Top 50 SPOT.ph Comments of 2013

Why yes, we do read them.

 

(SPOT.ph) If we had to pick one word to describe the things we find in the comments section of SPOT.ph, it would be "diverse." There’s a lot of passion in there, which is sometimes so misplaced that it boggles the mind, but we love every single letter that you type in the box. We appreciate the fact that you took the time to leave a message-any kind of message-because life is short and you spent a few minutes with us. We’re grateful.

 

And so, we’ve rounded up our top 50 favorite comments of the year-statements that challenged us, made us think, or had us falling off our seats in laughter. Direct quotes from real readers, straight from their hearts!

If he did the act in a place not dedicated to religious worship, say Roxas Blvd, then he won’t be liable for Art 133 because the element of place is absent. Freedom of speech is NOT absolute. The law may be harsh, but it is the law."

Helen of Tondo on Christine Bersola-Babao's "Being Gay" article earns her flak; Critics accuse her of bigotry

 

40. "I dont care if it is just a temporary hold. It is a GROTESQUE TRAMPLING of the separation of powers and the right of the executive to produce legislation. The Supreme Court should never under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES block laws unless they are in clear and direct violation of the Constitution. After years of debate and endless rewrites it’s pretty obvious that isn’t the case with the RH Bill. Instead the ’great and the good’ on the bench have gone along with vague petitions that are nothing more than emotive religious drivel droning on about the sanctity of life and the threat the bill poses to the Filipino family. Pleaseee!!! Presumably these bold upholders of the law were cowed into craven submission by threats from the Catholic Taleban (oops Church) or they want ’revenge’ for past perceived executive meddling in the judicial domain. Pathetic, sad excuses for ’justices’"

37. "KRIS, if you really love your son, you will not announce to the entire world that his father allegedly made sexual advances and just settle the matter quietly and legally. If you really love your son, you will not put him in the spotlight by saying he is intelligent and can testify for you or defend your cheap accusation. If you really love your son, you will show him you love him truly by protecting him from this horrid media blitz. Stop being selfish Kris. Truly love your children and protect them. Stop announcing to the world your cheap love problems. Because of the media thing, you have NOT protected your children, instead you have done the opposite...you have opened them to ridicule and insult because of you and your actions and your life."
