Some of it may come from the way I've changed giving assignments to students, so that they can't just write a canned paper on a generic topic and hope to do well; they have to address quite specific concerns we've discussed in class and with quite specific readings in mind, and I doubt that a paid-writer could put in enough time for this to be worth it.
