Buying custom research papers on the Internet is not cheating
Using the Internet for studying purposes often brings up the question of cheating. Many students have been purchasing custom research papers on the Internet recently, and it has caused a great deal of controversy in the education system. Custom writing often refers to as cheating or plagiarism. However, one should call things by their proper names, and understand what the essence of cheating is.
Wikipedia defines cheating “as an act of deception, fraud, trickery, imposture, or imposition. Cheating characteristically is employed to create an unfair advantage, usually in one's own interest, and often at the expense of others.”
Custom writing can’t be labeled as cheating, because getting an outside help is ethical, and should be treated as delegating your writing assignments to professional writers, rather than cheating. When you consult your lawyer you don’t cheat by using his legal advice, because you pay him for his knowledge. Custom writing is a case in point.
It is a common survival formula, when you pay money for someone’s knowledge and experience, after all you can be knowledgeable in all areas of expertise. Moreover, custom writing professionals offer substantial support, just as private tutors actually do. They aim at guiding students to good writing techniques, not merely at helping lazy students get through intellectually strenuous classes.
Indeed, they do not condone cheating in any form and act to discourage it!
