Plagiarism in advertising: Kathryn Harper's Back Link Spam for essaysservice.com

essayservice.com: mike in tucson, mortgage lender

  1. essayservice.com: mike in tucson, mortgage lenderKathryn Harper most likely is not her real name.  English certainly is not her mother tongue. (Read the comment above.  Do it slowly, and read out loud.)
  2. ...and although she's spamming for a website that offers "top quality writing service," the spammer's comment on my blog gets a grade of "F" for the following:
  • content,
  • sentence structure,
  • grammatical coherency and
  • verb construction.

 

What's the plural of Thesis?

essayservice.com: mike in tucson, mortgage lenderI went to the website by clicking the live link in the spam comment.  Since the spammer has poor English writing skills, I wanted to see about the website itself.  I found what I expected.

Essaysservice.com provides THESISES.  Really?! Thee...sis...es?!  Three syllables?  Theses is the plural of thesis, and has only two syllables.

Two years before I was born, George Orwell wrote an essay titled "Politics and the English Language."  It's become a classic.  Orwell's essay posits that "the English language is in a bad way."  That was 1946.  Imagine what he would think today.

Conclusion:  If you're intent on getting a good grade, don't hire Essays Service!

Think about it.  If you're looking for help writing an essay or a term paper for your class, you're doing for one of two reasons.  Either it's because you don't have the best writing skills, or it's because your time constraints pretty tight. 

Either way, it stands to reason that you want a good grade for your paper.  Am I right? 

Okay, then.  You wouldn't want to pay anyone at essaysservice.com to help you.  No matter how bad your writing skills, I expect you'll get a better grade on your own than you will with these spamming idiots!

I can't stand improper grammar. It makes someone who's actually very successful seem unintelligent. My advice would be to PROOF anything and everything going out with your name attached. Even the best assistant can make an error that will cost you business.

If it was in a bad way back then, it has officially died by now.  So sad to see, and read.  Oh, the good old days.  It truly saddens me.

Mike, I usually just chuckle and hit 'report' when I get these offers. The grammer is atrocious, and the comments nonsensical. Glad to see you took it a step further, and sent out all those links. When someone Google's essayservice.com, your post should appear! Poetic justice, I'd say.

I have not gotten this particular spam. But I did get one that promised they could help you to get a master's degree by writing a dissertation on my Hopkinton Doughboy Statue.

Mike,

You don't get it.

It is most likely a sites owner from India or Pakistan who use Xrumer or Scrapebox to insert thousands of reply to posts with a link in there as their site or affiliate. They just build backlinks for better PR.

Those response even use token to spin sentences, making nonsense replies. It's just for backlinks.

Once you spot those, you may just get them into your spam box...

I dislike SPAM. However, there are people that will buy from them. I simply report SPAM to AR to receive my 10 points.

Apparently you let

 

Your paper got your down.

 

At least it's easy to spot, I bet they'll want to talk to you about marketing.  A spammer hits your blog and you write a blogpost about it. For them, it's a huge win, they just wanted the backlinks.

Great post! In my past business life, I have been a technical writer, editor, and a proofreader (maybe I should say "proof reader" to keep things consistent). Nothing says "File 13" or "delete key" louder than this kind of language abuse.

I've been in process of reporting a lot of this.  I think so far, I've gotten over 2000 pts and maybe as high as 4,000 pts.  I need to check the #'s.  can't believe how much spam they have on here.  I've been doing searches so the process is very quick.

Mike - we get so much spam each day and I am surprised you checked this one out. I keep getting spam saying it is from the FBI, so I have started forwarding it to the REAL FBI to let them take care of it.

Mike, you're making me feel sad - I must not be very popular.  I've only had one spammer for UGH (yes, spelled that way instead of UGG) boots.  Like you, I'm sure it was a VERY legitimate direct contact from the Australian company. 

I guess I need to get more AR points so I can get more spam, like you, LOL. 

Hope your day is going well.

Mike,

It would be nice, if these people spoke English, but then again, the ones who do, still produce "junk".

Not much has been said about folks in such poor shape, linguistically speaking, they actually use this service so clearly lacking anything worth purchasing.  Very sad!
