Weird Plagiarism

December 17, 2009

Something strange is happening. At least two of my blog posts have had the language mangled and been re-published in LiveJournal and In Windows Live. My name was left in on what looks like a badly translated & re-translated version of what I originally wrote. I find this very strange, and annoying.

Has this happened to anyone else? What's the mechanism and the motivation?

Here are some screenshots and links:

How I found out –

Here's what was published in LiveJournal & a link to my original post – https://joanvinallcox.wordpress.com/2009/11/21/mad-women-what-the-1960s-sounded-like/

Here's the Comment blocked unless you join LiveJournal

Here's the Windows Live post and my original one – https://joanvinallcox.wordpress.com/2009/10/29/last-night-at-the-hpca-meeting/

Again, I can't comment unless I get an account in Windows Live, which I won't do.

This is what they have in common, sort of
 –  

Can anyone please explain, or point me to an explanation?
