Thievery is the sincerest form of flattery?

It seems like every time I visit Tequila Mockingbird, she's right in the middle of a big plagiarism affair with people nicking entire posts from her site and passing them off as their own. Usually a sharp-eyed reader comes across these posts, points them out to Julia, then it slowly comes out that the culprit has stolen several other posts from other sites.

So when I read Tequila Mockingbird, I find myself reading through all of her posts and the comments others have left and watching the drama unfold. And then I visit the malefactor's website to see if they've apologized or made any reference to the hullaballoo (which they usually haven't). I read through their archives to see if I recognize anything else as stolen.

And I never do. It's never mine. *sniffles*

Why does no one ever want to steal anything from me? Am I not good enough to plagiarize? I'm pretty sure that if I actually did find that someone had stolen my content, I would be disgusted and angry and ready to jump up and down on them like a tiny little Mr Hyde, but I'm rather insulted that no one's even tried!

Excellent. Whenever I have blogger's block, I'll just copy and paste from Srah Blah Blah!

:P

I'll do it too, but I'll also blog random things I find written down in your room. Ah, the joys of being the annoying little sister. :)

I have always envied you're clever post headers. I might steal a few every now and then if it makes you happy/vengeful.

but my dear. why be so negative. how are you so sure it hasn't happened? i'm sure it so totally has and that you've just not caught onto them yet. just be flattered that your thieves are ten times smarter than those of Ms. Mockingbird.
