:roll: That's beyond stupid. He'd done 90% of the work, all he had to do was reword the source and they'd never have caught him. Unless, of course, he actually didn't understand the subject matter and was just mashing random sources into a semi-coherent whole.

The real question is, why did the Naval Postgraduate School not pick up on this? It's 2013, there was software that did that by then and even if they didn't have they software they have an obligation to check. Who else has slipped through the net?

LOL, yeah a lot of my papers were like that. "Don't use wiki as a source."

Okay, sure... so instead of sourcing the wiki page itself I'm going to source off the links on the wiki page, and reword everything.

edit: You know, that vid on CNN of Trump bouncing to that Saudi sword dance is amusing. Almost as amusing as...

My Uni uses URKUND since 2008.

From what I hear it really put a stop to the copy-pasted essays epidemic of the early to mid 2000s :ugeek:

In 2010 we had a do a group presentation on genocide. Our group covered the stuff that went on during the Yugoslav wars, and someone else did Armenian genocide. Everyone else did Rwanda which was when I started to see red flags. Almost everyone had the same pictures, similar looking slides, almost as if they had downloaded a pre-existing PowerPoint slide and made some slight alterations to it. The professor didn't even seem to notice since almost all those people ended up scoring high.
