I have some problems with this post.
Firstly, you tell us CanMi’s article is a rip-off when you don’t actually know who ripped off who. Yes, I know you said ‘someone less diplomatic’, but you still posted the words ‘rip-off’ right there, allowing them to seep into people’s minds regardless.
Secondly, it feels like a witch hunt.
Thirdly, a phenomenon I’ve experienced personally on Medium, is akin to the idea of the collective unconscious. Independent people come up with the same ideas at the same time, for many reasons. The startling timings that you’ve posted could suggest that both authors were inspired by a third party, or the outside influences of the world have created a subconscious inspiration in them both that’s resulted in these articles.
Fourthly, I always believe that airing dirty laundry in public is not a good idea, especially if it’s not your own.
