++ 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.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
