Friday Fun: A Modest Proposal

What should happen to serial plagiarists?

Retraction of offending publications springs immediately to mind. Perhaps a ban on publishing in a certain journal for a period of time?

I have a different take on the matter: keep the paper, but stain it with a scarlet "P" that marks the work for posterity.

Hawthorne would be proud.

Happy Friday,
