Just been to a variety show thread in Soompi reading up on the comments and I saw my name being mentioned not once but twice saying that I copied word for word an article that person wrote and plagarise it on my blog. One also indirectly mentioned me. Well despite me crediting that person, that person writes that she doesn’t want it to spread outside of Soompi and that’s it.
He just copied and pasted my whole post thinking a one line thank you at the end would suffice. And he puts up the whole post on his personal blog, making it seem like he only took bits and pieces from me, like he paraphrased my post when in fact it’s plagiarized verbatim. And it’s not just me, he does it all the time to other people and it’s damn annoying. (oh credit to that person who wrote this)
Ok I always appreciate and respect people for translating korean articles into english and I would credit them where it’s due. And I paraphrased them because of grammer and trying to make it look concise as much as possible to make it more readable. The last line saying I do it all the time to other people is just stupid and it annoys me too when I see that. It’s not that I don’t want to give credit for most of my articles since I translated it myself.
If you don’t want to get your things plagarized, you might as well just keep it to yourself. Music, movies,etc gets stolen every second, much less words.
Things when it gets on the Internet, it’s hard to police where it goes. People also plagarize my work but I don’t go hunting them down or just defame them like I know them very well. I just take it that my work is being spread for the greater good and more can know about people they idolise or stuff. Sometimes I get credited sometimes I don’t, it doesn’t really matter.
I have given a lot translating stuff and posting on YT which isn’t easy. I am a one-man team and I have to translate, check, QC, encode and upload which is hell tedious but I always kept going because of comments thanking me every now and then that comes into my inbox.
But I’m sorry, just one negative post will negate any positives which is really unfortunate. From today, I will not take anymore BS. No more Youtube requests will be entertained, I will not post too much news anymore or just keep this blog private. I shall only post what I want to. The end.
I feel like closing and stopping everything and just become a silent reader.
