Beware of the following:
Lust: your sinful desire for a good grade leads you to the ever-so-tempting paper mills.
Gluttony: overindulgence in the works of others.
Greed: desire for a better grade than you deserve.
Sloth: sheer laziness either in failure to do your own thinking and writing, or thinking that you don’t need to follow instructions or cite according to the required format.
Wrath: inappropriate feeling of hatred, revenge or even denial towards your instructor or the institution for imposing what you feel are unjust rules.
Envy: resentment of others for their hard work and careful attention to detail.
Pride: thinking you are above the law, too clever to get caught, or too “artistic” to need to follow the required format for citation.
