++ to liverpole for making it easy and fun to spend all my votes today. :)

This is bizarre. If jesuashok's home node is genuine, and it looks like it is, we know where he works and what he looks like.

The only rationale must be to accumulate XP. It's not like VzjaGRA spam, where there's a direct financial incentive to continue the behavior. So I don't think we'll have an ongoing problem now that it's been detected. It's galling, though, to think of all the hours people have spent answering these plagiarized nodes, duplicating effort expended elsewhere.

For anybody playing the XP game: if you uncover a plagiarized node and present evidence, I'll upvote you.

    That gave me the idea to google for "Vallent Systems". Hmmm...

    Update: Come to think of it, maybe it's just another of jesuashok's spelling mistakes. :-)
