I really think it is unethical and Fiverr should do something about it


#1

Hi everyone,
I have seen so many buyers asking for someone to help them with their school homework, and they get so many offers from fiverr freelancers, and I also many freelancers offering to do students’ homework, not tutoring but actually doing their homework, this is not only unethical but illegal too, for the freelancers who are encouraging this are evil and robbing these kids and stupid adults from their future for few dollars and it has unseen damages to society, because some these people might end up medical professions or other other professions, cause huge damages to lives and more. I think fiverr should do something about. What do you think?

It bothers me too but there is nothing that can be done. It happens offline too, like when parents complete projects for kids.

Hmm. Unethical, maybe. Illegal, no. Maybe against the school/college/universities policies.

There’s lot of us won’t do homework or assignments but it’s probably not up to Fiverr to police this given that it isn’t illegal (anywhere as far as I know).

Happens out in the real world too. There was a thick kid at my grammar school who shouldn’t’ve been there, but his father was, and is, a famous rich person.

Kid got a new ID, had a bodyguard and plenty of “help”. The school got a nice boost in donations and what have you.

Coming to Fiverr to a “doctor” to write your “academic thesis” in “anything” ultimately won’t change much. The world is run by rich and corrupt people. Let the greedy sellers feed off the bottom end of the market. Fiverr’s not going to do much about it unless the WSJ kicks up a fuss about it–but they’re too busy chasing alleged anti-semites for page views and $$$ right now.

There have been people selling term papers as long as there have been colleges.

Do you know what you call a guy who makes it through medical school entirely on term papers he bought for $5 each?

“Doctor.”

It a moral thing and I am sure it is illegal too or I hope so… @emmaki that parents is damaging his kid and he doesn’t even know, maybe the father thinks too much money his son won’t need to work for the rest of his life, but it is not about money, it is about building the mind and the characters and his is raising a rich, dumb kid who might commit crime one day because of undeveloped and spoiled brain of his or harm himself, and stupidity and lack of education provides many ways one can harm himself … But you all right, the world is full of greedy low lives who would do anything for few dollars… and I have no respect a freelancer offering to do other’s homework and all the respect for those who offer tutoring classes but not those who hide their assignment doing under tutoring name… shame on them…

That kid is a millionaire, and heir to a fortune. He’s fine. I haven’t seen him for almost 2 decades now. I’m sure he’s fine though, aside from being thick as two short planks, he was a decent guy and he probably benefited from being in our environment.

I also note that you have taken to criticizing people for transcribing at $5/hour, which they have since altered.

You seem very concerned about what other people are doing. That’s not very healthy. Trust me, if you knew who I was talking about re: the kid, you’d be saying something very different.

Did you copy what I said word for word or are we just on the same wavelength?


#10

same in my case dear


#11

So that must be one of those amazing coincidences that happen sometimes, that you said the EXACT thing I said.

I thought I had seen it all…

However, she is an expert. You are not. So I award the point to Sarah. All hail Sarah the Expert!


#15

Expert on what? Copying what someone just said?

Couldn’t help it. This just came up in me…

You had Trump at grammar school? He didn’t dig it though, did he?


#18

@misscrystal See, we are at the same level.


#19

See, we are at the same level.

I am an expert at weaving baskets out of lava. It’s true, because I’ve just said it. That’s why I know Sarah is an expert. You would have to ask her about her expertise, though.

She is an expert at copy paste though–that only gig of hers with reviews can be found on other sites.

In fact, I will develop Responsive Website in WordPress

But also from sellers on other sites in Dhaka, Kampala etc.
