He’s Completely Wrong


If you guys thought we were done with Robert Blaire Carabuena, think again. The last I heard of this man was when he 1) apologized to Saturnino Fabros, and 2) when he was publicly heckled, and was brought to the hospital. Now, he’s going to jail.

Remember the Third of October


As a person who lives on the Internet throughout my daily life, I cannot state in words how sad, disappointed, ashamed, and disgusted I am with our government for the massive oversight that is the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.

E-Libel Law: The Saga Continues


This will be a short post, and will probably be a very opinionated one at that, so caveat emptor and all that jazz. Today is the first of October, and we have two more days to storm the Supreme Court with our prayers. There are proper avenues of complaint, and if everyone were to try to show their displeasure with the law, there’s a small chance – small, but a chance is a chance – that we can make a difference.
