I agree on that from all of my Heart.
And I think one can add the Old Lady - H. P. Blavatsky and her writings - when one read remarks about her (also on various forums) from various persons calling themselves theosophists - (Persons attacking her good name claiming that there are many errors in the Secret Doctrine clearly without explaining why. - And not understanding, that Dead-Letter reading was never a part of that book, and persons not understanding the huge limitations of scholary evaluations, --- or attacking her level of honesty without any valid documentation at all).

  mkr -
  very well said.
  To falsely portray anyone's hard work and research as somehow your own, 
  or not even at least referring to the source itself, is a moral issue.
  I, also, have seen too much of this.... We (all) must try hard to keep 
  this in mind.
