Check your sources C.m.pyrrhus as you do not have a clear idea of what constitutes plagiarism. Although 100% word-for-word is plagiarism in its extreme (which, incidentally, is the case here - Xain copied word for word) the academic regulation of plagiarism is to put forth as original to oneself the ideas or words of another. Under a strict interpretation of these regulations, the very act of passing off an idea (regardless of word-for-word copying) as one's own without acrediting the original source is plagiarism.
