Oh wow what? That sucks - what a cr*p way to join here - I’m sorry that was your experience. Yep, that makes total sense now to publish with the spellos etc - I shall continue with my crazy all over the place tenses and not feel bad about it! And at least you know you have control back over your work too, right?
It frustrates me reading how much plagiarism goes on here, but I guess that’s the nature of people who have little imagination of their own! Imagine if they put the same amount of effort into writing their own stuff that they put into plagiarising, the world would be a much better place! Hey also, be flattered someone thought your idea was so great they had to rip if off!
