People (and things) you shouldn't criticize, part 3!

I'm doing a part 3! I can't believe how mainstream-hipster I am! O:
And once again, all of these are OPINIONS! Read at your own risk; everyone of us has their own stand anyway. Just an eye-opener. :)

1. Sen. Tito Sotto
I bet you have already heard this in my previous entries. Plagiarism is done today by millions of people - it's just that the senator wasn't that lucky that he was in the public eye.

Anonymous: Evolution from Pastime to Protest

I'm here to do a review of the recent 2012 movie, "We Are Legion: The Story of Hacktivists", as well as give my opinions and observations of the widespread Internet 'legion' known as Anonymous.

Ever since the Cyber Crime / Online Libel had been implemented in the Philippines, it was only then that Anonymous was brought up to mainstream media. And the same thing goes for every government around the world that tried to 'take away the internet' through various forms of censorship, leaving freedom of speech only for the rich and famous.

Difference Between Being Professional and Being Personal.

Before anything else, I am forewarning you that this is not any form of libelous article nor it is a complimentary article. It was made entirely for being an analytic opinion only.

I am sure that many of the folks swarming around the internet are aware of Sen. Tito Sotto's plagiarism act, where he translated an American President's speech into Tagalog / Filipino and delivered it during a hearing of the RH Bill. Many netizens weren't happy, and as of course, grammar Nazi's and the like. And in fact, he had more internet memes than Lito Lapid or Mayor Alfredo Lim combined. This is really...creeping me out.

My point is: what is wrong with translating?
