I think they are horrible and feed a culture of dishonesty (not to mention that I wouldn't want to deal with any "professional" in any field who had to pay someone else to write all or part of their dissertation for them), and I would NEVER use or write for a service like that.
Well, I clicked on it and my SiteAdvisor told me "Stay away from this webpage!" so, no.
hmm. if you do not have the available time to write assigned papers, then maybe you do not deserve a degree. not YOU as in the OP but like, in general.

Right. Also part of going to school is learning to write under pressure and to manage time. If you can't do these things, you shouldn't be in school.
No, and HELL NAW.
If you don't do the work, you haven't earned the degree. It's that simple. College sucks ass a lot of time and I have doubts about much of its intellectual/educational integrity but such sites are not good alternatives to doing coursework. Whether or not you were learning anything before, you sure won't be when you have someone else write your papers for you.
Also, I've never understood how people get away with it. Do people write with so little voice that professors can't tell their writing apart from someone else's?
That last thing is huge. I've read a bunch of college papers, and even the ones that aren't good writers have idiosyncrasies that would be missing if you got one of these "professional" papers from them.
How would a teacher recognize a student's writing if it's their first paper with them?
My thought on the last is that many lecture hall classes only have one big paper due at the end of the semester, so maybe that would facilitate getting away with it.
At my school nearly every single professor uses turnitin for papers and they have no problem going after you if they think you've cheated.
no no no. To me, that's cheating.
I don't know how someone could even argue that it's NOT cheating!
I know someone who completes people's online courses for them. He drew the line at not working with high school students, only college students. I don't agree with it at all. It's cheating, through and through.
I just wonder, if people have to pay others to do their coursework for them, what are they going to do when they have a job?
I really don't know. I mean, when I was in school, there were definitely times where I would have loved someone to do an individual assignment for me because I was just swamped. But really, I would never actually do it. Kind of like I wouldn't mind shipping my kids off to boarding school right now, but I really wouldn't actually do it.
Have you ever worked with people who suck at their job or just delegate? There are tons of them! haha
Maybe they're bad at the academic side of stuff but great at the practical side of things?
Honestly, they just get someone else to do the work then too. They usually get promoted to middle management because that's how the world works.:)
No. It is unethical and lazy. Why do you think you deserve to get the degree if you aren't willing to put in the work? That's just awful.
they do not have enough time available to write assigned papers and still keep up with their regular studies, their job and other activities.
Yeah...I worked, raised three children, was 100% responsible for the household chores/upkeep/whatnot, got pregnant, had the baby a week before my thesis was due and I STILL managed to finish my thesis, on top of writing another 25 page paper for another class and study for (and get A's) on two final exams in other classes.
I don't care who you are, you have time to do your own damn work.
So...obviously I'd never use one of those sites. But you want to know what the really bad thing is? The MAIN reason I wouldn't use one is that I wouldn't trust it to do a good enough job. I'd be too afraid it would suck and I wouldn't get an A.
No, and no, and if I caught my students out on plagiarism I'd make sure they they get no bachelor or master whatsoever, ever.
