Results for - I would like to comment about plagiarism.

2,319 voters participated in this survey

Plagiarism is presenting someone else's work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. Some TW members have commented about plagiarism in the content of these surveys. Should we be concerned about this?

1. Every now and again I might come up with an original idea and don't mind sharing it but the rest of the time ideas will come from anywhere on the Internet and I don't suggest I am the author. Most articles and info I use in surveys is merely treated as worth sharing. On the surveys we submit on the TW forum should we have to list all our sources?

  • Depends on subject I guess.
  • When maligning someone, like a public figure, I think that the source should be shared so that survey takers can see whether or not the source presents facts or just conjecture.
  • nice they are available

2. I think most TW members realize that material used in surveys is rarely original. Do you agree?

  • Again, human. No problem nor pressure
  • no problem
  • Most are just not interested in others' original material (or opinions).

3. When these surveys on TW are done for the benefit of everyone and the only reward to the individual who posts the survey is 10 points or less, I really don't see that plagiarism is a concern. Do you agree?

  • Not sure.
  • It's not the plagiarism, it's the idiocy and ignorance from some of these racist comments that truly make these lame excuses for human beings unique. And I'm being nice...
  • Did you learn NOTHING in English class?
