I couldn't be bothered to read the exchange but I gather that the gist is around editorial standards vs censorship?

if it were the case, then Wei Ling is making mountains out of molehills.

even my letters to ST Forums get edited as well for the sake of brevity and coherence.

sometimes I tend to ramble but if the editors deem it necessary to reformat and edit those letters while at the same time retaining the thrust and spirit/intent of the letter, I don't think it constitutes "censorship" as alleged by Wei Ling.

drink some liang teh and cool down I'd say .... mai pin rai nah .....

Why Dr Lee's column was not published

But there was another issue as well. Upon checking the accuracy of a quote she cited from British Prime Minister David Cameron, and other further checks, I found that almost three quarters of the additions had been plagiarised.

I had learnt from experience with Dr Lee's columns that her sources needed to be double-checked.





Woaaaaahhhh ...... some serious allegations lei .... :o .....

It means only peasants plagiarise but if you belong to an imperial clan, you can call it anything you want.
