Hien, I totally understand...I even wrote to CNN (twice) and USA Today (once) to get permission to use(reproduce) something I found there. On CNN's website it even says that in their rules. The incidence of lawsuits has gone through the roof on copyrighted material, especially on the net.

Did you actually write that or was that copied from somewhere?
If it's copied, it's always good to provide the source (URL or/and author) at the bottom as it is after all written by somebody. Plagiarism is on the rise on the internet.

Abang Hien, what would happen if the author has flaws in his/her theories? I should recommend you to watch a film but i forgot its name...sigh

Quoting cikusang

what would happen if the author has flaws in his/her theories? ...

You don't have to worry about that, as you are only quoting what he/she said. Anything that's incorrect, put the blame on him/her! But if you used the quote to prove/support something you said, and the source was flawed, you'll most probably be blamed as well for not verifying the facts before quoting.

Abang Hien, i would yo rather saying "if that particular view is incorrectly stated, we may bring the climax of it onto the air - let the voices to determine the ultimate truth!"

Hows your dumpling, anyway

I think one would need ALL the information on a subject to be able to form our own opinions. If all we have is half the information, is it really an educated opinion?

I didn't know there was an actual holiday for DragonBoat. Happy DB Day everyone! We had our first race of the season last Saturday, so we kinda celebrated. As Viv mentioned, our festival here in Montreal is at the end of July, so we'll be celebrating then, too!
