I'm quite excited to report that plagiarism is no longer "a big deal", as my student who took an entire paragraph of someone else's writing (from our textbook, no less) has informed me that this is a minor gaffe and not something I should be "punishing" them for.
Student, you are a lifesaver. In that case, I can't wait to stop having to read all these papers!
End of the term, you are awesome.
