Is This What You Call A Copycat?

I logged in to Innit just now, just checking around because I'm still not sleepy yet. Then, I saw a post with the title "I Just Love Good Smelling People", so I clicked and read her post. When I read her post, I was like "WTF!!"! Why you ask?

Have you read the paragraph above? Well, now read this. Spot the similarity? If just using the crowded bus story, I wouldn't have say anything about it because it's normal that people think about that situation. But she even copy the details like "staying a distance but can't because the bus is crowded and have to bear with it till we reach our destination". I showed it to my friend, and he who've read my post first also felt that she COPIED MY IDEA!!!

You might say, no big deal, but hello! You wanna win some cash, then use your own F**king idea la! Why go steal people's idea!? Do you know how irritating is it to see someone just changed some words and made it into their work? I sat in front of my PC to think how should I write my advertorial, and she so senang just copy it huh?

You might say, are you sure that it's her who copied you and not the other way round? Well just see for yourself...

I posted mine 7 hours and 32 minutes ago

While her's is posted 2 hours and 27 minutes ago!

Judge for yourself, what do you think? Am I wrong to say that she STOLE my idea? Or do you think that I'm just too sensitive? Actually I shouldn't be posting her link here, as this will make curious people to visit her blog and increase her blog traffic, but doesn't matter. I just want to everyone to see and judge!!

UPDATED 11/3/10, 7.12pm:
I went and see her blog again and noticed that she has disabled comment only for that particular post. And Shiselle who read this post, saw that the Copycat copied part of her post too!! So that is what her post is made of, parts and bits of other people's post! She seriously sux!

UPDATED 15/3/10, 2.59am:
She did not apologise, but she removed the advertorial anyway. So I guess that's the end of this Copycat issue. I wanna thank all the Nuffnangers who supported me =)

thanx lol. I doubt that..that post is actually an advertorial, which is why we have the same title. But the content is not supposed to be the same..

Shiselle said...

She copied mine too! The part "but you can't just go to the people with body odour and tell them 'hey you're stink your body odour makes me feel like puking', it was my idea!!!!!!!!!!!

Simon Seow said...

So, it's cut here, paste, cut there, paste kind of copycat huh lol. Sigh. It's not very hard to write right this kind of post? Why lah have to go copy other ppl's post. Tsk,tsk,tsk.

saya_arief said...

hate copycat..

araleling said...

Support on you. That is bad to copy a person idea and did not even bother to write on their own words -_-"

Rabia Sensei said...

Hm...because of rm20, people can do such kind of thing. No worries. Since you already highlight/defend your right; maybe the nuffnang team have this things all covered.

Maybe after this, you can put certain code that disable copy things.

Kenzo said...

OMG...but the only first 100 will receive the RM20 and the nuff team was already go through your article and she will be no chance of being the part of this contest. so expel!

kRaZy said...

Rabia:
I know there are code to disable right click, but sometimes it's a bit inconvenient without right click =/

Kenzo:
She removed her advertorial ady..so I guess it won't be valid anymore =)
