She has used Essaywriting company.com and other such companies because, she said, "I work full time and I go to school full time and I'm a single parent. Lack of time, basically."

So not being able to devote the time needed to studying makes cheating OK? This person should be flunked out of school.

Well boo-frickin-hoo. The world is supposed to bow and bend to you because life is tough? If you're not prepared to do the work necessary in order to get a degree, then stay home until you can. Degrees are supposed to reward hard work, not desire.

Jeez, grow the frick up, America!

Its laziness. Graduate school is hard work. If you can’t discipline yourself to do original research and writing, you don’t belong there. Using a form paper deprives you of critical thinking skills. The student who does a term paper, shows that something new has been learned.

Professors know when you take someone else’s arguments and pass them off as your own, you aren’t learning. And its also shows that you have deficient ethics. Its not acceptable to crib, period.

I bet she's also going to school free on some welfare single mom give away.

Every class syllabus at the U is required to have a section on academic misconduct, including plagiarism and cheating, Wackman said.

Does this part of the curriculum require any essays or term papers?

I don’t see the problem here. After all, any plagiarist can grow up and be Vice President of the United States. Just ask Joe Biden!

The college senior in Colorado felt cheated when for $23 per page she ordered a custom-written term paper from a Twin Cities company and it wasn't delivered on time. Never mind that she was cheating by passing off a paper written by a stranger as her own. She complained to the Better Business Bureau about Essaywritingcompany.com, owned by Jordan Kavoosi of Farmington.

This is roughly akin to a bank robber suing a car manufacturer because his getaway car failed to start.

I like the woman who says because she works and has a family, she doesn’t have time to do a paper. I thought I’d heard it all. Using the same logic, why doesn’t she have someone substitute for her to take her tests. She’s too busy to study for tests and show up for the examinations. It’s only fair. (smirk)

If a person is having problems producing quality written work, the answer is not plagiarism. The answer is to write your own work, and have somebody edit/proofread it for you.

You know, if this company had been around 25 years ago and selling political speeches, Dopey Joe Biden might have been able to plagiarize his political speeches without being so blatant about it. He might have even been able to get the democrat nomination for POTUS or VP without having to be Zero’s little lapdog.

I have no sympathy for that lazy, cheating student.

As a teacher, I’m not too wound up about cheating.

In my programming classes, cheating is almost as hard as the work itself. Sneak one by me, and it’s just that much longer and that much more money before you slam into the brick wall of ignorance. The piece of paper at the end (if you get that far) won’t help you do the actual work in the real world. If you’re doing so badly you need to cheat, the difference between what I know you know vs what you hand in will be obvious. If you hand in another student’s work, I’ll notice that it’s the same, right down to the misspellings, erratic punctuation, and unique mistakes - even if you replace names and rearrange the content. Cheat, you get a zero; learn your lesson and do your work and I’ll overlook it; lie to me again and you’re out (which in irony won’t be my call because you’ve already failed yourself).

If you cheat in school, just leave already. It’s way too expensive to come out having not learned.

Have I passed known cheaters? Yes. Sometimes it’s not worth my effort to flunk them. I’m not worried, because they will suffer the consequences: you cannot survive the next course if you do not grasp the prerequisite material; there comes a point where you won’t even know enough about this complex subject matter to cheat effectively (and if you were smart enough to, you didn’t need to). By the time you get mired in your own deception-fueled ignorance, you’ll have committed to spending tens of thousands of dollars with nothing to show for it. You reap what you sow. Karma (as a natural phenomenon, not obtuse mysticism) happens.

Oh, BTW: on the final exam, don’t buy the answers on-line. I know. Save your money, you’ll need it.

All of these comments were plagiarized from me.

Wackman knew that it was purchased from a company, but that didn't affect his grading, he said. He had concrete reasons to mark it down...

As the phrase goes, "I was born at night but not last night."

There's a reason double-blind testing is a pillar of scientific rigor. He knew it was purchased making him tainted. His grading is rendered meaningless by the foreknowledge. His "concrete reasons" are irrelevant.
