In front of the computer...
Has anyone read the Sun Herald today??
Apparently english markers were not impressed as english Change essays were unoriginal, and seemingly all copied from sample essays - such as those on BOS.
It said that BOS has been pulled down, but it doesnt seem to be the case

They said it HAS been pulled down, which is obviously hasn't.
One of the most popular websites - jokingly called boredofstudies.org - has been pulled down...
