THE POISON SPREADS ...

THERE IS A NOTICEABLE INCREASE IN ESSAY CHEAT OFFERS
It must be that time of the academic year when first year students are required to write essays on their economic class subjects.
On the Web a couple of clicks and the lazy student (or the busy ones who are too busy in other campus activities) face deadlines for submitting their term essays and instead of writing their own, they can pay a few dollars or pounds for a pre-written essay sold by enterprising others, tailor-made to fool the lecturer of the student's academic progress.
In the past month I have noticed dozens of the essay writing sites offering their wares. 
Where there is a demand there often is a supply, unfortunately of varying quality, or what is as bad, essays of excellent quality but of the wrong standard (too good for a first year student say) or too poor of off-message, or absolute worse still, an essay identical to the others received by the lecturer from other students!
Am I being too moralistic? Not at all. 
I am just appalled at the standards likely to emerge, especially when I see such offers that include titles like 'Adam Smith's Invisible Hand Theory'.
And so the poison spreads...
