Someone archived PZ's post defending Avi and saying that he knows who Avi is, etc, yes?

I'm calling it right now. Nothing will happen. If there is any response from PZ it will be special pleading as to why he hasn't done anything wrong. Otherwise Avi will not lose his blog. There will be no apology or mention of this.

I am willing to real money on this. Not a lot but anyone wants to bet lets talk. Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.

I do agree with you. And you know what? He already proved, more than once, that he's perfectly OK with the hypocrisy of his positions. Doxxing (it's ok when I do it to Skeptickle!), blacklisting (it's ok when I do it to Abbie Smith!), threatening to stab people (it's ok when I do it to Christians!), calling rape accusations fake (it's ok when I do it to mine!), you name it. What is a little Avicenna shittery compared to that? Small fries, that's what.

Now, if somehow (and I have my doubts that this is a possible outcome) Ed Brayton ends with some C&D letters from the sources Avicenna plagiarized, then things may be different. Or maybe Myers will double down and act all mighty, "the big press is trying to harass us!" and become more of a joke than he already is. Either way, popcorn aplenty!

A clear case of plagiarism. Yes, he exchanged a couple of words, but the structure and wording of the sentence is unique enough that it should be absolutely obvious that he merely cut and pasted ....

PZ Myers, in 2014, wrote:...he has done the unforgivable: serial plagiarism, and when caught out, has apologized, but simultaneously belittled the seriousness of the offense and blamed it on a campaign by our little neo-conservative atheist cabal of Harris and Boghossian.

I agree that they are wrong about so much else, but when they’re right, they’re right, galling as it is. This is a situation that requires much more reflection and far greater amends than Werleman has given it. He has also effectively written himself out of any of the debates, internal or external, about atheism.

Avicenna is as blatant & as prolific as Werleman was in plagiarsing. Myers cannot ignore Avi's while calling out Werleman in such a decisive manner. If FTB fail to act on this they will be the laughing stock they so richly deserve to be.



Now watch them excuse it & ignore it.

I bet 20 rayshuls but I didn't have any to back my bet up. She only ponied up (sorry Matt) some reverse vampire porn.

Shit... I bet that when FTB / Ed Brayton get the slightest whiff of a pissed off journalist that Avicenna plagiarized... down goes the blog. Floosh, like a turd that greg laid.

I think you are wrong based on the Laden precedent. Laden used to blog on FTB but got kicked off the network when Justin Griffith produced emails Laden had sent him with an abusive and threatening tone. I think that was a situation where then incident became impossible to ignore and so PZ and Brayton didn't. IMO this is a similar situation to that. So I think Avicenna will get kicked off the FTB network.

On the other hand, Vacula and Zvan kept ties to Laden, and probably the same thing will happen here. Avi will set up a wordpress blog, and Peezis will be approvingly quoting its variously plagiarized content in 2-3 months.

Any scenario is possible, but places like the Guardian not only have much deeper pockets should they be pissed off - but - and probably more important - that they have a much larger audience and greater public influence and if they felt like doing a Michael Nugent on FTB. Well then...

I've got a new game for us to play, called You've Been Avi'd!

The rules are pretty simple: you have to guess which of two quotes is the original, and which is the plagiarized version by Avicenna.

Links are given at the end to the original texts -- but no peeking until you've made your picks!

So:
The Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Exam board (OCR) launched an investigation into exam malpractice at the Yesodey Hatorah Jewish Voluntary Aided girls' secondary school after the National Secular Society formally asked it to follow up unconfirmed reports that teachers had redacted questions in this year's GSCE science exam.

The precise questions that were blacked out has not been revealed by OCR, but earlier this year a Jewish education consultant warned that evolution in the new GCSE science curriculum could pose problems for strictly Orthodox schools.

The investigation confirmed pupils were left disadvantaged by being unable to access 3 marks out of 75 for a unit in a higher GCSE science exam, and 1 mark out of 75 for a unit on a lower paper.

This is very cool and kudos to all the drivers.

FtB will never kick a supported poc from the network because of a slymepit case - regardless of evidence.

We don't exist to them.

This needs to be pushed by mainstream IP owners - or get picked up by other online publishers. Unfortunately Avi is a big fat nobody, so there is a return to effort conundrum at play.

Where's Damion when you need him - and skepticink? Also it would help if the evidence was collated in visually consistent "low reading effort required" info graphics - so the plagiarism was really in your face.

And a Mykeru video would help. Oh, that's right. I forgot.

Honestly, I wouldn't be that surprised if you were right. I just think at the end of the day Peezis will want to save face as much as possible for the sake of his ego. Its harder to think of yourself as an intellectual if you condone blatant instances of plagiarism. If Peez was following the policy most universities hold and one of his students turned in an essay like the ones Avi has been writing, he'd have to fail that student. I can't believe that connection is lost on him.

In any case, it should be interesting to see what the response is or isn't. If you are right I''ll definitely interpret it as conformation that he has completely thrown his academic standards to the wind.

And now a special You've Been Avi'd episode, featuring that great British organ of truth The Daily Mail. Have at it, my slymies!
Conservatives had harshly criticized the draft and proposed extensive revisions to restate church doctrine, which holds that gay sex is "intrinsically disordered," but that gays themselves are to be respected, and that marriage is only between a man and a woman.

Yes. Hello to our eight to ten guests. Some of whom, I must assume, are from FTB and are trying to figure out how they tolerated a dirty, filthy, plagiarist for so long.

Back to our regular You've Been Avi'd programming, with plagiarism from a more pedestrian source (Reuters):
Despite announcing the freeing of the 200 hostages, there have still been no signs of progress from Boko Haram. Currently? Talks are ongoing in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena but they aren’t being reported on.

In a separate attack, a bomb exploded late on Wednesday at a bus station in the town of Azare in northern Nigeria’s Bauchi state, killing at least five people and wounding 12, police said. They did not comment on who was behind the attack, although Boko Haram is likely to be the prime suspect. These public bombings have killed hundreds this year alone.
Talks to release the schoolgirls are taking place this week between the government and a Boko Haram representative in the Chadian capital N'Djamena, but they are shrouded in secrecy.

(Yes, this one's a give-away!)

And now a special You've Been Avi'd for geography wonks:
Dr Dhanoun Dharmasena, 31, of Ilford, Essex, will be prosecuted for an alleged offence while working at the Whittington Hospital in London.

Hasan Mohamed, 40, of Holloway, north London, faces a charge of intentionally encouraging female genital mutilation.
Dr Dhanuson Dharmasena, 31, of Ilford, east London, will be prosecuted for an alleged offence while working at the Whittington Hospital in London.

Hasan Mohamed, 40, of Holloway, north London, faces a charge of intentionally encouraging female genital mutilation.
Is Ilford in east London or Essex? Avi thinks he knows!

As you are reading PeeZus, just copy and paste your condemnations of plagiarism that you have published in the past and change the name where appropriate to 'Avicenna'. Won't take more than a minute.

If you don't know how to copy and paste , ask your fellow bloggers.

And then donate all the money Avicenna has got from FTB to all these charities he is supporting.

By the way, did I miss the news that Kaley Cuoco doesn't really consider herself a feminist?

That Kaley Cuoco? The same Kaley Cuoco that Rebecca Watson tried to use as a tool to discourage drunken sex, and not so subtly imply that she was the one being taken advantaged of and not the man?

Oh my. This year is off to a great start! (Well, for some. My condelences to Sara Mayhew. Hopes she cheers up soon.)

I guessed these right simply by figuring out which was the more poorly written. That was easy.

For the one that was identical apart from the smart quotes, I guessed the original had normal quotes, and Avicenna's "in built writer" converted them to smart quotes. Not sure why he also decided to remove a random 'a'. Maybe his clipboard software really is broken.

The east London/Essex one was just luck.

And now for the I Can Haz MD edition of the ever-popular You've Been Avi'd, wherein our good Doctor plagiarizes his medical facts from.... Wikipedia.

:bjarte:
As of April 2014, more than 170 million doses of Gardasil had been distributed worldwide. The vaccine was tested in thousands of females (ages 9 to 26). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) consider the vaccine to be safe. It does not contain mercury, thiomersal, live viruses or dead viruses, but virus-like particles, which cannot reproduce in the human body.

[...]

A Kaiser Permanente study tracking 190,000 girls and women post-vaccination for two years found that rates of the autoimmune disorders lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), hemolytic anemia, multiple sclerosis, thyroiditis and type 1 diabetes mellitus in vaccinated populations were the same as in unvaccinated populations.

(the [...] is mine, indicating cut text. Also, I cut out the footnotes from the Wikipedia version -- that would have made it too easy. No need to do that with Avi's version, of course; but I did need to remove numerous 'Â' characters from his fucked-up copypasting.)

Not at all surprised by the inevitable exposure of Avi's "activities." I've been saying for about a year that things just don't add up for him. Given this confirmation, I'm pretty sure many of the things he's claimed to have done, which also stretch credulity, are actually at very least embellishments on reality. Can't figure out why an evidently smart guy didn't know that shit would hit the fan sooner or later.

Avi is considering naming this himself, since it's all about him...and will call it "WATERGATE".

Because it sounded good the first time and why put something in your own words when using someone else's is easier?

Lying in bed, I came up with a great You've Been Avi'd spin-off show: Avi's Got Your Mail. It takes the same general two-quote format, but the quotes are from Avi's I Get Mail posts, in which he pretends something he found using Google was sent to him personally as an email.

So, let's kick off with a soccer-themed one (geddit?):
Soccer is running America into the ground, and there is very little anyone can do about it. Social critics have long observed that we live in a therapeutic society that treats young people as if they can do no wrong. Every kid is a winner, and nobody is ever left behind, no matter how many times they watch the ball going the other way. Whether the dumbing down of America or soccer came first is hard to say, but soccer is clearly an important means by which American energy, drive, and competitiveness is being undermined to the point of no return.

(Note that one of the comments, Z @ 22, calls out the suspicious origins of Avi's 'email'. The rest of the commentariat politely refuses to acknowlege this embarrassing fact).
