Let's call plagiarism what it is - theft. So easy to do and so very tempting.
I would love for our readers to use information or pictures from this blog. I only hope that such use would be credited to "Notes from the Hills/Hackett Tree." Or mention "TRAEA's Grandma." Or something else indicating that our pithy words and mellifluous prose were added to yours, rather than originating with you.
I don't worry about perfect attribution approved by The Chicago Manual of Style or MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. Just a simple acknowledgement.
And for those who are determined to steal anyway - well, if this Grandma finds out (as my high school students learned I can), I promise to tell the world. Only a plagiarist can decide whether such publicity would outweigh the chagrin.
Thanks for avoiding any temptation to steal.
