Plagiarism

15 Jun

In case you don’t know what plagiarism is…   Allow me to google that for you:

pla·gia·rism/ˈplājəˌrizəm/

Noun:
The practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own.
I bring it up because I received a message on POF today, asking how I was.  I went and checked out his profile, and he literally copied my “First Date” section.  Word for word.    There was no way it was a coincidence.
I list my idea for a first date as:  “I think something very casual is probably best considering the nature of the online dating beast.”
I then, of course, go on to say that for a 2nd date, I require a trip overseas.   — He did not copy that part.
His idea of a first date is:  “I think something very casual is probably best considering the nature of the online dating beast.”
Duuuuude – if you are literally going to steal a part of someone’s profile -you shouldn’t be messaging that person.   That’s really weird.   You should also change it up and put your own spin on it.
Did he really think I wouldn’t notice that?
