I think I’m going to be sick…

Someone just followed me on Twitter and their username intrigued me, so I looked at their profile. Absolutely no offence is intended to that person, who I’m sure is delightful and honorable and all the rest. But when I saw the company they worked for, I simply couldn’t believe my eyes. I’ve heard of private tutors, of course, and I’m all for that. What I didn’t know (I can be so naive sometimes) is that there are companies out there who will actually do your homework for you! I don’t mean they’ll help you to understand the subject so that you can do it, I mean that their websites are quite explicit that they’ll do the work and all you have to do is hand it in!
How sick is that? You can buy the answer without actually having to go to the trouble of learning anything; get a good coursework mark without it actually meaning anything. And the companies make it sound like such cheating and deceit is perfectly reasonable.
“Be sure that math assignments completed by our experts will be error-free”
“You can send us assignments related with any subject and we will get it solved by our best tutors.”
“Math, physics and programming homework problems … presuppose usage [sic] of previous course material that may have been forgotten.” Well, duh!
The lunacy of a world in which such a thing exists doesn’t even need discussion. It speaks for itself. We’re doomed. Abandon ship!
