First of all, I'd like to commend d2xp's mod and admin staff for putting together an active and innovative LLDing forum. You guys seem to be doing a great job.

Second of all, just like with out-lawz, there has been a major issue with plagiarism of guides. A certain member of lld101 and d2xp (Spuds) has been caught stealing, plagiarizing, and posting AT LEAST 7 guides without crediting the original creator and poster of the guides, and passing them off as his own, when in fact he was stealing the hard work of others for his own gain - which was namely xp and praise.

Evidence:

Frankly, I am appaled by all of this, and Spuds is now banned from LLD101 because of this despicable act, and I would be very disappointed with d2xp if they allowed him to remain on their site, as seven counts of plagiarism is a serious offense.

Furthermore, if anyone is caught plagiarizing ANYTHING from LLD101.com without giving sufficient credit to the original poster of the information, they will be banned on the spot from LLD101. I can only hope d2xp will take the necessary action against plagiarizers in the future, with the banning of Spuds as a message to all others thinking of stealing other people's work for themselves.

Actually, in talking with other ppl from d2xp they were looking to ban this guy as well as others for things ranging from this offense to just general bm attitudes.

As with any "start-up" site there are problems and idiots trying to exploit the "newness" of the site. I'm sure the mods have a long term vision of what they want the site to be and will come down hard on anyone trying to screw it up.

I also hope the mods give credit where credit is due OR delete the guides.

Way to go mods for flushing this idiot for being the turd he is! Very Happy

Confused I dont even see any of thoose topics posted in the LLD section. Weird. I can tell you why he did it though, any good guide posted gets you a minimum of 25 xp. And he does make posts that consist of one smiley, always had a problem with that.

If I see any guides from LLD101, I will inform the other mods to delete them. If they're in the MLD section, they'll be deleted immediatly if I find out they're stolen.

Believe it or not d2xp did not ban spuds, I am actually very disappointed. Anywhere else that someone pulled that type of crap it invokes immediate ban. I guess it doesn't work that way at d2xp :/

Especially with his blatant disregard. He doesn't care at all, and he's practically gloating he got away with it...

I know I saw the post he made, and I pm'd dat about my concerns on him not being banned. If he isn't banned shortly I will no longer go to that sit, because its gonna be full of scammers and other liars soon enough when people start to realize that they wont be held accountable for their actions.

I think the reason he didn't get banned, is because he donated to the site...
