    What happens when someone plagiarized an article and basically tell the writer "screw you" when she ask for compensation?

    Now if they would have only compensated the writer the editor and magazine wouldn't be in the mess they are in right now. What's worse is that it opened a can of worms and probably a class action lawsuit because now writers are digging into past articles and finding more plagiarized articles and stolen pictures.....

    Moral of this story folks:

    Don't piss off the writers!

    P.S.: Now I sorta wish I was that writer...I wonder if she knows how much this publicity could get her more gigs if she plays her cards right...oh well...
