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.

Best wishes with the resolution of this! I hope it doesn't get too messy.

We're all rooting for you, and would like to know how things turn out.
