Plagiarism 101 Ridge Style

Ridge caught out again.....


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Plagiarism is the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work.

Within academia, plagiarism by students, professors, or researchers is considered academic dishonesty or academic fraud and offenders are subject to academic censure. In journalism, plagiarism is considered a breach of journalistic ethics, and reporters caught plagiarizing typically face disciplinary measures ranging from suspension to termination. Some individuals caught plagiarizing in academic or journalistic contexts claim that they plagiarized unintentionally, by failing to include quotations or give the appropriate citation. While plagiarism in scholarship and journalism has a centuries-old history, the development of the Internet, where articles appear as electronic text, has made the physical act of copying the work of others much easier, simply by copying and pasting text from one web page to another.

Plagiarism is not copyright infringement. While both terms may apply to a particular act, they are different transgressions. Copyright infringement is a violation of the rights of a copyright holder, when material protected by copyright is used without consent. On the other hand, plagiarism is concerned with the unearned increment to the plagiarizing author's reputation that is achieved through false claims of authorship.


Dear Brian,

Attached is a 'snapshot' of the Ridge's
friendster post sometime September 2007.

In this post, he claims to be developing a "
working theory for a masteral thesis."

He even thanks several people for the inspiration, including God for the "creative and analytical juices" in his brain.

Fine. So he's a
brainiac, right?

Nothing wrong with that.


You're claiming somebody else's work as your own.

This "working theory for a masteral thesis" is actually a published and copyrighted scientific article by the National Institutes of Health.

the link is below:

Original Manuscript

First draft of the original article was received 21 July 2006.

It was revised on 04 October 2006, and
accepted on 16 October 2006.

The final published version was made available online on 28 November 2006.

The link to the final version is below:

Final Version

As you can see Brian, this "theory" was already published way before Ridge's brain (or what's left of it) started churning out "creative and analytical juices" in 2007 :-)

Well, does he have a brain to begin with? :-)

He is creative, though. check out his "acknowledgements"

I copied Ridge's post in case he takes it down and feigns innocence :-)

In both links, I don't see his name of the list of authors, do you?

Ridge's Utter Disgrace

In case this whack job deletes his disgrace, I've made a screen shot of it.
The bullshit is so long you will have to zoom zoom to read all the plagiarism. Its truly amazing how this guy has fooled people into believeing he is responsible for this paper.
He is a fake and a fraud and this is only one example I have. I will be publishing more of Ridges plagiarism.

click and zoom
click for screen shot of his 'paper'.

total 100% plagiarism

Some people think they are so smart, but they are, in fact, just plain stupid.

The National Institutes Of Health and the authors of the article should be notified as well.
