Blog Herald’s Editor is Changing… Why?
Posted February 10, 2007on:
The Blog Herald which was recently acquired by Splashmedia is now changing their Editor In Chief Mr. Abe Olandares. I was sad to hear that my fellow Filipino who puts the Philippine Flag on blogosphere when he took the position of Blog Herald as an Editor is resigning from his post because of Personal reason. One of which is the libel suit He is facing quoted as follows.
” I run a fairly small start-up web hosting here in the Philippines. One of our former clients runs a forum that we used to host. Several members of that forum were throwing vindictives against a their former employer. That employer sent us a demand letter thru their law firm demanding that we terminate the site or be charged with libel as well. The client moved out from us the following day. However, the employer/complainant has now filed several libel law suits against us claiming that we are the owner of the domain and the operator of the site. The site is still up and running though hosted somewhere else, the domain was also transferred away from us. Still, the complainant is alleging we should have enforced some sort of regulations or control over the content when it was still with us.
Apparently, all they wanted is money and this case is just of one of their many business gigs. “
In response to this revelation of Abe, J. Angelo Racoma has suggested to help him financially by giving some donation via Xoom or paypal.
Here’s a Xoom link. Contributions can be sent in via PayPal, credit card or e-check:
Xoom has a minimum of $25, though. Amounts smaller can be sent via PayPal at theblogherald (at) gmail (dot) com.
Mark of Splashpress Media has also given an incentive to contributing:
Let’s try this: for the first 10 x $100 contributions made via the paypal that Angelo mentioned – theblogherald (at) gmail (dot) com – you’ll get a link in “friends” for the rest of 2007. Just specify the link & text you want with the payment.
This is the simple thing I can do to send the news to others. But what bothers me is the thing that there are some opportunist there who want to throw stones on a tree full of fruits. This is really harassment which might happen to us also.
On the otherhand , my congratulation to Mr Tony.
