Dear Dr. Collins:

I think you should be more gentle towrads Dr. Mone. I can
understand his (Dr. Mone's) frustration with your reply.
He pointed out a serous AND GROWING problem of using
(misusing) Intenet for short cuts and intellectual 
shoplifting in education - the theme which is important to 
many of us who do teaching (and do value this part of our 
activity). And all you apparently have found in Dr. Mone's 
message is picking on few mispels which we all know very 
common to most using e-mail (not all have/use spellchecks).

You'd better comment on the essense of the problem: what 
are YOUR constructive suggestions how the problem can be
addressed ? (I have mine, but refrain in this poster, and
only post them if this tread will go any serious).

Yours truly
