Me either. The saving principle is to always, always credit your sources, even if it’s a vague “I read this article on …, can’t remember the name, it’s about …”.

It’s actually very rare to come up with an idea on our own — like once or twice in a lifetime, if we’re lucky.

A person who doesn’t talk about their inspiration carries less weight (though admittedly only for those who care, else fraud like this wouldn’t exist).
