I see it, temporary at first (with varying lengths depending on the severity and context the words were used in), permanent if it continues to happen. I wish the orange clown in the US had never used the words and emboldened other leaders to criminalize free speech but this is the world we live in now.
There is a right way and a wrong way to say you think information is incorrect or wrong. Saying "fake news" in the Philippines means "this information was posted with the criminal intent of purposely spreading false information to confuse people or spread propaganda". If this is not what you meant to say then don't use the words "fake news".
With that being said I know that Mikal didn't use it in the legal context and was questioning if the information was accurate and current. The ban shouldn't be the standard full month for a temporary ban. I will lift it but everyone should please keep in mind the above two paragraphs. I don't really enjoy being a broken record and when I see those two words continuously being used it gets a bit irritating.
