Do people actually plagiarize essays put up here?

<p>I was just wondering if people really do steal ideas and things off essays posted here...</p>

<p>I'm a bit paranoid because a couple of months ago I posted a draft of essay up.... :s
Was it a really stupid thing to do?</p>

<p>just to be on the safe side, i wouldn't post such things on a public forum</p>

<p>o damnnn..... i posted my essay up :(</p>

<p>but chances are nothing will happen, don't sweat this</p>
