shocked and angry!!!!!!
 
This site is a real gem thanks to evreybody īs OWN  contributions . I particularly insist on the terms OWN  and  PERSONAL . We all are teachers teaching our pupils that cheating  or copying isn īt fair . It means stealing someone else īs ideas  and  work to get the best of it  , that is to say a good mark!!!
How can some of us expect their kids to be honest with their work and just do the contrary when it comes to contribute to this site .
preparing a ws. is quite a work , I agree but trying to get points by copying other members ws. is just disgusting ! And even more disgusting when pretending  it īs not a copy.( changing the layouts and keeping the same items is copying !!!!)
Yesterday I downloaded a ws. on the British Isles which I founded very useful and thanked the person for it. Late at night I went browsing through some of the members ī ws. and discovered that this ws. was just a copy of someone else īs ws. I didn īt want to report it directly since I am not a moderator , so I sent a PM  to the person whose ws. had been copied.
What a shock when I realised that in today īs contributions the same person did send another ws . which is a copy !!
That will definetly teach me a lesson !
What the hell am I working hard for  ?!! From now on I īll just look for some good ws. copy part of it ,  send it as a new contribution and  then get  lots of points !! EUREKA !
here are the links to the partly or totally copied ws.
 
     have a nice , all of you

The member thanks Alenka as she was his muse ( I guess). Alenka herself wrote 2 comments on that ws and she didn īt seem angry.  Maybe Alberto should tell something.  

PS: Pls add the original links.

I totally agree with you! Unfortunately there are some thieves among us Angry.

In fact it happened to me once - I looked into the new contributions and found there one of my worksheets. I reported it of course, but the bitterly feeling lasted for some time, as I worked on this worksheet for quite a long time, and someone simply took it and uploaded as his or her own.

the pb is : moderators are doing a great job but they are often  too quick on  reporting ws. with watermarked cliparts or because they don īt consider it as esl work.
don īt you think that stealing is worse !

Dear Ikebana,

You have a reporting option, you should use it.

Sorry but I am not a moderator so I am not supposed to report a ws.
I just hope this will be done by the end of the day !

No, Ikebana, I think you might have misunderstood something. Everybody, including you, can and should report.

Oh yes. Anyone can report. The form at the bottom of the page is there for anyone who finds a problem with a worksheet.
