Let's hope this post will also play as a warning for people doing plagiarism 😉

A good free tool I always use to detect plagiarism is ... Google! yes google. If you have any doubt about any content, take 3 or 4 sentences for the post (always from the middle, not from the beginning) and put them on the search result. If it's a plagiarism you will get the original post.

Another advice is to consider formatting. Bad formatted posts are generally plagiarism due to the simple copy/past (yes, some users are lazy to format what they pick elsewhere)
