The plagiarists at "Database of essays on W.Shakespeare" have been
sending me demands for payment for the essay I ordered on "Racism in
Shakespeare's Othello". I tried to avoid payment by impugning the
quality of the work:

> I was not satisfied with my essay on Racism in Shakespeare's Othello.
> Here's a sentence from the opening paragraph:
>
> "At the time the play was written, 1604, even the Queen of England
> was racist so there must have been a strong hatred of blacks around
> that time."
>
> QUEEN ELIZABETH DIED IN 1603!
>
> I'm returning the essay because it is unsuitable for the purpose
> for which it was sold. I'd be delighted to argue this case in court.

To this they replied with a succinct "That's ok!", which I take as a
retraction of the demand for payment,

I encourage everyone to order one of the essays and then refuse payment.
They seem terribly timid about litigation.

Bravo! Bravo! Those who know should say so. Silence smack of an elitism
that I'm sure Mr. W.S. would not approve.
