seems to me a bridge too far
I understand (at least conceptually — it hasn’t happened to me) the pain of being plagiarized, and…

I certainly appreciate you reading and taking the time to comment and share your opinion. Please let me clarify that statement a little more. I read and consume intellectual work from several sources of media and written books. When I’m creating a piece of work in which I’m trying to add “something new” to the topic I am vigilent about simply consuming and regurgitation or paraphrasing what’s already been said. I refer to this practice of mine not within a discourse but within writing an article that may stand alone as origianl. Which I might add does not happen as often as a writer wishes to think. I hope I haven’t further muddied the waters in this direction. Best wishes! S Lynn
