What's "different" about this post? There is nothing original in this post - but the way in which it was put together. This post was compiled by combining quotes from many other posts*, with very slight editing in spots. Please let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks.
* Each period and some other punctuation marks are the links. Perhaps later I will list all the sources.
Now, this doesn't really seem like such a big deal - after all, it was definitely hard to tell that the post wasn't original material if you didn't read the fine print. What was funny was... well, I'll just let him say it himself:
SerandEz sums up the problem nicelyHeh. I'm sorry - this was too much to resist. ;)The problem isn't Fatah or Hamas, the problem is the people who elected them.UPDATE: Whoops. This is very embarrassing. An unnamed person didn't realize that SerandEz had skillfully blended together sentences from several different sources and linke them in the punctuation. He also didn't read the fine print on SerandEz's post saying that this was the case. Finally, said, unnamed person, didn't realize why he liked the quote so much: It was his own! Unnamed person is very embarrassed.
