I agree on that from all of my Heart.
And I think one can add the Old Lady - H. P. Blavatsky and her writings - when one read remarks about her (also on various forums) from various persons calling themselves theosophists - (Persons attacking her good name claiming that there are many errors in the Secret Doctrine clearly without explaining why. - And not understanding, that Dead-Letter reading was never a part of that book, and persons not understanding the huge limitations of scholary evaluations, --- or attacking her level of honesty without any valid documentation at all).

very well said.
To falsely portray anyone's hard work and research as somehow your own,
or not even at least referring to the source itself, is a moral issue.
I, also, have seen too much of this.... We (all) must try hard to keep
this in mind.
