Is anyone surprised? Tumblr is full of plagarism… I steal peoples pictures all the time :-)
That’s different, and I make lots of memes/pics and I don’t demand credit for them. That kind of stuff is meant to be shared once it’s out there. The only thing that’s not cool is saying you made them yourself if you didn’t (that’s what would be plagiarism - claiming it as your own).
doesn’t matter if its plagiarized. its for the story and message its sending.
Plagiarism doesn’t matter… as long as the “message” is good…
I’m sure the author of the story - and every other author, and most people in general - would vehemently disagree. And if the anon wanted to share the “message” it’s just as easy to say, “check out the story I read by [this person]” and not act as though they are recounting it FIRST HAND.
