Sigh. The shit I have to put up with. What is this guy on about? LOL! This log was taken from a Yahoo! Messenger conversation I had with the PinoyFootball.com publisher and group owner on Friday, 12 August 2011:
(00:08:48) David Pallasigue:: can i talk to you?
(00:08:57) Face: Fire.
(00:09:07) David Pallasigue:: what is your problem with the group?
(00:09:18) Face: I have no problem with the group.
(00:09:37) David Pallasigue:: why do you keep posting negative stuff
(00:10:23) Face: Please enumerate.
(00:10:33) David Pallasigue:: you know what im talking about
(00:10:43) Face: No, honestly, I don't.
(00:10:49) David Pallasigue:: you knon
(00:11:01) Face: What bad things have I been saying apart from that comment on Inez's profile?
(00:11:19) David Pallasigue:: i read your blog about that padrino systme
(00:11:25) David Pallasigue:: and now this
(00:11:28) Face: It's true.
(00:11:38) Face: Padrino system.
(00:11:49) David Pallasigue:: iwell if it was then i was showing favoriism towards you
(00:11:58) Face: Really?
(00:12:20) Face: Tell me, how much time do you spend in that group to know what is really going on?
(00:12:40) David Pallasigue:: i read everything thats posted in that group
(00:12:56) Face: You can only read posts that I have not removed.
(00:13:00) David Pallasigue:: if you have a personal vendetta against those british guys then dont include everyone
(00:13:15) Face: For how long in each day are you logged in to that group?
(00:13:24) David Pallasigue:: and for you to just quit without telling us?thats so childish
(00:13:39) David Pallasigue:: now you are sour graping?
(00:13:49) David Pallasigue:: we didnt fire you ok? you quit
(00:13:55) Face: I did say in an email that I sent you that if we were to continue with that kind of talk, I'm quitting, right?
(00:14:15) Face: That's why I gave you the password to the CMS.
(00:14:27) Face: I have no vendettas against anyone.
(00:14:35) Face: I just tell it the way it is.
(00:14:43) David Pallasigue:: if you quit you move on and stop talking cra about the group
(00:14:47) Face: Some of your guys kicked Inez out.
(00:14:52) Face: One.
(00:14:56) David Pallasigue:: well, i will find out who it is
(00:15:25) Face: And I can assure you, it was not any one who was not supposed to be an admin when we were all fine.
(00:15:47) David Pallasigue:: i cannot assume
(00:15:52) David Pallasigue:: i have to investigate
(00:15:54) Face: Oh, get real, bro.
(00:16:16) Face: When I left only you, me, Graeme, and Jack were admins.
(00:16:25) Face: Who among those people would do that?
(00:16:44) David Pallasigue:: well, im not here to talk to you about who kicked inez out
(00:16:46) Face: I know that Noel's already an admin. I don't think he did that.
(00:17:00) Face: Well, you should be here to talk about that.
(00:17:10) David Pallasigue:: im here to tell ask you, whats bothering you so much?
(00:17:22) Face: you were complaining about me bad mouthing you in a comment I made on her status.
(00:17:31) David Pallasigue:: you quit right? then move on coz we did
(00:17:53) Face: David. You cannot censor me on my own blog.
(00:18:26) Face: That thing you're complaining about is why I quit (and no, I make no claims that I was "fired").
(00:19:10) Face: You expected me to just fall silently after I know it was that padrino system you were running that got me to quit in the first place?
(00:19:42) David Pallasigue:: padrino system? i never had that ok?and if i did it was favorable to you
(00:19:50) Face: Ows?
(00:20:00) Face: I was your workhorse, remember?
(00:20:16) David Pallasigue:: how many times have you threatened to quit? and for the good of football i told you to stay
(00:20:24) David Pallasigue:: do i get anything from this?
(00:20:29) David Pallasigue:: nothing ok?
(00:20:33) Face: Ah, I did not threaten to quit.
(00:20:43) David Pallasigue:: but because of my love for the game i lowered my pride
(00:20:55) Face: Pfft. Nobody's claiming to be getting anything from this.
(00:21:10) Face: But really, how much has anyone given to this
(00:21:19) Face: who do you think gave more for this?
(00:21:27) David Pallasigue:: i know you have and we apprecaite that
(00:21:37) Face: Some appreciation you showed.
(00:21:44) David Pallasigue:: but you dont act ike a kid and just quit without telling anyone of us
(00:22:06) Face: Who's acting like a kid. I left quietly and I'm speaking through my own site.
(00:22:16) Face: Do you see me invading your group?
(00:22:23) David Pallasigue:: you sure did leave quietly without telling us
(00:22:30) Face: I did tell you.
(00:22:33) David Pallasigue:: without giving us a chance to look for another webmaster
(00:22:47) Face: Remember that message where Mike and I responded?
(00:23:05) David Pallasigue:: our understanding was for those british guys not to have anything to do with the website
(00:23:05) Face: I even said that I was going to help out the new guy if he wanted my help.
(00:23:18) David Pallasigue:: the new guys was the loader ok?
(00:23:29) Face: Or do you not read replies to your own messages?
(00:23:43) David Pallasigue:: you could have emailed me personally and told you what your plans are
(00:23:59) Face: You could have emailed me personally and told me.
(00:24:15) David Pallasigue:: i told you about some new guy that i was talking to that will help you load stories
(00:24:24) Face: What the hell man, am I supposed to be the one to do everything?
(00:24:54) Face: Yeah... and then you went on to say something about it being revealed when it was all good.
(00:25:12) Face: What is this group? We started out openly.
(00:25:16) David Pallasigue:: so whats wrong with that? our agreement wasn't concrete at that time
(00:25:22) Face: Everyone had a say.
(00:25:33) Face: Everyone had a listen.
(00:26:02) David Pallasigue:: i cannot announce someting when its not sure yet
(00:26:36) Face: Then you could have told me privately since I was going to be the one to work with the guy anyway.
(00:26:53) Face: i might even have been able to help you convince him.
(00:26:58) Face: But that's all moot.
(00:27:02) David Pallasigue:: didn't you say that when we have something palnned we should do it as a group?
(00:27:18) David Pallasigue:: thats what i did
(00:27:37) Face: You did it as a group?
(00:27:46) David Pallasigue:: i emailed everyone right?
(00:27:51) Face: Where was the group in that?
(00:28:11) Face: If that's what you believe, then why are you asking me why I didn't email you personally?
(00:28:25) Face: I responded to that group message.
(00:28:27) David Pallasigue:: because you were quitting
(00:28:34) Face: So?
(00:28:46) David Pallasigue:: you knonw what? it's useless talking to you
(00:28:50) David Pallasigue:: i gotta go
(00:28:51) Face: If I quit, the whole group is affected. That makes my quitting their business.
(00:29:26) David Pallasigue:: just stop sour graping...bye
(00:29:38) Face: Yeah. I'm posting this log on my site.
(00:30:11) David Pallasigue:: we cant stop you from posting on your own blog anyway right?
(00:30:16) David Pallasigue:: by all means do it. bye
(00:30:19) Face: No, you can't.
(00:30:40) David Pallasigue:: threats. thats all you are good at arielle
(00:30:42) Face: I thought you said "bye" already?
(00:30:57) David Pallasigue:: im glad you quit
(00:31:04) Face: Me, too.
Seriously, I'm happy I quit. Now, leave me alone.
Addendum: got the last word, something to the effect of had I not quit "they" would have fired me any way. Funny. I was never an employee. I never got paid for anything.
From February to July, I worked that website and that Facebook group approximately 10 hours a day, every day. That would have been around 170 days of labour. Without over-hyping my abilities, that would translate to 187,000.00 Pesos at a 1,100.00/day rate. I believe I deserve more.
All I got from this little adventure was an old Asus EEEPC 4G that I had to fix and get an 8G extended storage for; and a laminated ID card— which I designed, had made, and paid for myself anyway.
Fire me? Show me first how I was an employee.
