"Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May" is a poem by Robert Herrick. This poem portrays our existence on earth, and that people age as life goes on, and everything becomes boundless. Herrick here urges people to take advantage of youth and energy while they may! The poem is in the genre of carpe diem, to seize the day.

COPYCAT



Earlier today one of the readers commented on my blog and told me that he read almost exactly the same post as mine "Bon Appetit". I asked him for the link, and checked it out for myself... and OH MY GOD! That blogger did not even bother to change most of it... but added some lines here and there to make it a bit different.... I have saved it in JPEG format so you can click on it and compare! I even commented on her blog... she deleted the whole post! I went back and check and to my surprise she wrote another post under the title 'Carpe Diem'. Now if you check the entry to my blog you will read:

That totally sucks. It happens to me, too, they will publish one of my entries with some totally bogus name on it. I comment, and my comment disappears. Most of the ones who do it are commercial sites. I wish they would come up with their own material.

Ansam said...

Sunny-
LOL its ok! I am glad you told me about it

Fa6ma-
Yes my friend told me that! but I mean she didnt even make an effort to rephrase it! She just added few lines here and there... and when I commented she deleted the whole post!

I had a case of reverse plagiarism .. I wrote a post, someone sent it as a forward (without my name), then someone else received it and claimed that my original post was copied from the forwarded email... It was quite ironic really.

Ansam said...

Kthekuwaiti-
I think I know that email! Its the one with ZAIN and NMTC phone number changes... cuz I received it by email after I read about it on your blog!

LaLa said...

Haha, that's pathetic! il moshkila ina she copied the foods also, "Kubbah, Jereesh, Marag, Rice, Shrimps, Sauces, Salad, Stuffed Grape Leaves... AND MUCH MORE!" Who would do that? that's so stupid!

Ansam said...

LaLa-
LOL I KNOW! It IS funny!

Hamitaf La B. said...

Kthekuwaiti said...

It was one of my recent posts (Living the Legend) .. the forwarded one about the new numbers actually gave me credit (someone even made me a logo!).

pearls said...

lool at copycat, plz come up with sth of your own!!!

and ppl thought I was weird!!! When I first started working I refused to eat with some of my coworkers because they had no problem with double dips. It's like they don't mind sharing their saliva! Until one day they asked how come you don't eat with us! I told them. They were so much pissed, it insulted them so much!! But I told them why. Now things are different. We all use disposable forks and knives.

Ansam said...

Hamitaf La B.-
LOL you think?

Kthekuwaiti-
Oh ok! That sux! Ignore them

Y3ni u have to write an essay or something and ur pushed for time and u dont know what to write...u copy something and hand it in....its wrong.. but i can understand the logic behind it...

But to copy something off someones blog and post it as ur own..... why ?!

im speechless..

Ansam said...

Delicately Realistic-

I know what you mean... you said it very well!

"You dont HAVE to write anything if u cant think of anything...."

Grey said...

That takes some guts to copy to the teeth without giving the credit and it take 'Grace' not to embarrass the blogger further ...

Ansam said...

Grey-
