Not only must it do the rewrite job for him, but it must do it for free. A three-toed sloth is Usain Bolt next to this clod.

    There are so many curse words I’d like to say over this attitude.

    It’s a regular evolutionary arms race for people who teach having to ferret out and try to defeat the new ways students find to try to cheat. I admit I have days when I just want to throw up my hands, go “It’s their souls and also THEIR jobs if they do it at work and get caught” and just go my merry way, but I can’t, quite.

    Downside: those who don’t get caught (and increasingly, many who do) get elected.

    It might at that. There’s a certain joy in watching someone’s skullduggery fail miserably.
