I could be a SOURCE!

Hey, my website is getting traffic! Today I received this query:
"I am looking for help with writing an analytical essay, 4 to 5 pages long on the cinematic elements of the movie Reign of Fire 2002 for fine arts 104".

Now, as you may know, I did a stunning movie review for "Reign of Fire", and I suspect our young college-student friend found it, and realized I was the perfect person to ask. I shot back the following:
"What do you mean by "help"? Suggesting ideas on the theme, mood, plot points and symbolism or critiquing your paper prior to when it's due? I can do those. Writing it for you? No.
If you're still interested, please let me know the specifics of the assignments, when it's due, and exactly what assistance you would like.
Thanks for your inquiry! I look forward to hearing more…
-Evan


I heard nothing back. Apparently "help" was a code word for "write my paper for me." When I went to school, we didn't have an Internet to plagiarize papers from, so I had to write them myself! Kids these days... However, I really like the thought of my review being source material for someone, and somewhere a professor is reading my theory of the dragons in the movie symbolizing the Chinese threat to Western domination. Even uncredited, that's way cool!
