Seroxat article – ‘plagiarism’
Posted by shutah on July 20, 2007
Plagiarism (from Latin plagiare “to kidnap”) is the practice of claiming, or implying, original authorship or incorporating material from someone else’s written or creative work, in whole or in part, into one’s own without adequate acknowledgement. Unlike cases of forgery, in which the authenticity of the writing, document, or some other kind of object, itself is in question, plagiarism is concerned with the issue of false attribution.
The author of http://www.widowedworldwide.com/ is guilty of the above!! After MUCH research I wrote and posted an article on July 16 Seroxat – Medicinal Product Information and he had the nerve to just copy and paste the entire article (including the heading) into his own ‘dubious’ blog! without a bye or leave! I say ‘dubious’ because he also advertises FIVE websites for the purchase of a variety of antidepressants (including Seroxat). The ‘SCUMBAG’!!!
I sent a reply to ‘his’ article asking him not to repeat the offence, and even challenged him to publish it indicating my disgust. Guess what? The weasle didn’t even have the courtesy to do that and just dismissed my admonishment out of hand!! Well, he’s messing with the wrong person here, which is why I’m highlighting the issue.
I don’t wish to be too churlish, but please, all bloggers, have the courtesy to state where you obtain your information, or at the very least insert a link to the site/page it came from.
‘Nuff said … for now!
