Plagiarism still exists. Since we know that plagiarism is frowned upon by just about everyone, why is it still a problem?

The easiest way to catch academic thievery is through simple comparison. Everyone writes differently and so the moment an assignment does not match other writing samples that students have done makes me give their work a closer look. This closer look means giving it greater scrutiny that often leads to more questions about the paper.
