[QUOTE=Raiyuu][font=trebuchet ms]You'd be surprised how easily experienced teaching staff can spot plagiarism just by the 'voice' used in writing it. Of course, reworking helps if you're going down that road - one utter twerp at my school tried to get away with finding a relevant website and just hitting [b]Print[/b] - it came out with the URL printed in the footer and he handed it in anyway. Didn't end well for him.

I'll leave you all with [URL=http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Wikipedians][u]this[/u][/URL] sobering treatise on the Internet phenomenon known as the Wikipedian.[/font][/QUOTE]

I don't know if its just my teachers or anything but I have used Wikipedia for sources in many of my projects and none of my teachers have said anything about not using it before. It could be that since I also get things from other sources that helps cover that though.[/FONT].[/SIZE][/COLOR][/QUOTE]
As a general rule you should never cite from encyclopedias.

Also, many thanks for bringing up the leading repository of absolute truths on the Internet. Everyone [i]must[/i] check it out.[/COLOR]
