What do you do if not only had one of your articles has been unlawfully redistributed, but that its been altered with a paragraph you never wrote?
And what would you do if this ghost-written paragraph made you seem like a pseudo-scientific nut?
Well, if you have answers, please let me know - I need them.
In the past 3 weeks, over 1000 web hits have attributed the following paragraph to me:
“Plants have scientifically been show[n] to draw alternative sources of energy from other plants. Plants influence each other in many ways and they communicate through "nanomechanical oscillations" vibrations on the tiniest atomic or molecular scale or as close as you can get to telepathic communication. However, their sense and communication are measureable in very much the ways as are humans.”In case its not clear, I DID NOT WRITE THIS!!
There is NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF for any of this.There is no such thing as alternative sources of energy from plants (unless you are talking about biofuels, which I doubt was the intent here); there is no such thing as plant communication through nanomechanical oscilations or telepathic communication. This is pseudoscience new-age mumbo-jumbo at its worse. And I am mortified that it was attributed to me.
