  1. For “Shane”: Thank you for this. The post on google drive cannot be opened/cannot be viewed as it requires a password, hence, since it cannot be deciphered/read much less evaluated by any human other than the password-owned, no points can be humanly given. Pls see instructions given at the beginning of the class. Marami pong salamat. -marichu

  2. Abusive Behavior Online

    The three examples I gave are comments posted on Instagram and Twitter posts of public figures – Korean idol Sulli, Korean hip hop artist Choiza, and YouTube influencer Michelle Dy. Although their posts appeal to the public, the comments posted on their accounts have no basis in fact. The comments are malicious and simply proliferate hate for them and are therefore considered abusive behavior online.

    Here are the comments posted:
