 Shoeboy Is a No-Talent Plagiarist

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:
Feb 19, 2002
As many of you know, one Shoeboy, Adequacy editor and database hacker, made an April Fool's day post to the LKML (Linux Kernel Mailing List) over 6 months ago. Most of it was based on a certain piece of writing by yours truly, Trollaxor. This seems innocuous enough except that Shoeboy, in using my work, was plagiarising.

[editor's note, by shoebot] Trollaxor is leaving out a few key details here. The most important bit was that I fully admit to being a plagiarist. I am also completely aware that I have no talent. But at least I have a girlfriend/surrogate mother whose bosom I can weep into like a frightened girl. I have deleted most of Trollaxor's diary because I am ashamed and embarrassed.

This looks suspiciously like something I posted to back in '89

Adequacy has turned into a cesspool consisting of ... blubbering, superstitious fools arguing with smug, pseudointellectual assholes. -AR

Why don't you two have a slapping fight to figure out who's the manlier man?

(Honestly, do you expect us to care?)

Peace and much love...

I do expect you to care. Shoeboy is a plagiarizer!

"Imagine that, even the synonym can be taken to mean steal. And that's exactly what Shoeboy did."
