kevinboehm: Nana's Vibrator: HotWingConspiracy:

Gosling:

Thanks, y'all.
Essentially, what she did was use another article as a resource and make her own column out of it. I'm not a Fox apologist in the least, but how is that different from what this guy from Cracked did? I suppose if she had taken credit for the ideas as her own creation it might be plagiarism, but the difference is moot. Both authors are content-stealing jerks.
I smell a Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan romantic comedy in the making. Spoiler alert: it ends with a rocket propelled grenade fired by a Fark contest winner.

Uh, No. She took something someone else had created, and presented it as her own. He took what she claimed was her own, and said "Do you see what this dumbass is doing?" Apparently you don't.


I'm sorry, what?

How the fark do you hug someone from behind and set the gun off into your chest when it is on someone's waist in it's holster?

Shenanigans!

It wasn't the hug that killed her. biatch got popped by a dirty Detroit cop.

I am shocked to find out that Fox News employs incompetent people to disseminate false information and/or information "recycled" from other sources.

Shocked, I tells ya.

It's different because Seanbaby sourced the article- and the original, for that matter- with the stated-upfront purpose of analyzing the piece, item by item. That is completely within journalistic bounds. Milt simply took someone else's piece and passed large quantities of it off as her own, without sourcing or crediting the original. That is a cardinal sin in journalism and quite often brings careers to a very abrupt end. Not only do you get fired, but no serious news organization wants anything to do with a known plagiarizer.

This is the last journalism job Amber Milt will ever hold.

tricycleracer: 11. Link to page 2 of an article after getting a redlight.


No, I was just on page 2 when I decided to submit it and forgot to go back to page 1. That's a farkup on my part. If I'd have remembered to go back to page 1 first, you'd have that link instead.

I'm still impressed by how relevent this GIF ad remains to be. It's no floor humping guy, but it's close.

Her advise is horrible, but I don't buy Cracked's claims that she plagiarized her list of 10 items from a smaller list of 7, when only two are shared between the lists and neither are hardly original.

Horrible flirting advise... Yes.

Plagiarism... No.

wraithmare: 11. Substitute rat poison for the sugar in his morning coffee! He'll take a swig, make a face, call you his little minx and then it's hot steamy fun on the kitchen table!


I know of a woman who did that on one occasion, unintentionally. She believed later that she had caused his death when he was found unresponsive on the floor of his office. Fortunately, he had leaned too far back in his broken office chair, fallen and suffered a minor concussion before he had consumed any coffee, and he suffered no lasting injury. He was later transferred to a Brazillian office; I do not know what has become of him since.

/seemed an appropriate story to relate during a discussion of plagiarism.
 
2012-07-12 04:47:07 PM
I read that article ( not the original original, but the second original)
She's trolling.

I suppose it is also possible that this was written by software.

Parody, satire, commentary, etc., utilize source material for context for the new material. The new material is not the source material. Plus, providing the reference for the source material is essential. Failure to provide the reference or add new material to the source material would be plagiarism; a simple rewrite of the source material or say generating a list and having some items be original would not be new material itself.

Now, the 'pranks' are rather generic, and there doesn't seem to be lifting from the article; the order of appearance is different, and two of them, the food coloring and tape, are quite different. Nothing suggests she used those, and this is common knowledge which does not require a reference all the same. Of course, Seanbaby is still funny even if way off.

I don't disagree at all. I guess my point was that Seanbaby is a big hack, too, as the content (# of words) of his column is eaten up by someone else's writing. Just because it's an acceptable method doesn't mean much. And sure, it's Cracked, but there's a big story in the plagiarism. He didn't have to write everything he did in order to do all that, unless he was trying to misdirect the appearance of a witch hunt. And who cares about that? Rightfully, no one will ever accuse Fox News of having integrity.

Also, I'm not aware of Amber Milt's reputation, but she could certainly still get a job at the Boston Herald (see:Barnicle, Mike; Borges, Ron)

The article was written to laugh at the shiatty ideas that Fox put up on their website. Nobody (least of all Seanbaby) gives a rats ass that she stole the list, beyond the fact that it's funny that something so shiatty was ripped off. This chick ain't no journalist She writes lists for a website. There's a difference.

The article exists to make simple minded fools like me chuckle at the hilarious and varied ways that the author can call somebody gay. That's all.

Of course, this being Fark, and because the woman is affiliated with a right leaning site, it's OK that people make vulgar sexist remarks. Conservative women don't deserve equal rights, right Fark?

Bleyo: Seanbaby is funny.

[i.crackedcdn.com image 300x218]

With Krinkles the Clown as the mascot, every serving of Sugar Krinkles now had the vitamins and minerals of one handful of flesh and the fear you need to get you going in the morning. The prize inside every box was whispers. Whenever you lost a kitchen knife in 1969, you would somehow always find it inside Post's Sugar Krinkles. The side of the box had photos of missing children, but each of them was labeled "Ingredients."

Sugar Krinkles was eventually pulled from the shelf, but Krinkles the Clown continued to find work. He now appears in mirrors every time you look away from them.


Yes. Seanbaby is funny.

Do you not understand how parody and commentary work in comedy? Or do you just think that all comedic writers/performers who base their comedy on other people's works are hacks?

This. SeanBaby is a national treasure. He had me cracking up uncontrollably in my cubicle a decade ago. Glad to see he's not lost his touch.
 
2012-07-12 05:20:37 PM

SFSailor: However, as someone who has a real problem with plagiarists and the growing acceptance of plagiarism, I have to give some credit here. Hope it costs the biatch her job, honestly.


I feel your pain, but this doesn't qualify as plagiarism, by which I mean it isn't good enough.

If I paraphrase your dissertation and turn it in as mine, I'm a plagiarist, because people in academia care who came up with what idea.

If I take your Reuters story and stick it under my AP byline, I'm a plagiarist, because reporters get credit according to who did what reporting.

If I sample your song for my battle rap epic, I may or may not be violating your copyright, but I'm not really a plagiarist because everybody knows that I didn't write "Tiptoe Through the Tulips."

What she's doing is the equivalent of reciting knock-knock jokes. Even if you suspect she didn't come up with this stuff herself, you can't begin to care where she got it.

Again, I totally take your meaning. She's slimy and she doesn't even have the good graces to be effectively or usefully slimy. But let's save accusations of plagiarism for people who are at least doing work of middle-school level importance. As for costing her her job, I'm being dead serious when I say that having this job in the first place is the punishment. This is what she does with her day. Toll booth attendants can and should take more pride in their work--and are probably paid better, since she's almost certainly a freelancer.
 
2012-07-12 05:21:55 PM
Um, there is a HUGE difference (as in not even close to being the same) from taking someone elses writing (work) and claiming it as your own (as the fox contributor did) --that is plagerizm and it is illegal and immoral--....... and copying someone elses writing (work), giving full credit to the author and then making original comments about the work (like the crack contributor did) -- that is commentary or fair use of materials while giving credit to the orginal author--.

/what is so hard to understand about that?

Xcott: Here's an oldie but goodie: convince the style and beauty editor to write an article on "top 10 romantic pranks." Or for that matter, top 10 anything that she'll have to think up on her own. She'll end with 5 ideas that make her sound like she has the IQ of a 2x4 and 5 more ideas she had to find by Googling stuff from other people's articles.

Make sure to write "gotcha" on the bottom of the cardboard box they give her to clean out her cubicle at the end of the day. She'll have no idea why she lost her job, but she'll think the cardboard box is somehow responsible!


Win.

And last. I'm not a huge supporter of Fox News by any means, but that guy sounds downright psychopathic in his hatred. You can make a good point without having to resort to shock value vocabulary and phrasing.

Plus his point is on very sketchy ground. I would tend to agree with the person up-thread who said re-posting these kind of things is akin to retelling a knock-knock joke.

"If there's anyone who's figured out how punch a hole through unorificed fruit skin with a limp gummy shape, it's the men farking you."


"Every time Amber Milt menstruates, the world gets four gallons of dog blood more evil."

That's some fine misogyny, Lou.
