I've been REALLY bored with debating lately, so I decided to conduct a study on DDO. I know I am going to check how many people plagiarize. Any ideas for what else I should do?

Well, you should do more of it to the extent that you're bored.

Here is what you should do:

1. Compile a list of twenty random numbers from 1 to 50.
2. Mark a random debate.
3. Use the twenty random numbers to mark the debates that distance away from the marked debate. For example, if three of the numbers were 5, 6, and 10, you would mark the fifth, the sixth, and the tenth debate away from the original marked debate.
4. Use a single, objective tool (should be able to find some online) to find out if something was plagiarized, using non-biased, pre-formulated criteria for what counts as "plagiarized.
5. Keep track of the number of ROUNDS (not debates) were plagiarized.
6. DO NOT make a note of the plagiarism, vote on the debate, or tell anyone about the plagiarism. Actually, you probably shouldn't even talk more about plagiarism or people may change their plagiarizing behavior as a result.
7. Exclude any debates of those who commented on this forum (you may want to shut it down quickly).
8. Repeat this same technique once every month on the same day of the week with the original marked debate being at approximately the same time of day, for the course of three or so months. To make it shorter make it once a week for several weeks, to make it longer repeat it once every season for a year or more. (Longer garners you more generalizable data).
9. If you'd like, we can make this more interesting by investigating other variables in order to find correlations.
10. Analyze the data
11. Give it to Juggle (all data MUST be anonymous)
12. Let everyone know about it afterword.

Well, perhaps we'll get this started soon, then.
