I suppose you think you are somehow more clever than all the other buffoons who constantly try to cheat their way through my classes? Don’t you realize that you and your ilk are one of the primary reasons that I set my grading policy the way I do? Since I can really only trust the in-class work to be truly your own, your tests will continue to account for the majority of your grade, and there is still a minimum test average requirement for you to pass the class.
And yet you still somehow think that plagiarizing code for your programming assignments, rather than writing it yourself and learning from it, will somehow help your outcome in the course. One would think that the F’s you earned on your tests last semester, attempting this course, would have clued you in.
And now this.
You aren’t exactly the first of my students to try soliticing on rentacoder.com, hoping to buy solutions to your assignments from low-priced third-world coders. But you are probably the least intelligent of them. And never mind that this was only the second assignment in the course, a very easy one – just a few exercises intended as practice mostly with review concepts that came from the pre-requisite course, which you’ve already had.
But that’s not the defining aspect of your idiocy.
Imagine my irritation at seeing yet another attempt to cheat on assignments.
Imagine my interest at finding your listings on this site.
Better yet, imagine how, when I saw your rentacoder login name and noticed its familiar pattern – imagine how I must have exclaimed, "Surely he would not be stupid enough to use his university e-mail account username (which can be looked up with “finger” on that system) as his logon name for this site??!"
Imagine the way I must have answered my own rhetorical question, when I identified who you are not 20 seconds after seeing your listing.
Speaking of imaginations, I suppose you think you covered your tracks nicely after you received that stern e-mail from the Comp Sci Department Associate Chair, asking you to come in for a talk. I’m referring, of course, to the way that those rentacoder links now show up as “private auction only” and I can no longer see the listings. Ha ha, very clever. Or maybe it would be if I didn’t have access to printers.
Four weeks in tothe spring term, and I see that you are already trying very hard to fail this class again.
See you in lecture tomorrow, dumbass.
