Fontana Labs' students think he looks dumb.
...one of my students thinks, well, maybe he won't notice if I paste whole paragraphs from the Stanford Encyclopedia into my essay. He won't get the least bit suspicious when a first-year college student quotes from the original latin. I'm sure he doesn't know how to use Google.
This reminds me of a case John had once. One of his students plagiarized something from a website so sloppily that the cut-and-pasted sections were actually in a different color and font from the rest of the text. Plagiarism so extreme that it approaches citation!
Back in the day, when I was at Columbia, one of my profs had a frat boy student plagiarize from some Edwardian English author, with the result that the paper included an extended cricket metaphor. My prof didn't know the source (and this was when students had to go to the library to find things to steal; paradoxically a more secure undertaking), so he just called the student in and asked him to explain the rules of cricket. A full, Perry Mason-style confession ensued.
