the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone

  • Mood:


Really didn't want to get up this morning and now I see why. Another bloody plagiarism drama has hit Xander fic.

Same guy as before, y'know the notorious BX one, it's hit the lists already and I honestly don't know what to do about it. After he 'came out' and admitted what he'd done, apologized and started posting under his new name (apparently his real name) I let him post to INAP but did so on the condition that I was watching him closely. As soon as he did so I was contacted by someone who told me they knew he was posting again and that they had evidence that in one of his new stories he'd plagiarised. I asked what that evidence was and apparently what this person had done was google every single sentence and come up with one hit. On a porn site. Given the kind of things this guy writes that wasn't really all that surprising (in fact that the person reporting it to me only got one hit of that kind was the real surpiirse to me).

Now something similar is hitting the lists, again with the same kind of thing. The person reporting the plagiarism has googled some phrases from the stories and found some hits on an erotic stories newsgroup. Phrases. Not sentences.

I honestly don't know what to do about this. I will not have plagiarism on any of my sites, it should be as simple as that. But is this plagiarism? Especially given the nature of what he writes?

All thoughts and advice appreciated!
