Plagiarism dispatch[edit]

Hi Kablammo, given recent discussions, I'd like to re-run your old "Let's get serious about plagiarism" dispatch from 2009. Would you have any objections? If needed, I'd love for you to make any pertinent updates or changes. Best, Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 17:37, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

I have no objections. I doubt that any updates are needed— the prohibition of plagiarism is based on simple ethics, which do not change. The internet may make plagiarism easier, but does not make it right. Kablammo (talk) 17:04, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I've copied the old article to here. You don't have to tell me; I caught seven undergraduates plagiarizing last week. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 19:09, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Removing one source tags[edit]

Hi Kablammo, please don't remove the one source tags for the sections until there is more than one source used as a reference. That's the purpose of the tag. Hopefully other editors will see those and realize that those sections need help and references and will improve the page. ThanksMonopoly31121993 (talk) 22:16, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Monopoly31121993, where the text recites what the source says, and cites to the relevant pages of the publicly-available online source, we don't need an additional source to tell us what we already know. The section in question needs no help or additional references, and there is no better reference for what the report says than the report itself. The addition of a tag such as you added adds nothing, and detracts from the article. Kablammo (talk) 02:04, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
