TIRU MACAM SAYA!

Last edited 6/3/2008, pic added. See at the bottom.



Thank you soooooo very da much Pi Bani for alerting me.

Now, WHO IS THIS ABSOLUTELAYLA & WHAT IS SHE DOING PLAGIARIZING MY WRITING????

Pi Bani alerted me today on a blog posting she found similar to mine. So I checked out the blog, and my of my, several of my postings are there. The plagiarist (I won’t call her/him a blogger because she/he is severely lacking in originality) posted my blog entries verbatim, except for some names and situation which she/he changed to suit her/his situation.

Check this out:

Going a step further, I actually made a search on all the postings and I found that all her/his postings are copied, other than me, from Princesswaffzonkle’s blog.

There’s nothing original in this blog at all. Everything is copied. Heck, even the tagline I use "I am somebody. I like being me. I need nobody to make me somebody” is copied. (That, by the way, is a quote by Louise L’Amour)

People say, imitation is the best form of flattery. Some people may tell me to be flattered that this person, whoever she or he is, find my writing worthy to be plagiarized. But really, I don’t quite know how to make of it. On the one hand, yes, I am somewhat amazed that someone would copy me. But on the other hand,…

OY! SAYA PENAT-PENAT TULIS TAWWWW!

*flashing middle finger*





Edited. Pics added.



As at 5.14pm on 4/3/2008, the blog absolutelayla.blogspot.com has been removed.



Guess i scared her off....... MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!


Edited again on 6/3/2008

Screen capture pic enlarged so that you can read the copycat version.
Pic added, one I nicked from her profile (without her permission of course, but who needs it when she has conveniently curik what is mine? An eye for an eye baby!):-

Keji, noks. Mari kita spam itu orang.

You know what this means? You are more prominent than moi. Se-feymes2 aku ni (kata mereka la), takde orang nak plagiarise aku nyah. I think going to kill myself now.

Typhoon Sue said...

pugs, *LOL*

jangan jeles yang....

Diphthong said...

thats mean you have made it and recognised as an interesting writer.

Pi Bani said...

Sue,
I happen to stumble upon that blog while I was checking out my blog reactions on technorati, to check out blogs with links to mine. Saw this blog which supposedly had a link to mine, gi visit, tapi tengok takde pulak any links. Agaknya mula-mula dia ciluk sekali links from somebody else's blog kot, lepas tu padam... ;)

When I read the posting about the traffic jam tu, rasa macam pernah baca. So usahalah I gi mencari your posting on the same topic... and sah... SEJIBIK!!

Mula-mula tu terpikir jugak kot kot you ada split personality ke apa ke... kejap jadi Typhoon Sue... kejap jadi Absolutelayla... hehehe...

pugly said...

Eh, she deleted her blog la.

But clever me. I saved up the relevant pages AND her profile page. Guess what my next entry's going to be? *gelak shaitoooonnnn*

Typhoon Sue said...

dipthong:
wow... never thought that would happen

pi bani:
oit! split personality plak.... :-)
owang lain lah!
thanks to your sleuthing, I scared her off.... HAHAHAHA

pugly:
ya la... so fast dia baca my posting.. and so fast dia delete .
Hmmm...TAU TAKUT...

*looking forward to pugly's posting*
*LOL*

Leen said...

Hehe I have also started a blog to deposit all blog plagiarists. I keep yew posted yah.

Typhoon Sue said...

leen, wokeh.
*thumbs up*

Diphthong said...

takde sesapa nak plagiat saya ka?

it's boringla having your work quoted as yours, sekali sekala nak jugak merasa kena plagiat.

Manal said...

Copycat!!! (pun intended)

Good for PiBani for notifying ASAP.

But that plag-person acts fast too!

Ini kes peer pressure ke ape on the need of having a blog?

Typhoon Sue said...

diphthong:
u write something, nanti i plagiat, I janji.....
;)

manal:
i think she's under a delusion, living her lives through others. For example, like in my posting Let's Have a Baby, it is about an actual conversation with my friend W who is adopting a baby. When she copied it, she changed the name "W" to 'Aleez', and modified the conversation where I said I didn't want a baby to suit hers already having 2 kids. I'm certain that so-called conversation of hers NEVER TOOK PLACE, and possibly, there's no such person as Aleez either. It's imaginary. She's delusional. Same as in the other postings, nothing of the sort ever happened to her. She was 'photostating' things that happened to other people and passing it off as hers.

princesswaffzonkle said...

weih i left a comment here yday .. wot happened to it? takkan comment pun obsoletelayla want to curik also? u suck btw layla, if that is your real name.. frickin fraudster.

hey typhoonsue, thanks for alerting me on this. my skin crawled when i read my entries in her blog.

please get ur own life layla. tak malu ka.

Typhoon Sue said...

princess:
u left comment y'day? tak de pun.... tak go thru kut

anyway, glad u managed to catch her blog before she deleted it.

elviza said...

Sick lunatic person on the net! Help!

Pakai nama Layla pulak tuh (thats my fave name for gils! Urghhh)

elviza said...

By the way Sue (lupa nak quote tadi)

"immitation is the sincerest form of flattery," there, I copied it from Sex & the City. Season 3 (me thinks)

Typhoon Sue said...

elviza:
i hope u weren't reserving that name for your future daughter :-)

sincere ke dia tuh?

Kak Teh said...

really? really? really? This is terrible and yes, the blog has been deleted. I found some pictures of mine in other people's blogs. Tak ada pun nak credit or even say - nicked from such and such a blog - which is fine. But to just take a picture and not say anything - that is bad. and to take entries from a blog and claim ownership - that is worse! Absolute curi tu!

Typhoon Sue said...

kakteh:
sat, sat nak pikiaq.... have i ever stolen pics from ur blog? errr... tak dak kut no? hehe

yup. absolute curi. no doubt about it

KC said...

Aiayak! she has deleted her blog! ceh! Wahhh...malu siot! LOL!

Orang macam ni pun ada ka? God, what ever is the matter with them??

Errr...wonder if I could pujuk PUgly to share her profile which Pug managed to save :)

kimster said...

wow.
pinjam ideas tu takpe la jugak, but to lift the whole thing is just mindboggling.

Hjh Esah Jolie said...

alamak....aku pun banyak taww copy and paste kau punya posting...nasib baik tak kena name and shame...

larikkkkkkkkkk

Kak Teh said...

sue, dak aiiiihhhh. kalau nak ambik tak paaa...kata ambik pun cukuplah kan??

Typhoon Sue said...

KC:
bodek le pugly tuh, musti dia share...

kimster:
yup. what is more mind-boggling is that those postings are mostly not opinion pieces, essays or something like that, but personal accounts, including conversations and all. So, that brings to mind, is this person living her life thru mine?

makji:
bila kau copy and paste aku punya entry nih? aku baca blog kau hari-hari tawwww! takde pon....!

kakteh:
ye la kakteh, mintak permission and then give credit where credit is due. baru betul kan?

Typhoon Sue said...

makji:
by the way, aku punya 'TAWWWWW' tu aku copy kau tawwwww!
:-)

pugly said...

Mari! Mari! Siapa mahu lihat itu Absolute BS punya profile!

Click here

pugly said...

BTW, I've also got photographic evidence of all the entries plagiarised. Tq.

zhmi said...

Absolutelayla copied your entries lock, stock and barrel? Wow, that's so pathetic! And whatever gives her the idea that she could get off scot-free? It's a fair assumption that she's a fan of yours; then again, any T-Sue fan worth his/her salt would know that it doesn't pay to rile you. Btw, Sue, you might not want to give this creature the satisfaction of having her face prominently displayed on your blog becoz that could be the kind of publicity this Shamelesslayla is craving for.

Hjh Esah Jolie said...

cinabeng kawwwwww.....hahahaha

Typhoon Sue said...

pugly:
cayalah lu!
*thumbs up*

taruk le image all the entries tu pulak, boleh org scrutinise macamana dia cedok citer i and taruk nama dia

zhmi:
no lah... this is the wall of shame for her. if she enjoys this publicity, then she is even more pathetic than we all thought- the lowest on the rung.
i put her face up just to let everyone see who she is, and if you into her on the sidewalk, just give her a tight slap on the forehead for me, will ya!

makji:
*LOL*

Kak Teh said...

Sue, it gets better and better! I clicked on Pugly's click here, and guess what i found? The profile 'About me' sounds so familiar - especially the middle part starting with 'I'm a go for it kind of person...." That's the profile of Ruby Ahmad!

Pi Bani said...

Agaknya the former-absolute-now-obsolete-Layla came here to get another of your posting to ciluk kot.

Tengok-tengok nama dia terpampang punya besar... maka dinyahkanlah blognya sebelum sempat ditatap makhluk-makhluk lain...

J.T. said...

Hi Sue

Wow... I am shocked! Good that you caught her pic and put it up. Scared her away, you did. I wonder what drove her to plagiarising your work. (yes, it is hard work indeed and no one has the right to take it!) :)

I hope I have not stolen pics from anyone's blog. :P (sorry if I did).
Internet adalah ... when I go in search of images.
If anyone picks up my original pics from a search, the stamp of my blog address will be shown. That's like acknowledging already and it is ok to me. :)

thewailer said...

and the plagiarist gets her fame, the wrong kind :)

Typhoon Sue said...

kakteh:
O H M Y G O D!!! It is!!!
she tiru everybody izzit???

Those are Ruby Ahmad's words indeed:
"I'm a 'go for it!' kind of person. I act on impulse and am a great believer in tackling head-on in approaching any problem. Being an eternal optimist, I believe the nitty gritties will sort itself out at the end! I place great faith in the positive aspects of human nature and that we should all work in this light so as to live in a humane and just society."

I'm sure the rest of her 'About Me' description is a cut and paste job from other people too. Anybody else want to do more sleuthing??? Pls do and let us know. I dah tak larat nak search dah.

Typhoon Sue said...

pi bani:
itulah. musti dia terperanjat beruk. I wish i have a picture of her masa terperanjat beruk tu. musti syok
hahaha

JT:
if anyone's copying something, image or a paragraph or two from someone else, they should always state so, or just provide a link of some kind. It's not too bad to cedok ideas or copy a certain style, but to copy someone else's writing and change the names quoted is absolutely bodoh.

the wailer:
yup. bet she didn't see that coming.

ruby ahmad said...

Hello Typhoon Sue,

I was alerted by K Teh about this kerfuffle! Duh! She certainly loved your entries and Princesswaffzonkle's but not my entries..he he. She just wanted to clone me..LOL! Some people have some life's issues they needed to address here. 'Menggeleng kepala' in amazement indeed.

Pi's so sharp to have noticed this ciplak-ing! Am still amazed...

Typhoon Sue said...

hi ruby, yea. some people are so unoriginal like that..

i guess a lot of people want to 'clone' you in one way or another, but this person actually went ahead with a muka tak malu and copy your words sebijik-sebijik, so it is definitely pathetic. i think she has low self-esteem. kesian....

FairyGodmother said...

sheet!

and i thought i was lazy...

eeee...tak malunya!

err..but then, imitation is the highest form of flattery!

Typhoon Sue said...

fairygodmother:
I am flattered, in a weird way.
