    Maybe take note to the fact that everything other than that portion is listed word for word, and he copied a different portion (word for word -- again) in a separate post on the first page?

    You all are blind and clueless. Nice work chump, copy and paste is hard.

    Anyone else feels it's plagiarism?
    Anyone thinks it's self promotion?

    What am I promoting? I don't like that my hard work was copied. Again, "supermod" do you understand what plagiarism is?

    I didn't say you were promoting anything.

    I was raising the question. You have a problem with other people versing their opinion? So far, there are 4 guys (me, Wischeez, Wizard, normalsizedmidget) who don't think it's plagiarism. One (you) vehemently arguing that it is.

    While I don't think it is, if anyone but yourself (for obvious reasons) have a problem with it, then it might be taken down.

    Let me end with this. Is it possible that the guy didn't took it out of you site, and actually never even heard of your site and you? Specially in light of him posting the sources besides each prospect? Is it possible?

    Well. I didn't know this would cause such a mess. In my defense.

    I did not give credit because I cannot link to other forums.

    I did source almost the entire thing out, on my own time, and 90% of the time the links were not on the original thread and I had to find them on my own.

    I do pay for Packer Report so I was able to add more information that was not on the original list.

    Lastly, I did not try to make this to get props, money, or a good grade. I was simply disseminating information for other Packer fans like myself to enjoy.

    PS. I did copy and paste the original list, and I apologize that so greatly upset you, but you were compiling that information from users posting the links and quotes anyways. It's just as much their list as it is yours. You aren't crediting every single person that posted a link for you are you? Anyways, I was just trying to spread this info. Not take credit for it. It was something I was looking for for a long time and I figured maybe others were too.

    Hello Packerforum.com readers/posters,

    First off, let me say that what Normsizedmidget did here was not plagiarism by any means. I was up the night that Norm put this entire thing together and even helped him source a bit of it but for the most part this is all Norms work. Yes, he mite have taken the template that they had over there on FF but last I checked that does not count as plagiarism as Norms body of work here is far more evident then the one posted on FF. You can clearly see who put in the time and effort to their list.

    Secondly, Ginn. Do you even know what plagiarism is? For the record, that little piece of work you have going on over at FF is not YOUR work. It's the posters who posted you the information and all you did was come up with the idea and copy and paste their posts on to your list. So really? You want to talk about Copy and Pasting being hard? Cause that's EXACTLY what your post is.

    So before you go smashing on norm why don't you take a minute and really think about how much time you put into your work because if I remember correctly "copy and pasting is not hard" right? So it's not hard for Norm but apparently it is when you're the one doing the copy and pasting? Nice double standards sweet heart.

    Also, for the record. Since all those lovely people over at FF were gracious enough to help you with your list. Why is it that not one time have you called this a work of FF forum posters ? Why have you stated "My work" in every argument you have made? So in that case, wouldn't it be you that's selling short all those lovely people that helped you generate your list? I'm pretty sure it is.

    Let's try and have less double standards next time pumpkin.

    As for Wizard 87 -- Publicly apologize? FOR WHAT? For defending my hard work? At least NormSizedMidget had the smarts and common sense to alter it and add sources (Which is smart) you just took it straight from me.

    Sadly this topic started off well and now is getting derailed. Here is my attempt to get this back on track or I will have to close the thread down. 1 page of decent conversation, then 3 pages of bickering. Come on guys, lets get this back on track. If anyone still has problems with this thread, please send a PM to me.

    Thanks.

    Here I'll get it back on track. Here's what I have from some recent stuff I've seen around.


    Pilares enjoys a solid pro day - Hawaii News - Staradvertiser.com

    I think it's very telling that we "wanted to see" Pilares work out, considering he's 5 foot 10.
