My guess is no student is in any danger of getting busted for plagiarizing a OTNOT post.

The purpose of Turnitin is so professors and editors can upload term papers and submissions and have them screened for similarities to online postings. It's a way to catch students and authors who cut and paste the work of others.

But what if you changed the paper a bit, put it in quotes and wrote "Fixed" at the end? Would that work?

I imagine it would compare two papers and give a percentage of the amount of the same content. For example if you took the common words between the two leaving out the obvious 'I' "the" 'of' ex-cetera there compared their placement then an instructor would know which papers to compare for content.

Turnitin gives a percentage of similarity score. Doing that might lower the percentage a bit, but would not eliminate flagging the plagarized document.
