I had a similar experience at *** a few years ago. The first assignment, I
very carefully wrote in short, concise answers to the questions, and was
given the lowest grade of the class. When I asked why, I was shown another
paper which was pages and pages of web pages cut-N-pasted into the
assignment. Much of it wasn't even relevant.
For the next assignment, I quoted the majority of the Linux kernel source
code, and the linux kernel reference manual for >270 pages and got the
highest grade. Which only proved that he never even opened my assignment, he
judged it on thickness alone!
