Filipino Fakers Malaysian Fornicators

If you are in a foreign land, you better be careful what you write and post about! You could be BANNED FOR LIFE from collecting on any pay-per-post or pay-per-review site --- and if you are on fiverr, you could have your internet privileges revoked --- you won't even be allowed to purchase a sim card!

Filipino bloggers don't hold a candle when it comes to down and dirty Malaysian bloggers like Alvin Tan, who with gal-pal and sex video star Vivian Lee, recently got bailed out of jail. Lee described his eight-day prison stay as "not bad."

Back on August 21, Alvin, whose real name is Tan Jye Yee, 25, and Vivian, or Lee May Ling, 24, filed an application to strike out a charge under Section 298A(1)(a) of the Penal Code made against them for uploading on their Facebook a picture and comment which ridiculed Muslims and Ramadan.

They are seeking a declaration that Section 298A of the Penal Code is not consistent and contradicts with the Federal Constitution and is legally void.

The couple is also seeking a declaration that the law, which they claimed can only be enforced on Muslims, is inapplicable and cannot be enforced against them.

The charge was that they had allegedly uploaded a picture and comment of themselves eating bak kut teh (a pork dish) with the greeting Selamat Berbuka Puasa with bak kut teh (fragrant, delicious and appetizing) together with the halal logo which were likely to cause religious enmity between people of different faiths.

Tan and Lee were also charged under the Sedition Act with making a posting on their Facebook, 'Alvin and Vivian - Alvivi.' The couple was also charged under subsection 5 (1) of the Film Censorship Act 2002 with displaying pornographic pictures.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is taking down what he calls a system of creating false online review for products and services. The reviews are mostly written by people in Philippines and Eastern Europe who earn $1 to $10 per fake review.

"Hello... We need someone to post 1-2 reviews daily on sites like: Yelp, Google reviews, Citysearch and any other similar sites. We will supply the text/review... We are offering $1.00 dollar for every post."
On Monday, he settled cases with 19 companies that included $350,000 in penalties after a yearlong investigation into the fake plaudits sometimes called "astroturfing." The term is based on the synthetic grass used on sports fields.

Some of the writers had the nerve to defended their fake reviews on websites challenging them! One female blogger was stripped of her blog...

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
