No, I did not record "Santa Claus is Coming to Kill You" the way he did (h'yeah!). Other than that, @JolietJake is a mentor of sorts. He's always getting into trouble (and he never called me to join in on the fun! Harrumph!), and we all love him for it. One of the things he's notorious for is nailing plagiarizers. Bully for him! In my opinion, plagiarizers are one of the things that was the undoing of the B-place...more specifically, the fact that the B-place ignored the plagiarizers. Fortunately, the fine crew here at myLot doesn't "turn a blind eye" (in the words of a Call song) to cheating the system. So this morning I was checking my notifications and saw that someone had left a one-word reply to one of my discussions. (Rule #1: if you're a plagiarizer, DO NOT call attention to yourself this way!) I clicked and went to their page and found five meticulously written discussions, filled with wisdom and $15 college words that certainly weren't becoming of someone who could only leave a one-word comment. So I checked. Sure enough, the articles were plagiarized. Now that person is reported and will soon be on the outside looking in. Yes, in this holiday season I pulled a Scrooge (that's the name JJ is using for the holidays). And I'm glad I did. We all suffer when there are cheats. Here's JJ singing. H'yeah!
You'd better watch out, I'm telling you why If you ain't careful you're gonna die Santa Claus is coming to kill you He's sharpening knives, he's loading his ...

I love the ones that copy from Wiki and leave the footnotes in.

Well, sometimes you just have to be a Scrooge to do some good.

I think I know who you are referring to. There was a new member that left a series of one word comments (the same word every time) on my posts.

Glad you reported it. Your right, no one benefits when someone cheats.

I once got plagiarized on Epinions. Didn't know if I should have been flattered or mad.
