This is interesting. Someone liked our article on How to Stop Being So Lazy so much, she copy/pasted it into her own blog and passed it off as her own. The only thing she changed was the title and the last line. Everything else is Writista’s original text.
While this is really flattering, it is also illegal.
Perhaps the poster didn’t realize that she was plagiarizing our work. Perhaps I should write a series of articles about plagiarism… on how to spot it, how to avoid it, etc. Plagiarism is a widespread practice, and most people know it’s wrong, but many people still steal other people’s work, out of laziness or ignorance.
