Is there a need for more than one article on the subject from the same paper?  Beyond the original reporting, any journalist worth their salt, especially those who could be involved or who know Harman, will be waiting for the findings of the Times' investigation before commenting publicly.  I presume The Times will want to be sure if there has been any plagiarism in articles submitted to them, and if so, that's where the real story will be.   

I've got to say, it's some of the 'dancing on the grave', that is making me feel defensive towards Harman, despite knowing what he did was wrong.  So much of what I've read about him in the last few days has nothing to do with the actual plagiarism, and more to do with people thinking him 'smug', or not liking that he has such a close relationship with many of the top players, or because of some assumed slight of their favourite player once, or that he's too much of a fan of someone who isn't their favourite player.  I've even seen people complaining about how it was wrong for him to mention going to church, or some of the other more personal stuff on his personal twitter account.

Essentially, it seems that a lot of people are using this revelation as an excuse to air their own intolerances, and exercise their nasty side.  It's not attractive.

Nigel.....even though my opinion is what it is, I still wish you'd put yourself forward for that job!

Has anyone seen any reference to Neil Harman's resignation in the Guardian apart from the Roy Greenslade's blog? The paper seems to be silent about it. Perhaps they are trying to persuade Kevin Mitchell not to accept a tempting offer from the Times  Think

Aileen - plagiarism is much easier these days with the internet.  But also it's easier to find.  I would sometimes find an unusually well written paragraph in a student's work - put it into google and hey ho would find the original source! 
I think one reason people are 'dancing on Harman's grave' is that he gives the impression of thinking himself as tennis journalist numero uno.
Well I suppose as he's been exposed as a pseud it would be appropriate if he were PF but does he have the sense of humour?  confused
Well they do say that pride comes before a fall Ruthie, but if anyone thinks that's a good enough reason to 'dance on someone's grave', then they must be living in a much nicer world than I am!

 Just a little after-thought ... does anyone still think that Harman is PseudoFed? Whistle
 Well that could explain why he didn't have time to write his own book.......too busy being immensely caring towards others and making them laugh!  Whistle

Finally a reasonable and measured comment in amongst all the superior ranting.
Thank you Tessie...... Neil Harman did a 'bad' thing and I won't argue with that, but I don't think he is a 'bad' man! Stupid yes....but the world is full of evil men, who are destroying innocent lives on a daily basis and for the most part, getting away with it. As far as I can see, the only life Neil Harman has destroyed is his own and I refuse to dance on his grave!
