How long is freeper U-238 going to be allowed to keep stealing quotes from other websites, not giving attribution and pretending they are his "deep thoughts"? Is he just some teenage "expert wanna-be" or is he trolling for replies by other Freepers with military expertise?

He has been caught doing this here, here, and yet again here, and yet he continues to pose as some "wise freeper" who in reality only steals others' words and copies and pastes them in as his own.

He are embarrassing FR with his constant plagiarism.

The fact that he does this so often on military threads makes one wonder if his real aim is to elicit comments based on likely real, often personal, expert military background and info from other Freepers; info that can then be used for "social engineering" or worse.

Here's his latest masterpiece on this very thread on "US sale of combat planes to Iraq concerns IDF"":

"Posted" as an "original" comment by u-238, 04/08/2012:
"Israel also has an edge in equipment. Even though Turkey and Israel both have “F-16s”, all of the Israeli F-16s have special upgraded made-in-Israel electronics that no other country has. Israel orders all of its fighter planes with a lot of the electronics missing, and then Israel installs its own.

Israel has the world’s most advanced F-16s, because there was a special order of 100 F-16Is delivered during the last decade, a recent model designed especially for the IAF with longer range, a second seat for a weapons specialist, and of course Israel’s own special electronics.

Furthermore, Israel manufactures its own missiles. The Derby medium range air-to-air missile, and the Python short range air-to-air missile.

It’s rather interesting that the Israelis manufacture their own missiles and their own aircraft electronics. It seems that Israel doesn’t entirely trust the United States. Perhaps they think that U.S. electronics and missiles might somehow stop working if the U.S. ever decided they didn’t want them to work? Also, it would seem that the Israelis are aware that a lot of “friendly” Islamic countries have F-16s and AIM-120 AMRAAM and Sidewinder missiles, and they have been preparing to fight against this U.S.-built equipment for a long time."

Anyone else had enough of this dishonest troll whose main effort here seems to be posing as an expert while glad-handing and quietly pumping our brave vets for their comments and their knowledge?

PING. You really need to see this. It appears that U-238 was not just being ‘strange and weird’ and re-posting your threads, but that he was doing some rather interesting stuff. He got nabbed flat-footed by a FReeper, and rather than learn from his mistakes (if they were in fact mistakes) he decided to engage, going all the way to JR. Obvious result was a zot-bolt. Anyways, thought you might find this interesting.
