Well to steal an idea and take credit is something especially if u do not site where its from. I feel its sometimes harsh to punish people for copying ideas because most points of view are already covered by books and magazines so its hard to find your own opinion and to word it separate from other same opinions

I think the internet really has decreased plagiarism.

Very true now, but keep in mind that it was the internet that caused the spike in plagiarism in the first place!

I like to use noodle tools to cite sources and it organizes info too. Also most .edu, .gov sites have how to site the source at the bottom.

People need to lighten up about plagiarism. If money is not involved and you share the same view points as another person and don't want to spend time typing the exact same thing more or less, why not copy and paste it? It wouldn't technically be plagiarizing (As long as you point out you did not write it yourself)

Plagiarism is a easy way to get an A on a assignment. Yet, chances are you're going to get caught and if you're an adult you can get sued for a bunch of money. Probably most people have done it, but there are ways to go around plagiarism. Just read the information and put it into your own words, it's that easy! It might take longer but you'll still get a good grade (in school) and you wont get sued (adults!)

If any portion of your post has been copied from somewhere else besides your own work, then a source MUST be provided.

You can copy and paste it, just cite it.

and I concur that internet has indeed played a big role in plagerism. Without the internet, the local liibrary would probably be packed to the max.

Plagiarism is one thing I cannot stand. I hate when people copy and paste entries on websites and do not cite it. Most teachers can see when something is plagiarized. People are too lazy to write something and too lazy to just cite things.

For some reason, my English Teacher explains that Google is not reliable. She says that Google sorts out information by popularity. If you think about that is true.

Not even Wikipedia is reliable for obvious reasons.

Only good reliable sources are primary sources such as, books, newspapers, objects. Even son websites will be relliable (Government databases). Those are some of the most reliable sources you can ever use.
