Enforce Research Ethnics!

I try to not comment on every English error I find, but sometimes I just have to share (and need to post about something). This photo is from the Korea Times (Mar 5, 2008) and they corrected the online version.

I remember a few years ago when everyone was chuckling over George Bush's "Fool me once, sham eon you. Fool me twice, ..., ..., won't be fooled again" remark. Someone commented at the time that Bush probably couldn't imagine feeling shame himself so got confused with the proverb. I imagine, with plagiarism rampant, that Koreans may have similar trouble thinking about ethics. Or maybe, they are trying to blame Warda, the Egyptian researcher who collaborated with Han Jin (more in the former link above).
