Someone plagiarized my answers.

I was just looking thru answers and found a person who wrote an answe just like mine. So I looked up the text for the answer and sure enough Ron Schuts copied my answer. He changed the beginning a tiny bit then it is word for word.

Rons answer:

The red screen of death. Classic. Try disconnecting the front camera/proximity sensor cable and see if it works after doing a hard reset also.

My answer on a different thread:

Ahhh yes, the red screen of death. Classic. Try disconnecting the front camera/proximity sensor cable and see if it works after doing a hard reset also.

All he did was remove ahh yes at the beginning. Doesn't really bother me that he copied, just to tell you that he did.

We've had a lot of these type of guys in the past. Some have been very difficult to get rid of. Some have ended up with high rating. This guy was the worst of them: https://www.ifixit.com/User/102027/rab77...

Humiliation seems to work best.
