Ghost Papers and Grammar Errors

A spammer left a comment in my Live Journal advertising the services of an essay mill called “Ghost Papers”. At the bottom of this nefarious organisation’s page is the disclaimer, “After receiving your thesis, you can only revise if the theses [sic] is not completely based on your details.” Another sentence contains a less serious grammar error but manages to combine hypocrisy with irony: “We are strictly against plagiarism hence; all term papers are proof-read manually before delivery.

    I also got a comment from ghostpapers saying “Thank you for your contribution”. I have definitely not contributed to any paper mills! Through Google search, I have discovered that this person often comments on people’s blogs, thanking them for information, often in execrable English. I have no idea how they could possibly use this post for a term paper!

      I think it’s a bot that picks up on keywords; in your case, it probably lit up when it read “freshman” and “professors”.
