I picked the three of you because there are several similarities in all of your responses: idiocy, insensitiveness, colonial mentality at worst and professional social-climbing at best. I don't think you belong to the elites of the society so don't talk like you're way above the masses.
Why? Are you offended and insulted? Are you part of whom they are referring to?

Yes, I have to admit that they are quite harsh and embody insensitivity (not insensitiveness, for there is no such word). But their comments no matter how sad, are true. Wowowee is a program that renders the Filipino ignorant, lazy, and highly dependent to it and its ilk. He will have the tendency to stop helping himself just because a show on TV will give them money just to make a fool out of himself. This is not charity but exploitation. Why not teach a man to fish rather than give him fish that he would consume within a day? That way, you help him for a lifetime. But instead, you let him starve and turned him into a desperate individual who would do anything to make ends meet. Then you profit on his shortcomings.

I loathe Wowowee so much. I have so since it first went on air. I has not done anything to contribute to society. Yes it is entertaining to the masses. But it is a disgrace to the arts because it is tongue-in-cheek, shallow, and downright stupid. It deserves its reputation as pure rubbish.

Whatever you think another pathetic loser...I wish Wowoweee exists for the rest of your boring and miserable life.

You must be joking? Talk about Filipino trash! The show sucks and only for the brainless. Spare me the adulations for a show that didn't do much for the victims of the stampede inspite of the hype.
I really don't like the show but they help alot of people who died in stampede and the show help alot of distress OFWS. They help them more than the FAKE PRESIDENT OF CEBU which is she only give the filipino people a lip service.

Salamat po sa pakikiramay niyo sa aking kahirapan. Nakuha niyo pang ipabatid ang inyong pagluha sa aking salaysay, bagamat naaaninag ko ang sa wari ko'y may kaunting pagdududa sa panig niyo.
Hindi po sa akin ang ginagamit kong "computer" at "internet connection". Nakikisuyo lamang po ako sa aking kaibigan na mapalad na nanalo sa lotto noong isang buwan. Kung tutuparin niya ang kanyang pangako, marahil ay makapagpatuloy ako sa aking pag-aaral ngayong pasukan. Ipagdasal niyo po sana....
Haay, Naku! walang daw siya electric saan kaya niya sinaksak ang computer niya sa manga! Ay dios por santo. At isa pa kong hindi ka kakayod talagang mamatay ka sa gutom. Bahala ka mamatay sa gutom kasi tamad ka! Ako I was born to the poor family pero ng kayod ako kasi ayaw kong mamatay sa gutom.

That could be it. We have few Filipinos here. I seldom see any kababayan here.

You are welcome Ben Green. Why do you keep on sending your gf money? She is not even your wife.

Because I hate her former work and because I love her.
