Stick a fork in Avicenna - he's done. I can't see him getting away without a complete public confession and apology.

If I was one of his plagiarized targets I would demand it front and center on FfTB's homepage.

This disproves Avi's defense of shitty internet and power in India. He was in Manchester when he posted this guardian ripoff on 26th august

The rules are pretty simple: you have to guess which of two quotes is the original, and which is the plagiarized version by Avicenna.

Links are given at the end to the original texts -- but no peeking until you've made your picks!

So:
The Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Exam board (OCR) launched an investigation into exam malpractice at the Yesodey Hatorah Jewish Voluntary Aided girls' secondary school after the National Secular Society formally asked it to follow up unconfirmed reports that teachers had redacted questions in this year's GSCE science exam.

The precise questions that were blacked out has not been revealed by OCR, but earlier this year a Jewish education consultant warned that evolution in the new GCSE science curriculum could pose problems for strictly Orthodox schools.

The investigation confirmed pupils were left disadvantaged by being unable to access 3 marks out of 75 for a unit in a higher GCSE science exam, and 1 mark out of 75 for a unit on a lower paper.

Which is the original, and which from our favorite copyright infringer?

I for one wouldn't use derogatory names or terms for Avicenna - just let his actions speak for themselves.

Speaking of which: Plagiarism. It's an action that is not okay. Here's another example:

I have not gotten the hang of big screenshots, nor shading part of them; the 2 sections below are from Avicenna's blogpost linked above:

And here's the source for those 2 sections (unless Avicenna would like to claim the Los Angeles Daily News plagiarized from him):

(the [...] is mine, indicating cut text. Also, I cut out the footnotes from the Wikipedia version -- that would have made it too easy. No need to do that with Avi's version, of course; but I did need to remove numerous 'Â' characters from his fucked-up copypasting.)

So, let's kick off with a soccer-themed one (geddit?):
Soccer is running America into the ground, and there is very little anyone can do about it. Social critics have long observed that we live in a therapeutic society that treats young people as if they can do no wrong. Every kid is a winner, and nobody is ever left behind, no matter how many times they watch the ball going the other way. Whether the dumbing down of America or soccer came first is hard to say, but soccer is clearly an important means by which American energy, drive, and competitiveness is being undermined to the point of no return.

Avi claims to have access to the medical records of an underage rape victim from Afghanistan:

http://web.archive.org/web/201409230915 ... ith-blood/
The story goes as follows. A 10 year old girl was raped by Mullah Mohammed Amin in a mosque. The mullah claims it was consensual which is puzzling. Since this is rape and in Afghanistan? The spectre of honour crime raises it’s head. Family members openly planned to kill the girls. In order to protect her, the rapist agreed to marry his victim.
The medical evidence so far supports rape. From what I have seen of the report?

The rape was so violent it caused a recto-vaginal fistula. A hole between the vaginal wall and the rectum. She only survived due to medical care and was bleeding so profusely she nearly went into hypovolaemic shock. And even this was delayed.

The Mullah claim she is 17, while her medical records show clear patterns of her being less than 12 years of age. Her dentition, bone growth and her lack of secondary sexual characteristics and menstruation all support her age.
He repeated the claim in a facebook discussion quoted by Kaveh Mousavi:

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/marginofer ... ghanistan/
Yesterday I wrote about an aquaintance getting turfed out of Afghanistan for trying to ssave a 10 year old girl from her rapists who is a Mullah. Afghan Government Officials sent her death threats, Taliban sent her death threats, The Mullah send her death threats and the Child’s Family sent her death threats.

WE don’t know if the child is alive anymore. Just that her family was planning to kill her and the child was given back to them.

Nope. People wanted to discuss Jaclyn… The things that hit and miss and go viral are so weird that I have no ideaa what is and what isn’t good blogging anymore.
Yeah considering I had to read the medical examination of a 10 year old rape victim…. That was fun….

But such is the issue with blogs. You never know what will go viral. Some of the stuff that goes viral has me going “Seriously? I wrote that on a train because I was bored”
