Plagiarism.

It’s easy! It’s easy! It’s easy! 1, 2, 3… Copy and paste. Trace. Select.Copy. Insert. Saving time too. Why spend too much time thinking? Find it, reuse it. Reduce. Reuse. Recycled.

What’s the answer that you’re looking for? Look over their shoulder. What did they write? Take it! You know you want to. Less time on work, more time to play. Right? Copy it. Just look how east it can all be!

Feeling integrity needs to be kicked away? Don’t worry. Who can spot you? They’re not paying attention. Go on. Join the dark side. Photograph it. Use their details. Submit it faster, they they’ll be the copy, right? Register the trademark, add the copyright logo, spin their materials. It’s all the same to you me. Same ending, right?

FEEL FREE TO COPY IT.

    Did someone copy your nonsense knowledge? Why did you start blogging? To copy? Or to make people fool? Or you think you’re very smart to make fun of other bloggers, who work hard to create their content?

    And you add the tag ‘creative writing’ in your posts? I mean really? You think anyone would like to read THIS when they search for ‘creative writing’?

    Taking other people’s work is NOT okay! Imagine the amount of time and effort they put into it. You clearly did not learn about plagiarism in school, you missed that lesson. Imagine all the time and effort you put into copying someone’s work you could have put it into your work. There are rules for copyright and people can be sued. You clearly don’t know that did you This post will be reported to WordPress. STOP COPYING AND DOING POSTS LIKE THIS!

      Imagine if someone copied your work and you worked so hard on your content and worked hard to grow your blog following, you would find it heartbreaking, so why copy people’s work. Copying other people’s work is unacceptable and its not allowed. I have notified other bloggers about this post and it will be reported to wordpress. This post made my blood boil.

        I’m shaking in my boots.

        Perhaps you can visit a few art galleries, read a few poems, or criticise more valid matters than an individual that probably gets a thousandth of the clicks you get. I accept your criticism.

        Writing, most typically in fiction or poetry which uses imagination and invention, can be used in many shapes and forms. The art of making things up can?involve real matters, serious or not. It covers poetry, plays, scripts, speeches, memoirs, diary notes, short stories, novels, propaganda etc.

    It may seem easy to take what you did not create, but there is a cost. Maybe not now, but in the future those who steal will have repercussions (financial, legal, moral, etc). Plus it just doesn’t feel good to steal.

    Did anyone copy your nonsense? I just want to see how many more people are with you who don’t respect bloggers, writers and their work. Your latest post on the blog, it was nicely written, but I’m sure you didn’t write that right? Whose hard work you stole this time huh? I don’t even know why you’re blogging and you added the tag ‘creative writing’? I mean really? You think people who search for ‘creative writing’ would like to read this nonsense?

      Hey Poorwa, did the aspect of creative writing offend you in some way, shape or form? Not all creative writing follows the same pathway. Isn’t satire also creative? Last week was academic integrity week at my place of work. Anyone can blog. It’s a free outlet for some, although freedom to blog is arguable in some boundaries. Did the piece take specific aim? Nonsense is very aggressive but I don’t claim anything written to be more than my own gibberish or poppycock. I like words. I like language. Please don’t get upset by my own spin on creative writing. Good luck blogging!

        Do bloggers meet somewhere and pool their collective anger before acting together? I’m sorry this all sounds very much like Donald Trump and come on Twitter…
