Of Plagiarism and Cystitis

We will return to Irish India next time.

I know a lot of folk cut & paste Wikipedia articles to their sites, and never site the source, but even in the cut-throat world of veterinary advice blogs does the scourge of plagiarism appear. Below are two links to veterinary sites in which the owners recount a case of a cat with cystitis. It is the exact same story only the names have been changed. Why? Laziness? Writer not a real vet and needed a case?

The earlier entry is Pete the Vet's site, with the Irish (the Irish again!) vet's entry being 9 months later.

After further investigation . . .

Good grief, it's the same guy! He plagiarized his own stuff. Okay, really, he just told the same story but changed the name of the cat. In case the cat wanted to sue, I guess.

I shouldn't waste the space and post this, but I spend a good five minutes writing about it, so up it goes.
