EDIT: @dragonslayer109 did address and correct the manner promptly, and he deserves credit for that
Perhaps I was a little bull-headed on this particular case, but I feel the need to act promptly in cases of plagiarism draining funds from us all on Steemit. To me it feels like we are all somewhat sharing our wallets with each other, as the content that gets upvotes impacts each of us. If a post starts earning money quickly, you have to act fast to bring attention to it. But in this case I did not give @dragonslayer109 enough time to do so.
He edited his post, reached out to the community for help, and fixed it as quickly as he could.
Good man! Thank you @dragonslayer109 for being so calm and acting professionally.
The Issue and Recommendations to Prevent it
If you are going to share articles and content from other users under your own name, you should trust them and make sure the content won't jeopardize your reputation. Please take the time to verify that the content is original, or is properly cited before posting it. It is dangerous, even if by accident, to represent someone else's information as your own especially when there is an active group of users working on clamping down on plagiarists.
