Let's be honest, plagiarism, that ugly "P" word, is still an issue today; and not just for students who don't understand that their teacher can check for such things through magical devices called computers, but also for the working adult who is supposed to be the example.

Seventy characters (including spaces) or under. I know that sounds short, but a well-written site description will easily fit that.
