This one’s making the rounds of the internet this week.
Comedy writer gets IMed by college student asking him to write a paper for him. He does. Badly. Then he blows the whistle and posts his evidence.
The writer is being badmouthed by those who think he did a bad thing in “taking advantage” of the student. I think he’s in the clear, and that it’s her fault for cheating.
Others think the whole thing is an elaborate hoax.

I reached one more branch out to her, in the form of misspelling the name of the god of destruction as a liquor brand. ["Shiva"/"Chivas"] But it wasn’t enough to get her to tell me to [expletive deleted] myself, so I started making up my plan. Which was real simple: Take her money and cut and paste a paper together from the internet that was so obviously plagiarised that she’d be guaranteed to get caught. And then, if I was able to get the information out of her, I’d report her to whatever her school was, and who knows, maybe even pump her for double money in exchange for not turning her in. Either way, I’d eventually be writing the story up in this blog, and sending her the link to it.
