Yep I am a writer myself on this forum and I would feel incredibly guilty. Not to mention you also run the risk by plagiarizing of infringing on copyright laws. Even when I am writing an essay for uni I have to make sure I properly cite and acknowledge the author's work from which I have obtained the research, otherwise you can run the risk of your paper becoming void. So this is a HUGE matter not just on this forum but in the world in general and there is a big crackdown on plagiarism now. Plus it is unprincipled.

K back now. Typing this on my phone so I apologize in advance for any mistakes and funky sounding phrases.

K so in general, plagiarism obviously is bad. As to why people feel the need to plagiarize, do they just want the adulation and praise that thu can get? It's beyond my comprehension. As a writer I know how difficult it is to write any given chapter, and if I can't come up with something then I simply put off writing the story until I can come up with an update. No issue and readers understand. I know one individual who plagiarized because she couldn't come up with a good idea and needed to update because her readers wanted one. That was just crap.

I didn't read every post in this thread but a lot of people suggested that IF should take some measures against this but I don't know how feasible that would honestly be. There are SO many people who wrote stories and come up with new ones everyday so someone individually checking through them, is probably not really going to happen. Therefore, I feel like it falls upon the readers to kind of always be on the lookout. I something doesn't sound like a writers typical style of writing or something, just check it out. A simple google check would be fine. And please don't misunderstand me, because I'm not saying everyone who tries out new writing styles is copying from elsewhere or something like that but I hope very one gets what I'm saying.

Its always always disappointing to see that that something you'be enjoyed, commented on, liked and PRAISED was not their own work at all and it rightly makes everyone mad. This particular writer, after reading the explanation for that one story, I felt queasy about ever reading her work again and simply stopped.

Wow this is a long post. And I know I'm rambling.

Once again though, to the TM, awesome post. I can point out more work by the specific author that was plagiarized but everyone gets the point.

When I read her work for the first time, I seriously had doubts with the language she had used in her FF's. I mean it sounded like some professional writer. I immediately went and checked her profile and I remember her mentioning that she's still in school. And I was like OH! A school going kid has such good language and vocab.LOL

I actually felt ashamed of myself.LOL

But then I got suspicious and immediately stopped reading her work.LOL


I felt cheated... I actually thought it was her own work... Sheesh!

It takes hours upon hours to come up with the right words, the exact feel for a scene a dialogue, constant editing and rewriting, developing of plots and characters, humanizing, demonizing, putting yourself in the shoes of rape victims, witnesses of death and destruction to come up with what writers come up with. Stealing some ones brain child is NOT on.

No sh*t there, Munchy!!

I frigging cry in my sleep when I write angst!! Shocked Embarrassed

And someone steals other's works and gets undeserving credit!! it is SO not on!!!

You took the words right out of my mouth!

Plagerism is just wrong..totally wrong.

How can you feel comfortable getting praises for something someone else did?Confused

Its just wrong.

Lovely and much-needed post btw! Damn, People still plageriseStern Smile

I wonder who plagerised?LOL


I can't believe this writer plagerised, I actually adored her work and to find out she copied it from somewhere else is pretty horrible. I don't think i'll be able to read like i used to anymore!Stern Smile Sorry if this sounds OTT but its the truth.D'oh
