Responding to an obnoxious, er, "expat" in one of the Internet forums:

Nothing personal? That's easy for you to say. You weren't on the receiving end of such vicious barbs. But I can assure you that to me it really was very, very personal.

So you're an expat? Good for you. I suppose that next you're going to brush this episode off as a manifestation of your Western frankness. But let me tell you, in any language or hemisphere, the aspersions you've so carelessly cast were just plain rude.


  1. Hey Dom, where is this forum? Let me at 'em!!! Let me at 'em!!!!

  2. Ha ha, h'wag na lang. Tataas lang iyong presyon yung Adsense income nila.

    Anyway, one of the Dumaguete message boards.

    Shades of Scrappy-Doo!

  3. There's a dumaguete message board? :) Well, it takes all kinds, doesn't it?

  4. Oh, yes, mostly whiny lecherous old men with too much time on their hands.

  5. As an epilogue to this episode: 1) said "expat" was banned from the forum -- apparently he was rude to several other people; 2) considerate administrator took down "expat's" comments.
