Hi fellow Steemians,
As a process that newbies are supposed to go through on the steem block chain, and also having completed both Achievement 1 and Achievement 2 respectively, I am here to complete the next Achievement which is PLAGIARISM. It is one of the major illegalities the steem block chain frowns on.
What is Plagiarism then?
