Stupid enough to post someone else's coherently-written story under a title with no capital letters and an incoherent summary.  Even if you didn't know where to find the original version she copied from, anyone can see that the level of writing of the story does NOT match the level of writing of the summary and title.

What a tard, seriously. LOL

It astounds me the lengths people will go for.... I'm not sure exactly?  Seriously, why not just come up with your own plot and write your own story?  Evidently that requires too much effort.

The thing is, it also takes effort to change all the names etc... if you are going to take time to do that then at least write your own story. I just added a new item on the site lol Maybe that will stop her?

You're the wind beneath my wings, Mare.

In all honesty, I think she must realize she is too stupid or talentless to write her own story (as evidenced by the incoherent summary of her latest crime), yet she wants the "glory" that goes along with writing good fanfic, so she just steals them instead.  Which just proves her stupidity.  Stupidity to the third power, apparantly, since she tried it at least three times LOL.  Sad!!

One of those was mine.  It was laughable that she tried to do it.  I saw in some replies where she didn't even change the character names and she went back to "fix" it.  It's just ridiculous and laughable how stupid she was to think that no one would catch it.  The least she could've done was capitalize the names in the one she stole from me.  And put a different male lead in.  AJ did not fit that characterizati on.  At all.  Karma, she be a bitch and will track you down no matter what.

I didn't delete the story so this way anyone who wanted to could go in and comment on what a great job she has done plagerizing and since her account is locked she can't respond lol.

*sigh* I must say I am really aggitated that someone would plagiarize, let alone, get caught and turn around to do it again! I can't imagine how I would feel if someone stole my story! We all put so much time and effort into our writting...eve n if it sucks fat furry monkey butt, it's still THAT person's work and it f'd up that people have no problem disrespecting others like that! UH the nerve!  Angry

I know! The fact that she did it to begin with was annoying enough but then to have the nerve to try to repost the same story on the same site just under a different pen name and title was just ridiculous! it's hard work to write. I mean it's a lot of fun, which is why we all do it but a lot of hard wprk as well and the fact that anyone would be hohum about stealing someone else's work makes me pretty mad, if you can't tell. I will smite if I have to.

I actually wish she could respond; I'd love to see what she has to say for herself.  Tanja never responded, just moved on to somewhere new where she could plagiarize.

And LOL Dee, I thought of To Catch a Predator too.  I looooove that show!!  We could have a decoy fan who lures her into a discussion, and then Mare or Julilly come in and are like, "... What are you doing?" and show the documents revealing that the story is plagiarized.  If only we could have cops waiting for her when she gets off the internet.

She wouldn't say anything believe me. I can tell she sees nothing wrong with what she did. Her response to my email was that a friend of hers told her to post the story up. Ah well she said, I guess just delete my account then. This is the kind of person who wouldn't respond to anything being said to her.

I keep checking Vaffel.com to see if she is posting there. I'm not sure of any other sites she would post her story at. Maybe she is over at the busted board posting lmao
