Thread: Posting Plagiarised Work

  1. #11
    Do moderator's know who's work he stole? Would it be appropriate to inform the original writer? I know if somebody was stealing my work I'd want to know about it, and informing the original writer could get the group new members from the literary community. If the guy stole work to put in this website, then he is going to continue to put elsewhere.

    Wow! In this day and age you would think one would have second thoughts. It is so easy to find out if your work is legit or not.

    Why on earth would anyone do that?
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    Many people are living in the past. They simply do not grasp how transparent and interwoven the internet is. What once could be hidden is now revealed for all to see.

    I would assume to gain credit or admiration as if it was their own effort.

    Just a dirty feeling and not the good kind.

    Ha. Think I remember this. If so, not confined to wf and messier elsewhere. My impression, not for glory. More like an attempt to denigrate: contemptuous of the process, the places, the people. Trolling, kind of.

    I agree. The enjoyment of writing comes from your own, original thoughts.

    Wow, I guess it's a wake up call for all writers. Make sure your ideas are YOUR ideas. If you're going to pay an homage to something, you've got to put in the effort to give it your original spin. You ever notice that there is a very thin line between an homage and just, straight-out plagiarism?

    I guess people like the attention they get for passing good work as their own?
