      Yes, as it stands now, the quotes can be paraphrased, but there are some other things that I need to talk to you about. I’ll comment on these things when I submit my entry, which should be sometime before the deadline.

    Dear Contest Holder,
    Your attached document has 38% plagiarism in it. I can correct those, but not under a contest, as it is not a guaranteed work.
    Thanks

      Hello, would it bother you if I asked you to show me the unquoted quotes? Do you think these can be formatted as quotes and this would be a solution? Or if deleted, would the content suffer?
