Re: [vox] code sleuths needed - cheating suspected

I tend to agree with this.  Also the main purpose of doing 
homework is (or should be) to learn.  If a student copies 
someone else's work, they are mostly cheating themselves 
and will not do very well at exam time.

Here's a question to ask: "Wouldn't you rather understand 
this than fool me into thinking you understand it?".
