That "Anonymous" comment was by me - not sure why it's not recognizing me.

Oh, yeah, I put other people's novels in wrong folders on my computer all the time. It's a hazard every writer on the planet faces. Think maybe I should stop downloading other people's novels onto my computer? Might that help?

Two cases of plagiarism in my last set of papers. sigh!

Li - very detailed and informative. Thanks for commenting.

Jan - don't know if you read it all but she admitted that's she's a thief.

Charles - some students (and writers) don't place any value on other people's words.

Sylvia, your comments were in the Spam folder. I didn't know I had a spam folder. :) My blog didn't recognize you because you have no pic! :) Just kidding - try again to see what happens.

I'm just amazed that people would do those kinds of things. I must live in a bubble.

Lynn - I think a lot of people do this. This is just one who got caught. Sure makes you nervous about putting yourself out there.
You don't live in a bubble-you live by the Golden Rule: do unto others as you'd have them do unto you (and other variations.) It's a shame others don't practice that. Life sure would be a lot simpler.
