Even if you know nothing about the recent plagiarism case that's been big news in the YA blogging community, My Three Cents On The Story Siren Plagiarism Case at Read, React, Review is a marvelous post on issues relating to it. The philosophy professor who maintains this blog covers:
1. The difference between a personal apology and a restorative apology.
2. Bloggers who don't believe blogging is writing. (My own three cents is that perhaps they should be doing something else.)
3.In response to some of the responses to this case--"I’m sorry to see some women participate so eagerly in a tradition that
casts women as morally stunted, selfish children, unable to think past
their own out of control emotions"
