The Philippine Cybercrime Prevention Act takes effect today, so I imagine I’m not the only blogger sitting in front of a computer this morning thinking “Hmmm… what can I write about today that won’t land me in jail?”
If you aren’t familiar with this new law and are wondering what all the hoo-ha is about, I have a reader-friendly recap right here.
I’m actually luckier than most because my blog also has drawings, so if I’m creative enough, I might be able to get away with some jailable opinions without having to use a single word.
So maybe instead of writing a regular post today, I should go over some non-verbal signals I might use in my drawings to show what I’m REALLY thinking when I create potentially libelous blog posts in the future.
So here we go… a quick guide to the Fab After Forty of the future.
(Remember this stuff, kids. Because this handy guide with drawing interpretations will self-destruct in 24 hours. :))
POSTS ABOUT POLITICS/POLITICIANS:

All jokes aside though, this is crazy, right??? The internet was never meant to be this way. So if you care, let’s do something! Write our senators. Sign a petition. Join the protests, online or offline. Turn your profile pictures black.
Because this Cybercrime Act, as it currently stands, is SO NOT FAB.
Let’s all fight the good fight for freedom.
Have a great (and hopefully arrest-free) day!
