Standing Against Plagiarism

This just hurts my soul. There are some things I hate with a fury: bullies, abusers, people who steal the efforts of another. Here is such a story.

Rachel Ann Nunes had one of her stories stolen by someone using the pen name Sam Taylor Mullens, whose real name seems to be Tiffanie Rushton. I say this "seems to be" her real name as she has twenty-two aliases, per a recent post entitled "Utah Schoolteacher Charged with Plagiarism and Cyberbullying" at http://www.davidfarland.net/writing_tips/?a=414.

If you care to donate even $5 toward Ms. Nunes's court costs, go here:
