Do you believe that when you write your information should always be correct?
On other websites I see and read articles that individuals posted without checking facts.
Yes, unless it's an opinion piece. Even then I'd think it's good to back up the opinion with examples of why you feel that way - a way to let the reader follow your logic. You may not have to go as in depth, or be as specific for an opinion piece, but it all comes down to believability. That's not really a word, but anyway. If we can't trust someone to be accurate in one article, why should we trust the rest? (This is different from articles regarding new discoveries, however.)
yes i do, my friends told me that we shouldn't, to avoid troubles in the future..but somehow it just doesnt seems right..its feels like cheating..even though for good reason
Off course, the information should be correct and verifiable from other sources. If incorrect information is provided, the reputation of the author suffers and no one would take the writer seriously.
Losing reputation online is death knell to an author. No one can afford to lose one's reputation as a reliable writer.
We do agree with you.While you are giving comments on some standard topic, it should be ensured that you are accurate and the information provided by you tallies with the fact. Giving the judgemental views and guessing answers is not only harmful for the people desirous of ascertaining the facts but will also be affecting on the writer and his image. So one should be accurate while writing something. But it is not applicable on opinions which may differ from man to man.
i think most of the time,i would like to write correct information.
i dont like telling a lie.sometimes,when you write some fake information,it's difficult for you to remember.when you lose your password,its hard for you to remember.you will feel sorry to write the uncorrect infomation.
haha~so i think write the correct information is much better.
I think if one is going to assert facts, then yes. One should be accurate in the presentation of said facts. The unfortunate reality is that facts are not always presented accurately, or are sometimes twisted or slanted to support an argument, or chopped up. When reading ANYTHING, before we accept anything stated as factual, we have to do our own research to validate it.
Slanted websites should always be read with some skepticism. Daily Kos for example which leans left. Or the Huffington Post. They may use facts in accurate ways, but not use them in genuine ways if you know what I mean.
