Update on Plagiarism

by Joshua Foust on 4/23/2007 · 1 comment

One of the staff at the Times of Central Asia responded first thing Monday their time to an email inquiry about my plagiarized writing. After explaining the situation, she agreed it was theft and said they had removed the post. I would like to note her exceedingly helpful and friendly attitude (i.e. she didn’t have an attitude). However, since I do not have subscriber access, I cannot confirm that the story has, indeed, been removed. Can anyone else help me out?

Glad you got a response and all, but seems like plagiarism is the cost of doing business in this part of the world. I’d be more surprised if you didn’t get something your wrote ripped of.
