Professional cheaters: custom essay writing companies do a booming business. I was once offered $300 in grad school to write a paper for a fellow student in our critical theory seminar. I turned it down. Even Marxist-feminists can have a conscience!
Using the internet to plagiarize is all too common. One problem for professors is the huge amount of relevant material available to students on the internet. There's simply no way for profs to keep up with everything available in their respective fields. One solution is to assign highly specific topics on a limited range of material.

Mark Shea on being an orthodox Catholic opponent of torture. I join The Church's Yeti of the Northwest in his crusade against torture; or rather, he and I join the Church's crusade against torture. Say it with me now: "Utilitarianism is NOT and will NEVER be part of Catholic orthodoxy."
Take the Zombie Survival Quiz. I got an "A." Was there any doubt?
