Does fucking suck when someone pinches your shit and publishes well with it. Not a nice feeling. Attribution is all it would take, really. But this does confirm what several friends have told me about the person in question, and what basically I already knew.

Tempting to go line for line, but why bother. Still, makes me question the whole blog endeavor – why one places stuff out there anonymously etc. World of greying idealess shits, that much is long since clear.

  3. Which themes of the blog have been plagiarized?

    Re ripping off blogs, at least you have a datestamped publication to point to in the case for the prosecution. As opposed to a series of private conversations.

  4. Sisyphus,

    Thanks! BTW – send me yr job materials if you like. Am good at that sort of thing, you know. Institutional intelligence I have; other forms, not so much.


    Naw, it’s not like that. It’s actually very complex, the situation that I was upset about last night. But yeah, in general, it’d be hard to imagine the sort of thing happening if I’d written what I’d originally written in a proper magazine rather than this little corner en wordpress.

    But it’s even more complicated than that. Whatever.

  5. Sorry to read this; that sucks. Shit humans. Oddly enough, though, earlier today I read the piece in question (really, quite ironic now) and almost felt a need to respond; not due to the fact that it seemed like I’d read it before, but that the author’s critique of the work in question (all surfaces, flatness of style, etc.) said so much more about the plagiarist’s own poetry than the work being critiqued.
    “Proper magazines” – that’s fine, but I really appreciate your little corner of wordpress.

  6. This shit needs to be named and shamed. I’m tired of hearing about this and hearing people get way with it. Sorry this happened dude.
