OK, so I decided to play hardball: first author, or take it down. Well, I didn't put it quite that way in the email to the editor, but I did say that nothing except first author would be acceptable at this point, considering that I was kind enough to wait for her (rude) response before dashing off the emails to everybody and their grandmother.

Secondly: the universsity has begun legal proceedings. I'm not sure what this means--I very much doubt that a court would be involved, though if it does and I end up testifying, it could get interesting. I wonder if she'll try to slander me in open court...

Anyway, the moral of the story is, if you're trying to get back at someone in the sciences, plagarism is a really shitty way to go about it, especially since they could always have a backup on gmail.

Yikes.

I'm glad to know, in a way, that these things do happen, because otherwise everything would just seem surreal.

The Netherlands is a small country--rumor mills fly fast and furious.

I've personally seen the Dutch rumor mill at work. So, yea, I wish you the best of luck.
