plagiarized

Some 13 year-old girl in Washington ganked several of my entries and posted them on her blog-with minor edits, and you know, less punctuation, capitalization, and correct spelling. Here, here, and oh, here. Should I be flattered or offended? Am I now providing memes to the tweens and didn't even know it? Crap, now I just granted her profile request "oh ya tell your friends bout this site ASAP:) ".

Updated 8/15/05 to add: The child has changed her blog URL twice now in an effort to hide. She also deleted most of the entries she copied, which was actually a smart choice on her part. She must have had help coming up with the idea. Her blog has now moved to here. Oh, and I'm a slut! Who knew? My husband was somewhat surprised to hear this. And since she's changing her URL at the rate of four a day, here's the entry devoted to me:

"Don't go here
if i were you i would not go to queenkandis.blogspot.com
because she is a slut and she doesn't think straight and she thinks i have been
stealing her posts so really people do NOT go there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Someone is stealing your stuff? How did you find out? You should read this woman's post about what to do when that happens. Not only is she hilarious, but she's smart and she takes no prisoners.

I found out, because the silly twit left a couple of barely legible comments on my entries with a link to her blog. (She's really very bright... if this were a planet populated by nothing but children.) The entries she stole were just mundane lists of things I post when I don't really have anything to say. It's actually kind of sad.

Is ganked a real word?

According to Urban Dictionary:

1. gank
To steal or take something that does not belong to you.
"i didnt have money so i ganked it"

2. gank

1. vt. (Am. slang) To steal in a surreptitious or underhanded manner

if you are going to put links to her blog you might want to at least get the right address. gosh what a nerd

Queen Kandis said...

Damn, why didn't I think of that? Or why didn't the kid think of moving her blog to hide the blatant copying? Oh wait, she did.
