    Hi There,

    Contrary to popular belief I do not live 24/7 on this site.

    I do not condone nor accept any form of racism, hate or use of foul language here.

    I have put up a sticky post in the Dumaguete Forum where I ask forum members to report posts whic are offensive, abusive or spam.I never recieved such a report from you so I have no idea what posts you are talking about.

    when I have time i read through posts and delete what I think is not appropriate on this forum. But again I am not here 24/7.

    We are having huge power problems in Dauin at the moment, so I am way behind on real work trying to make money to pay the outrageous electric bill :smile:.

    This is a open and free forum, that means you will always have loudmouths trying to get attention, it is a lot of work moderating this and I am trying my best to keep it clean, but if for some reason you are not happy with the work I put in here, I will gladly refund you any fee you paid to be a member here.

    As to your request of me going through and delete all your posts, I will decline that request. I do not want all the threads you participated in chopped up missing half the posts thus leaving replies to missing posts. It would be a mess. When I do my moderating, I delete posts and replies to posts that include the body of the deleted posts, and this would not be an option here.

    Dane,
    Keep up the good work! If you didn't do it who would?
    I for one think you are doing a great job and applaud you for it.

    Yet another reply

    I have several PMs hanging in my inbox right now, yours included, as I said I do not have too much time for hobbies (which this forum is) right now.

    I do find it funny when people start making demands and asking for actions to be taken fast etc, from a free and open service.

    No

    Yes, you are quite right. You get what you pay for. You just proved that again. So sad.

    Yes, you proved again that age does not correlate to maturity in certain cases.

    Now I urge you 2 to think before you post the next post.

    Not only about yourself, which to me it seems you do a lot...

    But think about if the post you are about to post has any value to OTHER members than yourself.

    I am getting bored with deleting posts all day, I do have a lot of real work to do today as well.

    It seems easier to stop you from posting altogehter if all you wanna do is throw doo at each other.

    You are BOTH over the line.

    This is where the new reputation system comes in handy...

    Any post in this thread from this post on that is not of interest to everybody on this board will be deleted.

    No more bitching about each other or about how I run my site.

    Simple enough?

    Once again it appears to be the inability of the Philippines to enforce it's own laws that is at the root of the problem. My perspective goes something like this:
    People in South Korea love vacationing in the Philippines. It's relatively inexpensive and easy traveling to a warm and beautiful place. Developers in South Korea see this as an opportunity. Some follow the rules and set up legit businesses in a legal fashion, others have discovered that they can "grease the wheels" and get permits to build in protected areas or otherwise skirt around the laws including immigration laws. The news is, it's not just people from Korea that take advantage of corrupt government officials in the Philippines. Just about every ethnic group does. It may be that there are simply more tourists and immigrants coming into the country from Korea than other countries recently thereby getting a lot more attention. The more finger pointing that is done towards national groups the more attention that is taken away from the real problem of getting the criminals out of the government. Easier said than done, I know.
