Okay, Whats Going On???

Posted: May 1, 2009 in Uncategorized

Okay it has only been a fewweeks since I haven’t gone to YAP.

And then I go back there a couple of days ago & ask three Qs. (It didn’t even get a whole lot of answers).

But then I come back today & saw two messages regarding what has been going on in YAP while I was away. Then I waded through a few more of my unread email & see at least one more message saying almost the same thing.

So what’s up with YAP???

I may have to try sending an SOS message to Jonas one of these days to. Anyway interesting stuff like this always seem to happen more often when I am away from YAP. And so I always tend to miss many of them. And on a few occasions I come back to YAP and open my mouth & mind there. Then I see innuendoes (did I spell that word right) about how certain YAPPers come alive when I was away or certain YAP Q & As mysteriously arrive interestingly enough when I am away. It blows my mind sometimes. And sometimes I can’t blame certain YAPPers from putting more into what’s really there just because they want to find a few missing pieces of this one huge puzzle we call YAP.

Anyway, the hot topic right now that I am talking about it how certain YAPPERs have been talking a whole lot of crap about the Philippines & about FIlipinos. But we all know that that has been happening since we can remember. So all we can do about that is to report content that we see are really hateful attacks if not complete fabrications about Pinoys if nothing else.

And secondly we have this brewing war between the YAP expats in the Philippines & certain Filipino YAPPERs. And apparently, because I have not been in YAP for about three weeks, nowit has become uglier & uglier & uglier.

And so I ask where are all the peace-loving YAPPERS out there?

And as a YAPPER or as a member of this YAP Family or community of YAPPERs what have we done to help find a resolution to this X vs. Y thing.

I want to say more but really I have to go. And to the people who have answered my Qs, I thank you guys & I hope there are more answers to come. And to spotter who asked me about my prediction on the Battle of East of West, just like in Manny’s last fight, I really can’t say. But this one I have said before & I will say again, I would know for sure after the first few seconds/minutes of the opening bell. And as we have seen in the Dela Hoya fight, we pretty much know how that fight would go by just watching the first minute or two.

Although if I am to give my fearless prediction. Manny Pacquiao in a knockout win in the middle rounds or if the fight miraculously goes the distance, a win for Manny by decision.

    Hey Japs, you were wrong. And I was wrong. Everybody was wrong. Pacman proved us all wrong by finishing the fight on the 2nd. Ugh.

    As to the expats vs locals, I can not even say that with certainty, not having met the protagonists. Truth to tell, it is fairly easy to posture as an expat trashing the Filipinos, just like one Yapper who continually trashes Manny pacquiao. I will not mention his name here, he might become popular – – – maybe this is what he wants to achieve in the first place. The antidote to this is to ignore. That way, we are not burdened with the war, and if they happen to be real people fighting for their beliefs, the fact that we did not answer to refute what they said is showing respect for their opinions. Win-win, I think. Or sometimes, I answer without having to refute a statement, nor attack the answerer, but answer only to provide some balance. So that some readers who are less informed about the Philippines will not think the Philippines is the pits.

  2. Japs says:

    Doc J, you are right Manny proved us all wrong, I was thinking he would do it within 5 to 7 rounds, even Roach was wrong when he said the 3rd round.
    Oh well, it was so short, we had to watch it twice. And still it felt too fast.

    Anyway you are correct. I also have noticed a guy or two who bashes Manny withn YAP, as well as a few others who say not so nice things about him that could be descrbed as just constructive criticism, so that’s okay.

    I normally do not respond to hate comments, especially racial & other commonly made discriminatory comments. But on a few occasions I did. But when I do, I do so with extreme caution as I do not want to come out as being in the same boat as the hate speaker/writer. I respect other’s opinions but I often draw the line on matters that cross hatred & prejudice. And on those few occasions I might have to air where I stand as well.

    But I agree more often than not, the best way to combat this, is to ignore–which is why I am a very picky answerer & if we really must go on the offensive. We should just report them. Or yes, we can go over in forums such as this one & let’s just bring it on.

    I too underestimated Manny Pacquiao. Honestly, I feared for him. Hatton when on TV all by himself just looked bigger and taller. But like what you guys said, he proved us all wrong. I should have known just by looking at how buff Manny’s body is. Just look at his serratus anterior compared to Hatton’s. Manny truly was well trained and prepared for the fight. WAY TO GO MANNY!( Just hope he doesn’t run for president….sheesh)

    hey Japs, it will take a bookmarker to go back to your 360, hard to find when Yahoo Answers changed the linking to 360!

  5. Japs says:

    I’m back for a few minutes. Thanks Beetlle & Isayy.

    >Beetlle, you & me both.

    >Isayy, LOL, I know most times I do not even want to YAP or Y360 when I am experiencing the kinks in their system.

    Catch you all later.
