  • Here’s a tip. If you’re going to accuse someone of plagiarism, make sure he’s not plagiarizing himself.
  • Speaking of plagiarism, it’s probably not a good idea to steal your honor code.
  • I have to come up with one of these.
  • The Hillarys and the Huckabees. I like it.
  • How lovely. People get foreclosed on and trash the house, demonstrating the same responsible behavior that got them foreclosed on in the first place.

      Just out of curiosity, why is it so terrible to “plagiarize” your honor code? Unlike, say, a scholarly work, an honor code is a purely functional document. An honor code makes no pretense of originality; it merely clarifies the university’s policy on a particular topic. If there exists a particularly good example already written, why shouldn’t other universities copy it? Surely that is better than rolling their own and winding up with something that might be vague, riddled with loopholes, or otherwise unsuitable.

      By way of analogy, if a state legislature passed a bill that was later found to have been copied from another state’s statutes, would you accuse the legislature of “plagiarizing” the other state’s laws?
