The War On Plagiarism Continues

The very first paper I graded this semester contained a massive amount of blatant word for word plagiarism. The entire first page consisted of two long paragraphs copied verbatim from an Internet site without any attribution. I am failing the student for the course and recommending to my department chairman that he be expelled from the program. I hope that this action has a deterrent effect upon other students.
