Plagiarism [Jan. 4th, 2008|09:50 am]
Preserving Thamiris' LJ and memory


[Current Mood |angryangry]

There has been an incident of plagiarism of a story by Tham,

In Principio.

This person has also been plagiarizing other entries from Tham's journal. The incident was reported to this community by bofoddity. If you read the entry, it's clear that SV fen are already out in force to defend.

If anyone knows if there is a way to bar this individual from further access to Tham's LJ, please point us in the right direction. Is this grounds for contacting the Abuse Prevention Team? and if so, will they do anything?

If those ppl are boyan_fraser's friends list, then yes, I do indeed mean them.

The plagiarizing journal from last year had around 80 friends, but remember, we used the same standardized message on all of them, and divided the work among a handful of ppl. Most ppl were very grateful to be notified that the writing they were admiring was not that person's own, and then they de-friended and left, leaving that journal pretty moot. (after that LJ abuse team deleted the account, but it often takes them some time to do that, and in this case, tham being dead, they might not defend her material at all)

I also think we could write to the moderators of all the writing communities that boyan_fraser is in. It is particularly these kind of people that BF wants to impress, and those are also the most likely to be disgusted with his behavior when they know the truth.

I wonder if LJ might find it in their hearts to make another exception, Tham being dead, the same as when they honored our request to make her account a Memorial one.
