Free Plagiarism on the Internet: Another stupid consequence of our digital age.

The electronic cheating never ends. A few days ago I published this ARTICLE about the dark side of the publishing industry. Now here we go again. At least this stupid comment that someone left me on WordPress gave me an idea for a new post, so that’s something. Here’s what “Kasey” wrote to me:

“Hello webmaster do you need unlimited articles for your website ?
What if you could copy post from other websites,
make it pass copyscape test and publish on your website – i know the right tool for you, just search in google:

kisamtai’s article tool”

Here’s my response:

Hey Kasey who started a fake blog for the purpose of spamming me,

Thanks so much for stopping by my website. I’m so excited to learn about these shortcuts for article writing that you mentioned in your comment. I didn’t know that I could use other people’s content so easily. It’s made me realize how self-absorbed I’ve been on my website, writing about my own thoughts and ideas while I could have been using other people’s ideas instead! Boy, I’ve really missed out.

I was so excited to learn that all the writing I’ve been doing has been a waste of time. I didn’t realize Internet content was as easy as copy and pasting from other websites.  This sounds like a great time-saver. I’m sure no one will notice.

In order for these copied articles to be consistent with what I have previously published on the site, can you find articles that I can copy which are about my life? Just remember that my site is about my writing and thoughts, so if my writing and thoughts have been previously downloaded onto some other sites, it would be great to find them so I don’t have to take the time to write about myself anymore.

You also sound so clever as to have created a tool to by-pass copyscape. That’s fantastic.

Now as soon as I find a proper means of disposing of my integrity, I will certainly do that Google search that you recommended.

I’m excited about the new possibilities of just copying and pasting my way to success and satisfaction. Great content using the ctrl key – who knew?

This is a great day and age we live in, isn’t it? I’m sure you have made your family proud by figuring out ways to skirt around hard-work and authenticity – two overrated concepts if I ever knew of any.

Thank you for contacting me. I hope you let me know of any other electronic shortcuts that you stumble upon because I’m pretty sure you will.

Much respect for your forthrightness,

mwsasse

  1. I actually added a Creative Commons License yesterday to my website to help detract from this kind of activity… we shall see. I get spam like that all the time. The delete key is my friend. 🙂
