what kind of question is that?

The little girl fake-singing the chinese anthem and getting all the applause, while the real singer (the supposedly not-as-beautiful girl) remained in the shadows really disappointed me. That one single thing really made me think that China is failing big time.

Both.

It has certainly highlighted many bad qualities about China, which may be positive for China in the long run.

Yikes, good question..

The CGI effects during the opening ceremony...Amazing, the country that pioneered fire-works 1,000 years ago, graphically enhanced the showing.

To be honest, I couldn't care less. Before the Olympics I had no opinion of China, and after the Olympics began I know I respect the chinese.

Both, though it should be good for it.

Well, they didn't help or hurt the image I have of China. I could see through the smokescreen (pun intended) that the Chinese government put up.
I have a deep respect for the Chinese people, but I have no respect for their repressive government.
