Plagiarism or not plagiarism.
Last Update: Mar 21, 2023
This is just a short blog about writing and checking for errors and plagiarism in our content;
Last week I published a short blog on my website introducing the use of tags and categories on your Wordpress website.
In my framework I use Grammar as my go to tool for spelling, grammar and plagiarism checks.
This evening I decided to check the article with OriginalityAI, just for pure interest of how it reports plagiarism compared to Grammarly.
To my big surprise, while Grammarly reports just 1% plagiarism due to the odd sentence similar to content elsewhere, OriginalityAI reported 100% plagiarism......
I expect that with a topic like WordPress it is unavoidable not to write the same thing and wording, but the difference in the score between the two tools where surprising.
Anybody else that has experienced the same thing?
BTW! I If that is not enough, my website decided to go nuts on me this evening without me doing much. I adjsuted some settings on my website last week, I checked the appearence of my site, checked it again during the weekend, But when I took a look at it earlier today, it had added a double set of menu´s as well as messed up the layout settings of both pages, posts and globally on the site.
I think I have a bit of work in fornt of me... :-D Never a dull moment having a blog or two!

I was telling someone a short few days ago that there is a need to expedite efforts on improving AI detection tools- and here is more proof of that. You write something yourself and it tells you you are not just off but almost 100% off - the AI is telling you the human you are the AI and it is human - Hahaha
Anyways, we do use a plagiarsim checker but it is only for institutions- not sold individually. Noneteless I still use grammarly Pro and a few others occasionally
It seems there's a mistake somewhere.
I'm not convinced it works from what I have seen about Originality Ai.
A guy used Copy.ai to write an entire blog post, and Originality AI shows 100% human, while Crossplag shows it's 100% AI.
I will instead use Crossplag, plus it's a free tool.
Thank you for the tip, Muslimah. Crossplag would be worth checking out for review purposes.
I trust Grammarly. It has worked well since I started using it.
In my humble opinion (and experience) Grammarly is right and Originality.AI is reporting false positive B.S. more and more.
The reason I say this is I did some tests last week with an articles I wrote myself. Originality.AI reported my article 95% AI, while a text generated by Chat GPT reported 30% AI.
So in conclusion, all of these tools will need to be "updated" quite a bit before I turn to them for advice again.
Oh and Originality.AI got my first and last $20 .🤣
Hahaha, Denis. That's so funny! I don't think there's a reliable AI detection method publically available. 😎
Rock On! 🤘
I kinda realized that after spending $20 on BS 🤣I still have credits left so I might scan these replies and see what it says😉🤪
I am not a fan of Grammarly. I think it allows too many grammatical slips. It only notices the basic ones.
The difference between the scores is too glaring and raises the question of reliability. I am sorry about the bugs on your website. If it proves challenging to tweak, just invite WA Technical to help out.

I agree that it is tough sometimes not to write on a subject in a way very similar to what someone else has used. I have rewritten articles when I was surprised to find that some things were consider plagiarized. When I comment on articles here at WA, from time to time, what I think to be unique imaginative comments are reject for being to similar to others until they are revised. I guess there are only so many word combinations availabel.
