Anyone want to help me clean up this ESL? There's a lot of stuff, but virtually every sentence has some garbling. And there are way too many "strikeout" jokes... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:33, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

It's poorly written and I have to admit I was inclined to nominate it for deletion but for its history here being longer than mine. Why do we need this article? Is a regular editor here from the Philippines? It's not on mission. ... Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:37, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
It is sad tracking the diffs on this thing. It started as a stub to dered a link, got filled up a little, though it had some silly bits. Then a new editor popped in, apparently, yes, a Filipino, and added a whole bunch of not-very-relevant history of the place, using a rather unique form of English and a similarly unique sense of organisation, mentioning the RCC and how they control the politics in every section. Sadly, very little about the Marcos dictatorship, which would at least serve to make it slightly on-mission. I suspect we should go through this with a hatchet and see if there is an RW article buried somewhere in it. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:38, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
I've started--more later if it doesn't get vaped. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 01:01, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
I almost gave up after the first section, typing {{delete}} is much easier than translating this into English. And, yeah, there appears to be no mission content, despite the fact, I guess, that there could be (the Marcos dictators?). ħumanUser talk:Human 01:43, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
This article reads like a bad opinion piece, with almost no citations for ANYTHING, (and even once citing dubious shit like Yahoo! Answers to back up their claims). I'm not saying 'delete the article', but whoever wrote this shit...... Jesus fuck.... TokenSkepticMagician LITERALLY SATAN 22:45, 3 December 2014 (JST)


Hello? I have no idea on Philippine history, but this is definitely not accurate. It really needs some cleaning. Eruhbuus (talk) 03:01, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Why don't you elaborate so your issues can be better understood, or even edit it yourself (if you want). <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 03:15, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, I have a few to deal with. I think we need more information about this country... Are there RationalWiki Filipinos in here? Eruhbuus (talk) 03:21, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
It would be good if there were. Generally, coverage of Asian subjects at RW is not great. That was one of my motivations for joining in here rather than just lurking. I have concentrated on what I know though which are subjects relating to Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. Cannot help much on the Philippines.--TheroadtoWiganPier (talk) 03:33, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Needs more info on history[edit]

Hello. At least I've added some useful stuff into this page. But I may need some colonial history about the Philippines in a more reasonable point of view. Can you at least find one? Eruhbuus (talk) 08:37, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
