Last week it was posted that it would arrive earlier than scheduled, by the end of the day on 3 May
. . .[/QUOTE] Had they not done that, I would not be as annoyed! It is on the truck for delivery today, the original date. I stand by the idea that it was, "marking time because the vendor didn't pay for faster transport." One other note of interest: it traveled by my house overnight to move it to another city.

Here is a friendly snake we found by our doorstep a few days ago. All stretched out he was maybe 4' long.

We relocated him to a nice wooded area about ½ of a mile from our house.

That doesn't make me go "Hmmm". It makes me go "Cool!" :smile:

They even plagiarised the "I promise not to plagiarise" essay. :tu:

Why weren't the cheaters all both failed and expelled, with the reason "persistent cheating" (and where applicable, " & repeated lying about the well documented cheating& lying") prominently and permanently displayed in their transcripts? Actions have consequences. Rightly.

The consequences are no secret. There are no doubt thousands of posted policy statements online.

There's also a flip side to this sort of story:

[url=https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/27/technology/college-students-cheating-software-honorlock.html]Accused of Cheating by an Algorithm, and a Professor She Had Never Met[/url] - NY Times

Maybe the problem is overreliance on Tech? The time the self-described "multidimensionally empathetic" teacher needed to compose that overlong online manifesto and wasted in the black hole of online-chatting and buyswork - and may we presume proper royalies for all those stock images used therein were paid? - could have been spent putting together a list of N distinct questions about the material taught, assign each student one, have them hand-write answers to either be dropped off at a collection site at the school or scanned and e-mailed in, then use his own judgment as to how well each grasped the material.

This report completely devalues a degree from CUNY (City University of New York).

[QUOTE=ewmayer;606905]There's also a flip side to this sort of story: ...[/QUOTE]And there is a third way to look at it.

Employers want results, and usually encourage everyone to work together to deliver good results quickly. So the students should be perfect for employers. They were willing to help each other, and got the results quickly and perfectly. So all should pass with A's (except for those anti-social lone misfits doing things the hard way and wasting time repeating work already done.). :tu:
