I beg your pardon? I've never cheated, nor been tempted to in any exam in college, ever. Speak for yourself.

For the nth time, "although it dire circumstances one could see exceptions". No. Just No.

You have a warped view of academic honesty.
1. Never been tempted to cheat? I believe you are a generally moral person who has resisted temptations to cheat or engage in immoral behaviour. But never tempted? Never? I don't believe you. Every person is tempted at one time or another in their lives. You have an unrealistic view of the human condition.

2. Lay off the personal attacks. It seems to me that you're covering up your own past temptations to justify your holier than thou academic McCarthyism. Don't you dare tell me that I have a warped view of academic honesty. I never attempted to justify cheating under any normal circumstances and I'm appalled at your blatant disrespect towards another member of this forum who is trying to engage in ethical inquiry.

3. You have yet to back up any of your assertions. Let me ask you this: Is homicide never justified?

No, I was never tempted to cheat. Because I studied and knew what I was doing. Watch your accusations.

I'm not here to discuss homicide with you.

Here is an excerpt from our code of conduct:

Responsibility to Report Academic Dishonesty

Academic dishonesty is a corrosive force in the academic life of a university. It jeopardizes the quality of education and depreciates the genuine achievements of others. It is, without reservation, a responsibility of all members of the campus community to actively deter it. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of academic dishonesty is not a neutral act. Histories of institutions demonstrate that a laissez-faire response will reinforce, perpetuate, and enlarge the scope of such misconduct. Institutional reputations for academic dishonesty are regrettable aspects of modern education. These reputations become self-fulfilling and grow, unless vigorously challenged by students and faculty alike.

All members of the University community, students, faculty, and staff share the responsibility and authority to challenge and make known acts of apparent academic dishonesty.
I suggest you take the time to read the ethics held at a real university.

I suggest you take the time to read the thread. Did you bother to read one of my posts appearing earlier in this thread? D'oh! Looks like you're more interested in weird personal attacks rather than the discussion at hand.

I don't believe that you have never been tempted to cheat in life. You are clearly being dishonest.

Why are you running away from the quesiton? Could it be that there are exceptions to every ethical rule? Could it be that you're cornered? Checkmate.

I'm not going to waste any more time on this. I'm simply going to report you. Have a nice day.

Report me to whom? Santa Claus? You have the nerve to question my academic honesty and then get your knickers in a twist when I take umbridge with that? Pathetic.

I'm not sure if you're trolling or what, but engaging in personal attacks, and then threatening to report a user just because they disagree with you is not the mark of someone who is sure of his position.

You are being dishonest when you say:

Lay off the personal attacks. It seems to me that you're covering up your own past temptations to justify your holier than thou academic McCarthyism. Don't you dare tell me that I have a warped view of academic honesty. I never attempted to justify cheating under any normal circumstances and I'm appalled at your blatant disrespect towards another member of this forum who is trying to engage in ethical inquiry.
a.) I'm not covering up past temptations - so don't make any unfounded claims.

b.) You do have a warped view of academic honesty if you think its ok to cheat provided its not under "normal circumstances". That goes against the very grain of academic honesty. YOU have said, multiple times now, that "it was not under exceptional circumstance when he cheated, so he doesnt hurt his classmates so long as he didn't bust the curve". This is not an example to set in a physicsforums to the students who view here.

He's got a lot of nerve. If he can't deal with other viewpoints, he should refrain from posting I never condoned cheating. Cyrus never bothered to read my posts, including the one outlining my point: We must try to understand why people cheat if we intend to end cheating in universities. I explored the possibility that ethical maxims may not extend to every possible conceivable scenario, and this guy goes awol. That's a philosophical questioned debated in philosophy departmets on a daily basis in universities around the world. He's got to come to terms with freedom of inquiry, read people's posts, and show some respect for other members of this board.

He means report the posts to the Mentors. Thread locked -- too much bickering, bordering on personal insults and trying to rile others. That's against the PF rules.
