Hmmm.....I remembered when I was in university, some of my malay coursemates always used Indonesia as a reference when speaking about unity effort, i.e. indonesian chinese only knows Indonesian language, bla bla bla...

I hope these people still look to Indonesia's policy nowadays to see that the Indonesian government has realised its mistake in the previous policy and has now look forward to change its discrimination policy to a more liberalised one.

Freethinker, you never learn do you?
How many times have I told you NOT to copy and paste articles to the Forum?
You have just done it from the International Herald Tribune. Did you read the copyright statement in that website? It says -

Thanks for pointing out. Never thought it would violate copyrights issue when I have mentioned from which paper I copied it. Thought as long as I mention where the source is, it will not violate the copyright thing because you can easily read it from their website?

Anyway, I will provide a link next time around.

By the way, I followed the footstep of one of the famous Malaysian opposition politician who happened to be a lawyer, that's why I thought it is not illegal to do this?

Thought as long as I mention where the source is, it will not violate the copyright thing...Always read the terms of use of the content from the source website. It is very clear to me with regards their stand on their copyrights. We do not want to be liable to copyrights infringements - especially when it has already been spelled out clearly. Do note they said clearly that "you may not copy, reproduce".-
