A Disturbing LinkReferral Discovery

It is not what you might be thinking. I am not about to cry SCAM! because I actually find LinkReferral a good way to boost my page views (something that I direly need since I just started blogging and my site is still short of many things. Additional posts, for instance. Harhar.) Besides, I am just a basic member so I am able to use their services for free. So what did I find out, you ask.

I was at the site earlier this day and I decided to use the search function that they have been informing me about through email notification. I first searched for the keywords which listed my site in the results. Then I got curious and decided to search for fellow Filipinos who might also be LinkReferral members like me.

I typed in Pinay, since I am one and would like to find other Pinays in the site. I'm thinking to maybe check out their sites and make friends with them. Guess what came out in the results list. There were eight search results, and out of those eight, two are broken links, only one is active, and get this, the remaining five sites are porn.

Now imagine how demeaning that is for a Pinay like me. I was really pissed. I couldn't do anything about it. All I could do is change my site description to include the word Pinay or Filipina, so that I can at least decrease the ratio of porn sites against clean ones.

What a crying shame. Here I am thinking that Pinays are treated as conservative women and respected everywhere, and there they are debasing our dignity. Bunch of lowly scumbags. *expletive deleted*

pero pag Japanese na nagpoporn ayus lang. hehehe. kase nasanay na tayo sa kanila na ganun talaga sila. hihi. eh gudlak diba. eh diba nga dati sa isang dictionary, ang description ng filipina eh, domestic worker. who knows what we'll be called next.

ganun lang talaga siguro kung ano ung majority na ginagawa ng mga tao. not that I'm saying na maraming pinay porn stars. baka sa keywords din na ginagamit nila, like Pinay scandal. taas rank nyan. hehehe

oh, that's sad. pero that's reality, marami na rin pinay ngayon ang nahohook sa porn, at dahil na rin yan sa mga ibang lahi. pero marami din dyan na pinay at pinoy na magpapatunay na dapat proud pa rin tayong maging pilipino

I mean to say that porn has the evil side of it, who is the devil that invented it?
