Ten Rules For Dating My Daughter copyright W. Bruce Cameron 1998 & How to piss off an Asshat



After a flurry of emails to a variety of individuals in which I attached the hyperlink of Plagiarism Today, the brain trust I refer to as Asshat has decided to delete the entire post in which he flagrantly plagiarized the work of Mr. Cameron.

No apologies, no affirmation that as writers we are entrusted with protecting the work of other writers, nothing that an actual gentleman might do. Nope. Just pull the plug on the post and pretend it never happened.

The good news is that Asshat now is very clear on my stance regarding plagiarism and will, I remain convinced, be reluctant to have his Asshat handed to him again by me, the one he thinks is evil and should be destroyed.

Good on you, Selah.
You are the champion of my heart.
I, on the other hand, am a cowardly lion although I'm just about ready to pull out of tNBW and tell Sol where he can shove the "free" year I won when my short story took the quarterly prize. After being ripped off by the asshat crew, to have SOl use my 1st chapter soley to get more members and not for the purpose he stated is really working my nerves. I;m sick of not sleeping.

How do they get away with it? How can anyone be that much of an Asshat for that many years without pissing someone off to the point that they pull the shotgun from the rack behind the seat and add ventilation to the Asshat!
