More fun with Grammarly, the BFF of Lazy, Illiterate Twits....
...who don't want own the fact that they are lazy, illiterate twits and actually DO something about it instead of embracing this electronic crutch?
Anyone want to comment on the fact this college student is using Grammarly to write a term paper on "The Power of Words?"
Anyone want to comment on the fact that this college student seems completely incapable of constructing a sentence without resorting to cliche's, buzzwords, or outright plagiarism?
Will this college student ever admit that if she had been born five years earlier, her college career would have ended in the first semester because she's an illiterate doofus who has no business taking up a seat in a class which should be occupied by an actual student with actual writing skills, or at least someone who is interested in improving her writing skills rather than letting an online editing program do her writing for her?
Anyone else wonder why teachers even bother assigning research papers or any kind of writing that takes place outside the classroom when we've got programs like Grammarly out there? Unless the student is sitting right in front of you writing in longhand, how do you even know it's her work?
Is it time to admit that Grammarly is to English skills what the calculator is to Math skills, and that asking people to learn how to write is the modern version of asking them to work out calculations using a pencil and paper? I mean, in a world where "do research" means "Ask Google," what's the point of even pretending anymore?
