    The essay is bumpy and reads like parts of it are copied from sources. It contradicts itself and lacks a clear definition of the main topic. I would give the essay back to you and ask you to re-write it.

    But I am not a teacher, so you lucked out.
    No, I didn't copy anything from anywhere. Screw you if you say that.

    Steady – I think you've misinterpreted Susie's post. It relates to the impression the essay might give, not the facts in the case. The advice was frank but not unsympathetic (see the last line).

    "What do you think?" can be a very dangerous question!

    If you ask that question, be prepared to hear (and sccept) opinions.

    Opinion can be bias..therefore it's dangerous. And I know that you are not a teacher...just opinion...Opinion is good.
