It happens to me every so often. Once again, I was pointed to a piece that someone thought I would be interested in. I followed the link and found the piece to be extremely thoughtful, showed great insight and was extremely well written.
I should know, I was the author, at least originally. Someone had once again re-published old work of mine under their name and as always, it’s a little surprising when i see my words under someone else’s name. I won’t point to the site. I’m not here to embarrass someone in public but I did write them (as I do when this happens from time to time) and ask why they did it. What dives someone to plagiarize instead of offering up their own thoughts?
Someone once said that “the difference between plagiarism and originality was a bad memory”. I’d tell you who said that, but I seem to have forgotten.
