I discovered yesterday that that `Dowry of a Single Galleon' had

been plagiarized by someone named Sweetness on Colored Grey. I was
furious, and both left a scathing review and sent an email with
appropriate links to the admin (Raffy) about it.
For anyone's interest, Sweetness' story was called "Betrothed
Without a Will," (http://www.contraveritas.com/archive/viewstory.php?
sid=734). It was a badly plagiarized version
sid=273&i=1). [ed. when something's already well-written, why muck
I alerted the Quiet Ones group, and, mea culpa, forgot to leave a
note here. Within a short few hours the author removed the story
herself, and I've been sent a letter by the Colored Grey admin team
advising me that her account has been terminated.
I'd like to think that this was a case of someone who was very, very
young and simply made a huge mistake... regrettably, I've been
bitten more than once for my more sympathetic tendencies.
I'm simply glad that this was resolved so quickly.
