I just want to give a HUGE thank you to those of you who took the time to e-mail me/leave a comment about Dawn’s blog. I really appreciate you ladies trying to protect my interest and look out for me – you guys are the best! I would also like to take this opportunity to point out that I will not tolerate plagiarism. If you would like to use my content, feel free to do so but please remember to cite me.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, here is what happened in a nutshell:-
It all started last week when another blogger in Asia, Dawn Yang, copied and pasted a paragraph from one of my older entries on her blog and paraphrased a sentence without sourcing me. Soon afterwards, people started sending her hate mail and used this to bash her on blogs and forums. I got in touch with Dawn to see what’s up and to hear her side of the story. She wrote back, apologized and said she was doing research for her blog and had no idea she took the information from a personal blog. She has now cited me on her blog and everything is cool between us.
Please do not use this incident against her anymore. No one needs the unnecessary drama =)
