Sifting through foreign language reviews to cull the plagiarists from people who're actually writing about my game is my new favourite pass time =_=

It bugs me enough when I see "writers" doing it in my own language, but there's an extra layer of disappointment when I find that the work of someone who's gone through the effort to play/read my English game and write about their experiences in another language has just been copied and pasted without attribution.

Don't get me wrong - I'm very much against the current state of copyright law, and I believe that a culture that can't own and iterate on its own works is a fatally unhealthy one, but geeze, acknowledging whose shoulders/coat tails you're riding on is still important
