Plagiarism - A Very Thorough Rebuttal
I`ve received a bucket load of emails from various escorts and (former) clients, telling me that there`s been a fairly recent thread on this board accusing me of plagiarism.
I would have responded sooner, but I`m actually in a state of semi retirement, and check email infrequently (and boards not at all at the moment).
At any rate, in the interests of accuracy, I thought I`d come on and post the same response I just sent to one of the many ladies who`ve emailed to bring this to my attention (and thanks to them for their support):
Thanks for writing. I am actually retired, and had missed out on this drama.
For what it`s worth, there`s a VERY easy way to see who wrote the text first (and I`ve had pretty much the same text for almost five years now). It`s called ``The Wayback Machine``, and it can`t be faked. It shows the historical versions of websites, including text.
For example, here`s my Wayback listings, for my current site:
Here`s the July 07 text of my site:
Allow me to introduce myself - I`m Morgan Ellis. I`m a variety of things - a voluptuary, a sybarite, a hedonist, a companion, a fetishist. I am, in short, an escort. More than that, I`m of the firm belief that sensuality can and should be more than just a commercial transaction - it can be transforming and empowering for us both.
Of course, if that doesn`t convince you, feel free to compare it with this even earlier version of my site, which has substantially unchanged text:
I have sparkling hazel green eyes, short auburn hair*, and kissably full lips. My skin is smooth, soft and fair, and sprinkled with a dusting of freckles - echoes of my Welsh heritage. My figure is lush and curvily proportionate, and best described as an over sized hour glass. I have ample, all natural E cup breasts with full, dark, extrordinarily sensitive nipples. My derriere is generously heart shaped, tapering into full thighs and strong, toned calves.
This version, by the way, is from 2005, and can be seen here:
Coincidentally, I`m a charter member of ``I Don`t Have a Brain``, the group that outed plagiarist escort web sites. The irony does not go un noticed...
I`ll accept Athana`s apology whenever she`s ready. I suppose she thought ``Hey, she`s not using it``...or something along those lines.
Still semi retired, but still also claiming her creative commons license
Consider a new career - writing copy for escort websites.
"I'm sorry, but not sorry"
Athana's response on the other board (essentially a continuation of the 'pointing the finger away from me' exercise, which would surely earn her a gold medal if it were a recognized discipline at the Olympics):

What you mentioned above is actually the only reason I even bothered to get involved in all of this.
I might be (semi) retired, but that doesn't mean that I still don't take my reputation seriously. In all of my years working, I never had a bad review, and I certainly never ripped off another woman's intellectual property.
To have someone accuse me of plagiarism (someone who is, no less, well aware of just who in fact is the thief) is a slap in the face that I didn't feel comfortable just ignoring.
Now that the matter is settled, I'll get back to my boring, civilian life
