Just to clear up some confusion:

My last post consisted of an example of wish-writing.  I did not actually use anything like that tone of voice with my colleague. 

With one colleague, I pointed out that any quotation of text should be accompanied with appropriate citations, and use quotation marks.  In an email to another colleague, I did point out to them that there was an uncanny similarity between their work and the Wikipedia entry.  That was enough (without the abusive language) for him to get defensive and hostile.

I would have dearly loved to vent well-deserved vitriol at him, but refrained, because I'm not quite that bellicose.
