I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

On the dangers of plagiarism

[ #14416 ]
I'm writing an article on plagiarized term papers, so I've been poking around at some of of the sites. Besides the obligatory, dishonest claims of "We expect that you will not turn this in as your own," I ran across this gem from the introduction to a paper called An Experience With NOFX.

NOFX is a punk-ska band. Punk meaning fast paced drumbeats and quick singing and ska meaning a song played with trumpets.

I wish that the people who would buy a paper or essay realized just how awful the material probably is.
