I discussed with my supervisor, who happens to be the undergraduate studies coordinator (and so, at 32, is doing a stellar job of his academic career) about my problems with the amount of group work, and the problems therein.  He was largely sympathetic, took some points on board, but reminded me that the world sucks this way.

More significantly, he advised me that it's generally important that even though I might never choose to work with these teammates again, I should generally try to act (write my e-mails) in a way that they would want to work with me again.  He is a communication enthusiast, but says "I still haven't quite figured out how to write: 'thank you for your e-mail.  You are an arsehole.' "

Anyway, I'm not sure how my communications of last night will be taken:

Dear colleague and team-mate,

When quoting someone else's work, you need to cite it appropriately.  I don't want our team to get busted for plagiarism

Secondly,  WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING PLAGIARISING THE FIRST FUCKING PARAGRAPH OF THE WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE ON THE KYOTO PROTOCOL???  IF YOU'RE GOING TO PLAGIARISE, PICK SOMETHING A BIT LESS FUCKING OBVIOUS YOU SHIT-BRAINED FUCKTARD


Your colleague,

 NcLean
