Observations on Samoa Observer

samoa-observer-stolenIn previous posts I have pinged the Samoa Observer for ‘lacking a little’ in the ethics department, though they’re certainly not short of bleating about others’ misconduct!

In a recent post I exposed him as an unrepentant and devious thief. In this post I continue sharing more examples of his blatant plagiarism within Facebook and his personal website. It’s a sad never-ending story. [Read more…]
