I'm new to editing, but this is insane! They are everywhere! I think we need to be extra diligent in catching these, and NOT publishing them. I even saw one that another editor had noted in the title that it was plagiarized, and then someone came in, edited it, and published it anyways. ???
I'm seriously concerned about what kind of impact this is going to have on the new points program. I mean, there are people coming in and submitting fake reviews over and over again, and getting 1000 points for each one. That has got to be bad for business, right? I was wondering if maybe it would be better if the points were posted to our accounts after our reviews are published, that ways those who plagiarize would not get any points for the fake reviews.
