This brings up a good point for the rest of us.

Without being familiar with Jesuashok's particular situation, I can speculate a couple of reasons that someone -may- plagairize postings/code. The foremost would be 'I thought the <material> was helpful, so I posted it. I should have cited my source.'

Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but when I work a project it's wretchedly obvious. My name and the current date are everywhere: in the code intros, around newly inserted code blocks, in pieces that I commented out temporarily or permanently... you get the idea. This helps me remember the madness I've been up to, but it also makes it EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO UNINTENTIONALY PLAGIARIZE.

There are few defenses against purposeful plagairism, but by rigorously signing and commenting our work we can take a big step towards protecting ourselves, and others, from 'unintentional plaigarism.' I, for one, hope that my work is worth citing and showing to people, and I hardly expect every shmo in town to be able to track down the code's original author.

It's nice to see you've decided to reform your ways, jesuashok. Apology accepted.

  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
