My question is- leave the text for someone to eventually edit or delete it entirely?

I think I can safely say that I didn't accept that one. It was done back in January. I don't even recognize the culprit. So points gone, text deleted. Someone can re-do it if they want.

Funny thing is I have seen that more recently (thankfully not too often). They even had the foot notes included even though they didn't "go" anywhere.

So nice to see that people are becoming aware how hard it's been maintaining my sanity with some of the subs that come through. Don't get me wrong, obviously we have a lot of great ones that can be found all over. There are just some really scary ones at times.

It's always funny when they copy paste the footnotes, at least it makes it easier to spot the plagiarism.
