It is gone now, but the irony was priceless. Some mornings I just don't quite know what to think about things, but I actually got a good laugh from that. *sips coughee* In other world news, President Trump is still orange. More on this story as it develops...

I once saw a plagiarised post which was all about the wrongs of using plagiarised material! I forget now whether it was here or elsewhere but I thought that just about took the biscuit! I know that I reported it and both it and the user who posted it were gone PDQ.
Ah...why am I always late in catching those plagiarists. I might just get a chance to improve my English...sigh. You know JJ one thing I really envy you for. Your English and your knowledge, ability to search through net. I wish I had those skills. When I read and draft my case papers (I am learning that lawyers here just eat and sleep, they expect client to do all the work, and take monies upfront) I feel I am not articulate enough to get across to the person reading it. It pains me because I want to say the things as simply as possible. I am unable to do so. :(
I could never really tell if something is plagiarised though I remember you telling me how to do it. Nevertheless, I don't really try to check people's posts all the time. But I can tell when someone is trying to cheat mylot when there's just too many posts one after another and then when one couldn't really speak English fluently, but all of a sudden, the discussion turns into a very technically perfect work of literature.
I know this post is about plagiarism but what amused me more is that as I scrolled down the responses and comments, I noticed that the first two are quite colorful. I saw red, the aforementioned orange, and then pink. Then as I scrolled down to the bottom, I saw brown. Fascinating!
