Background: Why not think for yourself
The person in question sent me an email on Tuesday asking that I remove her name from the post. Basically saying she lost her job almost immediately (a year ago) at the college newspaper over her “mistake” and has now paid a sufficient price. She is about to graduate, is looking for a job, and when Googling for her name my blog shows up. She doesn’t want her mistake to haunt her for the rest of her life.
Question: Should I remove her name from my posting? Elaborate on your answer.
I have my own inclinations but want the thoughts of others.
Update: FirstName responds.
Update2: September 18, 2006. I removed the actual name of the plagiarist and substituted FirstName LastName after she asked me to remove her name, wrote an apology, and I waited what I considered was a reasonable period of time.
