rabbid:  underwear

This writing seems familiar...

I was reading cleolinda's journal (you should definitely check it out for the movie parodies and the movies in 15 minutes community), when I found a link to the one-year follow-up on the Cassie Edwards plagarism story in Smart Bitches Trashy Books.

(Sorry, that was an awful lot of links in one small space.)

Anyway, in the "State of the Plagarism" entry on SBTB, the commentary was interesting - of course, most of the commenters were madly against it - but even there, apologists started popping up, including one who claimed to have a degree from Edinburgh, and claimed that people should be "flattered" that their work was stolen.
