    That last link is so great! After the first line I thought I’d been getting things terribly wrong…then I realised, ha! I went on to read some of the author’s other articles, she’s hilarious, so witty! Thanks for the discovery.

    I’m conflicted about the problem of designer plagiarism. Work Hard and Be Nice to People is what every parent says to their child. Do Your Homework. It’s OK. Always Play Fair. Tell the Truth. Even – Go To Your Room. How are these phrases so special? Why is it plagiarism? Choosing the font or the layout, perhaps. But not the phrases. They’ve been around for centuries. At least I Love NY has elements of design in it, incorporating a shape and blocking the message. To me, something substantial needs to be added to the mundane to make it a design.

    I don’t run a blog or an online news portal, but I briefly held an account with a pregnancy-themed message board forum. The vitriol-packed comments I attracted for my benign remarks on drinking a glass of red wine or considering a certain baby name blew me out of the water . . . definitely not a kind, supportive, safe internet destination for a woman whose hormones have her feeling a little loopy as-is. I deleted my account. I definitely feel for bloggers, journalists, or anyone who makes a living by placing their views on the internet for anyone to comment on. Yes, you have to be tough enough to accept criticism . . . haters gonna hate. Good criticism is useful. But, the type of abuse discussed in this article is insane. Comments sections are always going to be terrible because people suck. Heavy moderation with well-defined rules (like what the Guardian is doing) is the only way to do it, I think. I hope the journalists aren’t exposed too much to the pre-moderated comments . . . that would kill my morale, much in the way that the b*tch who exasperatedly told me Hailey is a stupid name made me want to eat a whole box fudge-cicles.
