WHEREAS, rumor mongering or gossiping is a Filipino habit that has been a detrimental force in the
development of our society. Rumor mongering or gossiping can start a fight between members of the
community that results in the humiliation or demoralization of one’s personality;
WHEREAS, rumor mongering or gossiping has been one of the major causes of misunderstanding and
fights in our families, and even in small communities such as the barangay. Gossiping not only affects the
person targeted, but also the people surrounding them;
WHEREAS, Article 26, Chapter 2: Human Relations of the Civil Code of the Philippines states that:

states that “though they may not constitute a criminal offense, said actions may produce a cause of action
for damages, prevention and other relief.” Said article further states” A civil action may be instituted even
if no crime is involved and moral damages may be obtained.”
