The essay has now been removed from the website, and the issue of plagiarism will be pursued according to the Faculty of Arts’ quite¬†stringent regulations and procedures governing academic integrity. I will inform you of the outcome in due course.

I complained publicly, so now it’s only fair to publicly prolcaim my appreciation that York U is taking the situation seriously. The e-mails from York just keep coming… and I’m sure that the York faculty and administrators will end up investing a hundred times more energy than the students in question saved by not bothering to cite my work properly.
