Sorry to go on about Essay Fraud, but someone called Nancy posted some interesting links in a comment to my previous post, which I wanted to follow-up.
Cheating 2, I asserted the converse - that it is precisely when students are trying to cheat that they may be most vulnerable to being ripped off.
2. [correction] I find it amusing that EssayFraud (self-appointed champion of "professional, native English-speaking writers") once described itself as a profitless organization. In Much Ado About Nothing, Leonato says
"I pray thee cease thy counsel,3. Someone on the FreelanceWriting discussion makes the following point: "If you are an American company based in the US how come you speak Russian?" There are plenty of people in Russia and Ukraine who speak reasonable (if occasionally unidiomatic) English. But this person doesn't expect native-born Americans to speak any Russian. Doesn't this just tell us volumes about the American education system? In which case, would you really want an American to do your Latin translation or write your geography essay for you?
Which falls into mine ears as profitless
As water in a sieve."
