Plagiarism: Makes me squirm

Gosh, this is my first week as a blogger and I read this disturbing article. Being new, I have not a clue how to find out if the system is still broken. Not that I have much in the way of original material that would interest these nefarious folk, but still...

It seems that, as more and more things go digital, it becomes harder and harder to figure out that is real and original, and to keep whatever it is real AND original! There seem to be folks who find their lot in life only to copy the works of others and try to make some believe THEY were the originators.


  1. Seems like someone will make life hard for the rest of us if at all possible. I think they should change the name of spammer to slimers. The name would be more representative of their heritage and occupation. I almost can admire the Nigerian general's wife who wants to give me $5 million over the endless amounts of email for fractional cents.

  2. I agree, wholeheartedly. Their headlong rush into "how I can make life hurtful or more difficult for almost everybody" makes me wonder if they'd show what they've done to their mamas. Y'know?
