    Well, I do not think that this is a big deal. Though I understand how these students were surprised to get that many emails. It feels even nice.

I hope it won’t be an excuse for them for not doing their home assignment and turning to cheap custom essay online writing service. Otherwise, I’d be really disappointed if they did that way. As for the person who sent out those emails….don’t be too strict to him. Nothing bad has happened, right?
