Stalker Plagiarizes Another Blog




It should come as no surprise that someone who would belittle Eric Stolz wouldn't have any problems with something like plagiarism. The following is how a post from the MoreNotesFromUnderground Blog originally appeared today:

Monday, February 18, 2008
"The following takes place between Antonin Scalia and his Tivo box
Last week Antonin Scalia said that
torture is okay by the US constitution so long as it's for interrogation purposes as opposed to punishment. Others have been quick to point out that this is another case of Scalia watching too much 24. I'd like for interviewers to find out what other ideas Scalia has gleaned from TV. Perhaps we should issue ugly sunglasses to all government counter-terrorism agencies, they can take them off and put them on at appropriate moments - this gets results:"

Now, read the stalker's plagiarized version of this very same article with her anti-David Caruso spin. The items in red never appeared in the original post:

"Last week Antonin Scalia said that torture is okay by the US constitution so long as it's for interrogation purposes as opposed to punishment. Others have been quick to point out that this is another case of Scalia watching too much "24".We'd like for interviewers to find out what other ideas Scalia has gleaned from TV. Perhaps we should issue ugly sunglasses [like the one David Caruso - the skinny, pale, wrinkled, wimp with a smug attitude who seems to think that t a l k i n g r e a l s l o w makes him into a tough guy - wears] to all government counter-terrorism agencies, so they can take them off and put them on at appropriate moments - this gets results." Brackets added by Sarakanne

Although the stalker credited MoreNotesFromUnderground as her source, she never bothered to alert readers that she had added her own negative words about Caruso. Words, mind you, that NEVER appeared in the original. Altering key words and phrases in an original work without noting it is also considered plagiarism.

The stalker then pounced on the opportunity to comment as soon as this article appeared in the blog feeds:
"David Caruso as secret weapon against Al Quida - PRICELESS!!!"

"To the Blog Owner: Now that you have mentioned David Caruso, you may have unwittingly set yourself up to be the next victim of Caruso's indicted Austrian stalker. If she shows up here, she will post a negative comment about Caruso. When someone else arrives and says something pro-Caruso, she will engage in a non-stop commenting [war] with that person/persons until she gets the last comment posted on your blog. Last summer, Rob Steiner was forced to close down his mobblog after the stalker and Caruso fans posted over 200 comments. Mr. Steiner posted a photo of David Caruso's home in LA.
Good luck to you."

"To the Blog Owner: I knew it wouldn't be long before you were the stalker's next target. You might also be interested to know that the stalker has re-written your blog article. See the following link for the Stalker's version of YOUR work: http://www.zimbio.com/ David+Caru...ture+instrument If it's any consolation, you are not the first blog owner to be plagiarized by the Austrian stalker." sarakanne 02.18.08 - 7:53 pm #

The blog owner's response is what is priceless here:

"That's really weird. I didn't know anyone was that hardcore for David Caruso"

"She's a nut job to say the least. Last summer, with the help of the FBI, Austrian officials indicted her after she threatened to murder Caruso. She has also threatened his toddler and his female companion. She cannot gain entry in the U.S. any longer. While she awaits trial in Austria, she floods the Internet with libel and defamatory remarks directed at Caruso. Here are some other links that will give you an insight into this idiot's head:

Fantastic article Sara! Says it all so beautifully. I recall a lovely family who developed a blog site of their holiday for their friends, family. They met David Caruso. Their kids were involved in this fun family holiday and net exercie. Sadly, this family became the next target of this foul and despicable excuse for a human being. Deplete of any conscience, completely convinced that she is the victim and thus has the right to malign and denegrate anyone who demonstrates any pleasure at all if it vaguely to Mr Caruso.

She's like an uninvited house guest. The only way to get rid of her is burn down the house.
