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?

Thank you for stopping by to talk about this. I understand your concerns.

Despite some unfortunate lashing out that has taken place elsewhere, I don't think anyone here is looking to villify the people on B_F's Friends list. We know that most, if not all, of you were unaware of B_F's actions. And I already discussed with my co-mod here the fact that some of you who have learned of the situation may well be staying on the list to have access to that locked content for evidence. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that.

Seal's idea was not to harass any of you, but just to construct a polite and tactful message to send folks privately, to make sure that no one was still having their trust abused and still, unknowingly, giving credit to B_F for the words of someone we cherished.

I've been keeping an eye on the threads here, at journalfen, and related links, so that, if we do go forward with the idea of sending that message, I will do my best to make sure we're not contacting anyone we know already has learned what B_F has been doing. And, again, the message would not be attacking recipients, just informing.

I was actually alerted to this whole sorry situation by a message via LJ's private message system. If I got this message, I'm assuming everyone else on BF's f-list did too so they must all have been informed by now. When I read this thread, I just assumed it was from you guys -- just thought I'd let you know that someone's sent out a message already.

I've already defriended the guy... anything that was related to this seemed to have been made private and at the time it seemed like there was no point hanging around when I could no longer get caps. Kinda wish I'd stuck around now to see if he posts anything else about this that I could've capped for you guys, but I was so totally disgusted my visceral reaction was "UGH DEFRIEND".

What a weasel, man. There are just no words. I'm glad I didn't know him at all well and I'm sorry that this has dredged up painful memories for a lot of you. I hadn't heard of Thamiris until today, but it seems like she was a class act.

Well I appreciate that you had already considered the reasoning for staying on this person's F-list that I mentioned.

I appreciate the reasoning being Seal's idea of ensuring that people on B_F's F-list are informed of what has transpired, and agree with it of course. My problem is with the public listing of the people concerned on this thread. Please see my response to Seal below as to my reasoning. As I said to her, I would appreciate it if that list posted by captainlucy could be removed from this thread.
