Not cheating now cheating would be taking every answer and not doing it myself. For you to say that they are losers, dude grow up at least they are going to college and trying to better their life everyone needs a little help in life, I bet your a spoiled little brat who gets everything handed to them. Grow up. Stop bashing on everyone else.

  • CheckPoint: Comprehensive Grammar CheckPoint -

    If someone wants to "cheat" once, or here or there, it is up to that person and not for a negative person to judge. No one is a better person for putting someone else down, all it does is expose poor character. A "real educated" person will be consructive and not destructive.
