Thank you, Carol. I've been a "substitute editor" for two pubs on Medium, and have caught plagiarism more than once. One of those "writers" has been suspended. To pass off someone else's work as one's own is the most heinous offense a writer can commit, and those folks should not be on this platform. Thank you for your vigilance! :D
