“Pls Can You Will Write Me Paper?” 

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Pseudonymous writer “Ed Dante” has a fascinating piece in The Chronicle of Higher Education, one which is likely to be intriguing to folks in all fields. In it, he describes how he makes his living custom-writing papers for students to pass off as their own.

I have seen the word “desperate” misspelled every way you can imagine. And these students truly are desperate. They couldn’t write a convincing grocery list, yet they are in graduate school.

Requests like the one seen in this post’s title come in from students and Dante helps them cheat their way through school. It’s quite disturbing.
