it hurts, painfully, when people you thought were your friends take your principles for granted.
they thought they were writers. they were just a bunch of, well, people.
writers don't plagiarize.
WRITERS DO NOT PLAGIARIZE.
and i, for being a writer, hate plagiarists.
Many seem to take for granted the most important things in life. It hurts, really... really, really hurts.
I feel betrayed.
