  • Let’s Talk About Plagiarism

    A few years ago, a blanket ban was placed on discussion of any works related to a certain person due to the Admin's deep and abiding disdain for the person and a deep desire to not promote anything that person did. That disdain holds, however, recent public interest requires I put aside my personal disdain, to allow for a frank discussion. So the ban is limited, to a single thread, where discussion of his book will be allowed. If you don't know who I am talking about, you will soon enough I'm sure.

    It’s unfortunate that other good people are innocently implicated in this.

    However it really shouldn’t come as a surprise.

          Take a close look at the text.

          Clearer?

                I don’t think enough can be said.

                Other authors submitted their pieces in good faith. Yet one or two have chosen to steal text from two of the most prominent and respected people in the field.

                Either they do not respect these individuals (fellow authors along with those plagiarised), or they are that stupid they didnt think they would get caught out.

                Charlatans and cranks.

                  Is that a one off? Of all the paragraphs to plagiarise, this seems the most unnecessary.

                    Strangely enough, I've just requested a certain JTR book from my local library.

                    I cancel it tomorrow.

                    This sort of dialogue can only help folks like me, who are trying to access honest, unbiased and "original" research.

                      On second thoughts, I'll go ahead and read it.

                      Should be interesting, albeit in a strange way.

                        If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I wouldn’t have believed it. Disgrace.

                        You said “one or two” Monty. Has another contributor done the same trick?

                          We know Cobb plagiarized CSI Whitechapel and according to the book's copyright Cobb could be held accountable for "Keith Stride's" chapter too, regardless of who "Keith Stride" turns out to be.

                            It is the authors responsibility that the content submitted to the publishers is true.

                            As it seems one person has signed the contract, and has taken ownership of the works, then they are solely responsible for its content.

                            If I were Cobb, I’d have ensured Strides content was honest. However, given the formers track record for content theft, I’m not surprised.

                              You are lucky your library will obtain a copy. I’m guessing Pen & Sword are far more reliable in delivering their works than Secret Chambers books, who happily take your money but fail to come up with the goods.

                              However thats a different, and yet another, issue.
