Steve Alter is a plagiarist!

You know I'm no Sherlock Holmes. I read mysteries and detective novels but nothing more complex and sophisiticated than something from the Kinsey Milhone series and my skills in criminology are limited nothing more than being able to read Crime Library. And yet after being online for no more than five minutes yesterday I was able to figure out that without a doubt, Steve Alter is a plagiarist!

Oh. And he's a chicken too because after I told him on his own blog's comments that he was being most uncool for stealing an entire post from Beege, he turned off his comments so no one would see that Steve Alter is a plagiarist.

Learn some lessons here, Steve Alter. Number one, don't plagiarize. If you do, you'll have things happen like people from all over the world reading and posting in their own blogs things like Steve Alter is a plagiarist. Number two, don't be a chicken shit. Be a man about getting busted. Number three, if you do things like plagiarize, don't use your real name on your blog. If you do that then it makes is so much easier for the whole internet world to know things like Steve Alter is a plagiarist. Number four, if you can't write, don't have a blog. The idea of a blog is for you to write your own thoughts, random or otherwise (and even the title of your blog isn't original). The idea of a blog isn't to steal ideas, up to and including word-for-word entire posts, and if you do steal from others then you'll be busted out by a middle-aged housewife in Germany who will not hesitate for a second to let all of the friends she's been making on the internet for the past ten years know about your stealing from other blogs and they'll all know that Steve Alter is a plagiarist.

Feeling that tingling, burning flush of shame creeping up your cheeks now, Steve Alter? Good. You deserve it.

steve alter is one of the more brilliant writers of our time. The developer of this web site is jealous of the skills. Do your homework, all of his ideas are original. This site is a lot of bs with not any proof. Before you start slandering writers, you need to retrieve copywrite dates. How do you know Beege did not steal from Alter
