I'm sure that by now most of you are aware of the plagiarism offenses commited by a very popular FF writer from this section, who even received awards for her so-called work.  If not, you can find more information here: http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1522270
 
But I'm not here to rehash old stories.  Unfortunately, despite all my efforts to eradicate plagiarism from this section, it still persists.  Some members are finding Fan Fictions from other forums, changing the character names and reposting them here, without even a minimal attempt or effort to be creative.  And yet, they are receiving praise for this, because readers aren't aware of the situation.  One case in particular has caught my attention, not only because the "author" plagiarized multiple stories, taking credit for the hard work and creativity of other individuals, but also because she received countless compliments for her "writing style".  The moment I had indisputable proof of this offense, I decided that the first thing I would do is let you all know.  Call me vindictive, but I cannot bear the idea of anyone getting away with something like this.   
 
The member in question is yasu09, and below are links to stories supposedly written by her.  All the topics have now been closed, and in the last post of each, I provided the link for the original story.
 
 
I urge you all, please don't let this happen again.  Nobody should be able to get away with plagiarism for this long.  If you have any reason to suspect that a Fan Fiction may be copied from someone else's work, please do a quick google search on some of the story's text.  If you find a match, let me know as soon as possible, so I can take the necessary action.
 
Thanks in advance.

Thanks Rabia.. for takign action..I just cant understand what fun they get by doign this..they know very well the compliments the rewarding comments are not at all for them.. so what they gain? nothign but by doign this they cheat others and themselves...the readers who r cheated how much they r hurt and curse such cheaters thats what they gain.. really shameful that this is still continuign in our ff section...
 
I appreciate the efforts taken by the modz..seriously u guys give us hope that there are peopel to take note and this cant continue for long..

Omg...Rabia,

I don't believe it its so shocking both of yasu and kainath....I mean I loved their work and i always wow such good writing skills i feel like i'm cheated you know.....
fine you can take up some inspiration from someone's writing but cut-copy-pasting the entire thing and only changing names is what i don't like.....

to be true we all take inspiration from someone or the other at times its natural even I have done that once and even informed the author when I did that that I've taken some inspiration from your work coz it reminded me of something that took place in my life and reading this transported me back to tht time, but I din copy maybe somethings were similar but then the entire later part was mine...and i don't say that i'm cheating...hope i've not...please lemme know....but I've told the author earlier and also posted my story link to her...coz i just took inspiration nothing more..... but doesn't mean we copy entirely after that it is our imagination that works.....doesn't it ?? I felt like letting people know here....i dnt wanna be blamed later on...

I'm shocked truly shocked....shit man how could they do such....at least you cud have mentioned its c-c-p...huh now im just gonna read tht original work...frm tht link.

Thanks a lot for this post !

I just know she is a prominent member because i've seen so much of her around on geet forum, even interacted a handful number of times - its all the more disappointing, cause it never occurred to me that she couldn't have whipped something pretty decent out of her own creativity...

and i reckons its even more disheartening for the readers, who sort of bond with the writings and writing styles of popular members... and come to associate their persons with the fiction they have given...

thanks for the update rabia
