Damn if I don't hate Plagiarists. You know the kind, I'm sure you do . . .

Plagiarists are people who quote others without attribution or any kind of credit at all! The Plagiarist makes it seems as though the other's words are their own.

In some cases imitation is a form of flattery, and in this case imitation isn't like that at all, it's an outright form of theft.

The following quote isn't by that blog's author, yet it's posted without attribution or any kind of credit for the person who wrote the words you are about to read.

It's not the first time I've seen this particular blog use other's words uncredited. I'm pretty sure it won't be the last either!
erospainter:
The two participants in this BDSM exchange of power are connected – emotionally, psychically, even spiritually. Successful BDSM scenes require a level of communication and honesty beyond what one usually finds in vanilla sexual encounters. A skillful Dom intuits the sub’s psychological and physical state from her breathing, her skin, her body language. To the sub, it can feel as though the dominant is reading her mind – and maybe he is. She cannot lie about her arousal or her agony. Both are plain to see. The experience of being seen and known so deeply is intoxicating, magnifying the sexual excitement.

http://ohgetagrip.blogspot.com/2009/03/joys-of-writing-bdsm.html is the original . . .

Beware people, everything is not as is seems with the Erosplagiarizer.

Please don't think I'm picking on this individual, he knows what he's doing is wrong, he's been asked privately to properly attribute the work he posts, yet he can't help himself. It's sad, it's pathetic, and it's one of the lowest things an individual can do to a writer, to steal their words.

Before we knew he was a plagiarizer, this man's blog was in our blog roll. We apologize for the oversight. Once we discovered his work was less than original, his blog was quickly removed from our listing. In the interim, if you also began following this individual, we apologize to you, for the fraud that was foisted upon you when you trusted one of our links. Mea Culpa!

There's more good BDSM blogs than people can follow, just know that Erospainter's blog ain't one of them!
