Plagiarism

Go figure! I can't post anything on my own blog anymore... :-)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Leander,
When I started reading your essay, I noted some peculiarities, and a quick search on the internet revealed that you copy-pasted the entire essay from the blog 'Il principe'. Obviously, we do not tolerate plagiarism, especially not on this scale. I will hand over the evidence to the exam board, and advice them to exclude you from this course for at least a year. As far as I am concerned, you have also forfeited any rights on an 'easy pass' for English proficiency II.
Best, "

I cant help but find this post hilarious, just completing my degree a few months ago...it took me back to all those lectures you get about the serious nature of plagerism and the consequences but honestly... LOL!!! It would only have taken a few clicks for them to see who was the publisher of the blog...

Well, I guess he wasn't that smart and didn't even try to look further. He was right about some half-referring, but not like this. They think they are all that...
