    Yes! Try to delete it right away!

    So yes to the original question? Because then I would feel better about leaving the essays up. I do want feedback on them, but I just don't want them to be copied obviously.

    Yes, colleges do check for plagiarism. I suggest taking yours down!

    If they do check for plagiarism would I still need to be worried about people stealing my stuff? I mean they won't do it if they're going to get caught. . .
