We have seen the definition of plagiarism numerous times on this site, more or less elaborated, but always in its core:
Plagiarism is passing someone else's work as your own
I am all for questions which ask to understand the concept better, or understand the importance of it better, or are encountering the concept of self-plagiarism for the first time as a young researcher and trying to understand that, or peculiar and particular situations involving plagiarism.
But, this recent question (and I believe I have seen more similar ones before it, which is why I am posting to the meta, but can't dig them out right now) basically asks:
I want to pass my friends work as my own, but additionally he owns a pink elephant. Is this still plagiarism?
(where owning a pink elephant could be any other completely irrelevant reasoning). It seems to me that this question (and many other alike) are basically asking:
Is plagiarism plagiarism?
The answer to this question does not really contribute anything new to the site, the OP could have found this information out by glancing on most of our
plagiarism tagged questions, and all the answers just elaborate on "Plagiarism is passing someone else's work as your own.", which can be seen in many, many other questions.
I downvoted the question in question, as I think it is a bad question. I was also thinking of casting a close vote, but none of the reasons seemed to be quite on the spot. Ultimately, I don't think it's a good question, good fit, or worth keeping, but since I can see four up-votes on it, I was just wondering whether this is really the community opinion.
