Update on Plagiarism case  
So you might remember this past weekend I contacted stop_plagiarism about some fics that seemed oddly familiar. (Original post here).

Well, after doing some digging, stop_plagiarism has determined that orbofthesulah is a plagiarist. Now, some of you are new but in the past, I was plagiarized (I mean, I have a tag for it!). It's not fun and it's something I can't stand. That is why I do firmly believe in public shaming these people. Sometimes, it helps, they stop their stealing ways, delete their LJs, etc. Sometimes it doesn't. But to me, it's something important to note.

Here is the report on stop_plagiarism. I find her responses very telling. She clearly doesn't think that stealing is wrong (And one look at her Tumblr, that much is clear. A ton of fics posted without ANY credit or link backs)

So yes, orbofthesulah aka thegirlinquestion on Tumblr is a plagiarist. And honestly, I never would have found out if she didn't post part of a plagiarised fic on Tumblr and someone reblogged it.

If she is on your LJ or Tumblr, I would suggest deleting her right away as she stole videos and graphics as well. (Stop Plagiarism doesn't cover those, sadly). She doesn't look like she is above from stealing from everyplace she can. I've still got some other people helping me, as it seems most of her fics are stolen from other places. I'm hoping we can fatten up the case.

YES! She was reblogging all kinds of stuff with "Eww Cordy" and "Get out Cordelia, you whore" etc. Today she was talking about wanting to punch Cordelia in the face. Thank god she left FYCA.

That is TERRIBLE. Her online rights should be revoked! (You know, if such a thing were possible to enforce.) It's not right for her to go around taking credit for other people's hard work and creativity.

I really wish there was a way to zap people through the computer and you could zap someone as soon as they plagiarised or stole icons/graphics. ZAP!

Oh wow, I had no idea that was her! Not only the one who plagiarizes but the one who was reblogging and talking crap about Cordy. WOW!

And she is still doing it! She called her a manstealer. And she called Nina a whore. And she called Buffy names. Plus, she is RPing Faith in this horrible horrible OOC Tumblr RP and she is using Cordy's lines from the show as Faith! GAAAAARRRR! RAEG!

She's RPing as Faith? Wtf? Woww! I'm glad I'm not following her. Which reminds me, actually, I wanted to ask you something that I think you could help me with seeing as how you have experience. It's nothing overly serious, but just something that's been bugging me, so I'm gonna shoot you a PM if that's cool? :)
