First Discussion - The Fandom Psychiatrist

I personally wouldn't go so far as to say Cassandra Claire owned up to her plagarizing. Yes she did say at one point that she had lifted things (especially that large passage from that book) but she never exactly formally cited the reference, used it with permission, and there were previously several other false explanations (in other words, lies) that she offered.
But I do think that in the case of most fandom plagarising issues, Cassandra Claire is an exceptional example.
I think at one point we're going to have a whole series of case study discussions: CC, MsScribe, Caina, and that's just in the HP fandom. But before that, I have to go and familiarize myself with the whole story of CC's misdeeds

Heh, yeah. I've read all about Ms.Scribe (and in doing so realized that I was actually present in the fandom for some parts of that "legend"), and started reading up on CC just the other day (don't know why... just did). I haven't heard of Caina or what happened there but I'll definitely be familiarizing myself now.
*is amused* cool, but let's not get started on that right now; shall we save it for a post where that's the focus?

Haha, well of course.
