At first I don't know about this jejemon thing in our country...until I've been informed through the show I've watched on t.v., It is now the downside of technology...nowadays, some kids or youth were found not only texting messages (before we used to abbreviate the words) but now, they're making it more complicated by adding letters or numbers to their messages which are not important and makes it more longer. According to some people I asked...jejenism is dividing the youth instead of uniting them which causing a communication barrier, they claim that it doesn't affect their studies but whatever wrong habit they feed their brain can train them to unlearn old ways like correct spelling and one father and pastor said it will not do anything good to his kids. As for me I'm against thins jejemon thing! I'll not practice this kind of texting. So my fellow Filipino mylotters...What can you say about this jejemon thing? are you a jejemon buster too? Why? thanks for the response.

Jejemon and jejebusters and I thought this ones are cartoon shows and i am really amused to realized that it is the new lingo of the teens in the texting world. To be honest it sounds interesting but i don't want to be influenced by it and join the new forces. I rather stick to the old abbreviation things and do my own thing...they are difficult to understand. Or maybe because I am growing old that is why I no longer follow this kinds of trends. Teenagers are just having fun times and i respected that because it's their rights and freedom. Their creativity is very funny yet technology wise they are hot now.

jejemon vs. korean hip hop  - which one would you prefer?
better pick the right one!
[b]3Ohw phOwh eVeR1yBhOodY! jejeje! i LLyK tO knOw moR3 bOut u, PwfoH. jejejejeje! -typical jejemon[/b] what the ----?! why are there so many people of these who became jejemons? it's like they're back to ignorance! uneducated retard! why are they multiplying? i've read article about this.here's the link: http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/insideLifestyle.htm?f=2010/april/30/lifestyle4.isx&d=2010/april/30 “The jejemon as it is now is already associated with bad things like the youthful degenerates of society, mostly the people below poverty. People already find them ‘corny’ or ‘jologs’ because ironically,they(the jejemons) try to look cool and ‘in’ or ’scene’, but all in futility because humanity as a whole do have an innate tendency to diversify, yet always wanting to imitate our peers.” i don't like them!how should we stop them? it's like an epidemic that can easily harm anyone! i found it really funny and at the same time really really disgusting by this thing called as jologs-inator! http://kalokohan.guissmo.frih.net/jologs.php i think other people there who were not familiar with this thing might wanna try it for themselves! well,if you think you can handle it!

I also saw this on television. I don't usually watch t.v. but while I was eating, my parents were watching and the program was about jejemons and jejebusters. It was the first time I've heard about it. I was curious what it was and listened while I was eating. I was really surprised about it. I didn't really like what they do. At that time, i thought that they just wanted to look cool or to attract other people's attention. I didn't really get what's the purpose of texting something with numbers and other characters. I admit that I sometimes text trying to shortcut things but it's not something like how they text.

This is interesting. I myself am not Filipino but I have friends who may be interested in this, as they are Filipino. I am extremely interested to know what their answers and reactions to this will be, and appreciate the fact that you have allowed me insight into the pop culture lives of another nationality's people.

Hi Becdmd! I took another course, second course actually, last few years. So I had to share an apartment with college students that were younger than me, around 18 to 22. And I was 27 that time and I am also a mom. My point is, I have nothing against the youth that have their own way of expression or language. It's just that sometimes it's not appropriate. Like, when I texted them, they would replied with all those 3, h or j added. I could not understand what they were saying or really wanted to say. And I had to ask twice or thrice, before they would text normally. And it was so funny for them. But I think that's very disrespectful and annoying. And I wish they could put their energy on learning other things than just being a jejemon. I don't think it's cool or an art, because in the long run, we are going to loose the respectful normal way to converse with others. (^^,)

i'm none. i don't really mind jejemons. it's their thing. but if i were to choose between being a jejemon or jejebuster, i'd prefer to be a buster. jejemon style of writing is really hard to do. and annoying too.

I watched this topic about jejemon last Saturday and it's a very funny thing. Here's a scenario: If you are in trouble or there is an emergency and you need to text someone who you know can help you, do you think he would understand the way you texted him if you are a jejemon? Do you think he will be interested to read that kind of text? He might just laugh at you and ignore your text. I for one is a jejebusters. That's why mobiles are created for short messages not for complicated messages just like what the jejemons does. Don't make simple things critical, that's stupidity not creativity or artistic.

When verbal communication with others, we are free to use the means to facilitate communication was verbal. Whatever its name, any how, if it was easy to understand another person, not a problem. When written communication, we must abide by prevailing spelling, either nationally, or internatonally.
