I have not seen nor heard of this particular ranting truism by Lear;
however, I have downloaded an essay about it from
www.plagiarizedpedagogy.com.  I find all of the materials for my
preemptive presentations there.  You know what they say, if you can't
divide your kingdom peacefully between heirs, teach.

Graham Hall hopes that "all the Buster Bloodvessels who are vexed by
their student's alleged potential propensity for plagiarism have taken
due note of Lear's great condemnation at 4.6.154-170".

Indeed... or Hamlet's: "Use every man after his desert, and who would
'scape whipping?"

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.2764 Re: Plagiarism

Like Joseph Sullivan, I create certain restrictions that discourage
plagiarism in my students' essay assignments.  For my literature
classes, the most effective restriction is to place two or three
appropriate books or articles on reserve and require a reference to at
least one of them.  I have noticed that term-paper-selling websites
don't let you view the Works Cited pages of the papers for sale.

As for Ed Kranz's words about policing -- yesterday, using yahoo, I
discovered that two of my comp students had lifted passages from various
websites to paste into their papers.  The pleasure of nailing the
cheaters was short-lived, soon replaced by sadness and disappointment.
I do hope they learned something more than "Don't retake the class with
Weil".  But I'm not counting on it.
