Need help with my writing homework on Dilema Persuade Others to Execute My Decision. Write a 1250 word paper answering; Timothy could use the following argument of dismissing William’s reservation of giving him access, that it does not hurt anybody and that William should give something in return for his internships. In order to convince Timothy to refrain from asking for William’s university account information, William could argue that it is also not worth it for Timothy to ask for his university access information because it could also potentially put Timothy in trouble as much as it would to William. He could run the risk of tarnishing his reputation, face criminal litigation that would ultimately lead to loss of business as much as it would jeopardize William’s tenure in the university with the possibility of being expelled because of giving out access to the university database.
As an opening argument, Timothy will likely persuade William that nobody will know that he gave his username and password to him unless of course if William will tell it to the school administrators or to any person. He may even dismiss it as unimportant because he is merely asking for words – a username and password which he can also have from other students if he chose to. He can also rebuke William that he is lucky because he had been “trusted” by Timothy to be his source of access to the university database. As a counterargument, William however does not have to go back to the argument raised by Timothy of not worrying to be caught because no one has to know and that it can be easily be kept a secret. Instead, he can counter-argue that it is under the school’s regulation that username and passwords are not to be shared with anyone. He can cite that he might be dismissed from the university for sharing his personal account information effectively forfeiting all the units he earned from the university. It would also help his cause in persuading Timothy to refrain from asking his username and password to mention that he may also be held liable for asking his username and password to have access to the university database.
