The word that came to mind when I saw this post about this case this morning was "griefing". That's not a plagiarism case, really. Plagiarism was merely the means the griefer used to troll fandom. The desired payoff was the pages of outraged comments to the stolen story, the proof that the long deception had the desired effect. If you want to frustrate this person, just make him/her go poof from your life: defriend, ban, killfile silently. Interfere with the game's payoff (in the transactional analysis sense).

Haven't talked myself out of my software project. Instead have talked husband into it. Ha. Am in the thinking & note-taking stages, but will tip over into some messy implementation soon.

Rainstorm has finally hit us in earnest. Wet and windy. The animals are jibbing when asked to go outside: dog-walks end in sudden U-turns. I am delaying getting out of bed longer than I really should. Sigh.

ETA: Eee! Another nomination: "Breaking Glass" for Fang Fetish round 8.
