View Full Version : Draft Beware

Hello Fineavers - some blasts from the past!

I wanted to hand out a warning; one of the pre-emminent posters here in the FH draft forum is going to another well known Dolphin site and stealing the work of myself, CK, Con and Alen and coming here and passing it off as their own. In a way it's flattering but mostly it's quite tedious. I'm not arrogant enough to think that copying what I write is worth stealing but the others, well....

This person knows who they are and I won't - yet - embarrass them by naming them, suffice to say that I will do if they carry on doing it. I will happily provide evidence both from this year and last where this person was ejected from a similar site for doing the same thing.

It's really rather petty that it comes to this but when you're reading your own stuff back to yourself on another forum, but someone elses name is attached, well...that's awfully dull.

Happy New Year,
Boomer.

Hey Colin - thanks. Want to see where we end up and whixh juniors come out yet.

Not Verbatim Tuna, but enough so it's obvious, especially given the history.

Linky???

I was acutally thinking about copying your Thread and pawing it off as my own.. :rimshot:

Thought it would be funny

LOL.

A link would make it obvious who it was. Trust me that this is the case for the 2nd year running.

Some thoughts...

2. I find myself agreeing with hooshoops on nearly everything he says. There may be an ILB solution for us in this free agent period, so let's not go nuts over Rolondo McClain yet. And I'm not even saying that as a Brandon Spikes proponent, I'm saying that as a realist.

Well, suffice it to say that as Simon points out, it's tedious when you see it happen. I have no problem when opinions are alike or when you agree, but when you start basically saying exactly what someone else is saying and presenting yourself as an authority, it irks me.

If there is an issue regarding plagiarism, this will be taken care of behind the scenes. No need to bash people in public, so this will be sorted out appropriately, just not on the forums. This thread is closed.
