When plagiarists don't even try...

It does happen that we'll occasionally see things that we've written for WAGNH pop up on other websites and be published as someone else's work. It happens, and it gets dealt with. You do see some things that make you laugh from time to time when that happens though, and this morning was one of those times. A website got mentioned here a few days ago that was doing a little cut and paste work to their own front page, and this morning they did it yet again (using the fanpost by FootieFromAfar). The article mentions translating at a request from Graham, and sure enough they didn't even bother to change that when they plagiarized the article. Take a look for yourself:


I'm certainly not going to link to anyone running such a piss poor website and stealing the work of others, but I will certainly give you all this opportunity to point and laugh at some truly lazy plagiarism. It will be really ironic if this ends up on their website later today, I'd probably even link you that one if it does.

*They did change a few words in the post, changing the names credited to the translators to their thoughtful of them
