Wow. Check this out. Makes you wonder yet again what goes on inside the plagiarist’s head. Ethical and moral considerations aside (and goodness knows they are many and weighty), in this day of instant searches and perenially accessible information, behavior like this┬ájust seems really, really dumb.

Sorry to hear about this with regard to your fine work, Barbara Jean.

  1. Ugh, that’s just awful. You’ve got to wonder what screwy reasoning someone like that goes through to arrive at the conclusion that plagiarism is the way to go :/

  2. And because it’s certain that she will be found out and exposed, one wonders at her state of mind. It looks like denial on a grand scale.

    1. We now know that she took on the identiy of Ornela Vorpsi – all Ornela’s photos and artwork. A professor who has translated many of these albanian poets work has been informed by one of our members and will be letting them all know. Amazing the extend of ID theft and plagiarism.

  3. I think I was the first to notice her thievery. Maybe others had suspicions beforehand. It was a stroke of luck that I found her Lulu entry with some of my old… quite old work. I’m glad that filthy bitch got herself caught, but she’s still around, as a friend directed me to a couple of new weblogs she opened.

    There’s no reason not to stop bewaring.
