Complete Email - Hello,

As a university professor, term paper mills are a constant, serious problem. You are probably not aware, but CloudyTags.com is unintentionally enabling illegal term paper sites (see the list below) to promote blatant cheating, plagiarism, and academic fraud.

Term paper mills are against the law. I have included a list of URLs that explain the law in 11 states, followed by a list of term paper sites that are spamming your system. In order to maintain the integrity of both your database and the worldwide educational system, I humbly request that you blacklist the illegal term paper domains listed below, delete their links, and ban the accounts responsible for posting the links ASAP.

Following are the fraudulent term paper mills that continuously submit dozens of links through your system. I have no problem setting my pride aside to literally beg you to blacklist these illegal domains and any others that you may find:

Listed below are the same usernames that the term paper mill employees use in dozens of different social bookmarking sites (all of which we are contacting). For example, if you search for "stevehomewood" in Google, you will see his SPAM account for Essay-Paper.net in practically every social bookmark site in existence. Many (but not all) of these usernames are currently registered with CloudyTags. Please delete their existing accounts ASAP and ban all of the usernames so that they cannot sign-up in the future. They link only to term paper sites, some with up to 300 links:

Please do not permanently ruin your site's reputation in academia by enabling term paper mills to corrupt our youth. When you give backlinks to these crooks, you are actually increasing their rank in the search engines, which enables them to reach (and corrupt) more students. My research shows that your links are one of these charlatans' main sources of advertising. They submit hundreds of keyword-based links involving "custom essay," "term paper," "dissertation," "essays," and "research paper."

Teaching is hard enough already, so I (and all other educators around the world who are paying close attention to this issue) would truly appreciate it if CloudyTags would do mankind a humanitarian service by deleting the hundreds of SPAM links to illegal term paper mills. Please show the academic community that CloudyTags cares about the world's youth and practices corporate responsibility.

On a personal level, you wouldn't want your sick or elderly relative to be treated by a doctor who cheated on all of his exams, would you? Term paper mills sell medical school papers, as well as ready-made, doctoral dissertations on law, finance, taxes, etc. for students to turn in as their own work and fraudulently pass courses! This is not only an immoral (and illegal in many countries) business practice, but a real danger to society. Students who cheat their way through high school and college get hired under false pretenses to do extremely sensitive jobs for which they are not truly qualified. As a result, innocent people get hurt.

I would truly appreciate a response, as these illegal sites are compromising children's morality and the world-wide educational system in general. Children are the future. We must protect them from the deviants who prey on them. You can make a huge difference.

Please advise.

Thank you for your time and understanding,
Linda McDurban
