Greetings abrenian.com bloggers, dedicated, regular, occasional, and passers-by!
For the past few weeks, I personally have not been able to keep up with the growth of this site. Just lately abrenian.com reach more than 100,000 hits and counting. I anticipate that the traffic will increase as we approach a very crucial elections in 5 months. As with the past elections, abrenian.com intends to be again in the forefront of bringing informations to our online users.
This would means greater responsibilty that I alone could not handle.
Therefore, please allow me to take this opportunity to let you know that Atty Juli Dizon is coming on board to join me in making this site a better place to mingle and to exchange ideas.
He will act as a Co-Administrator. I specially requested him to define our Goal/s and Objectives and to draft the ground rules of engagement, in this site, toward a more meaningful, substantive and respectful exchange of opinions/ideas among all bloggers. As a Co-Admin he will work with me in moderating any and all discussions/postings/entries in this site.
Chief Architect of abrenian.com
Good work Sir SysOp…I, too, believe that proper guidelines must be set by the Admin. to regulate the “animated” but sometimes “no-holds barred” exchange of ideas and opinions/views in this site. It is my observation that many of your avid followers here are intellectually-gifted and highly-motivated people, easily discernible not only as to the level of their individual learning but more so on their unique way of thinking, they who can argue/debate on every issue objectively and with purpose, for the betterment of our dear province. It is my humble opinion that these are the people that our province needs. The rules of engagement/guidelines must be clearly defined, so that only truthful information and honest-to-responsible comments are made, not the misleading, below-the-belt, politically-tainted tirades by some. I’m an avid follower of yours Sir. I’m an Abrenian.com fanatic. And it’s my wish, may your tribe increase!
WE ABRENIANS WELCOME WITH OPEN ARMS YOU ATTY. DIZON TO THIS CYBERSPACE WEBSITE.
SYSOP, you have made a good decision of getting ATTY. DIZON on board as a CO-ADM. of your
illustrious public ‘idea-exchange’ establishment.
ATTY. DIZON, you will hear from many of us using ‘NOM de PLUME’ names for obvious reasons.
WELCOME AGAIN, SIR.
DR. LEO TUASON.
Atty. Dizon will surely be a great help on administering this site: a.) clarifying legal doubts/misconceptions, etc., b.) directing the discussion into a more fruitful, reasonable and exciting exchange of ideas, c.) laying on the table topics for debate/discussion, d.) compiling the “results” of the discussion/debate into a “summary report”. Thanks for the effort.
As a starter, please tell us in a layman’s term if what words/information that are not supposed to come out from our big mouth in order not to be sued by any private individual or in trouble with the government?
Are you allowing the disrespectful or criticism of our ungrammatical construction that lead to our embarrassment and destruction of our dignity or self-esteem? What about insinuating words that might discriminate our origin of ethnicity/tribe? Lastly, can’t we use some biblical principles once in a while in order to denounce the wickedness of our corrupt politicians in particular and other enemies of the society in general?
Thank you very much…….and
Merry Christmas and Happy 2013 Year to everyone!
