As many of you may have noticed, October's Pasta of the Month was taken down. The reason behind this is that it was found to be a plagiarized story. Namely off of The Disappearance of Ashley, Kansas. The plagiarized story is unable to be viewed and compared, as I have deleted it from the site. I can't stress it enough that we won't tolerate the blatant ripping off of other people's ideas around here. We apologize for not catching this sooner and appreciate the users who brought this to our attention. Continue to be watchful for plagiarized work. Copied stories make our site look infantile and shallow. As a community, we all need to be on the alert for things like this going forward.
I am immediately closing this thread after submission, as it is informational only.
