PPCDSPO Forgets To Setup Profanity Filter For Auto-response Messages, Hilarity Ensues

As you know today is the inauguration of the 16th president of the Philippines and the first to ever hail from Mindanao, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. To celebrate the momentous occasion, the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office set up an auto-response system where anybody can get a customized message from the man himself, using the hashtag #PartnerForChange.

The problem is that the folks behind the PCDSPO did not put in profanity filters for the usernames for the people that used the hashtag, which has resulted in several profanity-laden messages seemingly endorsed by the 16th president.

Hopefully the PPCDSPO learns from this embarrassing mistake – after all, we all make mistakes on the first day of the job.

Thanks to Yves Gonzalez for spotting this!
